Comments : Check cleared my bank on 6/6/12 Yes! One week exactly from date I mailed our petition..

Received NOA2 today:
Called today 1/14/13 for MNL# after waiting 9 business days from NOA2 approval. Was on hold from 6:50pm until 7:11pm so 21 mins. Nice man was very helpful. Asked for EAC #, benefitionary name, birthdate, my name, birth date. He read me our MNL#. I read it back and thanked him. All in all 3 mins on the phone once through.

Called today for interview. They could have scheduled us for Jan 24th but this is too soon due to her waiting until Monday for my financials and forms, then medical. Things are much faster than before the Holidays for sure.

Your I-129f was approved in 208 days from your NOA1 date.

Comments : I made an error and didn't sign my part as husband as I thought it was all about her ROC. They sent it write back timely. Only cost us about 7 business days due to my error and $6.40 to resend. VJ needs to update their sample form for i751 as it was the old version so I couldn't follow line item by line item. Still my error though as I should have been more thorough.

*Notice about estimates: The estimates are based off averages of other members recent experiences
(documented in their timelines) for the same benefit/petition/application at the same filing location.
Individual results may vary as every case is not always 'average'. Past performance does not necessarily
predict future results. The 'as early as date' may change over time based on current reported processing
times from members. There have historically been cases where a benefit/petition/application processing
briefly slows down or stops and this can not be predicted. Use these dates as reference only and do not
rely on them for planning. As always you should check the USCIS processing times to see if your application
is past due.

** Not all cases are transfered
