After 20 days the payment has not been processed. Worried about what happened.

Siam Legal - I have been working with Martin Juarez at the Bangkok office but I don't seem to be getting anywhere. 30 days have gone by and no NOA1. I called USCIS and there is no record of my petition in the system.

We were told by the law offices that the I-129F was sent on 9/20/2018 but Visa Journey does not allow a gap that wide as it was well over 30 days. Set the NOA1 date and backed the sent date out as far as it would let me 10/1/2018.

Once you get an NOA2 get the police report and medical plus everything else. Get the single cert ASAP too. It’s hard to get. You need a family member and town mayor/Village leader. Get all your translations done as the Thai docs come in. Email or call the NVC once your petition is approved. Then after the NVC notifies you it has sent it to the embassy email the embassy for the packet 3 cover letter. You have to be proactive the whole entire time. Our process was so quick except for this last leg in which I waited too long now we are about one month behind. Heed my advice above. Also if you can get the police certificate and the medical on the same trip because the hospital in Bangkok is literally 10 minutes away from the police clearance center.

*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
