Hello did expedite?
Vermyndax on 2020-02-26 said:
Hi there... no, I did not expedite. I did file a K-3 visa, but it was about 5 months after submitting the I-130's. But I didn't expedite or do anything else out of the ordinary.

Did they transfer your application to Potomac?
Vermyndax on 2020-02-26 said:
I did not receive any transfer notices. When I filed, my receipt numbers began with "IOE" for "Integrated Operating Environment", but my NOA-1 came from Nebraska. This made me assume that NSC was processing our cases. However, we were approved *much* sooner than Nebraska's processing timelines, so it was obviously picked up by someone else. I don't know who, though. Maybe after I get the NOA-2 notice in the mail, I will be able to tell which center processed it.

Whats is your os for k3
Vermyndax on 2020-02-26 said:
NOA-1 date for the K-3 was January 9th, but I suspect they'll be dropping it now.
Vermyndax on 2020-05-16 said:
Received a notice on my stepdaughter's case that she was "documentarily qualified" and is ready to be scheduled for interview. My wife's case had a rejected document. I resubmitted that yesterday.
Vermyndax on 2020-06-18 said:
NVC finally accepted all documentation. We're just waiting for the appointment letter now.
Vermyndax on 2020-10-09 said:
Got our appointments, finally.

Congrats. Guess I had better get my CENOMAR/AOM as the petitioner. Great tip, thanks. Also, did your wife and step-daughter interview at the same time or same day?
Vermyndax on 2020-11-25 said:
Yes, definitely visit PSA ahead of time and have that on hand. They did interview my wife and stepdaughter at the same time.

*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
