I would advise you marry her on her next visit or better still have her file Fiancé visa for you. But don’t do the mistake of taking pictures that looks like an introduction or wedding because that is a red flag.

Its clearly stated.

Your petition is under review.

You won't get anything positive until an RFE or NOA2 notice which would likely take average of a year.


If I were you, I will calm down and forget about checking status frequently. Doing this frequently will only increase your anxiety, speed up your depression catalyst and make you restless which will make your mind miserable and unsettled. Trust me, the emotional torture will never yield anything good but more bitterness. You will end up hating life and counting calenders like a girl who missed her period.


Engage in anything positive, learn a skill or do a job to keep your mind busy..



If you want to check your status, once or twice in a month is recommended.




Secondly, don't waste your time going spiritual on the process and don't waste your time calling uscis, . Uscis will never skip previous batches to attend to you even if you are Buhari's child, and the automated responder will keep telling you to call back when your PD is displayed on the site. They handle cases batch by batch and the current month petition been handled is shown on the uscis website.
When the reciept dates on uscis page matches with your PD and you didn't get any notification of RFE or NOA2, you or your spouse can then call the uscis number or go spiritual against village people.

Merry xmas

How about petitions that are already current right from filing, like cr1and co, will they wait for a year before approval too ?

A year is an average for I-130 filings. Some centers are shorter while some are longer.

To check your estimated waiting time, visit this website.
https://egov.uscis.gov/processing-times/

On the first field, select I-130

On the second field, select your service center.


The page will display your estimated waiting period. It will also display the receipt dates that are currently getting NOA2 approvals

You are right, checking frequently will only increase anxiety, nervousness and restlessness. My peace of mind was restored when I stopped checking status and focusing on another thing.

What affidavit are you talking about? I have a son too for my ex and my us citizen husband filed for my son and I. I did not see anywhere we were asked for an affidavit. The only thing is I know I have to get a letter of consent for his natural born father and submit that during NVC stage.

Did they ask for divorce letter for the father of your child??

I hear that the day people submit their documents, is the day we will be waiting still will reach 1year to approved, but I was confuse because my wife submit the documents in August 5, 2019 and they send my wife receipt that they have seen it, and later they send message to my wife that our document in under review in October 22, 2019. Do we need to be counting it from August still will reach 1year to approved or we will be counting it from October still will reach 1year to approved

Like I said earlier and I will repeat it again.

Seyi!!!!!!!!!!!!!,
Please calm down and take your mind off this petition for now if you really love yourself.

Yes, some receive their NOA1 approval faster than the other, but your waiting start counting from your PRIORITY DATE. Either you receive notice in August, October or December, the date you received notice doesn't matter, its the priority date that do matter.


As for the 1 year waiting, it depends on center. Potomac and texas are average of 7months while nebraska and California have 1 year waiting average. This duration may be longer or shorter than the estimate due to several factors.


Like I advised you earlier, I will repeat again. Take off your mind from this petition for now. Engage yourself in learning one or two skills. If you have money, enroll for online studies in any American University while waiting for your approval.

The waiting is a long ride and if you continue this way, you will end up been depressed and frustrated before your wait is over.

Its cool and good as you make enquires here, no doubt.

But I'm seeing beyond that. I'm seeing someone who wishes to join his wife as soon as possible.

But unfortunately, there is nothing you can do than to wait till whenever you get the noa2 notice.

Peace be onto you and your wife.

Hello Everyone,

I have been reading several stories about this spousal visa application and all congratulations to those that are successful also wish those to come all the best,

I would love to share my concerns and know what i am in for because my Girlfriend and i would be getting married soon any advice would be deeply appreciated

so i have applied for a student visa before that was in 2017 and i got denied twice.
The problem i am having now is the agent that applied for me altered my educational background saying i was going for a degree course and whereas i already have a degree and i had just finished my NYSC he also got documents and results from a polytechnic in Ibadan or so stating that i finished from that polytechnic

Now i want to know and need advice when filling the DS-260 form should i go ahead with what the agent had filled previously or am i to change my educational information when filling the DS-260 form.?
Re: USA Spousal Visa Process/ K3 Visa by Whitemagic: 7:52pm On Jan 22

1.Spouse visa takes a longer time to get approved than fiance visa, hence the scarcity of updates as most people are also waiting.

2. The thread is new (created on April 19. Less than year ago). Since most NOA2 approval takes a year average. I guess most members are still awaking noa2

With the current immigration ban on Nigeria, how much do you think it affects the spousal visa category?
