Today we received an e-mail notification that our petition has arrived safely and has been forwarded to the Vermont Service Center for processing. In about 7-10 days we’ll receive a form “I-797”, which is basically a Notice of Action form. This will have our NOA1 date on it, with which we can take an educated guess at what our NOA2(Approval or denial of the petition) date will be. At the time of writing, the Vermont Service Center is currently processing petitions with a NOA1 date of November 30 2010 so they’re a good 5.5 month behind. If all goes well, I’m guessing the NOA2 will come in around November of this year. Possibly even in December.
