The story about our train trip to Philadelphia will have to wait for the moment because....
We got great news this week, we received our NOA1!!!
So now our petition is in their system and this part of our journey has officially begun.
As I said, I got a bit nervous about not hearing anything yet, so Tuesday Jack decided to call the bank and see if the check was cashed. And it was, even more, it had our case number on the back. As it goes with this kind of stuff, off course the message was in the mailbox also the same day, but hey, who cares, it was great to enjoy being happy together for a few more hours extra.
Also, from now on we can check our status on line with the USCIS.
And through Visa Journey we got an estimate on when to expect our NOA2: "Based on timeline data, your I129f may be adjudicated between July 3, 2009 and July 20, 2009*."
This may go faster or slower, mostly depending on luck I guess.
So maybe if you guys just keep your fingers crossed, it might go faster.
Which would be nice, since I would like to use these for what they are meant to be, our wedding rings.
