Hi everyone - I'm new to the forum but finding it so helpful to get an idea of timelines. I lodged my application on September 5th and have completed my medical and local police background checks. Still waiting for the FBI one to come back, but they charged my credit card a few weeks ago, so hopefully not too much longer. We had only seen the very misleading information on immi's page that said it would take 5-7 months when we first applied and were very disappointed to find out the real time they are quoting from DC is 12-15!
Luckily my Australian husband and I are both together in the US now, but had been hoping to move early next year - that's looking unrealistic at this point, but here's to hoping it's closer to 7-8 months that other people have been seeing recently! Good luck to all.
