Just submitted Petition

Hi All, I just submitted my petition a couple weeks ago. I've spoken with the Junior Warden who asked me a few questions and told me what I'd need to accompany the petition. I did everything he said I should do. My question is... should contact him, or my friend (who gave me the petition), to ask if they need anything else from me or is it just a waiting process at this time. I want them to know that I'm still very interested.

Congratulations on that first step! Now it's time to play the waiting game. We move slow. Glacially sometimes. lol The typical process after you submit a petition in most areas of the US is that at the next Lodge Meeting, your Petition will be read and they'll assign an investigation committee. That committee will have until the Lodge's next meeting to meet with you for your interview. Then at the meeting after the interview the committee will report their findings. So depending when the Lodge you petitioned meets, and how often, it could be weeks before they even assign the investigation committee. Best advice I can give you now is patience. And feel free to ask any questions here. We're always happy to help a new petitioner! Good luck on your journey and keep us informed of your progress. (and try to avoid spoilers that might ruin the experience)

Update on my petition.
My petition was invalid. One of the brothers who signed it was/is suspended for not paying dues. I've resubmitted everything and looking forward to starting my journey to becoming your brother weeks or months from now. #PatiencePatiencePatience

I am very suspicious. What lodge did you petition? What is its Grand Lodge affiliation?
