    Default I-130 Processing time

    Hello Everyone,

    I am a US Citizen and I have filed I-130 petition for my wife, who is currently living in India. I am trying to understand the timeline for this entire process. Let me tell describe how far I have gotten into this processing.

    1/17/2013, Thursday: I-130 Application sent to USCIS (Chicago)
    1/18/2013, Friday: I-130 Application received by USCIS
    1/23/2013, Wednesday: E-mail notification of file acceptance from USCIS with a receipt number
    1/26/2013, Saturday: I-797 Notify of Action Letter, acceptance notice with a receipt number. It also included all my information(DOB, name, address), and my wife's name and country of birth. All information were correct.

    Now that my case has been accepted and routed to USCIS National Benefits Center for processing, Will I get another Notify of Action letter? How long will this take? What will be the approximate timeline before I hear another update from USCIS?

    Thank you,
    Manthan

    I am currently in the same boat as you are.Filled i130(California) for wife who is in india in Nov and waiting for an approval. I have been tracking many cases and see that the average time for 130 is about 80 days.

    You will not hear back from them until any RFE or approval. Please have email notification or mobile notification added to USCIS, so that you will know right away if anything is happening with your case.

    One of my family member got approval, who had filled i130(California) in OCT. It took about 82 days. Now the case is moved to NVC for further processing.
    once your case is around 70 days, please ask your wife to get her police clearance and not from police station but from passport services online. Also try to gather all required documents like original Marriage certificate, Birth Certificate. You will have to send copies to NVC.

    Get familiar with DS260 and Affidavit of support forms. Get your Tax transcript from IRS and have these documents ready so that you don't have to wait.

    Hope you get it soon. Please can you add your case to http://www.immihelp.com/tracker/ as well.

    Thanks,
    Zodiak

    I am not sure how long they will take, but it wont hurt if you hire a good lawyer and have them send out a fax to consulate. get a letter from Congress man or a senator of your state. If you do not act they will delay your case. keep pushing.

    No. You need a visa to stay in the US legally.

    Folks, I signed up in this forum just to help you all understand what you're going through. I went through the process and the administrative processing. You need to know that Administrative Processing = background check. It could take years, folks. It took me 3 years.
