I-130 Sponsor Family for a Green Card

U.S. citizens can sponsor following family members using Form I-130:

  • Natural parents, step-parents and adoptive parents
  • Unmarried sons and daughters under the age of 21
  • Husbands and wives
  • Brothers and sisters, adopted siblings, step-siblings and half siblings
  • Married children or children over the age of 21

Family Green Processing time – Regular Application

How long does it take for I130 to get approved for spouse is based on current processing time mentioned above at the USCIS service center.

Family Green card form i 130 processing times are updated daily for 2018 using the official USCIS processing times and data shared by real applicants in various forums and trackers online.

Raise USCIS Case Service Request – Outside Normal Processing Time

If your ‘case received date’ is before the date (worst case) mentioned above, you should raise a service request with USCIS to check why your case has been delayed. This could mean your case is taking longer than other similar cases and may be stuck in administrative processing.

Next step after I-130 is filed?

A Green card priority date (receipt date) is assigned by National Visa Center (NVC) on USCIS-approved i-130. 

A wait list is created with priority date cut-off and USCIS announces current cut-off dates in monthly Visa Bulletin.

i485 Green Card Adjustment of Status Processing Time

Family member is inside the U.S.

If your family member is inside the U.S. at the time their priority date becomes current, they need to file Form I-485 Green Card application to change their status to permanent resident (green card).

Family member is Outside the U.S.

If your family member is outside of the U.S. at the time of priority date getting current, the NVC will send your petition and their visa number to the family members’ local U.S. consulate or embassy, which will contact the family member to come in and complete visa processing.

  1. Minnie Mouse   20 Feb, 19 at 9:30 pm

    US citizen filed I130 for brother & sister, receipt date August 24, 2018, service center CA. When will this be approved.


    • It is currently taking about 9 years for getting approval for I130 for brother and sister.


  2. When will they give visa call for January 2017 filars As the visa bulletin has moved till 8 Jan 2017

    • Anil Gupta   20 Feb, 19 at 2:54 pm

      I don’t think I can answer anything based on the extremely limited information you have given in your question.

  3. Swndirect Swndirect   20 Feb, 19 at 11:10 am

    I filed the I 130 for my wife and son in August 2017 in California Center and still waiting for approval. My wife and son are outside the US and I became a US citizen in November 2018 and our case was updated in December 2018. Does this mean our case is going to be moved to a different Center? How long will it take for our case to be approved as it’s now passed the approval date?

    • Anil Gupta   20 Feb, 19 at 2:53 pm

      When you upgraded your I130 application with your US citizen status, did you receive any letter informing you about your case’s new service center?

      • Swndirect Swndirect   20 Feb, 19 at 3:42 pm

        We did not get any letter regarding the new service center and our case is still in California. Do we need to call or request for the case to be moved to a different center.

        • Anil Gupta   20 Feb, 19 at 3:43 pm

          Your case should have been upgraded and moved to a different service center as per my opinion. You can call USCIS and ask for details.

  4. MAHENDRA K KHANNA   20 Feb, 19 at 7:47 am

    I filed the I 130 for my brothers and sister in October 2012 in California Center application starts with WAC. But I have not heard yet regarding those applications. When I can get approval letter.

    • Anil Gupta   20 Feb, 19 at 8:59 am

      What is your own status in US? Green card or US citizen?
      How old are your brother and sister and what is their marital status?
      Which country do your brother and sister belong to?

      All this information is needed to give you a good answer.

      • MAHENDRA K KHANNA   20 Feb, 19 at 9:10 am

        US Citizen. 51, 48, 45 and all are married. India

        • Anil Gupta   20 Feb, 19 at 2:53 pm

          At this time, it is taking almost 9.5 years to get approval for US citizen filing for brother or sister’s green card. You can expect your I130 approval by July 2022.

  5. Fathima Mohammed Reeza   19 Feb, 19 at 8:53 pm

    I live in NYC, and I am going to file the form I-130 for my spouse, which Service Center am I related to If am mailing the petition from NYC? And what’s the processing time is like if I am a green card holder?
    I have applied for my Citizen too, if I apply for my spouse’s visa now as a green card holder, I heard my Spouse’s Application will also change category and the time frame will also change.
    So for example, let’s say I apply for my Spouse’s petition this month, February and im still a green card holder but on June, 2019 I become a Citizen and his application will change category by that time. What his visa processing time frame is going to be like by that time, will he have to wait 1 year from june? or will Feb-Jun will be count towards the time frame and it will approve around 2020 Feb?


    • Your I130 application might go to Vermont.

      Once you become citizen, you can upgrade your I130 application and then your processing time will reduce.

      • Fathima Mohammed Reeza   20 Feb, 19 at 12:50 am

        You mean I-130 right? not I-139
        Okay Great Thank You for your information.
        So according to this given Processing Time, It will take around 6 months for my I-130 to get approved right in Vermont Service Center?
        Do you by any chance have an estimate on the processing time of the whole visa case approval?

        • Anil Gupta   20 Feb, 19 at 6:44 am

          Ya..its I-130. Typing mistake.
          Once your I-130 is approved, the next step i.e. Green card processing time depends on your own status i.e. you are green card holder or Citizen.
          For US citizen’s spouse, the green card is issued within 1-3 months and for Green card holder, it can take much more time.


  6. My receipt date for i 130 is June 15 2018 from Nebrasia . After that i didn’t hear anything?How long i have to wait? this waiting make me sick. everyday I check mail box. Thank you for your help.

    • Anil Gupta   19 Feb, 19 at 7:47 pm

      Who has filed for your I-130 and what is the status of that person in US i.e. Green card or US citizen?


      • My Attorney filled my i-130.. And Im a USA citizen.

        • Anil Gupta   19 Feb, 19 at 7:58 pm

          You are US citizen and who have you sponsored in I-130 application?


          • Yes I did sponsored. My wife is aboard. She never been to USA. She is from Nepal. i got receipt date and receipt numbers thats all. Date of receipt is June 15 2018. Its is LIN number which i believe it is from Nebrasa, last updated on case was 01/29/2018.. i don’t know what does that mean as well..

            • Anil Gupta   19 Feb, 19 at 8:04 pm

              Your I-130 application will take about 9 months to get approval. You can expect approval by Oct 2019 end.


            • I applied on June 2018 and my priority date is june 15. still i have to wait upto 9 months? On June 15, 2018, we received your Form I-130, Petition for Alien Relative, Receipt Number* LIN******************************. please give me hope.

  7. I just filed for my wife today the i130 got mail today . I’m filing from Maryland so ive 2 question . which center will it go to between the 5? And my other question is, it’s been 1year and 8momths since we are married so by the time she should get here will probably be over 2yrs so will she get the 10yr or 2yr green card

    • Anil Gupta   19 Feb, 19 at 8:13 am

      The center is decided by USCIS and you will know once you receive your USCIS receipt number.
      What is your US status? Green card holder or US citizen? The processing time varies by Service center and your own US status.


      • Im a born citizen and i was told that 2-3 weeks I will get some type of receipt saying they receive my wife file.. Born in Maryland and live all my life. So ive to wait that 3week before I learn about the center? Someone told me Maryland files goes to California center

        • Anil Gupta   19 Feb, 19 at 8:51 am

          USCIS sends the receipt number within 7-21 days. So, yes, you should wait for your receipt number before we can talk about next step.
