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.

    My husband filed the I 130 on the 20 of july 2018,he is a green card holder, and my case is at the california center, how long will take for the I 130 to be approved?

    • Anil Gupta   19 Mar, 19 at 8:03 am

      You can expect your I-130 approval by May 2020 end.

      • Billy Bilonda   19 Mar, 19 at 11:46 am

        Thank you. After the approval how long the whole process will take for me to be with him in the US?


        • After I-130 approval, the National visa center will call you for green card processing if your country of birth priority date is current.

          What is your country of birth?

  2. Coolboyshane   19 Mar, 19 at 12:37 am

    Hello,

    I know that you’re an expert in immigration-related questions. I would really appreciate if you could help me to file for I 130. The new law is pretty scary and time-consuming process. The USCIS officer has the sole discretion to deny an application without RFE, So I want to make sure the application is filled correctly and provide all the required relevant documents. Kindly advise me what is the best way to file. My wife who is a US citizen is planning to file for i130 from New York. We got married in January and it was arranged by parents. Since I don’t live in the US, I need to apply for CR1 visa from my home country. Please advise what are the documents required to file along with the i130 application. I have the marriage certificate, passport size photos, My wife’s naturalization. Regarding the bona fide requirement, Can I submit wedding and honeymoon photos, Chat history for the past 3 months, and maybe affidavit letter from our families? Kindly advise me based on your experience.

    Hola tengo una pregunta mi esposo es residente pero me metió la aplicación en diciembre 18 2017 no save cuanto tiempo estará aprobada …

  4. Jonathan Gomez   13 Mar, 19 at 8:59 am

    Hola, no entiendo, porque el día de ayer me mostraba el mejor caso de aprobación en septiembre 25 y hoy se regresó a julio 25 que pasó allí?

    • Jonathan Gomez   13 Mar, 19 at 8:59 am

      En california service center estaba ayer en septiembre y se regreso a julio, que está pasando.

      • Anil Gupta   13 Mar, 19 at 9:13 am

        We corrected the dates on the records shared by users that were wrongly entered after verification of cases from USCIS website.

        This can happen if users enter wrong receipt dates to say that their case was approved.

        • Jonathan Gomez   13 Mar, 19 at 9:21 am

          Te entiendo, pero es que en la página oficial de USCIS estaba en marzo 11 y se regresó a enero, como van a poner ellos casos aprobados de marzo y luego se regresan a enero.

          • Anil Gupta   13 Mar, 19 at 9:21 am

            USCIS cambia la fecha todos los meses y la mueve hacia atrás. No sé cómo lo hacen.

            • Jonathan Gomez   13 Mar, 19 at 9:21 am

              Pero porque… es desesperante cuando ya uno se siente cerca la retrasan, ósea que los de marzo fueron datos incorrectos? Mejor voy a llamar a USCIS A QUEJARME estoy muy molesto.

            • Anil Gupta   13 Mar, 19 at 9:01 pm

              Los datos de USCIS no están equivocados. No hay nada que puedas hacer al respecto excepto esperar.

      • Anil Gupta   13 Mar, 19 at 9:21 am

        Corrigimos las fechas en los registros compartidos por los usuarios que ingresaron incorrectamente después de verificar los casos en el sitio web de USCIS.

        Esto puede suceder si los usuarios ingresan fechas de recepción incorrectas para decir que su caso fue aprobado.


  5. Why this rais RS is of January..it was March 3 ? Why 1 month delays


    • I don’t understand your question.

      • Trang Olive   12 Mar, 19 at 11:20 pm

        He meant it was shown the processing time for form I-130 to get aprroved on March 1 2017 but today it showed Jan 25 2017. How can it be?


        • Thank you ..that is what I want to say

        • Anil Gupta   13 Mar, 19 at 9:13 am

          Which service center is it? Assuming you are talking about “Raise SR” date moving back, this “Raise SR” is the date that USCIS officially publishes.
          USCIS moves it back every month as per their wish and the time that they think they will allow for people to create a “Service request”.

  6. eduardo arias   11 Mar, 19 at 8:33 pm

    • Anil Gupta   11 Mar, 19 at 2:45 pm

      You have not mentioned your date of filing I-130.
      Anyways, it is currently taking 9 months at Nebraska to get approval for I-130 filed by US citizen for their spouse.
