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.

          Nobody can guess the earliest time. If i do say a date and it does not get approved by that date, you will blame me for the wrong date.

          I just gave you the date based on average processing time.

              When i give a tentative month. it means that your result can come on or before that date/month. There is no hard and fast rule to stop your case approval.

    Hello Sir,

    My situation is the following: I submitted the I-130 form for my husband as a permanent resident in June, 2018, I became a citizen in October, 2018, sent in my naturalization, I got a receipt (still in October) from USCIS that they changed my case and he’s moved into the immediate relative of a US citizen. We still didn’t get any other notice, how much longer will it take approximately for the petition to be approved? I live in Washington state.

              Anil Gupta 23 Mar, 19 at 7:44 am

              I do not have data about Citizens filing for spouse at California center because USCIS does not share it.

              I am not sure if there is any way that you can find it online.

    Hola, buenas tardes, tengo una pregunta, mi fecha de prioridad es de septiembre 2017 oficina en california, soy residente aún no me han aprobado la i130 y el boletín de visas ya va en marzo de 2017, mi pregunta es debo tener en cuenta este boletín? Porque siento que el boletín está avanzando mucho y la i130 aún no ha sido aprobada y he escuchado que los 6 pasos después de la aprobación toman 90 días. Este boletín de visas debo tenerlo en cuenta también? Es para la gente que va a recibir su cita o es para ingresar a los 6 pasos, Gracias por aclararme la duda.


    • Anil Gupta
      Anil Gupta 20 Mar, 19 at 5:59 pm

      El boletín de visas aparece en la imagen solo después de que se apruebe su I-130.

      What is your spouse status in US: Green card or US citizen?


      • nini
        nini 20 Mar, 19 at 4:20 pm

        Green Card. And my birth country is France.


        • Anil Gupta
          Anil Gupta 20 Mar, 19 at 4:55 pm

          You can expect your I-130 approval by July 2019 end. This is step 1.

          Once your I-130 is approved, the second step is Green card interview which happens based on visa bulletin dates.
          As per visa bulletin of Mar 2019, USCIS is giving green cards to people whose priority date is 08 JAN 17 or earlier.
          Your priority date is 27 Sep 2017.

              Anil Gupta 20 Mar, 19 at 5:59 pm

              I don’t think October would be possible. It depends on how fast the visa bulletin moves ahead.

    US Citizen applied for i130 spouse visa in NOV 18. She has a travel B1 visa from earlier but is currently unemployed. Can she come visit ? No idea about approval times either.


    • Anil Gupta
      Anil Gupta 19 Mar, 19 at 12:11 pm

      She can travel to US on B1 visa but an entry may be denied as her immigration application is pending.
      B1 visa does not allow immigration intent.


      • matt
        matt 19 Mar, 19 at 12:11 pm

        Oh okay. The Texas center lists processing times as 7-10 months. Is that until the approval is given or is there additional wait time for interview date?


        • Anil Gupta
          Anil Gupta 19 Mar, 19 at 9:12 pm

          The first step is to get I-130 approval and then step 2 is to get Green card interview date. Green card interview can only happen after step 1 has been completed.
