  1. Appeals from the denial of your I-130 petition to the Board of Immigration Appeals may take a couple of years. It is your responsibility to call the Board every few months to find out the status of your appeal. Update any change of address so the decision comes to your current address. Keep a record of all calls and status correspondence in case the Board sends the decision to your old address. Another option is to re-file your relative petition if your wife has no statutory bars (such as previous marriage fraud).
