I submitted the form I-130 ?

Asked almost 2 years ago - Hayward, CA

I submitted the form I-130 on January 29,2013. On February 1,2013 they send me a text and email saying my application has been accepted. on February 4,2013 I received a letter with my case number and now I checked my case number online and is on initial review now. Do you know like how long that takes. And I'm going to apply for a I-601 A after I get approved with my I-130

    Answered . Well, if you are the person who plans to apply for an I-601A, then I suppose that some other person, perhaps your spouse, has filed the I-130 Petition for you ...

    Generally, if the relationship is "immediate relative," most I-130 Petitions are decided in 4-6 months. There is no guarantee, however, of the length of time that USCIS will take on a particular case.
