USCIS received my case October 09, 2012. they sent me my receipt in the mail. I am still waiting on the approval of my case. Do you have any ideal how much longer till I get approved.
The short answer is, the length of time cannot be determined. The longer answer is, depending on whether the petitioner is a US Citizen or Permanent Resident, and depending on whether the petitioner is filing for his/her spouse, parent, adult married son/daughter, adult unmarried daughter, unmarried child under age 21, or sibling, the length of time for a USCIS decision could be as short as 2 months, or as long as years. But USCIS might also have reasons for the delay, such as background checks, investigations, etc.
