I am US citizen, applied immigration visa for my wife. It has been 6 months, i have sent my I-130 and didn't get any response. I got my first NOA with receipt number but there is no updates available online. I always have to call USCIS help line number to get the updates. However, i know some other people whose I-130 get approved in 3 to 4 months and mine is still in pending. I have written a letter to senator and congressman but didnt get enough help.

You would have had none of these problems had you engaged an immigration lawyer from the very beginning. Senator and congressman will do absolutely nothing for you aside from paying some lip service and sending generic inquiry letters Which will not yield any results.
Unfortunately, as others have stated as well in their answers, Congressional inquiries in this type of a case may not help much. From my experiences, in fact, a mandamus action may be the only option available to you, which is a lawsuit in federal court to help expedite their decision, and it definitely helps get a decision faster, albeit without guaranteeing whether that decision will be a positive or a negative one, which depends on what they have already uncovered in their apparent investigation.
