Upgrading spouse F2 petition after becoming US Citizen.

Asked 8 months ago - New York, NY

In September 2013 filed I-485 and I-130 for spouse based on F2 quota becoming current. I just became US citizen, spouse's I-130 status show initial review. I-485 shows testing and scheduling (EAC rec'd). What are the next steps for us? Any complications/processing time extended that we should worry about once we file for upgrade?

Additional information

Wife is in the US. Arrived legally.
