On February 2013, I filed an I-601 Waiver for my father's U.S. residency. It has been 5 months and my family has not received any information whether his I-601 waiver has been approved (or rejected). I was told the process takes 4-6 months, should I wait another month? What are the next steps I need to take?
If you are pursuing an I-601A provisional waiver, then give it more time. If you are pursuing an I-601 waiver then the answer depends on the country in which your father resides. Based on what you wrote, hardship to you does not directly qualify for a hardship waiver for your father. There must be hardship to the foreigner's spouse or parent. You are the son. Generally, it should help to consult privately with a licensed U.S. immigration attorney on any case involving hardship waivers.
