Will that shorten my wait time or extend it for approval?

Alameda, CA |

I called and spoke with an ISO, my I-130 just got transferred from NBC to San Francisco local field office on 1/10/13. My priority date from my receipt was 11/19/12

I am a US citizen (age 29) and married my wife (age 25) on 10/9/12 in Taishan, Guangdong China.
