I have filed I-824 (follow-to-join) for my husband and it has been pending for almost 9 months. Recently, the I-824 processing time has increased (6.5-19 months) in Texas Center, while I-130 processing time is 1.5-7 months in the same center. I just wonder if I can file I-130 while my I-824 is pending?
Thank you in advance!
Yes, one can file an I-130 when an I-824 is pending.
