I have filed for my wife and daughter to immigrate to the US (F2A) from Algeria, I currently hold a green card, I received an email from the NVC stating that they received all the documents and currently awaiting to be scheduled for an interview overseas, that was back in January 2015. It's been four month and I haven't received anything yet. How long does it usually take for the interview to be scheduled?
It depends. Is their priority date current?
Mr. Shusterman's (former INS Trial Attorney, 1976-82) response to your question is general in nature, as not all the facts are known to him. You should retain an attorney experienced in immigration law to review all the facts in your case in order to receive advice specific to your case. Mr. Shusterman's statement above does not create an attorney/client relationship.
Are your family's visa currently available? If not, cases filed in November 2014 are currently being processed. You can estimate when your visas will be available by using this date and comparing it to your priority date.
If your visas are currently available, and you've submitted all required documents, such as affidavit of support, birth certificates, etc. and you've completed ds-260, then your interview should be soon. It depends on the embassy and how many other people are ahead of you.
Four months is not unheard of and is common.
It depends upon the priority dates and how long it actually takes NVC to get to your file. You should check on the priority dates as well as check in with NVC periodically as to the status.
