You'll need to take a look at the visa bulletin first. The NVC won't process your case until there is a visa number available. Right now the NVC is processing F3 cases that were filed June 2, 2002. So you have a while before they get to your matter.
you can monitor the priority dates on the department of state's web cite, just google visa bulletin. it is updated on monthly basis

I agree with my colleagues - check the Visa Bulletin for updated information.
