The I-130 petition is only part of the process for you to become a lawful permanent resident. The date you filed your I-130 establishes your place in the wait list (aka priority date). The I-130 petition does not involve review of your petitioner's financial resources. That will come later as part of your adjustment of status. You will be eligible for adjustment of status, once your spouse becomes a US citizen or once your priority date becomes current provided you maintain lawful nonimmigrant status until then. The current wait list for Family 2A preference (spouses of lawful permanent residents) is approximately 4.5 years as published in the monthly State Department Visa Bulletin.
