Thread: I-130 Approval in little over a month!

  1. #1
    Hi all,

    Just a quick note to all - I am a USC who filed for my husband (VT Service Center) in mid-august. I just got confirmation today that his application was approved! Was that fast, or was that fast? Holy c r a p!

    Just hang in there all! Stranger things have happened, you know?

    Thats immediate relative... they have the priority over any other relatives.

    Mo,

    I know, but still that's awful quick. I know lots of people who are still waiting for approval in the same IR category, and they filed months ago. Guess I got lucky.

    I beleive it. I've seen the same story on a couple of other websites. USCIS has really been kickin *** on the I130 immediate relatives!! Mine was sent from Nebraska to California and should be done in a couple of weeks!! My receipt date is August 16th!!

    Unfortunately the rest of my husbands process will be out of Juarez as he entered w/o inspection 8 years ago and now we will have to be separated for 3-6 months.

    Good luck to you!!

    Hey Angie
    I just wanted to know why your I130 was sent to California, is there a backlog in Nebraska? is it generally slower to get processed in Nebraska or what?

    Angie,

    Just hang in there. Just remember, waiting 3-6 months is a mere drop in the bucket when compared to 8 years of living without... Hope all works well for you and soon.

    tkalush,

    I sent in my I130 in August and got an RFE like two weeks later and sent it back. I noticed when I sent it back it was going to California instead of Nebraska where I originally sent it. Looking at my receipt notice from 08/16/04 it came from the California center.

    I never got any notice saying "your case has been transferred" but from what I understand other centers are helping Nebraska out.

    When I look at processing times for I130/spouse in Nebraska they are about a year out and California is doing them in 5-6 weeks so I guess I lucked out in that aspect.

    One thing I don't know though is do I go by the receipt date of August 16, 2004 or the date they received my RFE which is September 16th?

    Anyone know?

    Yes, I know even a 6 month separation is nothing compared to the separations that some endure.

    Thanks for your support!!

    Angie
