Hi everyone,
I wanted to know what USCIS meant on their website if anyone knows what 5 months means when you look at California Service Center timeframe for I-130 brother sister of US Citizen. My brother in law's I130 was filed in October of 2010. The website says 5 months, what does the 5 months refer to if anyone knows?

Usually they put in a date, last month when I checked it said February 10, 2010. I found that kind of odd. If someone can please help me, thank you.

That is the time for the petition to be processed. Then a priority date is issued. That priority date is used to determine when a visa would be available and the interview will be scheduled. Check the visa bulletin to see the current priority date.

For siblings of US citizens the wait is approx. 11+ years for most countries.

Priority date is the one from your NOA 1, when they first receive the petition. For sibling's I-130 expect close to two years before you receive a notice the petition has been approved.

The wait for a visa to be available is approximately 9 more years.

The petition processing time is how long it takes for the petition to be approved (or denied). Then the wait for the visa begins.
