hi

no, for the interview, the priority date has to be current, the process takes between a year and a half to two years

 

no one can tell how the visa bulletin will go, it can advance, be stuck for several months or regress

hi

 

not for spousal visas, they are more or less the same, depending on the service center, the 130 can be approved sooner or later

 

but the wait until the interview is still between a year and a half to 2 years

Numerous application of F2A comes from India, Mexico, Philippines and China. You can see in visa bulletin a different bucket for processed priority dates because of the number of application. A number of visa is allocated for each year. If those get used before your priority date, then you'll have to wait. All of the countries right now are on the same wait timeline.

 

I'm F2A too and been waiting for an interview for 1 year and 5 months.

Yep, lawyer lied to you. Current F2a estimate is 1.5 to 2 years for interview.

Yea being from Algeria honestly or other MENA countries generally would add onto the time of processing for background/security checks.

Unless, you encounter some special and uncommon issues throughout the application, for example recent visa bans, criminal record, complicating your case, then you would need a lawyer. Otherwise, with decent research and some readings, you can get through the majority of immigration processes by yourself. Visajourney is a great and reliable resource outlining each step ahead of you.

Yes, the OP can actually process all without a lawyer.

Logically, of all the category, F2A is LIKELY not to regress and may never in this lifetime take more than 5 years as long as the law remains the same

This is because in 3 or 5 years, a LPR becomes eligible to become a USC and pull his family out of the queue.
