I'm in the process of getting my Green Card. We filed the I-130 back in April and this is all we have heard so far dated April 25, 2014:
"Your case has been accepted and routed to the USCIS Nebraska Service Center for processing. Within 7-10 days by standard mail you will receive your official Receipt Notice (Form I-797) with your Receipt Number LINxxxxxxxxxx. With the official Receipt Notice (Form I-797) you may visit www.uscis.gov where you can check the status of your case using My Case Status. We suggest you wait until you have received your Form I-797 before checking My Case Status.
This confirmation provides notification of the date USCIS received your case. This notice does NOT grant any immigration status or benefit. You MAY NOT present this notice as evidence that you have been granted any immigration status or benefit. Further, this notice does NOT constitute evidence that your case remains pending with USCIS. The current status of your case must be verified with USCIS.
PLEASE DO NOT REPLY TO THIS MESSAGE"
A few days after that we received the I-797.
From what we could gather the next thing we would hear would be in about 5 months, however I've been reading on here a lot lately and it seems that that is not the case. I'm pretty sure that we should have heard something else by now.
We were married on Jan 12,2014 and decided to take a 3 month honeymoon in Israel, (where we met) while we were waiting out the 5 months. We are presently in Israel. We have people checking for mail to us regularly back home and signed up for electronic notifications.
What do I need to do? We've been checking out case status and it says "Initial Review"
Thanks for any help you can offer.
