Should I wait for I-824 processing or start over?

I filed I-130 for my wife, then filed I-129F, both got approved but then I withdrawn I-129F and filed I-824 form to let USCIS send my approved I-130 to US Consulate in Pakistan. I have received confirmation and receipt no.

I wanted to know how much time does I-824 takes to process, All USCIS has to do is send the approved I-130, but it seems like it takes forever, Should I just wait for it or just re-apply all over again and not file I-129F so USCIS just process I-130?

I filed form I-824 in March.

Thanks for any input on this,

Romio

I think you should wait. The latest reported timeline for I-824 is two months.

If you want an immigrant visa, don't file an I-129F for spouse.

I would wait too. We did the same thing because our attorney filed for both the I-129F & the I-130 and we were

told we would have a choice on which petition to persue. After we learned so much more we wanted to go with the

I-130. We were approved in 2 months but that is with an expidited request approved.

I think if you start all over it will take you much longer than just waiting on the I-824 to be approved.

Thanks for the information, I am satisfied now and will wait for I-824.
