Welcome to Visa Journey

i understand your concern - hearing nothing after 3 months. The USCIS expectation for process the I-130 is 5 months so it is normal that you have not been contacted / case not updated with USCIS. IF 5 months have passed (April 9, 2011) then you should call them to put in a service request to get information about your case. It is NOT a bad sign.

Your Visa class is Immediate (IR) so you are not subjected to the visa cut off dates so once your case is completed by USCIS then a visa is waiting for you. The cases are usually at the NVC for 1-2 months (average). Without delays someone in you visa class can have his/her visa in 8-9 month if the case has no delays at USCIS or under go Administration Processing/AP.


Current cut off date F2A - Nov 08, 2016
