Hello all, I'm from the U.S. and I married my Ghana African Husband on May 20,2011. That was my first time meeting him but we have talked for over a year on the phone, yahoo, and skype. I filed form I-130 today. Can someone tell how long I will be waiting before he's able to come to the states. Will be hard for him to come over since we only met once? Thanks

Ghana? Oh My - is some big problems with Ghana after completing NVC processing - they aren't scheduling Interviews for some time now.


Sometimes my language usage seems confusing - please feel free to 'read it twice', just in case !
Ya know, you can find the answer to your question with the advanced search tool, when using a PC? Ditch the handphone, come back later on a PC, and try again.
