Would it make a difference in terms of how fast she can get here in the States (shes currently 2 months preggy, would love for her togive birth here) if I go ahead and file a petition now and thenjust upgrade later when i get my citizenship, or just wait for my citizenship to be approved??? Thanks in advanced!

It will take about 5 months for your I-130 to be adjudicated. It will take about 4 months for you to become a US citizen. So I guess you can save a few months if you file now and then update the petition once you have become a US citizen.


There is no room in this country for hyphenated Americanism. When I refer to hyphenated Americans, I do not refer to naturalized Americans. Some of the very best Americans I have ever known were naturalized Americans, Americans born abroad. But a hyphenated American is not an American at all . . . . The one absolutely certain way of bringing this nation to ruin, of preventing all possibility of its continuing to be a nation at all, would be to permit it to become a tangle of squabbling nationalities, an intricate knot of German-Americans, Irish-Americans, English-Americans, French-Americans, Scandinavian-Americans or Italian-Americans, each preserving its separate nationality, each at heart feeling more sympathy with Europeans of that nationality, than with the other citizens of the American Republic . . . . There is no such thing as a hyphenated American who is a good American. The only man who is a good American is the man who is an American and nothing else.

File now and upgrade as soon as you can.

It is quite unlikely she'll get her visa and be able to travel before the birth though, the process usually takes 8-12 months for citizens, depending on your service center and embassy.

File ASAP. The I-130 step, as you may know, is identical between GC holder and USC.

It should take about 4 months to get the USC certificate to upgrade your case.

It should take about 5 months to get your I-130 approved (if you file to CA center)

So, it saves you about 4 months if you file now.


You are getting a good one! LOL dancin5hr.gif
