Hi, Kim.

Look up at the blue area on the top of this page, and find "Processing Times" and "Immigration Timelines". Also see the blue tab above these that reads "Guides". You will find a lot of helpful information here, and you can ask additional questions once you have absorbed this basic material.

I can tell you that if you started your process in September this year, your husband will not be with you by January 1st. The first stage of the process alone will likely take you at least 90 days (though we have seen some make it through in about 60 lately), and there's a few months' wait after that to get through the next phase before the visa interview.

Sorry to break the bad news, but meanwhile you can learn everything you can about the process here and make yourself better prepared to navigate the journey to come.

My husband is from York, by the way, and I am in South Carolina. Welcome, and good luck to you.

Take a look at my timeline, but yours will be faster as California are processing faster now!!...so if you take about 3 months off my I-130 processing time that should give you a rough idea :thumbs:
