hi everybody here .

In June 13, 2011 my petition I-130 for my husband was received in the CA office. We got a letter stating this and the processing time would be about 5 months. December 2, 2011 I called the USCIS service center because it was outside of the 5 months processing time and we have not heard anything. From there a service request was placed to the CA office tofind out what is going on with my paper work. December 9, 2011 I did receive a request for evidence letter. I pulled all evidence together and mailed it on December 15, 2011. I received a letter on December 19, 2011 2011 stating that they have received my evidence and to allow 60 days and there would be an answer. On February 17, 2012 I called the USCIS service Center because once again I have not heard anything from this office and it is now outside of the 60 days. So now another service request is being placed to this CA office to find out what is going on with my paper work and I need to allow 15 days to hear a responce. So as of today February 24, 2012 I have not heard anything from the CA office.

I understand that there is a lot of papers being processed and that there is a procedure in going through all of the paper work. I would hate for anyone to just be allowed into the United States. But I am getting very upset from being away from my husband. We want to start our lives together here . I am not understanding why during these processing times that no one is looking at our papers. And why we have to keep putting in a service request only to find out they need something from us. They could have told us that during the processing time.

To me that is just prolonging the whole petition. As of right now we are going into 10 months of sending our original paperwork. We got married May 20, 2011 and I was soo hoping to have him here before that so we can at least celebrate our one year together.

so pls if some had a the same experience and can help that will be good , and thanks for everybody .

Put it this way. I never heard that a I-130 takes less than 6 months. I have a friend that got married in Aug./10 and as of today his wife has not come. He is looking forward around May this year if he is lucky. But usually take about 13-15 months. So good Luck!

Contact your congressman.

Maybe the person looking at your file is on medical leave

maybe they lost the papers

Maybe they just need someone to pick it up and dust it off so they can finish it

Find out who the congressman is for your zip code and email them and fax them a consent to inquire on your case

Good Luck

thank you and thank for the advices .

You should have contacted your cognressman by now instead of just waiting for however long they tell you to wait. You responded to an RFE in december so it has been plenty of time. Keep making inquiries. I have witnessed that contacting your representative helps a lot in these situations.
