Greetings,

I'm newly married and preparing to file my I-130. I've got a lot of questions and a lot of research to do first. I already see a lot of things on this site I need to read. Probably like most at this stage, I want to make sure I don't screw anything up; I want to figure out how long it's likely to take; and I want to see what I can do to speed things up, if anything. Cheers! And thanks to whoever started this site and everyone who contributes.

I think a general time frame is particulary 7 to 8 months in general, but that depends on a multitutde of factors in which I am giving you the general timestamp.

In regards to an expedite, that is pretty much a thing that is a rarity and I don't forsee it happening unless you have some circumstance that presents dire need. I have seen couples that have the wife pregnant and still no expedite.

I would recommend going into this with patience and lots of love. Keep in contact daily and imagine and plan all the things you can do rather than get depressed. Good luck!!! Study the guides here and everything should go flawlessly!!!!

God bless.
