Let bride and bridegroom in the presence of the heavenly universe pledge themselves to love one another as God has ordained they should. {LYL}

Welcome to the site!:D

if you already filed the petition for your wife to USCIS then you do not need any other process about that stage until you get a response from; approval/RFE(refuest for further evidence )/ petitioner interview etc.

The stage you should be looking up now pending USCIS is the NVC stage whichis when the applicant now submits application for Visa . Of course for most people, the petitioner initiates and monitors this stage.

Links for that are found here:

Thanks for the links, will read and try to know how this works

I see you Filled your I-130 and got approved on that Congrats,

I filled mine last month, I-130 , they received it on 23rd April. So today will be exactly one month,

so from now i need to wait for NOA2 right, and that takes normally from 1-6 months, RIGHT?

Also if i get some letter from my Kansas governor will that help. My dad knows him personally.

Let me know if a letter will make the process quick

I will do more resarch today and will ask back if i have more questions

thanks

The USCIS stage takes from 1-8 months... sometimes longer. I wouldn't worry until it's been past 6 months honestly because that is the normal processing time. It generally takes a few months for the I-130 to be sent from the NBC to your local field office.

Yes initial review is there until you get an RFE or a decision on your case.
