new I-130 Application help needed

Timeline

My wife is a British Citizen but has US residency and I am British Citizen and I want to become a US resident. I know we can send an I-130 form off but I wondered if someone could give me a brief idea of what will happen after that and some idea of time scales. What other forms will I need to fill out and what documentation/proof will be needed?

I have been reading this forum and it has been a great help but process still seems a bit of a mine field and I want to make sure that I havent missed anything

To give you a little back ground. We got married just over three years ago and she still has a US house, US bank account, US driving licence etc and residency renewal is currently being processed. I have enough assets in the UK to meet the sponsorship financial criteria. But the bulk of these will be transferred to the US before or when I move.

Any help would be greatly appreciated

Hi,

We all have been through this kind of questions and wondering before starting the family based immigration process. Whilst the process may look straightforward if you read the guidelines from USCIS or Department of State, it might be a unique experience for every applicant depending on personal or country specific circumstances. However there is one thing that is very important in this process is the Time factor. Te sooner you start the better it is. So my thoughts to you is to ask your wife to immediately file a I-130 petition with USCIS. this is pretty simple and require little documents. The day USCIS confirms the reception of your petition this will be the D-Day that will determine when a visa is available to you after your petition is transfered from USCIS to NVC for further processing.

USCIS process;

- Wife to file a I130 petition available for download from USCIS website

- A copy of your wife green card (recto and verso)

- Proof of relationship typically a marriage certificate (original one)

- A birth certificate (yours)

- A 420$ heck or Money order favor Department of Homeland Security

- Depending on where your wife lives she will either file with Vermont service center or California service center.

File this as soon as possible!!!
