Hello,I have a question about me filing for my wife,the i130.and it was accepted 6 of december of 2013,and I've gotten a notice on Jun 9 for request of evidence and I sent everything they asked for, and every time I search with the Lin number they gave me to check my status it always on the same spot which says request for evidence,it hasn't move for 4 months. What I want to now, how much longer is my process is gonna take since its going to be a year in November since I first filed the documents, my spouse lives in Serbia, and I filed from New York for the I130,if there's anyone that could help me with some info who has done this before because when I call USCIS all they keep saying is we don't know and we don't have that information yet,if they don't know then how am I suppose to know.?

Hello. It usually takes about a year from start to finish for this kind of visa, although we've have been waiting 14 months so far. Right now they are under a huge backlog, of course. Calling USCIS or NVC (whichever place you're at) is always helpful. Ask very direct questions. They will not give you more than you ask for. Good luck!


And ask to talk to a superior if you don't get the answers you're looking for!

No problem! Once we get our visa I won't be on here as much but I try to keep stuff updated to help other Serbs out! It's hard to get detailed information about this process in Serbia, especially in English. :) Blessings to you and your marriage!
