hello my name is Robert. My mother who is a permanent resident, filled the I-130 in january, the case status says it got recieved on january 13, 2015, so this means the 5 months period has ended 4 days ago, but on my case status nothing changed. Does anyone know what periods they are processing now?

How old are you?

Since your mom is a LPR, you're looking into either another 1-2 yrs (if you are under 21 yrs old) for F2A visa category or another 7-8 years (if over 21 yrs old) for F2B before you can immigrate to the US. In either case, you need to remain single until you have visa in hand and have entered the US.

I'm 28. Such a long period? I see people here going through the process in much shorter time period

For spouses and unmarried children below 21 years old of Permanent Residents/Green Card Holders, the process is faster, more or less 2 years under the F2A category.

For unmarried sons/daughters 21 years old and above of PR/GC holders, the process is longer because adult children are not considered to be immediate kins. Wait time is 7-11 years under the F2B category depending on the country.

F2A and F2B categories both have visa quota limitations hence the long waiting times. Applicants in these categories have to wait for their priority date to become current in order to be queued for an embassy interview.

On the other hand, immediate relatives (parents, spouses and unmarried children below 21) of US citizens get priority because visas are readily available for them. Processing time only takes more or less a year.

For Romania, the waiting time is 7 years so you won't be immigrating anytime soon.


Marriage will also void the F2B petition. You have to remain single/unmarried the entire time.

Good luck!
