 Hi Guys! 

 

Im new here, but Iv'e been reading some of you guys posts and responses and I'm eager to join in on the knowledge for a piece of mind if not at least. My husband and I are currently are in the phase between our NOA1 for the I-130 Visa from April of this year and waiting on an approval. This month would be going on 7 months and based upon the status update, no change as of yet. Some comforting words would help... can anyone guesstimate the remainder of time before we should hear back?

I think you will find more helpful information in this forum: https://www.visajourney.com/forums/forum/110-ir-1-cr-1-spouse-visa-process-amp-procedures/

 

The I-130 is for the IR-1/CR-1 Spouse Visa not for the K-1 Fiancé(e) Visa.

Does anyone know long does it take for a case to be issued RFE or approval once Imigration officer starts working on the case?

Once they are done you will receive an RFE or approval.  Every petition is different.

For us it was 2 weeks from being notified (via case inquiry) that someone was working on it to being approved, but there are so many variables that can change that.
