Could it really takes 12 and half months for the I-130 petition to get approved?

Hi everyone :)

Today is exactly 6 months since we're waiting for an approval from the USCIS.

Yesterday my Husband called them to ask about our case and how long it would take them. They told him it takes 12 and half months for right now but it could change every month. but when I go on the wedside and check how long texas USCIS needs to process a case it stays 4 and half to 7 months. So it's really confusing and I really hope we don't have to wait another half year for an approval. It's starts getting really frustating and I wanted to hear from you guys what your experience was with the timeline and how long it really took for you to get approved. Thank you.

Due to pandemic, delays are expected. After a month or so you can submit an ONPT request since your case is filed at TSC. Mine got transferred from TSC to VSC and its been 13 months now with no updates/approval. We can just hope for the best at the moment.

Visa Journey statistics indicated the time at TSC is more like 8-10 months.  Here is a graph showing the VJ numbers for the processing times for all service centers:

Our I130 took about 17 months (California Center). Though it was a F21 category. Not sure if that makes a difference.  I would imagine 12 months is relatively close.

USCIS Approval: 08/09/2019

Welcome Letter: 10/15/2019

Submission to NVC: 02/03/2020

I-864 Rejected (minor error): 03/09/2020

Resubmission: 03/09/2020

DQ'ed: 06/19/2020 (100 days of second time)

Interview: TBA (hopefully soon)

Did you get notified that you were transferred? I hear a lot of people get transferred without being notified.
