Your case has no been decided yet and it will be delayed. Immigration has publicly informed that they have a backlog due to a large number of cases filed after they announced their price increase this summer.

Their announcement says cases will take 12 to 16 months longer.

I had advised you to file the I-129F K-3 non-immigrant visa after the family based petition I-130 as a strategy to shorten the wait for your wife to enter the U.S.

I think the National Visa Center may issue paperwork to begin the immigrant visa process and we may want to look at the strategy again.

I will keep you posted.

There was a recent announcement by USCIS that stated that Naturalization cases file after June 1 will take as long as 18 months. Maybe your lawyer is confusing this with Spouse/Fiance cases. All cases will likely take longer than usual, but the 16-18 month estimate is specifically for Naturalization (citizenship) cases.

As a result, average processing times for certain application types may become longer. In particular, naturalization applications filed after June 1, 2007 may take approximately 16 - 18 months to process.

"12 to 16 months longer" is not correct. Longer, yes, but not that much longer. It's a public announcement you can read for yourself.

That does not seem correct. The trend right now is for the I130 being approved before the K3. Please read my post in myprofile. I just got of the phone with my lawyer. My I130 was approved 2 months ago. Now i am afraid they will cancle my K3.

The policy since November 06 has been to approve both the I-130 and I-129F petitions together and then hold the I-130. Your timeline doesn't indicate you ever filed an I-129F. You don't pay I-864 bills if you want a K3 visa.

Yes, well when you file the two petitions so far apart in time, they don't end up together. I think filing the I-129F in your case was a waste but at least only a waste of time. I suppose it's some sort of free insurance you'll never need.

Up until this evening I been running around VJ thinking I was a July Filer. My I130 was approved in September. I was thinking my I129F/K3 should be approved by now or within the next couple of days. Well then I compared the receipt date of my I129F to other peoples receipt date. I have come to the conclusion the my lawyer did not file my I129F petition until Middle of September. I129F receipt date is September 26th. My lawyer has a new assistant now. How can I be sure that the rest of my process will be on time.

The only way you can be sure of anything, is to do it yourself :thumbs:

Your lawyer will work at the speed he works at, as will his assistant. Your priority is your petition, your lawyers priority is every case on his/her books. Most people on here, myself included, don't believe a lawyer is necessary for a straightforward case, some choose to let lawyers do the work for them. Neither way is right, and mistakes can happen either way.
