I-130 Processing Times for Immediate Relatives

For immediate relatives (spouse, children and parents) of U.S. citizens, there is an unlimited number of immigrant visas and approval can be obtained in approximately 5 to 9 months. There is a short wait because there is no visa limit for the immediate relative category.

The processing time depends on whether the petitioner is a lawful permanent resident or U.S. Citizen and the relationship between the child and the petitioner (parent or sibling). It could range anywhere between 6 months - 18 months give or take some time.

You are correct. As long as your child meets the definition of a child mentioned above, you can petition for them. You’ll need to include evidence of your family relationship such as birth certificate, adoption records, stepchild relationship and paternity testing. Son or daughter is under age 21 at the time of filing.

As an umarried son of a permanent resident, your son would be second preference, F2B, and as of May, 2014 numbers, they are up to February, 2007. If you became a citizen, your son would be first preference but the line would not be much shorter, March 2007. More. 0 found this answer helpful. found this helpful.

The processing time is typically around 7 years. Once the I-130 petition for your primary beneficiary child or children is approved, they may then apply for an immigrant visa or adjustment of status to come and live in the U.S.

This is a common scenario for a U.S. petitioner who is helping a spouse immigrate to the United States.

The children must be under age 21 and unmarried, both at the time you file the I-130 petition for them and at the time they receive the green card. There are some exceptions that might help children who turn 21 while waiting for a visa or green card—see How the CSPA Helps Family-Based Preference Relatives and Derivative Beneficiaries.

Eventually USCIS will send an approval or a denial of the I-130 petition. This could take a long time, but don't worry—it will not affect the speed of your son or daughter's case. The "priority date" establishing your son or daughter's place on the waiting list for a visa has already been set, as of the date USCIS received the I-130 petition.

The category of immediate relatives embraces spouses, parents and unmarried children under 21 of US citizens. The approval of an immigration petition on behalf of an immediate relative generally takes about six months. The whole process of bringing an immediate relative to the US usually might take about a year.
