A: The current USCIS processing time to adjudicate I-130 Immediate Relative Petition is 10-12 months, depending upon the Service Center who has the jurisdiction over your case. Note that in some cases adjudication gets delayed beyond these processing times because of multiple reasons such as background check, criminal history, unlawful presence etc. You should contact the USCIS at 800 number. Good Luck!
