Asked in Immigration Law for Connecticut

Q: Last year Aug 2018 my husband did i 130 form, which was approved in april 2019 this year.

My husband is a u.s citizen. I came to the u.s in may on my b2 visa given 6 mnths which expires in November. I decided to stay and we decided to do adjustment of status which was sent to Chicago IL uscis. I want to know if adjustment of status will increase my green card process time ? will i have to wait approximately a year again to be approved ? or is it shorter seeing that the i130 was already approved?

A: Not enough facts to answer your question. Is your husband a US citizen? If not, Is your husband a green card holder? Different rules apply to your case depending on the answers to these two questions.
