Q: I130 for a spouse visa

The last update is from 7th April 2019.

A: You should do the I-693 for the medical exam on your own. You should have an interview at some point but you have not provided much information.

A: The FORM I-130 has been accepted for processing by USCIS and you will be issued an approval, a request for additional (RFE), or a denial at the time USCIS adjudicates the petition.

If and when USCIS approves the petition, the case will be routed to the National Visa Center ( NVC) for additional processing before forwarding the case matter to the U.S. consulate. The processing time will be impacted by various factors including the amount of time that you and your spouse react to requests by USCIS and the NVC.

An experienced immigration attorney can assist you in handling your case before all of the government agencies to avoid any delays.

Good luck to you.
