As of March 25, 2021, the I-130 Petition For Alien Relative processing times for petitions filed through the USCIS in the US by US citizens, for their benefit of their spouse, are as follows:

Service Center Processing Time
California Service Center 19.5 Months – 25.5 Months
Nebraska Service Center 2 Months – 7 Months
Potomac Service Center 12.5 Months – 16.5 Months
Texas Service Center 9 Months – 12 Months
Vermont Service Center 28 Months – 36 Months

Although processing times vary, it is noteworthy that, in recent months, Davies Legal Immigration have seen petitions processed in as little as 1-2 months. Where an I-130 petition has been approved in as little as 1-2 months, the processing time for the entirety of the Immigrant Visa (Spouse) application process may be as little as 6-8 months.

At Davies Legal Immigration, we are pleased that processing times appear to have decreased in recent months. We hope this trend will continue.
