I'm going to share with you one of the most common questions that I get, especially these days: How long is my case going to take? And the answer is, it depends on what type of case we have filed.

A "normal" application

So, if you are filing a normal marriage-based green card application, I'm telling everyone these days that we're looking at 1-2 years. The time frames from immigration do change. It's like an accordion. It expands and contracts. And so, as we go through the 1-2 years that I’ve mentioned, the client needs to understand that sometimes those processing times can also slow down.

Where to find this information

Now, where do we find this information? If you are at home and you’re working on your own case, you just want to look it up. The easiest way to do that is to go to a search engine like Google and type in "USCIS processing times."

This will take you to a part of the US CIS website where you can select your case type, such as an I140. Then you select the location where your case is handled, such as the Texas service center, and you will be able to understand what the processing time for your case will be.

As always, if you have any questions, please reach out to us and we would be happy to assist you.
