Hi, I have not been on the site for a while since my husband was approved. My husband has another year before he can apply to be a citizen. We have 2 children here in the US. My husband left Mexico 12 years ago when had a son that was 6 months old at the time and did not meet him again until 1 1/2 years ago when he went back for his waiver appointment. I got to meet him this past February when we went to visit. It was a wonderful time and he was very excited to meet his fathers family. His son wants to come live with us now and his mother is very nice and willing to let her son come to stay with his dad in the US. I have started the process this week with Janis Peterson-Lord to petition my step son. Just curious what the experience has been here on the site and the time frame we can expect. I have already started the first step I-130. The lawyer said maybe 4-6 months for the next step. Can anyone give me a rough idea of what is to come next and how long? The lawyer seems to think this should be a smooth case. My step son has never been to the US. I am hoping he can make it by August for school.
