Recently, in response to repeated discussions with stakeholders including the American Immigration Lawyers Association regarding serious delays in processing I-130; Immigrant Petitions for Alien Relatives, the United States Citizenship & Immigration Service stated that USCIS is focused on addressing the delays and believes it will again reach a five month average by May of 2014.
