The form I-130 confirms the existence of a family connection between the U.S citizen or green card holder and someone seeking a green card. The form is commonly called “the "I-130 petition." Making an I-130 request with the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), one of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS), is the initial step in the green card application process based on family members. Are you not sure if your family is eligible to receive a family-based green card? Check your eligibility.
When applying for the marriage visa, an I-130 petition is submitted to show you are legal (based on an official marital certificate). The second phase is part of the green card procedure where you have to submit evidence (for instance, joint bank statements and joint insurance papers, and photographs) to verify the marriage is "authentic" -- that is, it's not founded on fraud.
The I-130 petition will also secure your position in line to receive an available green card. Unless you're the spouse or parent, or child (under 21 years old) of a U.S. citizen (who gets to skip the line altogether), Your place in the line is determined by your "priority date," which is simply the date when USCIS accepted your I-130 petition. In general, applications are reviewed in the order they were submitted. Look through the Visa Bulletin to learn more about the wait times for particular types of green cards.
