I am on green card, husband on H1b. I130 approved saying, the information submitted with petition shows that the person for whom you are petitioning is not eligible to file an adjustment of status app. at this time.
Answer: It is possible that your spouse needs to wait for his priority date to become current. This link will take to the Visa Bulletin page: http://travel.state.gov/content/visas/english/l... There, you should be able to determine if your priority date is current. You look for the country he is immigrating from, and his classification. If it is current, then you will receive notice from the National Visa Center to pay the processing fee. If it is not current, then you will be able to see when the people who are current had filed their I-130s. In some classifications, for example single children of LPR from Mexico have a priority date in 1993. That means that those children have waited from 1993 until now to take the next step in entering the U.S. I think that this is the likeliest scenario.
