Immigration Issues/Processing time for H4

Question
Hello Sir,

I applied for my Wife H4 on Jan 15th 2008. I would like to know how much time it takes to get the approval. As per USCIS website the processing date is June 17th 2007. I wanted to know how much time it takes as we are planning to apply for F1 -Change of status once we receive approval.

Please let me know
Thanks

Answer
Chandra,
It usually takes about six months to gain approval.  The processing date you saw is correct.  Incidentally, you do not need to wait until approval to switch to F1 as you can showing the H4 receipt is good enough.
