Five months is not a long time. The current processing time for most I -130 filings exceed 5 months. Furthermore, consular processing (obtaining a green card through embassy or consulate action outside the US) also tends to take longer than if you are in the US and adjusting status.
I suggest you meet with a local immigration attorney and provide a copy of the documents you filed along with any communication from USCIS. If the filing is inadequate or otherwise faulty, it is easier to correct the filing before a decision is rendered than to appeal after a decision.
