Why was my I-130 sent to Nebraska?

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My husband is from California, sent our package to Arizona which we got the email today saying it was now being sent to Nebraska for review...shouldn't it be sent to California? Looking at time lines California cases are being approved within 6 months total, now we're lucky to have our I-130 approved in 5 months ! :cry: Are they just sent by random? According to the website each center handles specific states...

when I asked where to send my waiver for an expedite they told me to send it to Phoenix. However they ended up sending it is in the Nebraska anyway because apparently they file all waivers through Nebraska. For the I 130 I'm not sure I just know that I got sent to Nebraska even though there is a center here in Texas and I live in Houston.


Waiver mailed January 17th

Waiver received January 18th

Waiver received from Phoenix to Nebraska Center January 27th

Waiver approved February 17th!!!!!!

this is for a 601 waiver no lawyer assistance and the reason for the expedite is because I need two surgeries one is pre cancer related in addition to I am also bipolar with PSTD and panic disorder and severe depression.

Because some office work faster than the other, they're trying to speed up the process so they send the file to other office that way your file won't be sitting on someone desk for months before being review. My got from Chicago to Nebraska then to California because Nebraska was having a major backlog

I definitely feel you. I'm seeing so many people get their NOA2 from California, and while I'm happy for them, I'm heartbroken.

Due to employment opportunities, we stalled our process for a bit.

I guess they mostly handle visas with relatives and not standalone beneficiaries. Only a select few randomly get sent there as stand alone. Scroll all the way to the bottom to see the numbers from each service center...helps make sense of the whole thing, but still sucks! These stats were as of Dec 2014

Thanks for this. It did make a little sense as for the wait time. My husband is constantly complaining at how long it's taking. And I have to remind him we aren't even half way!
