Hello,

I decided to open this topic because I find myself really confused about different opinion of users on the forums.

I read that since 27th March 2015, petition will be sent to CSC.

So, my question is, it is all the petition started from that day or do you have to be lucky to end up in that center?

If I am gonna send my petition by the end of this month, is it gonna go to CSC or TSC?

Thank you so much in advance!!


I am the beneficiary.

Well, we just recieve our NoA1 and it was routed to the CSC!

So, they are still sending all the new petitions to CSC, but we dont know how long they will keep doing this.

Good luck! I hope yours goes to CSC! =)

No one could tell you for sure for sure that you'd wind up at CSC because USCIS can (and does) change things without announcement. But as of now (since March 27) 100% of new filers get sent to CSC as the result of TSC filers lobbying hard for them to even out processing times. Zero luck about it. It's standard operating procedure and has been for months.

When and if they start sending petitions to TSC again is anyone's guess. But if they do, there won't be that giant backlog (because they'll have spent from March 27 through then working through it, and not taking any new files ).

Just for future reference for any newbie who asks this question and/or panics if sent to TSC..... it's unlikely that any time in the near future we see the type of imbalance in processing times or the severity of backlog.

The problem wasn't TSC itself. It was how they were routing the petitions (based on the state the petitioner lived in rather than by how long the line was problem which office had more staff). Those days are over. Again because of months of relentless effort by many folks here.


Marriage/ AOS Timeline:

23 Dec 2015: Legal marriage

23 Jan 2016: Wedding!

23 Jan 2016: "Blizzard of the Century", wedding canceled/rescheduled (thank goodness we were legally married first or we'd have had a big problem!) :sleepy:

24 Jan 2016: Small "civil ceremony" with friends and family who were snowed in with us. December was a bit of a secret and people had traveled internationally and knew we *had* to get married that weekend, and our December legal marriage was nothing but signing a piece of paper at our priest's kitchen table, without any sort of vows etc so this was actually a very special (if not legally significant) day. (L)

16 Apr 2016: Filed for AOS and EAD/AP (We delayed a bit-- no big rush, enjoying the USCIS break)

23 Apr 2016: Wedding! Finally! :luv:

27 Apr 2016: Electronic NOA1 for all 3 :dancing:
29 Apr 2016: NOA1 Hardcopy for all 3
29 Jul 2016: Online service request for late EAD (Day 104)
29 Jul 2016: EAD/AP Approved ~3 hours after online service request
04 Aug 2016: RFE for Green Card (requested medicals/ vaccination record. They already have it). :ranting:
05 Aug 2016: EAD/AP Combo Card arrived! (Day 111)
08 Aug 2016: Congressional constituent request to get guidance on the RFE. Hoping they see they have the form and approve!

K-1 Visa Timeline:

PLEASE NOTE. This timeline was during the period of time when TSC was working on I-129fs and had a huge backlog. The average processing time was 210+ days. This is in no way predictive of your own timeline if you filed during or after April 2015, unless CSC develops a backlog. A backlog is anything above the 5-month goal time listed on USCIS's site

14 Feb 2015: Mailed I-129f to Dallas Lockbox. (L) (Most expensive Valentine's card I've ever sent!)

17 Feb 2015: NOA1 "Received Date"
19 Feb 2015: NOA1 Notice Date
08 Aug 2015: NOA2 email! :luv: (173 days from NOA1)

17 Aug 2015: Sent to NVC

?? Aug 2015: Arrived at NVC

25 Aug 2015: NVC Case # Assigned

31 Aug 2015: Left NVC for Consulate in San Jose

09 Sep 2015: Consulate received :dancing: (32 days from NOA2)

11 Sep 2015: Packet 3 emailed from embassy to me, the petitioner (34 days from NOA2).

18 Sep 2015: Medicals complete

21 Sep 2015: Packet 3 complete, my boss puts a temporary moratorium on all time off due to work emergency :clock:

02 Oct 2015: Work emergency clears up, interview scheduled (soonest available was 5 business days away--Columbus Day was in there)

13 Oct 2015: Interview

13 Oct 2015: VISA APPROVED :thumbs: (236 days from NOA1)

19 Oct 2015: Visa-in-hand

24 Oct 2015: POE !

15 Dec 2015: Fiance's mother's B-2 visa interview: APPROVED! So happy she will be at the wedding! :thumbs:
