New Theory on CSC Transfers

I could be completely wrong here, but i'm was just mulling why we and others get transferred to CSC and some don't. Has anyone looked at people who file using their married name versus those who file with their maiden name? Perhaps USCIS sees changing your name as reasonable proof that you have a legit marriage?

Changing your name doesn't make the make more valid vs. invalid, and every couple of weeks someone comes by with a new theory on why people are transferred - they're transferred because of office backlogs.

I haven't changed my name yet, so we filed w/ my maiden name. I'm the USC sponsoring my K-1 husband, and we were transferred to CSC....so I don't think that matters.

I wonder if couples that got their I-129F approved at CSC, and later file for AOS and get transfered to CSC, maybe that office has more information available/ easier access to info on that case, and can help speed things up a bit. Which would make sense if they are trying to catch up with the backlog created by the fee increase. :reading:

maybe?

Maybe just various factors related to one's case. For example, my husband and I were together 8 years before we married and I (the USC) lived in the UK for 6 years with him. So perhaps they look at measures such as that to determine the likelihood the marriage is not honest.

I kept my maiden name and my file was transferred to California and I was approved without an interview. When I called and spoke with an Immigration official (was transferred to one by the Help line) I was advised that the transfer was for the processing only to help reduce the backlog at the local office.


“...Isn't it splendid to think of all the things there are to find out about? It just makes me feel glad to be alive--it's such an interesting world. It wouldn't be half so interesting if we knew all about everything, would it? There'd be no scope for imagination then, would there?”

Yeah, but surely they would only advance cases they felt confident would pass in an interview. Especially with the Patriot Act, etc - I would imagine they would rather have us all wait then take a chance.

No it isn't a damn theory. Here's the link to prove it.

http://www.uscis.gov/files/pressrelease/CS...s_121305_ST.pdf

Your marriage isn't any more 'magical' than somebody else's if your case isn't transferred. It isn't because you have been together longer or shorter. It isn't because you make lots of money. It isn't because you sent 'proof' of your deep abiding commitment to each other in the package. It isn't because you are white; because you aren't from the middle east; because you aren't from a high fraud post; we've seen people from all these categories transferred and approved without interview.

It's because of office backlogs. End of story. That is all.
