Is being transferred to the CSC a good thing?

11 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

We just got a case notice saying we were transferred to the California Service Center. Is this a good thing? Is there hope afterall that we will receive our EAD and AP sometime soon? Does that get transferred also? Will it be an even longer wait to receive them now that some of our file is in transit?

We made an infopass appointment for Monday--should we still go or is it pointless with this recent news?

Is there someplace else I could find some information on CSC transfers? I hate to bug everyone if these questions have already been answered someplace. Forgive me if that's the case. :whistle:

I would say the Infor Pass appointment is now not needed for a while though your EAD application is getting a bit stale...

Is a transfer to CSC a good thing? Could be... One thing it does is increases your chance of approval without interview...

The infopass appointment was mainly for the EAD... this whole not working thing is killing us financially.

Go for your infopass anyway..you're passed the 90 day point..they'll make sure you get your EAD. I just had an infopass a week and 1/2 ago..they were very helpful!

The EAD and the AP do not get transferred to California - I know this from personal experience:-), so keep your appointment and try to shake loose that EAD. They are generally handled as separate applications on their own.

Generally, being transferred to California means your green card will probably be approved without an interview so, yes, it is considered a good thing.

Good luck at your INFOPASS.

id rather have an interview if it meant a faster approval..

Actually, it often means a faster approval not to have the interview.
