Should I now file for a 129F since I130 is delayed?

12 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Alright kids I'm fed up with this ridiculous waiting for an I-130. I filed in January this year and to keep things simple I didn't file the I129f. Yeah yeah stupid and lazy on my part. What's the verdict should I file a 129f next week or what? Vermont is killing me! Or should I try a transfer ro CAlifornia? I am so confused and tired of this. We all waited 2 weeks for the update on processing times and I'm sure we all screamed in frustration when nothing changed. All my sympathy to all of you. Jen

That's what i will do next week, we are in the same boat, I filed in May 21 and until now nothing happen, but I'm sure soon you will recieve the NOA2, and I think is up to them to transfer your case to California.

Considering almost 8 mos. have passed, unless by some miraculos chance, I doubt the I-129f will ever be adjudicated before the I-130... however since no added filing fee is attached... what have you really got to lose?

Thanks for the quick answers I guess what I forgot to add is this: What address do I send the change to California request to? Any one know off hand it would help! Thanks for the input! Jen

You cannot... that is strictly something the USCIS decides on a workload basis...

I'd bet you'll be xfered to California before too long. But I don't think filing the I-129F will hurt anything if you don't mind the extra work.

Glad to hear you were transfered. Check out the Transfer list. We're looking at about 15 days to approval once it is *received* by CSC. Give it 3-5 days to be received.
