To any K-3 VSC filers transferred to CSC...

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

To the best of my knowledge, I and Garu are the only K-3 filers who have been transferred from VSC to CSC. In both our cases, only the I-130 was transferred; the I-129F remained at VSC. I'm posting this for the benefit of Garu and any other K-3 filers who were transferred to CSC.

I recently moved and submitted an online change of address request for both my I-130 and I-129F. I've now received a letter from CSC confirming that they've changed my address on my I-130. However, I also received a letter from VSC that said the following:

"We have received your request for information on your Petition for Alien Fiance (Form I-129F); however, your Petition for Alien Relative (Form I-130) for the same beneficiary is still pending. Therefore, it is no longer necessary for you to pursue the Petition for Alien Fiance (Form I-129F) and it has been closed."

So I'm now officially on the CR-1 path, and I suspect any other K-3 transferees will be as well. I'm actually kind of happy, given how much the NVC process has been sped up with the online shortcuts.

Wow. this is amazing. thanks for posting the update. Their response makes no sense! Of course the 130 would be pending! As it is on all cases that have both the 130 and 129 submitted. The level of incompetence this people demonstrate continues to amaze me. Actually, maybe they are brilliant. Perhaps it is alot more difficult to try so hard to screw things up than to just do it right the first time.

Personally, I would have preferred (and was hoping) they kept both petitions open so at least there were two chances of getting approved versus one. I don't know if it is good or bad news what they told you. I am just extremely dissapointed and disheartened that my transferred petition hasn't been touched since 08/21. So right now I'm mad at everything and everyone. Well, except nice people like you who post valuable information here.
