Bringing Stepdaughter to USA

I have a quick question, if you don't mind....

My wife came over on a K1 visa about a little less than 2 years ago (my how time flys!) She is now a holder of a 2 year GC.

About 3 months ago I petitioned for her daughter (age 14 and listed on my wife's K1 petition). We weren't able to file for the 'follow to join' because I changed jobs and moved across the country during that first year my wife was here...so we missed that window. Nonetheless, we've filed for her and yesterday I received a CRIS email stating that the case had been transferred to CSC.

When my wife and I were doing the AOS steps, a transfer to the CSC usually was a good thing. Does anyone know if it is a similar thing for the I-130 which I've filed (I'm the petitioner) for my wife's daughter?

Well...anyways...all is going well and peace and God bless to everyone during Christmas!

My Step Sons I-130 were transfered on 6/11/07 and approved by 7/12/07. Hope this helps you out as far as the time line. WE received the interview in 2/14/08 if this is any indication. Had 1 RFE from NVC and it took us about 1 1/2 months to get the money together for the Ds-230.

Why is it that the only one who can stop the crying is the one who started it in the first place?
