Centralizing AWA case petitions.

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

So they are centralizing the adjudication of the AWA case petitions in Vermont. And those petitions handled by Service Centers will be transferred to Vermont. Was curious how come District Offices were excluded? My petition was adjudicated in the District Office and got denied. I filed the appeal to the BIA. All we got was a notice of receipt of the EOIR from USCIS. No information whether our appeal was forwarded to BIA. Thats why I posed the question..how come District Offices were excluded from transferring the AWA case petition to Vermont?

Here is the link to the http://www.uscis.gov/USCIS/Laws/Memoranda/2011/April/supp-guidance-adam-walsh-actpdf.pdf

And for those with pending appeals to the BIA....here's the latest meeting of AILA and the BIA which you might be interested to know...i have the feeling that my petition is still with the District Office cause in this link BIA mentioned that some appeals are not transferred to them and if there were " The Board issues a

filing receipt to the parties so that the parties are aware that the matter is now at the Board

and is ready for adjudication. Any forms or supplemental filings should be sent to the

Board as soon as possible. " Section X-A of this link...http://www.justice.gov/eoir/statspub/eoiraila040611.pdf

DO you mean that your petition was transfered from CSC to your state's office? That is what happened to our petition: we got the receipt of transfer back in March 2009.

Why did they transfer it there?

And what is the destiny for the petitions n District Offices: to sit there forever?

I'm sorry to hear that you are denied! And thank you for posting that material: any news are helpful.

My I-129F was denied under AWA after waiting close to 2 yrs. I filed an appeal (form I-290B) on March 3, 2011. So far I have not heard anything. It lists on the USCIS website that my I-290B is a NOTICE OF APPEAL TO THE COMMISSIONER. I sent it to the Vermont Service Center and then it is supposed to be sent to the AAO (Administrive Appeals Officer). Does anyone have any experience with this? How long does it take an appeal to be processed?
