Today, my AOS I-485 application was transferred back to the National Benefits Center and the status changed to Initial Review. This happened after 9 months that it was at the CSC. What does this mean? The only thing that I can think it means is that we will be getting an interview appointment? Any thoughts? Or any similiar experiences?

Thanks.

Wow, that is a long time you are having to wait. :(

Ours was transferred to CSC and then got transferred back to NBC. We were then scheduled with an interview. We hadn't been waiting anywhere near as long as you though.

Perhaps you will get an interview letter soon, and it will finally get done for you guys.

You can always call or make an info pass appointment to inquire about what is going on with your case and why it is taking so long.

I see that you got RFE for bona-fide mariage so I'm pretty sure that's why it got transferred back. Looks like they want to do an interview to make sure that your marriage is real before issuing a GC.
