  1. 1. How long did it take for you to be approved after being transferred?

Hi everyone!

I wanted to make a specific thread just for those who were transferred to CSC. I know the good part of being transfered is that chances are you might not have an interview, BUT the bad part is that we are left clueless as to when we will hear from them. Is it a month, maybe more? Who knows. All I know is that they said the average is 4 months total. A part of me feels like those with interview dates are luckier because they know when the end is. But hey, the grass is always greener on the other side, right? So let's be happy!

Well anyway, I wanted everyone here to share their experiences. Doesn't matter when you filed, but please share when you were transferred and how long it took to be approved so that it can help others.

I know that the VJ timeline is there but this just makes it so much easier!

Just an FYI, I was transferred April 26, and I got an RFE May 26th. They received it yesterday so I am back in the game now too!

I can't wait to hear your responses. :)

Goodluck everyone!!!

Our son was born 02/03/2013

I received my masters degree in Speech-Language Pathology 04/17/2013

I received my 10-year greencard (ROC) in 3 months with no interview (March-June 2013)

My naturalization journey took 4 months (April-August 2014)

Same here. Mine was transferred on May 27th. I'd rather the green card take longer than go through a scary interview. As long as my husband gets his EAD soon we don't mind waiting. We just want him to be able to work!

I would say you should be hearing from your EAD/AP soon, and that you might have an interview date coming up too? It hasn't been too long so I wouldn't worry yet :)

Yeah it's only been 2 months. I hear it takes at least 3 to get approval on anything. The EAD and AP should be coming through soon, though. Have you checked your case online or called the 800 number?
