I-129F filed to a wrong service center

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

hi, I am a new member on this board.

My fiancee and I just filed I-129F petition for me.

We are engaged and not married yet.

Today I just noticed we sent the petition to a wrong place. I read the I-129F instruction and we were supposed to file it to Nebraska service center instead of Chicago office.

Well, the strange thing is we still got NOA1 from Chicogo saying the process would take 60-180days.

Does that mean Chicago office will do the work or they will eventually send the package to Nebraska?

Has anyone had the same situation like mine?

I am not sure exactly but my guess is that it will either be returned to you or Chicago will forward it to the correct place. It would be nice if they just sent it on but not sure what the standard protocol is.


YMMV

It might be a good idea to contact the Chicago office and explain it to someone. Chicago would not process your file but as they have issued a NOA1 they might not have realised it has been sent to the wrong office. It's possible it might sit on a shelf awaiting adjudication for quite some time before they pick up the error.

What will generally happen is either:

  • if officer who receives app is in a good mood, the packet will be transferred to correct SC (in this case NSC)
  • otherwise, packet will be RTS'd (return-to-sender) and will need to be resent to correct one

(I've had equivalent experience with plain-jane I-129 when I was on TN-1--in Atlanta; the guy who had to send in visa renewals for my then-employer lazily sent the app to TSC--when ALL TN-1 mail-renewal apps are supposed to go to NSC--in this case, "good-mood" happened and I got the new TN-1 in time).

Koreanboy,

This would be my guess, but it will be interesting to see what happens so please report back when you find out.

The people in Chicago are clerical, they open the submissions, check them for completeness, assemble them into a file, and ship them off to Lees Summit MO for processing. They may or may not examine them close enough to recognize that you petitioned for a fiancee, not a spouse.

Other posters have sent their petitions to Chicago erroneously. You can try and PM them.

I only offer advice - not even legal. Just the plain and simple kind.
