What the heck does this touch/message mean???

13 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My file was touched today, and the status changed to:

Application Type: I129F, PETITION FOR FIANCE(E)

Current Status:

On October 4, 2006, we transferred your I129F PETITION FOR FIANCE(E) to an office in CALIFORNIA SERVICE CENTER for processing. Our office in CALIFORNIA SERVICE CENTER will send you a written decision as soon as processing is complete. You should receive a notice informing you that your case has been transferred to a local office.

I have never heard of this before - I really hope that they don't think it's a K1 application... I thought all K-3's were processed at Missouri?

I am not feeling good about this!!

thanks for that - but has anyone seen this before? I've never heard of it.

It just means your petition is going to be processed through the California Service Center. It is totally normal so don't worry- it's good news that your petition is on the move.

Where did you send your petition to?

I think that I-129F's are only being processed in California and Vermont now so if you sent it somewhere else it's normal to have it sent to California. This has happened to many many people and it is very normal.

Okay, sorry to keep posting to my own thread, but I feel slightly better now, I just received a letter in the mail regarding the transfer. It states that this was done in order to speed up processing - and it was issued by the Missouri office, so I feel like it was in the right place and they aren't transferring it b/c they think it was in the wrong place. Okay, I'll just try to keep breathing :)

That's odd. Yours is the first K-3 I-129f I've ever heard of being transferred!

fFingers crossed for speedy processing!

This information is totally strange to me because, it is the K-1, I-130 that got transferred sometime ago, on another hand the missouri office has been so slow for the past two month. Maybe they have more requests than they could actually process. To be on the safe side i will give them a call. My own petition has been with them since june 19 with final decision yet to be made, others have been there since march.

well, they appear to be on the ball today - I just received my first ever email from the USCIS with the updated status that showed up today :) At least something is working.

Make that FIVE emails - ridiculous! I've heard of this happening before. Oh well, at least it keeps me occupied.
