Case Transfer - USC and petitioner abroad

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

Today while checking the online status of my petition I found the following update:

On September 18, 2012, we transferred this I130 IMMIGRANT PETITION FOR RELATIVE, FIANCE(E), OR ORPHAN to another office for processing because they now have jurisdiction over the case. We sent you a notice of this transfer. Please follow any instructions on this notice. You will be notified by mail when a decision is made, or if the office needs something from you. If you move while this case is pending, please use our Change of Address online tool to update your case with your new address or call our customer service center at 1-800-375-5283.

Now, I have read on other threads that this usually means an interview for the USC. Since we are both, me and my wife, currently living abroad and do not intend to move to the US until her visa is approved, what could this mean? How could they arrange the interview for me?

Case Background: I-130, for IR-1 filed on 9/04/2012, NOA1 date 9/10/2012, sent to CSC.

Thank you!!

There have been a lot of cases transferred lately. My guess is that they are trying to relieve the service centers with the influx of petitions by putting them elsewhere.

It would be useful, I think, if those people would band together and compare notes. I wonder what effect this would have on your auto-expedite queue for petitioner living abroad.

I will keep my timeline updated in order to keep track of "auto-expedite" issue. I think our case has a couple of potentially delaying factors (naturalized usc, previous successful spousal petition a few years ago) so we'll see what happens.

Thanks!
