Service Center Allocation

How we can interpret case number ?

for ex: XYZ1133345555

Also, if anybody have any idea how the cases get forwarded to service centers, on what basis?

For ex: MSC or CSC or any other

Is this based on your location?

How NBC is different from others?

Thank you !!

All AOS packages goes to NBC. They do all the checks and and request for evidence if needed. From there, they forward I-485 to local offices for interviews and to CSC for those adjusting from K-1 visas. Cases sent to CSC doesn't require an interview ( majority of the time) but the wait can be very long. NBC also process EAD and AP applications.

Hope that helps...:)

If somebody from California for instance, that means her case will forwarded to CSC after initial screening at MSC/NBC? :unsure:

Initial processing is done at the NBC (aka MSC) before being handed off to your local office to arrange an interview and make the final adjudication.

Great !

Thanks for your :help: Hypnos & LindaC1990!

And how we can interpret case number ?

for ex: XYZ1133345555

Does it indicate year/Service center or other details?
