F2a upgrade- what do you think

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello all, I am new on the forum and want to hear from experienced minds.

Hubby filed my i130 as LPR with PD 04/06/12 but just became USC on 06/07/13. He called VSC same day to upgrade and got the response pasted below. I would like to know if this particular sentence "Your case is now being processed" means that they are presently on my case and hopefully, should hear something soon. Has anyone got a similar mail and what's the status update:

U.S. Department of Homeland Security




U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services

Dear ...:

On 06/07/2013 you, or the designated representative shown below, contacted us about your case. Some of the key information given to us at that time was the following:

Caller indicated they are:

-- Applicant or Petitioner

Attorney Name:

-- Information not available

Case type:

-- I130

Filing date:

-- 04/06/2012

Receipt #:

-- ...

Referral ID:


Beneficiary (if you filed for someone else):

-- ...

Your USCIS Account Number (A-number):


Type of service requested:

-- Upgrade I-130

The status of this service request is:

Recently, you or your representative contacted USCIS concerning your Form I-130, Petition for Alien Relative, to notify us that you have naturalized and are requesting an upgrade in the status of your petition. Below is a summary of what we found and how the issue has been or may be resolved.

What Our Records Show

We have updated your relative petition to reflect that you are now a U.S. citizen. As a result, your petition has moved to a new visa category for an immediate relative of a U.S. citizen. This category does not have numerical restrictions, and a visa is immediately available from the U.S. Department of State.

Your case is now being processed.

We hope this information is helpful to you.

What this means is, now that it us updated sure to his us citizenship u will not need to wait for a visa to become available. They will process your case either approve or deny. If approved u will be scheduled an interview. If it goes well and approved u will have a visa issued. LPR petitioners have to wait for a visa to become available, where as us citizenship petitioners don't. Your process should hi allot quicker and another now.

I quite understand the aspect of visa availability as USC. I only wanted to know if the line "Your case is now being processed" actually means they are already on my case or they will be attending to it soon as is expected of USC petition as against LPR.

Initial Review

On June 21, 2013, 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.

During this step, USCIS initiates the background checks of the applicant/petitioner and identifies issues that may need to be addressed either during an interview or by asking the applicant/petitioner to submit additional information or documentation. USCIS reviews the applicant's/petitioner's criminal history, determines if there are national security concerns that need to
