Receipt Number: W**********


Your Case Status: Initial Review

On August 15, 2013, we transferred your I130, IMMIGRANT PETITION FOR RELATIVE, FIANCE(E), OR ORPHAN, to your local USCIS Office for further processing. The new office has jurisdiction over your case and will send you a decision as soon as processing is complete or you will be notified if further information or action is needed. If you move, please use our Change of Address online tool to update your case with your new address.

this means they will be able to process it faster to another Local office. This is good since your case has been touched!

From what information we can gather from other VJers, your petition will be sent to the local New York field office for adjudication. The National Benefits Center, where all I-130s are filed nowadays (service centers sent all unprocessed petitions to the NBC) sends most I-130 petitions to the petitioner's local field office for adjudication. They are currently in a transitional phase, so it's unclear when this policy will change (or if it has already changed). Once fully transitioned (presumably in September), USCIS will adjudicate all I-130s in their Overland Park, Kansas facility.

You can get stats on the New York field office here:
