Transferred to local office today in SF....how long now?

Recommended Posts

I am very thankful to be a Canadian and going through this process. It has been 7 months so far but my husband and I have been able to visit each other frequently. Currently I am visiting in the US for 6 weeks. Last night he received a text and email saying that his petitions for I129F and Cr-I130 were being transferred. We were elated that a person had touched our file. This morning he received another text/email stating that our file has been sent to our local office! Just wondering if anyone knows how long it is taking San Francisco to process either petition or has any information as to how I might find out how long to now expect to wait further. I was getting very depressed and frustrated and now have hope restored! Good luck to us ALL! Thanks for any input!

We filed the same petitions @end of June. Both of them went to the CSC end of Nov, both approved by 12/7. I called the NVC yesterday (12/17) to see if they have our files yet...they do not; told.me sometimes it takes up to 2-3 wks for that to happen. I.also.asked them about the 129f...they verified that it will be closed once they get the files. Information you need to know however...the I-797 /NOA2 they send you for the 129F has your spouses permanent and only Alien Registration # on it the "Beneificiary's Name" box.....that # is not on the 797 for the I130. You'll need that # for the visa application!!

your file was most likely not transferred to SF, but rather to Cali, Texas or Nebraska. The transfers are to other USCIS offices, the "local office" in notification is just a glitch.

you will receive a letter that will say to wait for 60 days, so your approval can be anytime in the 60 day range, but there are some people here who have been waiting longer.

hopefully you get approved soon!
