I received this email first on 2-2-06:

Receipt Number: MSC*******

Application Type: I485 , Application to Register Permanent Residence or to Adjust Status

Current Status:

On February 2, 2006, we transferred your I485 Application to Register Permanent Residence or to Adjust Status to an office in CALIFORNIA SERVICE CENTER for processing. Our office in CALIFORNIA SERVICE CENTER will send you a written decision as soon as processing is complete. You should receive a notice informing you that your case has been transferred to a local office. Please call the National Customer Service Center at (800) 375-5283 to receive information about local office processing times.

Then I received this email on 2-8-06:

Receipt Number: MSC**********

Application Type: I485 , Application to Register Permanent Residence or to Adjust Status

Current Status:

On February 7, 2006, your I485 Application to Register Permanent Residence or to Adjust Status was received here for processing. It is taking between 270 and 300 days for us to process this kind of case. We will mail you a decision as soon as processing is complete.

A good friend of mine here on the forums says I'm done and no interview. I believe him but I just want to make sure I'm not missing something...any advice? Tks!

I think the answer is that most people who are transferred to CSC do NOT have an interview and their petitions are approved without.

Congratulations!! :)

You have a good chance of being approved without an interview. If they decide later that they really will require an interview, they will transfer it back to your local office.

Based on the primary District Office initial analysis, they believe that they can approve your case without an interview. Therefore, they transferred your case to the California Service center for final analysis. If the CSC believes that you submitted enough proof in your original submissions, then you'll be adjudicated without an interview. If they believe that an interview is warranted, they will xfr the case back to the district office, at which time you'll receive an interview notice.

Note: This process was introduced to reduce the burdon on district offices that are very far behind in processing applications, therefore, you're far more likely to get something like this if your DO is Atlanta, Newark, NYC, etc., and you initially arrived via a K visa or sponsoring a parent.

This could be good news for you. Claudeth got one of these and two weeks later had her green card without an interview. CSC has been issuing a lot of GCs without interviews. Good luck!

Not sure if this is indeed how this works, but perhaps CSC gets to see the K1 file as well, not just the AOS. K1 file would indeed include "proof."

Approvals without an interview have been pretty much for those adjusting from K1 status, no other type of adjustment.

From what it looks like you're one of the lucky ones. Well sort of, some people who have been transferred to CSC get speedy approvals without interviews, while other have waited longer because of rfe's, lost paperwork, and the like. But because you're probably a k visa holder, you'll get processed sooner. Please check out this thread,

http://www.visajourney.com/forums/index.ph...owtopic=387&hl=

People usually get transferred because uscis felt your case was probably a low-risk case due to having sufficient proof (and of course no one knows exactly what is sufficient proof - subjective). Good Luck!
