RFE - K1 petition transferred?

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

My fiance filed I-129F for me in January 20, 2015. We submitted all the information to USCIS Texas and got NOA1 by text message on January 29, 2015.

Last week, we received a RFE letter from USCIS California, requesting to submit evidence of us having met in person.

I am just wondering, if that means our petition has been transferred to from TSC to CSC?

Thanks!

TSC and the lockbox are two different things.

The Texas lockbox is the submission point for every I-129F petition. Once it goes to the lockbox it is sorted by state of residency of the petitioner - from there it is assigned to either the California or Texas service center. You were not transferred at all - your petition was assigned by the Texas lockbox to the California Service Center.

If you were to actually be transferred (and considering CSC is processing at 30-60 days while TSC is at 7-8 months it's unlikely) they would send you a specific letter stating your petition was transferred from x Service Center to x Service Center. Please update your timeline to reflect that you were assigned to the California Service Center.

Will do, thanks!

Welcome to the forum.

As Megan & Luke said, don't confuse USCIS Lockbox center and USCIS Service center. :thumbs: Simple way to check, what are the three prefix letters on your NOA1, petition acceptance notice? If it is WAC, then your petition is being processed at the California Service Center.

Good luck on your immigration journey.

You need send copy passport stamp, plane ticket, photos together, all that you have that show that you were together.
