AR-11 Change of address while I-751 case pending. Case sent to a different service center

Hello everyone,

We sent the I-751 (Removal of conditions) form back in December 2014 to the Vermont Service Center.

In June we moved from New York to Florida, we sent the AR-11 form and the I-865 (change of address forms). We only received a confirmation notice for the I-865 (sponsor's change of address) and nothing for the AR-11.

USCIS said that the new address corresponds to the California Service Center, and so they had to transfer the file from Vermont to California and this might delay the process.

It's now been 8 months since we sent the I-751 and two months since we sent the AR-11.

Does anyone know how the change of address affects the processing time?

How much longer will we have to wait because our case was sent to a different service center?

Thank you all

I am not sure if they actually transfer it. Has anything else you've gotten shown that they've transferred the file?

I actually don't know for sure if it was transferred. When I called customer service, they said they can't tell if the file was transferred or not but that's usually the procedure (apparent customer service knows as much as we do!!)

So I'm really in the dark here. I have no idea what happens after one sends a change of address and the service center is a different one.

Do you know if it will be transferred?

I just did change of address online (california to New Jersey), and the case was processed just fine.

Biometrics done in early July in california. Changed of address done online on 7/24th. New card being produced on 7/29th according to the USCIS website status check. (I am still waiting for the actual card though)

The approval letter was sent from NJ office. So my case was transfered from California to NJ.

Have you talked to any of the tier 2 officers at USCIS?
