I wonder if this applies only to military persons, or civillians as well? It seems that indeed, DCF is coming back, at least for the military, so very good news to those it affects, and congratulations! For the rest of us, I don't know. I wish they would let us off the hook already and tell us what their plans are :wacko:

This may be good news for those who deal with consulates that were very strict about residency requirements before they would accept an I-130, it may be less good for those who deal with consulates that would accept an I-130 from visitors.

This item indicates that while DCF may be back, DCP is not. Processing will be done by the appropriate USCIS office (as determined by the USCIS), not by the consulate.
