Hello everyone,

I'm April 2016 I-751 CSC waiver filer. I checked both divorce and extreme cruelty boxes. I recently learnt that my file was transferred to VSC even though I'm a CSC filer. I didn't move and I didn't live in the East Coast before.


Now that my file is in VSC. Will it follow the regular I-751 timeline in VSC which takes 12-14 months?


It will follow VAWA's timeline which I believe is March 28th 2016 as of September 30th?

It's been over eight months since I filed my petition. I called the USCIS number and talked to a Tier 2 officer. I was told that my file is now in VSC and I need to mail my inquiry to VSC. I tried to find an answer to my question but couldn't find any. I appreciate if anyone had experience or if anyone knows and can share your insights. You can also PM me. Any input is greatly appreciated!

Thank you!!!

Never dealt with VAWA, but we have had a file go from the VSC to CSC, so reverse of yours. We were told follow the processing times of the original service center and that the transfer was only to balance workloads. You should have gotten or will get a paper notice soon that states why it was transferred.....if it says workload balance/not due to your case, follow the original CSC times. You may want to find out why you got transferred if you don't get that notice.

I noticed the estimated time didn't start for us til we transferred. VSC said 4.5mo.....well, we waited 4mo due to backlog before a transfer to CSC, then almost 4.5mo exactly after that, approved. I hope I've made sense!
