How to know which Service Center your case will go to?

Does anyone here know how Service Centers for cases are determined? Are they randomly assigned or are they based on where you live, etc?

 

This is for ROC/i751 obviously.

 

Thank you,

2. My spouse went through K1 (I-129F)  and AOS (I-485) 

3. About to file ROC (I-751) for my spouse

I believe it is suppose to be regional according to state u live in ( i stand corrected if wrong)

but i do know that much depends on case load of each center at the time u submit

Link doesn't work. I tried searching the site myself, but could not find an answer.

Link works fine here (both copy/pasting it and clicking on it).

That said, the content doesn't reflect realistic processing expectations. For instance, it says an I-129F for a K-1/K-2 are handled at all service centers except Vermont. Currently, all I-129Fs are handled by CSC except a very small handful that transfer to Vermont due to extended background/criminal checks.

 

For an I-751 (ROC), I see only CSC and VSC processing them right now. As for which one you get, I don't know if there's a mechanism to determine that (there are 2 separate dropbox locations, which themselves are new for ROC as of last month).

Technically USCIS processes I-751s at CSC, Nebraska, VSC, and TSC according to the latest update posted on their website (https://www.uscis.gov/unassigned/filing-location-change-form-i-751), although I'm not aware of any recent ones going to anything but CSC & VSC.

the link tells u what your service center handles

 I 102 , I 129 finance, I 129 worker,  I 130 alien relative, I 131, I 192, I 212, I 290B, I 360,, I 485, I 539, I 160A, I 612,I 751, I 765, I 765V

 

some VJ'ers go thru years to get thru this process

as there are over 6,000,000 applications a year

and even though we get upset as the waiting is hard,    we know it is meant to protect not only the US but the USC

and our interview in Ecuador was so stressful , i did not write a review

but still can't call what USCIS does corrupt just heartbreaking
