which case # starting with MSC is the Missouri Service Center also known as the National Benefits Center

 

They send application there, that in the end will require an interview at your local field office

My brother filed for I-130 ( receipt date of Aug 30th, 2018) he has been married to a US citizen for 9 years. His receipt number starts with MSC, and i was cusrious as to which service center is that. Online it shows MSC is Missouri service center, but i did not know that Missouri service center processes I-130's. I thought it was only Nebraska, Potomac, Texas, California and Vermont.

He is already living in the USA, on a H-1 visa. and he has filed for i-485 concurrent filing.

So he filed for Adjustment of Status would be my guess, this will require an interview at the local field office, so I believe this is normal

our case started in Nebraska and was transfered to Missouri (he was not in US)

did the USC get called into the local field office for an interview?

 

when the spouse is in USA, and they are adjusting status they all get sent to NBC for adjudication. 

 

Pretty much anything that requires a interview at the local office goes to NBC for review and or adjudication.

 

sometimes they are sent there in error, a friend of mine had Nebraska send her case to NBC because they thought she was trying to adopt her husband.

in uscis website I could not find the processing times for NBC, or Missouri service center. Are there any posts in this forum whihc i could read to get a better idea ?

The I-130 + I-485 will likely be adjudicated together after the interview.

The I-765 and I-131 are taking around 4-6 months on average. Sometimes longer.

Correct.  Interviews like this are taking around a year.
