I-751 Case without filing N-400 transferred to Lee's Summit, so an interview can be scheduled

24 posts in this topic

Posted (edited)

After waiting almost 15 months since I-751 was filed (jointly), I got a notice saying basically my case has been transferred to Lee's Summit, Missouri, an interview will be scheduled.  I didn't even file N-400, didn't receive any RFE either.  Has anyone here experienced this? Thanks

I understand, but it goes straight to interview without even issuing a RFE and a pending N-400?  

Yes. N-400 is only if you have applied for it and you can get an interview without getting an RFE. Not all get approved without interview.

Do you believe your case has any potential red flag that draws USCIS attention?

maybe 9+ year age difference, same sex couple?  But the AOS interview went pretty smoothly, which is why I'm confused and of course stressed now.

The cases that usually get interviewed (not always) are:

 

1. Divorce within two years before filing I-751

 

2. Sponsoring spouse obtained green card and/or US citizenship through marriage of another US citizen within 5 years of the current marriage (this is a second marriage)

 

3. A spouse is of nationalities designated as high-risk e.g. countries on the travel ban list.

 

4. Significant discrepancies are found among various sources of information

It may be. Age difference can draw attention, but not always.  Do you believe your evidence submitted is solid?

 submitted everything joint-----bank accounts, credit cards, cable bills, gas/electricity bills, lease renewal, investment account with spouse as the beneficiary.   But then, if there's not enough evidence, they should've issued a RFE first instead of going straight to interview stage? And why was the case not transferred to my NYC local office if interview is next?

Yes, that is an interesting question.  RFE, by the manual, is the first step prior to interview being scheduled.

 

I know of another person whose case also has also been transferred to NBC with the same message a few months ago.  Let me ask him and see if he has any update, if he does I will share with you.

Business as usual...it doesn't mean anything is wrong. Some people get an ROC waiver and others don't. Sometimes they issue an RFE and sometimes they don't.
