I130 for stepdaughter taking too long, cannot find information

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Last year I filed an I130 for my stepdaughter. The I130 was received July 27, 2018 (also the priority date) and the Notice Date was July 31, 2018. The notice came from the Potomac Service Center.

In January 2019 I received a notice saying that "in order to speed up processing, we transferred the application ..." to the National Benefits Center.


I can't find anything on the National Benefits Center processing times / case inquiry date on the USCIS website. I only see the options: California, Nebraska, Potomac, Texas, Vermont.


When I look at the Visajourney processing times, I130s from Aug 1, 2018 at the National Benefits Center are already being processed.


Any help would be much appreciated. Is is worth calling the National Benefits Center tomorrow to see what's up? Or is there something super obvious I'm missing. Thanks!

when it was Missouri our case was tranferred there to speed the process as we had been over 10 months at Nebraska


so things should happen now within a few months
