I just filed my I-130. Do all Cases right now get sent to Nebraska?

I sent my petition from abroad to the Chicago lockbox. I just got a notification from my bank today that they cashed my check. I assume I'll get a notification soon about which center it will be sent to, but it seems like everybody is just sent to Nebraska right now. Is that true? My home address in the USA is in New York if that matters. Just curious. 

 

thanks!

If you look at the back of the check at the endorsement you just might find the case number 


YMMV

Yes, since your check has been cashed, you should be notified shortly and I think you'll be getting a receipt number, not a case #.

Receipt number and case number are the same.

That stopped years ago.  Checks aren't deposited like they used to be, so no endorsement either.  Maybe ten years ago that would work.

It is my understanding that at the USCIS stage they provide you with a receipt # and once your paperwork goes to NVC they then give you a case #.

USCIS provides you with a USCIS case number which is the same as the receipt number.  Pataytoe, patawtoe.

 

NVC is Dept. of State.  They provide a Dept. of State Case number.  Pataytoe, apple..

Well if we are sorting potatoes.    USCIS has a RECEIPT number (as noted on the I-797), not a case file number.   Once a NVC they will get a case file number for the specific embassy and affix it to the file.

Where your petition gets sent to will be decided by the lockbox. Not everyone gets sent to Nebraska, and your US address being in New York holds no bearing on where it will be sent either. The lockbox will assign it to a service center on their own criteria, whatever that is, but it's certainly not geographic


Our CR1 Journey So Far:
 

USCIS Stage:

  • Feb 8 2019: Sent package
  • Feb 14 2019: Delivered
  • Feb 21 2019: NOA1 (PD Feb 14, 2019)
  • Assigned to Nebraska Service Center (yay... 🙄)
  • Waiting for: NOA2

It is not "incorrect" to refer to the USCIS "receipt number" as a "case number".  It's important for  people to know they will have a USCIS number AND a Dept. of State case number.  I can assure you that USCIS personnel work on cases, and those cases have identifying numbers, that match what they refer to as a receipt number on their own notices of action.

 As I stated earlier  ... fact is USCIS issues a RECEIPT number, read any I-797*.   Not even a point of discussion.

 

And with all these spuds we should make french fries.  ;)  

 

As shown in this image off the internet (no personal info here .. mods).
