Submitted to Texas...Why Are They Processing in Nebraska?

22 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I'm now irritated, even though I know its beyond my control.

 

I submitted the I-130 for my husband. We live in Finland, and as my research implied, I was to submit the application to Dallas USCIS. That's what I did. So why is it that when I got my NOA, its from the Nebraska Service Center....the center with double the wait time?! 

 

There are no notice of transfers alerts on USCIS that states they are moving some applications to Nebraska. So why is my application being submitted there? Did I do something wrong on the application?

The places you sent your application to is not Service centers but simply Lockboxes that receive the applications and the fee and then they sent the application to the different service centers. 

Thank you for the clarity! 

Do they send it randomly? I'm wondering if there's something wring with my info or is it just bad luck it got assigned to Nebraska.

It is based on some sort of internal distribution policy or maybe it is random 


YMMV

There you have it.  As plausible an explanation as there can be.

Now I'm a little confused. How long will I wait? Because they received it 9/23 (same priority date), sent the notice 9/26.

Does that mean the NVC has it? Or that Nebraska SC is processing it and it will take at least a year and a half?

If you do nothing, it will take about a year (or possibly more) for your I-130 to be processed.

 

Or, search this forum extensively for the I-129F process and cut your processing time down considerably.

This is the first I'm hearing of this. I will research this and see what I can do. Thank you so much!

Actually, the K3 trick is starting to be futile. It worked for a few and that spread like wildfire. Now it is taking the same time as a normal I-130.

NVC?  Hardly.  It was received at the lockbox on 9/23, assigned to Nebraska, then the notice was printed and sent out on 9/26.

The I-129 trick is starting to become so common that it probably won't make much difference, it's worth a try though since Nebraska is taking more than a year to approve I-130 petitions right now unless they get their act together and start hiring more people with all those fees we pay to USCIS!  So hunker down for a long wait, don't stress over it, be grateful that you live together (for now), and start looking into issues of US-based income, financial sponsorship, and establishing a US domicile.  A year from now you'll need to provide evidence that the US citizen spouse is satisfying those requirements, sometimes this means a period of separation with the USC spouse moving to the US before the alien spouse.  Good luck!

Don't overseas cases have to be sent to Chicago lock box? It probably would still end up at Nebraska but I've never heard of I-130s for overseas filers being sent to Lewisville.
