Hello everyone,

 

I been waiting about 120+ days for my k1 visa approval. So I ended up calling them to see what was the status. Mind you, I live in California and I sent my application for processing to the Texas address (Not sure if I should have done that) however, about 3 days after I called them I got this email (attached) and was wondering does it portray bad news. Thanks.

The I-129F Petition is mailed to the USCIS Dallas Lockbox facility regardless of where you reside.

 

It is then sent to the California Service Center, where most I-129Fs are processed. However, some I-129Fs get transferred to the Vermont Service Center (from the California Service Center). This is usually for cases where a more thorough background check is needed, i.e. petitioner has a criminal record, etc.

Moving from the Dallas/Lewisville lockbox to the California service center isn't a transfer.

 

The Texas Service Center hasn't handled K-1s in years.

If it didn't go to Vermont then I suspect it is just down the street from you. Everyone goes to California to processed. At this time it looks like yours is no different.

99% of I-129F petitions are adjudicated at the California Service Center.  Generally, the few cases that go to Vermont have more complicated issues (criminal background) to investigate.....

Read the comments. Sheesh. This was the first one and it answers your question before you even asked

Not unique but not the usual way. The cases that are transferred to Vermont are mostly ones that require an intense background/FBI check. Does the petitioner have a criminal record?

I think this our answer as to why the case is in Vermont. 3 DUIs and “some” misdemeanors. I assume your fiancé knows the full details (not just your version of events) of each of your arrests? She will be asked about them at interview, assuming you get that far.
