I-130 Transferred to Field Office while spouse applied abroad

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Is it strange for an I-130 to be transferred to a local field office when my spouse applied abroad? My lawyer has said it isn't out of the ordinary, but I can't find any other examples of this. The I-130 was transferred from the Texas Service Center to the NBC then to the Boston Field Office.

It’s completely normal for USCIS to transfer cases around to other USCIS centers to maintain time estimates and provide more efficient service across the board. It won’t effect your “spot in line”.

The OP stated that the I-130 went to a field office....not another service center.......that seems odd to me.

Ah. I assumed it was transferred to a Center. Maybe this has something to do with the removal of international field offices, maybe now they’ll transfer workloads to local offices? Strange stuff. 
 

definitely worth an inquiry with USCIS.

That doesn't make sense either, as OP did not apply for DCF.  Sounds like a mistake.

This is the response I got from my case inquiry which came from the Boston Field Office which would lead me to believe that is where it is...
