Hi everyone

 

I want your advice if you guys have similar¬†experience as mine....ūüė≠

 

My husband(US citizen) and I submitted I-130 last Apr and got NOA-1 on Apr.26.2019 and there was no updates so far until today.

I noticed one email was sent from USCIS and it said that

 

//////QUOTE//////

 

*** DO NOT RESPOND TO THIS E-MAIL *** 

There has been a recent processing action taken on your case. 
Receipt Number: LINXXXXXXXXXXX

Application Type: I130, PETITION FOR ALIEN RELATIVE 

Your Case Status: Initial Review 

On March 16, 2020, we transferred your Form I130, PETITION FOR ALIEN RELATIVE, Receipt Number LIN1990417094, to another office for processing and sent you a transfer notice. The notice explains why we transferred your case. Please follow the instructions in the notice. If you do not receive your notice by April 15, 2020, please go to www.uscis.gov/e-request to request a copy of the notice. If you move, go to www.uscis.gov/addresschange to give us your new mailing address. 

//////UNQUOTE////////

 

What does "Initial Review" mean ?? and does it mean that USCIS would reject our application??

 

our case was sent and confirmed its receipt Apr.26.2019 so if there were some mistakes, USCIS would have informed us earlier but we haven't heard/ received any notice or request so far.

trying not to but really getting nervous.... I'd like to hear your advice what we should do next.

 

 

Thank you & stay home and be safe everyone!!!!

It simply means your I-130 was initially at Nebraska....but has been transferred to another service center.......USCIS routinely transfers cases across service centers to balance workload.   The case has not yet been adjudicated.......and RFEs are always a possibility.

 

BTW:  Our I-130 was transferred in exactly the same manner.  It did not slow the case process.

Thank you for your advice!!! So they just transfer my case from Nebraska to other center.But as USCIS posted on their website, their office is tempolary closed due to COVID-19. Processing speed will be slow definitely. Well, we'll just wait until further notice. The situation in US is  getting worse and worse day by day.

 

Please be safe!!!!

As far as I have seen, USCIS service centers are still working.......Field offices have closed to the public.
