USCIS Center Change/ I-130 (merged)

12 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone, 

 

I filed an I-130 petition for my husband on February 14, 2020. I received NOA1 from the Texas Service Center on 2/27.

I called USCIS office today because my  petition is outside of the normal processing time per Texas's timeline [6.5-7.5 months].

The officer told me that my case was moved to the Nebraska Center in March where the processing time is 21-28 months, but I was not notified of the move. 

I was under the impression that my processing time would not be impacted by the move. Could you please share if you had a similar experience and what steps you took to sort this out?  This is very disheartening.

There's nothing to sort out.  You cannot request a case transfer to another service center even if you were not notified of the move.  In any case, the current estimate for I-130 processing (for spouse of USC) at Nebraska Service Center is 6.5 to 8.5 months.  Not much different from Texas SC.

I meant it was moved to the Vermont Center where the time is 21-27 months.

Like I said in your other post on this topic, there's nothing you can do to sort it out.  You cannot request a case transfer to another service center even if you were not notified of the previous move.

I did not move. I am still living at the same address. I received mail in February stating that the case is at the TSC. Upon calling USCIS this week, I learned it was moved to Vermont few weeks ago.

Has anyone asked a live agent via chat which service center their case is being processed at? I asked an agent  this question as my online status says Nebraska however my NOA1 hard copy says Potomac. The agent told me their records only say Nebraska...unsure whether to trust this answer as surely Potomac should have showed up somewhere in their records if that’s where my receipt came from. I asked if maybe my case was transferred to Nebraska but she said there was no record of that. Also it seems like everyone has the same online status of Nebraska and to  trust the hard copy of the NOA1.
