In USCIS Memo: PM-602-0043
May 14, 2012
I read some information in regards to DCF filing of form I-130
"If the USCIS FOD authorizes DOS to adjudicate a case, the consular officer may only adjudicate a case that is clearly approvable. If the case is not clearly approvable, DOS must forward the case to USCIS. The following are some examples of exceptional circumstances when USCIS will likely authorize DOS to accept and process an I-130 petition.
Close to aging out:
Adoption of a child:
Short notice of position relocation: A U.S. Citizen petitioner, living and working abroad, who receives a job relocation within the same company or subsidiary to the United States, or an offer of a new job in the United States with very little notice. "
Looking at the last point, if for example, as we live abroad, my wife (U.S. Citizen and the petitioner) would receive a job offer in Texas, could we be legible to file form I-130 DCF
with the US Embassy in Amsterdam?
Again, Thank you for your time and help.
