  1. Hello! I have been researching the processing and filing process for the fiance visa and I see that the filing location on the form I-129F page on the USCIS site is Dallas, Texas. However, all the K1 visas are currently being processed at the California service center. If this is the case, is it possible to bypass sending it to Texas and instead ship it straight to the California P.O. box? Or do we have to send it to Texas in order for them to send it to California.. I'm not sure if this question has been posed already but if so please link the thread below. Thank you!
  2. Hello everyone! I filed our I-130 petition in March of 2021. The receipt showed Potomac Service Center but USCIS told me that was just the accepting center and it has been processing with California Service Center the whole time. I have seen quite a few approvals on VJ from the CSC for 2021 filers. I know every case is different and we are waiting patiently but we are wondering has anyone been approved from CSC that did NOT file for a K3 visa or request an expedite? Thank you and good luck to everyone in their visa journey ❤️
  3. My case has recently been transferred from Potomac to California , PD Oct 2021, CR1. Should I be sad about it?
  4. Hello, Brand new to this website, but so happy to see that something like this exists. My fiancee and I prepared our I-129 Form without a lawyer, so we'd figure we'd pose our question here to start. I, the US citizen, am the petitioner, and I applied for a K-1 Fiancee Visa for my fiancee who is a Chinese passport holder, though currently living in Dubai. Since submitting our K1 visa application in June of 2021 (it was routed to the California Service Center), my fiancee has changed his mailing address from one location in Dubai to another location in Dubai. Form AR-11 is very confusing to us, as we are unsure if it can be used ONLY to change his mailing address. Part of our confusion stems from the fact that the "new address" options only lists US states; we are looking to update his mailing address to an address in Dubai. Further, is Form AR-11 even supposed to be used for changing the address of the beneficiary? From our research, it looks like it might not be necessary to change his mailing address until after we receive NOA 2. In this case, I guess USCIS would email me, the petitioner, with NOA 2 information? (I entered my email information on Form I129F. Anyone have any experience with this, especially in Dubai? Thanks so much! Matt and Haofeng
