10/21/2013: Some I-130 Petitions Transferred from NBC to NSC, TSC, and CSC to Balance Overall Workloads Among Service Centers

The USCIS announces that USCIS recently began transferring some casework from the National Benefits Center to the Nebraska, Texas and California Service Centers to balance overall operational workload. The affected casework includes the I-130, Petition for Alien Relative, filed by U.S. citizens for their eligible immediate relative (spouse, child, or parent). If your case was transferred, USCIS will send you a notice listing the transfer date and where your case will be processed.
