USCIS Transfers Certain Pending I-130 Petitions to the National Benefits Center

October 23, 2013

USCIS has announced that they are transferring certain already-filed I-130 petitions to the National Benefits Center in an attempt to “balance the workload.” From their message to stakeholders:

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 following form:

 If your case was transferred, USCIS will send you a notice listing the transfer date and where your case will be processed. Your original receipt number will not change and this will not further delay the processing of your case.

I-130 processing times have slowed recently, so hopefully this change will lead to quicker approvals for pending petitions.
