USCIS recently began transferring some casework from the National Benefits Center to the Nebraska, Texas and California Service Centers to balance overall operational workload. At this point, the following casework is affected:
- I-130 Petition for Alien Relatives, filed by U.S. citizens for their eligible immediate relative (spouse, child, or parent).
The workload transfer will not change your original receipt number or delay the processing of your case. If your case was transferred, you will receive a notice from USCIS listing the transfer date and where your case will be processed.
You can check the status of your case at www.uscis.gov by entering your receipt number in the “Check Status” field. You can also sign up to receive automatic case status updates by email as your case is processed.
