USCIS Transferring Cases From Vermont Service Center to California Service Center

In order to balance workloads, USCIS recently began transferring some cases from the Vermont Service Center to the California Service Center. The affected cases include:

Form I-130, Petition for Alien Relative
Form I-751, Petition to Remove the Conditions on Residence

How You Will Be Affected:

If your Form I-130 case is being transferred, USCIS will send you a notice listing the transfer date and the new location where your case will be processed. Your original receipt number will not change and this will not delay your case’s processing except for the additional time needed to transfer the file to the new location.

If your Form I-751 case is being transferred, USCIS will send you a notice listing the transfer date and the new location where your case will be processed. Your original receipt number will not change and this will not delay your case’s processing except for the additional time needed to transfer the file to the new location. The words “Case Type: CRI89 Approved Removal on Conditions” will be printed on the transfer notice. This refers to your pending Form I-751. The transfer notice may not contain the original receipt number of your pending Form I-751.

The filing location and instructions for these forms will not change. Please continue to file the forms at the address noted on the form instructions and on the USCIS website at www.uscis.gov.

How to Track the Status of Your Case:

You can check the status of your case by entering your receipt number in Case Status Online. You can also sign up to receive automatic case status updates by email.

If you do not receive a decision within the published processing time for the California Service Center then you may submit an inquiry using e-Request or call the National Customer Service Center at 1-800-375-5283. For TDD for the deaf and hard of hearing, call 1-800-767-1833.

When calling to ask about your case status, tell USCIS your original receipt number and that your case was transferred to a new location.

If USCIS sends you any notice, such as a request for evidence, please read the notice carefully. Make sure you respond to the same service center that sent you the notice.

If you move while your case is pending, then you must tell USCIS your new address as soon as possible after you move so we can notify you of any action on your case. You can change your address online or by calling the National Customer Service Center.

If you have any questions or concerns please consult an experienced immigration attorney or contact our immigration law firm today at 407-545-2534.
