Topic: Transfer to NBC in Oct 2017 (or earlier) and heard nothing

I have no idea. When I went for an infopass I asked the officer and he responded he couldn't provide such information. All I see in my case history is that " We will assign an officer to your case and notify you about the decision"

Topic: Case is transfered to Vermont

There is a thread where people discuss transfer from NBC to Vermont. I believe so far you are the only one reporting that you got a physical notice for transfer to Vermont. I myself got online updates about transfers but no physical notice and today that I talked to an L2 officer, she confirmed my file is in Missouri NBC. So maybe you had better call and find a way to talk to an L2 officer to confirm if the transfer actually had happened.

Yes there is one from Baltimore who got interview. Thou, it is not clear what is the basis of prioritization . You need to take into account PD, RD, country of changeability, and category.

Wow. Yes it seems it is 192 days to reach to Baltimore processing time. But these timings are for family based cases and not employment cases. It is so unfair.

Topic: Transfer to NBC in Oct 2017 (or earlier) and heard nothing

I am also in the same boat. I filed in 18 May 2017, my file was transferred on Nov 8. one day later I had another online update informing me of another transfer. However, I never received any notices for those transfers to vermont and Mesquite. I raised two SR (Submitted online inquires) and went to infopass. They were not responded. Today after so many calling I talked to an L2 officer and he confirmed my file is in NBC waiting for an officer to review. When I asked her about an estimate to get my GC she said 192 days from now, which will be end of July and it will be 14 months from when I filed my 485. I don't know from where she brought 192 days. Any idea?


I haven't heard anything since Nov 8.

Topic: Case Transferred to NBC - November/December 2017

Hi,

I believe transfer to Mesquite texas is an error in their online system. I also get an online update on Nov 8 that my case is transferred. And then when I called the hotline it said my case was transferred to Vermont. And then after about a couple of weeks, the hotline message changed to Mesquite Texas. There are also other users in Trackitt having the same experience, so you are not alone. When I was for an info pass, I was told my case is in NBC. The only notice I received was transfer to NBC and no other notices regarding to Vermont or Mesquite. One of the users who was in the same boat actually received his interview notice. So I am convinced there is no transfer to Mesquite or Vermont. Your case is probably in NBC and hopefully you will get your interview notice soon.

Congrats and thank you for sharing. One quick question: Does the interview notice come from NBC or the local office, Baltimore?

Topic: In-person appointment at TSC

Sorry to hear that!
Online status is not accurate sometimes. There are several instances reported in this forum. If I were you I would check my case history online; fort that you need to create an account in USCIS website. You can see what had happened to your case and if really it was actually reviewed which resulted in an RFE. Further, usually cases are transferred to NBC and then you may get RFE, therefore I think your case is not in Texas and traveling there doesn't help. Besides usually you have two months to respond and you are still within that window.
About the info pass, they are usually useless, however, there is always exceptions. But try to be nice, I know for fact that officers in the local offices have lots of information about your case, so try to be nice to them, so you can get an answer. For SR you need to wait 30 days for a response. I hope it help.

Topic: Immigration Medical Exam - Positive TB Skin Test

Because of BCG vaccine we, Iranians, received in childhood, we will all be positive if tested for TB by skin. my surgeon knew that and recommended that I do a blood test instead of skin test. It was more expensive but was the right thing to do. So don't worry. you are fine. Also, your case processing will probably take more than one year and you will eventually get an RFE to repeat your test:)

I went to an info pass session today in the morning in Baltimore office. It was completely useless. The officer didn't even know what NIW is. He even said NRC instead of NBC and then he corrects himself. he fist said my case is in NBC and then kind of say may be it is here in Baltimore. They are processing October 2016!

Topic: i485 Case got transferred from TSC to NBC to VSC

You are right. I am not expecting to receive any new transfer notice but I expect to get a response from USCIS. They will probably sent me the transfer to NBC notice.

Topic: i485 Case got transferred from TSC to NBC to VSC

Yes, I called the hotline two days ago and it said the case is transferred to Mesquite in Texas. However, the date of transfer is same as before! I don't understand how they send my case at the same day to two different locations! I raised and SR and ask for the notice again, I haven't received it yet and it is almost two weeks. This transfer to Texas also happened for my dependent.

What I did was that I created an account and it allowed me to review the history of my case. In my case history, there is only one transfer on Nov 8, which must be transfer to NBC and then there is a "We received your case" on Nov 16. There is no transfer on Nov 9 as what my online status shows!

There is a thread on this forum titled "case transfer to Mesquite" or sth like this, I was reading yesterday; apparently sth like this "transfer to Mesquite" had happened in 2015, surprisingly to a couple of people of which one of them was called Mreza. He finally got his GC.
So I believe we shouldn't worry about it. Our cases are probably in NBC and we will get interview notice soon.

Topic: I-485 self filing

Salam,

They rejected; they didn't deposit the check, they didn't accept my whole package. Then I filed again and send everything with latest forms. I filed before this recent change in forms. So I used Chen's old package. However, my friends who are filing now are working with Chen, so I know that they haven't updated their package yet.

The recent changes are about merging G325 with 485, so I believe you should be still able to use their package. let me know if I can be of further help.

Topic: I-485 self filing

I filed for me and my husband myself, using the Do-it-yourself package my I140 lawyer provided. It din't make sense to me to pay around $3k bucks for filing I485. I got rejected first because of not filling the last revision of forms but then I corrected them and sent back. I am still waiting for results. My case was kind of simple; student always on F visa, so I believe there was not any complication at all. If you want to file it on your own, I believe it is possible but if you have a crazy history of being on various visas with out-of-status periods and other complications, it may turn into a problem and RFE that ultimately you need a lawyer.
