United States Citizenship & Immigration Service Addresses Delays in Processing Immediate Relative I-130 Petitions

Contributed by Melanie Corrin, Senior Attorney

Recently, in response to repeated discussions with stakeholders including the American Immigration Lawyers Association regarding serious delays in processing I-130; Immigrant Petitions for Alien Relatives, the United States Citizenship & Immigration Service stated that USCIS is focused on addressing the delays and believes it will again reach a five month average by May of 2014.  To address those petitions that have been filed in the last twelve months, USCIS began transferring a number of petitions to additional service centers to better focus their efforts, and reach the backlog.

If you have received a transfer notice, but have not yet heard from your attorney, please contact us.  Sometimes notices may not have reached us yet and we can ensure proper tracking of your petition.
