TSC NSC – Processing dates updated

NSC Processing dates – updated January 23, 2009 TSC Processing dates – updated January 23. 2009 I-140 dates have moved and this time, for a change, we do think that the dates reflect reality for the most part. But the discrepancy between TSC and NSC remains and the wait continues to be around 15 months [...]

Sex, Lies, Videotape and Immigration

Ok that title has nothing to do with this post, that was just to get you excited on this dull Thursday morning. You probably checked your email in the hope that your attorney sent you a positive email about your immigration application. Then you checked your Processing dates page to see if anything changed on [...]

USCIS response to I-140 backlog, premium processing and other questions

The USCIS National Stakeholder Meeting on September 30 transcript is available now. Here’s the question about I-140′s that we were most interested in. Question: In TSC and NSC, there is dramatic delay for last July/August concurrently filed I-140. At the same time, TSC quickly approved many non-concurrently filed I-140 with application mailing dates later than [...]

It’s good to see a happy positive tone from posters, a rare thing in the immigration world. This bill will get signed into law tomorrow. Still no progress or even signs of improvement for relief for [...]

Prepare for more delay…

More reasons why it is unlikely that I-140 or for that matter, I-485 processing will continue to remian sluggish (it can’t get any worse, it’s rockbottom already for most of us) 1. There was a surge in EAD Renewal applications in August 2008. USCIS plicy requires applicants to apply a maximum of 120 days in [...]

USCIS Processing Dates Goof-up?

Notice the dates say “as of July 31, 2008″. Now even the USCIS posting dates are retrogressing .  I hope someone corrects this mess. https://egov.uscis.gov/cris/jsps/Processtimes.jsp?SeviceCenter=TSC https://egov.uscis.gov/cris/jsps/Processtimes.jsp?SeviceCenter=NSC The actual processing dates on the page does not appear to have changed..

USCIS NSC & TSC differences – How does this make any sense?

NSC (Nebraska Service Center) and TSC (Texas Service Center) are two branches of the USCIS. To the lay immigrant, they pretty much perform the same duties in two different states. Even if there are differences, as long as the two process the SAME form for 2 different sets of applicants, does it not make sense [...]
