Ninfa Luna, Assistant Center Director for Documents of the CIS Texas Service Center, recently sent our State Bar of Texas Committee the following update to share with everyone who might be interested. The Texas Service Center, through a cooperative effort with the Nebraska Service Center, has moved the processing date of preference category I-130s to October 1, 1998 and the processing date of the immediate relative category I-130s to
June 25, 2001. This concentrated effort is expected to continue.
Preference categories include:
U.S. citizen filing for unmarried son or daughter over 21
U.S. citizen filing for married son/daughter over 21
U.S. citizen filing for brother or sister
Permanent resident filing for spouse or child under 21
Permanent resident filing for unmarried son/daughter over 21
Immediate relative categories include: U.S. citizen filing for spouse, parent or child under 21.
Hopefully this new effort to adjudicate I-130 petitions will alleviate the significant backlogs for these important family based cases.
Paul Parsons, Chairman
State Bar of Texas Committee on Laws Relating to Immigration & Nationality
