Reg I-130 -Case Was Received At My Local Office

HiMy brother applied I-130 for me. the case status says “Case Was Received At My Local Office”

On January 5, 2010, we received your Form I-130, Immigrant Petition for Relative, Fiance(E), or Orphan, Receipt

Number xxxxxxxxx, at your local office. If you move, go to How to Change Your Address | USCIS to give us your new mailing

address. I received an approval notice dated Mar-10-2010. Does it mean my I-130 is approved. Why the case status

still says your case was received instead of saying that approval notice is mailed on Mar-10-2010. Please reply.


Hello Usha, I’m in the same boat. My PD is Nov 2009 and I see the same status as yours. Do you know anything about local office? Did you contact anyone? Please advise
