If you are planning to file I-130 or I-485 application, the table above will give you an idea of how many applicants are ahead of you.

Since USCIS goes by last receipt date, if you are going to file your I-485 (or just filed), you will be placed behind this queue. Exception is if application is preadjudicated then it would go by PD.

In case you missed it, few days ago USCIS began transferring many I-130 applications from NBC to various centers to balance service center workload. Please see link below:

Many of you may have received a transfer notice receipt. Please remember to update the tracker with any new data. We have added a new column called "Case Transferred To".
