I-485 was transfered to NBC office MO

Asked 4 months ago - Chicago, IL

Hi my letter from USCIS saying my case(I-485 application based on asylum approval) is transferred to USCIS-NBC, LEE'S SUMMIT, MO.

What does this mean? Will I be called for an interview?
How long will it take for the case to get processed in new office - Missouri Office?
I was arrested for domestic violence but was never convicted - Will this have any impact?
