I sent my k-1 visa petition to Dallas Lockbox, to which service center they send it, California or Vermont? I see that California service center works faster than Vermont.

    Personally, I think that the service center directors have a competition and try to 'skew' their statistics ... to make it look like one center is 'better/faster' than another.

    Keep in mind that, at this time of year, no one in the government works fast.

    But as my colleague says, don't rely on the published processing times for an accurate prediction of processing times. Rarely are they accurate to the day, and often they are average times, so you can potentially find out a result several days or weeks outside the "average" processing times.
