I-130 LPR - Change Status

I filed I-130 for my wife last year while I was a LPR. I recently become a US citizen. How do I change my status with USCIS about my I-130? Will this change the processing time of I-130? Thanks in advance.

Status changed. What's next?

I filed I-130 last year as a PR for my wife. I recently become a USC. What I should do about the I-130? I was told I could call USCIS to change my status and then file I-129F.
What will USCIS need for status change, the copy of Naturalization Certificate? Will I get a new NOA (I-797C) for the I-130? When can I start filing 1-129F?
Thanks in advance

I found an old thread relating to this in another forum. http://www.immigrationportal.com/sho....php?p=1867522

Hope it helps!

Congratulations on your naturalization!


From the National Visa Center FAQs:

When I filed a petition for my relative I was a legal permanent resident (green card holder). I recently became a U.S. citizen. How can I upgrade the petition?

Please make a copy of your Naturalization Certificate. Send the copy - NOT the original - to the NVC with a letter containing the beneficiary name and case number of the petition you want to upgrade.

Please see the NVC’s contact information.

(see linked page)

Thank you all for the info. My case is little different in that my I-130 is still pending at CSC (and I think USCIS has not started processing it until the priority date is reached). So I want to change my status and hope USCIS will begin to process my I-130.
