The USCIS Vermont Service Center (VSC) announced that it prepared for FY 2010 H-1B filings by sending I-751 Petitions to Remove the Conditions of Residence and I-539 Applications to Extend or Change Nonimmigrant Status to the California Service Center (CSC) for adjudication. As of early March 2009, the VSC had sent approximately 50,000 I-751 petitions and 14,000 I-539 applications to the CSC. In March 2009, the VSC also sent approximately 3,000 H-1B extension petitions to the CSC because the CSC had more capacity to handle these cases.
