It just means that USCIS is processing the application at local office instead of a service center. If they need more details, they will contact you.
Please remember to add your case to the GC tracker: http://www.mygcvisa.com/tracker

@ Amazon:
I am still waiting to be approved and I have not received RFE, but I found this online, and I read stories where sometimes they did not accept a regular photocopy.

http://www.immihelp.com/...tion/certified-copy.html 

We only sent a photocopy of our marriage certificate, do you think this could be a problem?
On the USCIS website it says:

To complete the process, the petitioner must submit:

Form I-130 (signed with proper fee), with all required documentation, including:
Two completed and signed G-325A forms (one for you and one for your spouse)
A copy of your civil marriage certificate
A copy of all divorce decrees, death certificates, or annulment decrees that demonstrate that all previous marriages entered into by you and/or your spouse were terminated
Passport style photos of you and your spouse (see Form I-130 instructions for photo requirements)
Evidence of all legal name changes for you and/or your spouse (may include marriage certificates, divorce decrees, court judgment of name change, adoption decrees, etc.)

So a little confused, but I hope it is not going to be a problem and we're going to be approved soon.
Thanks.
FK

I submitted just a copy of the marriage certification, not a certified copy. We got an approval without any RFE.
