Interview delay - Is it because I moved after greencard application?

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Currently it has been 2 months since I went in for biometrics and my status is not even "in-line" yet. I am wondering whether this is due to the fact that after the green card application, I moved to a location that falls under a different USCIS office jurisdiction.

My green card application was with the San Jose office and my N400 is with the Sacramento office. Can this cause delays as USCIS needs to send my file from San Jose to Sacramento?

Has anyone else experienced anything like this? (applying for N400 from a different USCIS office than your GC)

Moving can cause long delays, but you may not be there quite yet. 2 months isn't all that long to wait to be placed in line. Some people who applied in July and August weren't placed in line until January; that's overly long, but it isn't infrequent. You can contact USCIS to follow up, but until you hit the 4 month mark, it's probably just a case of slow processing.

Your main concern should be whether or not they have actually sent your file to the correct office. If you moved before you got your biometrics notice, but they sent you an appointment in the correct city, then you shouldn't worry.

Thanks....yes, my moving happened prior to n400 application and after I completed the GC process.
