Reply from USCIS I-765 application 75+ days along with I-485 I-130

Hi Community

I filed , I-130, I-485, I765 simultaneously from a F-1 visa readjusting my status from a marital union with a US citizen, on OPT with a valid EAD which expired.

My I-485 application status has been reported as "Ready to be schedule for an interview" over month ago.

Since my I-765 application has being pending for more than 75 days (81 days currently) last week I called the USCIS to place an inquire in light of the time it has taken to process and since the USCIS says you should if you reach such limit.

Their answer was as follow.

'The status of this service request is:

Our review indicates that this case is actually within our current processing time. If you do not receive a decision or notice of other action within our current processing time, check our website for an update or call customer service at the number provided below'.

Now, the regular processing time for the I-765 application is a maximum of 90 days, however since they indicated that their timetables are based on the 'current time' and taking into account that the USCIS division processing my case is the 'national benefits centre' the processing time is clearly more than 90 days for there is a significant delay in this office and they do not currently offer a estimated processing time in the USCIS webpage, instead they indicate the last case successfully processed was filed on October 1 2014, that is 144 days!! for the processing time of a I-765 application linked to a readjustment of status request.

In terms of the I-485 (readjustment of status) the Chicago Office which is the office processing my application (I assume) for the National Benefits Centre DO NOT process I-485s the processing time according to the filing date of the last application successfully processed for they do not have an estimated time either, is 345 days!!! ALMOST A YEAR!

These news are disheartening specially considering that my I-485 like I said above has been in the 'ready to be schedule for an interview' status for over a month (Since Jan 20) I do not know what to make of this, what do you guys think?

Cheers

Jack

You will have the interview for your I-485 adjustment application at your local USCIS office. If you live in or near Chicago, then that is where it will be. If you are assuming Chicago because that is where you mailed the forms, then no. That was the Chicago Lockbox intake facility. They do not adjudicate forms there. They just intake. http://www.uscis.gov/about-us/directorates-and-program-offices/lockbox-intake/lockbox-intake-processing-questions-and-answers

It is my understanding that those 'last case processed' dates you see on websites are

meaningless and as the are not kept current.

Perhaps others have more info on this.

Well then my corresponding office would be Oklahoma City where they took my biometrics, so should I take their timetables as the basis of the length of my waiting for processing of the AOS application?

I would not take them as 'gospel', but they give a decent idea of how long you may have to wait.

Yes, and unfortunately OK says they are processing March 2014 cases now.

Yep so that's 347 days of processing time, oh my goodness this is so demoralizing. :cry: That means in turn that they would be processing my application by November 2015!! However I do not understand in light of such extensive timetables why did it change to 'ready to be schedule for an interview' in a matter of just 2 months from filing, I guess USCIS definition of 'ready' is quite difference from the rest of the world.

And you know what is ironic too? by the estimated time they might process my application we will already have 1 and 1/2 years of marriage only 6 months shy of not having to apply for conditional residency since we would have 2 years of marriage.

What a shame.

Anyway enough of my pity party.

I think some of the websites are not up to date and would probably disregard them. In January, when I checked some websites, most of them were stating that UCSIS was currently processing May 2014 applications. Your status may show "ready to be scheduled for interview" but I guess that depends on the backlog/how busy the local office is. Mine showed that for about 2 weeks before I got a date. Also I didn't have my interview at the same location I had my biometrics taken.

Well, the status of the case changed 3 days ago to 'card was ordered to be produced' saying that they will send them to the address I gave them, so at least there was a change hoping to get it soon!

The case was received on December 11 2014. That's 88 days!!
