still waiting for I-485 letter

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My wife has received her travel documents and her employment authorization card, but no letter stating when her green card appointment will be. Yet the USCIS website has the following message when I type in her case number:

"As of February 17, 2015, we are ready to schedule your Form I-485, Application to Register Permanent Residence or to Adjust Status, Receipt Number #####, for an interview. We will schedule your interview and send you a notice. Please follow any instructions in the notice."

It's strange that it's now mid March and we still haven't received a letter for an appointment the USCIS webpage said was ready to be scheduled almost a month ago. Is this normal?

It might be that bad weather across the country has adversely affected scheduling, even in temperate climes. Be patient awhile longer, then consider setting an InfoPass appointment to inquire.


06-04-2007 = TSC stamps postal return-receipt for I-129f.

06-11-2007 = NOA1 date (unknown to me).

07-20-2007 = Phoned Immigration Officer; got WAC#; where's NOA1?

09-25-2007 = Touch (first-ever).

09-28-2007 = NOA1, 23 days after their 45-day promise to send it (grrrr).

10-20 & 11-14-2007 = Phoned ImmOffs; "still pending."

12-11-2007 = 180 days; file is "between workstations, may be early Jan."; touches 12/11 & 12/12.

12-18-2007 = Call; file is with Division 9 ofcr. (bckgrnd check); e-prompt to shake it; touch.

12-19-2007 = NOA2 by e-mail & web, dated 12-18-07 (187 days; 201 per VJ); in mail 12/24/07.

01-09-2008 = File from USCIS to NVC, 1-4-08; NVC creates file, 1/15/08; to consulate 1/16/08.

01-23-2008 = Consulate gets file; outdated Packet 4 mailed to fiancee 1/27/08; rec'd 3/3/08.

04-29-2008 = Fiancee's 4-min. consular interview, 8:30 a.m.; much evidence brought but not allowed to be presented (consul: "More proof! Second interview! Bring your fiance!").

05-05-2008 = Infuriating $12 call to non-English-speaking consulate appointment-setter.

05-06-2008 = Better $12 call to English-speaker; "joint" interview date 6/30/08 (my selection).

06-30-2008 = Stokes Interrogations w/Ecuadorian (not USC); "wait 2 weeks; we'll mail her."

07-2008 = Daily calls to DOS: "currently processing"; 8/05 = Phoned consulate, got Section Chief; wrote him.

08-07-08 = E-mail from consulate, promising to issue visa "as soon as we get her passport" (on 8/12, per DHL).

08-27-08 = Phoned consulate (they "couldn't find" our file); visa DHL'd 8/28; in hand 9/1; through POE on 10/9 with NO hassles(!).

Are you being serious? Weather is the last thing I'd imagine would be causing a delay. I was thinking that maybe they mailed the notice, and the letter got mis-delivered. What I'm wondering is, if the letter did get mis-delivered, would the case status change to say the letter was mailed and an appointment had been made? I'm thinking the current case status already indicates the letter was mailed.

Usually there is a statement when the status changes online regarding receiving a notice within 30 days. I would suggest calling the National Customer Service Center number (I believe it is 800 375 5283) on Wednesday which based on your date above would be 30 days.

Good Luck!

Yep, you are correct. I called USCIS last week and they said the webpage would be updated when the interview was scheduled. For now, I'm still waiting.
