Hi guys. So I have sent in my aos papers in March and they received it end of March, then a few days later sent me a biometrics appointment for the 13 th of April and I went and got that done. Now it's the waiting... I know the average waiting time is 3 months... But is it three months from sending the papers in or three months from biometrics?

Also, does it sometimes happen that some cases are done quicker than the average time? Like it is for the i129f approval, some get picked up quicker... Like I got approved very quickly.

times always vary. just to be sure...you filed the EAD paperwork with your AOS?

I believe the clock starts when they accept your petition.

You mean it's possible for me to get it sooner than 3 months? And yes with aos. I am even more anxious to get it quick now cause I called my local dmv office and I can't get my state Id or driver's license witouth an ead. She also said the ead needs to have the validity date for over six months? How long are the Eads usually valid for? Edited by Katherina14

I'm in the same boat as you and same sort of time line. I've been informed by my legal aid that its from when they accept your case that the supposed 3 months starts. 1 down 2 more to go hey.

So from noa1 right?

And it was funny cuz the very first thing I received from them thru mail was the biometrics appointment letter and then a few days later I received all the noa1s for all the documents I sent in.

the EAD card will be valid for a year. And sure, it could be less than 90 days (my husband got his in about 2 months, but that was awhile ago now). Once you have it, you can absolutely get a driving license in IL.

I can only hope then! Hope it goes quickly, maybe it doesn't matter but I was surprised to get my biometrics appointment that soon.

Doesn't msc stand for Missouri service center? I'm so confused about all this. I've read somewhere that there's not an overall average processing time but that each office goes by their own because of how much work they have and all that. I can't even check the processing times for msc because it doesn't show on USCIS website, all I see is nsc vsc csc etc. Also idk if that means anything but I did have my biometrics done in Saint Louis Missouri. Does that mean that very place in Saint Louis is processing my documents? Why can't I find processing times for that place

msc. You?

Mine also is MSC, it is Missouri but now known as the National Benefits Centre, the processing times are on the site and for the EAP its still 3 months. I asked the question about why mine is MSC when I'm Dallas and I got a reply from someone saying it could be to do with AOS cases and to share the workload.

All family based adjustment cases are sent to the NBC and will have an MSC receipt#. It does not matter where you live.

~ Moved from AOS from Family Based main forum to Case Filing and Progress Reports sub-forum - topic is filing/case status ~
