Biometrics question out of town for adoption

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

So I am a May 2015 filer. My NOA1 receipt says May 14th. I still have not received my biometrics appoint. We are adopting a baby from Florida (we are in Mn) and the expectant mom is in the hospital with high blood pressure and could deliver sooner than her June 21st due date. My concern is if we have to fly down at a moments notice I could miss the letter to even know I have an appointment. Because of state regulations

I will be required to stay in Florida for at least 2-3 weeks for paperwork for the adoption after the baby is born, So, what do

I do? Is there a way to check online that I have an appointment scheduled so I can reschedule it until I am back. Help!


Aos:

10-01-12. Sent AOS, AP and EAD

10-09-12- Recieved NOA's for forms

10-24-12- Successfully walked in for biometrics (originally scheduled for 11-08-12)

11-26-12- Made info pass appointment for emergency advance parole. Denied, but agent called service center to request an expedite.

11-28-12- Agent at Infopass called me to let me know service center approved my request.

12-01-12- Advance parole received in the mail (2 page version, not combo card)

We could, but we were hoping to hold the mail as we don't know how long we will be gone. But if need be, we will do that. I was just wondering if there was any other solution.
