This is so frustrating!!!! anyone can help or experience same issue? 6 months...

Yeah I filed in October and I have been waiting 8 months. There are a lot of AOS filers from May, June and July still waiting and i've only seen 1 person from September approved. it takes about 1 year from filing to get approved if your eceived an Interview Waiver Letter.

I'm in the same boat as you...filed in August of 2014, then in October received a letter stating it would take a maximum of 6 more months. After 7 months I called and spoke to an agent who informed me he didn't know the status but would request a letter with updated status be sent - a month later I still haven't received any response. Wondering what is going on...it's been almost a year since filing!

Seeing the post above gives me some hope eventually they'll get to it. Never expected to wait so long.

It's simple...they sent the letter around March 23, 2015

saying process is expected to take another 6 months.

Bunch of people that filed around my time received the interview waiver

got notified of this 6 months processing time.

our timeline is very similar. Can you share how and when did you receive the decision date? Did you call them to file a service request?

How did you receive the letter about maximum of 6 months? Did you call USCIS for a service request?

The letter was received randomly, and it also stated something along the lines of "it's unlikely an interview will be needed".

Judging from the responses it seems like a year is about the timeframe most people are waiting?
