Letter from homeland about AOS

I had my interview a year ago and the only thing left is the name check, which has been in process for a year now. I got a letter from Homeland Security today saying it's taken this long because they are still waiting/doing the background check and if I didn't hear anything in 6 months from the date of the letter to contact them. Does anyone know what this is about? Has anyone gotten this letter while waiting for AOS to go through? Is a good sign or really no sign at all??

Thanks

I never recieved such letter and my wife's name check took a little over a month. I think they check with the country of orgin as well as here, so depending on how much cooperation they have, it may take a while.

Yes, we've received a couple of those letters, both after making inquiries on the phone. Did you make an inquiry, by any chance? Also, did the letter come with an explanation of how they do the name checks and why they're important? (try not to laugh when you read that, it's such bull$#it)

Unfortunately, that letter just means that your case is still pending. We had our interview a while ago too (May 2006). I think they encourage you to call every six months just to make sure something hasn't fallen through the cracks--like that the name check has been completed and your local office is dragging their feet with the subsequent processing.

On a positive note, several old cases have been approved recently (check out the name check thread), so maybe you'll get good news soon too.
