AOS application fees have not been cashed and when does the USCIS notify you when the AOS forms are being processed?

Filed: AOS (pnd) Country: Hong Kong

I recently filed my wife's AOS forms on 1/22 and they were received at Chicago on 1/24. So far my checks have not been debited yet. Does anyone know the approximate timeframe that I will receive a letter back from USCIS that our applications are received and they are in processing pending there are no RFEs? We live in Los Angeles, CA so will each state have different response times? We're just curious because we have another friend who lives in Seattle and filed her papers roughly two weeks ago and her checks were cashed a day after they were received and she already got notice to make her biometric appointment.

First they will send you NOA1 letter, you can use the case number on it to start tracking and setting up for email notification on USCIS website.


Many mostly they will enter it into the system, start some name checks, and then quickly decide if interview is needed and sends to field office,OR that adjudication and approval can happen without interview. If they think no interview is required, the case will be sent to CSC for further processing, sometimes CSC feels interview is require, and the case is sent to your field office for interview.

Best thing to do set up account on USCIS site and then track the petition.

Biometrics appointment are set by the field office, so timing can vary depending on how busy the field office is.

One other thing, you may be interested in "A Candle for Love" that site specializes in Chinese immigrations and relationships.
