Hello everyone,

This is my first post, and I would like to share my experience with AOS so far, and would like to hear your opinions.

Currently my wife (US Citizen and main sponsor) and I are stuck with the AOS process since there has not been any

progress since November 2008, according to my account information on the USCIS website.

Following is the activities within our AOS process:

1)- Sent I-130 on October 1 2008 to Chicago

--> Received letter stating that the case was sent to California then to National Benefit Center.

2)- Sent I-485 and I-765 on October 17, 2008 to Chicago

--> Received notice stating that the applications were received on October 22, 2008

--> Applications transfered to Nationanal Benefit Center

3)- Received Request for Initial Evidence on November 7, 2008 and case put on Hold

- Request for document of Joint Sponsor (We sent it on October 17, 2008, I guess USCIS lost it....)

4)- Biometrics completed on November 17th, 2008

5)- Reply for Request for Initial Evidence sent to National Benefit Center and received on November 25th.

--> Case Resumed for I-485 but pending for I-765

Well, November 25th 2008 was the last activity shown on the my on-line case status, and it has been 78 days since then.

We have not received EAD or interview notice yet.... We did called Customer Service regarding EAD two days ago and we were told that service request will be sent.

Also, it is strange that I-130 and 1-485 were transfered to National Benefit Center, since there seems to be no processing of either forms.

The recepits that we received do not have processing times so it is very confusing....

We would like to know if any of you are going through similar situdation, and/or have any recommendation/advice for us.

Please let us know.

Thanks,

jandro18

I would suggest you jump in to this thread http://www.visajourney.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=154288

It's all people who filed in your time frame. It's long, so jump in around December dates where things started happening for people. There's a little of everything...delays, RFEs, no biometric appointment, service requests, etc. There's a spreadsheet of the progress of the October filers here if you want to compare progress. http://spreadsheets.google.com/ccc?key=pze...X2bQoUgSQKgZsDw

If you want to add your data to the timeline, just post in the thread.

All things being equal, you should know by March when the interview will be. I imagine the way you submitted the documents (not complete, not all at once) will slow things down for you. Government works better if there is a complete file package for someone to review and then process. Yours came at them in dribs and drabs.

Yea... That was our mistake. We thought we needed to submit I-130 before submitting I-485. I guess the lesson is not to rush things and study more carefully beforehand. We just hope that our application did not get lost in process.

What happens if there is no change in application progress after the Service Request after 30 or 45 days? Should we call back

the customer service or make an appointment for infopass?
