Well, I have another Infopass Appointment coming up tomorrow morning. As usual, I don't expect much outcome from it, but wanted to ask here if there are any set of questions that any of you would recommend that I can ask that might help me. My I-485 interview decision is nearing its 3 month delay, without any reason. The last Infopass I scheduled two weeks ago, I asked if its the background checks and I was told, that background checks are all fine. God knows that the AO is waiting for. Garden City isn't even that busy, so a hold up seems un-ncessary and biased. Any suggestions?

I hope, they dont get annoyed with me for scheduling Infopass that soon, AGAIN.

Tell me about it. Nothing in the past NArocks..... Clean & Impeccable. The only recorded offence that I have is getting a ticket for using a cell phone while driving :). The interview couldn't have gone any better either. All I can say is that maybe my birth place is raising alarm and that would fall in the category of willful discrimination. Since I belong to Pakistan and that too from a part where the US military is eagerly pursuing a war against terror. Dont know why that would even be an issue since its easy to get the citizenship here than to get a visit visa from my country where the background checks are extremely rigorous. Sigh!

Have you tried requesting to speak with the officer that conducted your AOS interview? Is that even possible?

Visacheck: during my last infopass appointment two weeks ago, I asked the officer if it would be possible to see the AO who had interviewed me. His reply was, its not possible now since he is conducting interviews at the moment. So I assume, people do come with similar requests and even at times do get to speak to the AO's that interview them. Otherwise he would have told me that its not allowed. But since the officers always reply so bluntly and always seem to be eager to get rid of you, that I find it difficult to ask more questions. Lets See what happens now. I have sent letters to the Congressman and the Senator though. But that itself will be months before they take any action on it, if they ever do. The service request I placed came back with a reply stating that I'll hear from them in 60 days from date of issuance of the letter regarding my query. So thats all there is to it for now.

While it does sound discriminating... I think they do base the AOS partly on the country of origin. However, regardless of where you are from, taking 3 months to tell you absolutely nothing is just rediculous. I really hope they tell you something... I would again press the issue of speaking to your officer...maybe ask them if you can wait for them if they are busy.

Good luck!

hey saspakbhai,

i am agree with lechatnoir. ask them if you can wait for the officer who took your interview. do you remmeber his name. if they say no then ask is that any date when you go to garden city and talk to your interviewd IO? or say you are readu to go to mahanttan if he can talk to you over there. try to talk to same thing round and round so may be they come up with something.

Good Luck

Thank you all for your wishes and prayers. I just got back from the Infopass Appointment. As usual, the officer told me that a decision hasn't been reached yet. I informed her that I plan to leave the country for some time and intend to use the AP. She said, as long as I dont have any overstay's I'll be fine. I asked her that my concern is that what i leave and then find out that I have been called for another interview. her reply was that its highly unlikey that i will be called for another interview and a decision should be reached based on this interview. She also mentioned that my case shouldn't that long now. Thats was it.

I did mention on the form that is given out to us when we report to the infopass window, that I wished to see the AO that interviewed me. They never mentioned it was a possibility and said they'll compile my query and personally hand it to the AO who has my file.

Saspk-I am new on this forum, but I just want to tell you that you have my compassion and understanding.

I am also in the middle of uncertain situation and I don;t know when to expect a response from USCIS. I had my AOS interview on Sept.15, everything went great, but the officer said that he was not able to complete my case that day because he didn't have my biometrics! :blink:

I had my biometrics done for my EAD at the beginning of August, but i thought that would cover the I-485 biometrics as well. Wrong!

One week before the interview I received a bio appointment letter for I-485 that was scheduled 2 weeks AFTER the interview.

At that time I thought it was an error and I decided that I would go anyway, whatever happens at the interview. I found out later at the interview that actually it was not an error, they have never been captured! :angry:

So I did my bio on September 30th and now I'm waiting and waiting... :clock: and nobody is able to tell me how long it's going to take to see my Green Card in the mail.

Just my 2 cents...to let you know that there are also people waiting after the interview like you.

Lots of Good luck!

Thank you for your time and post juliava. Yours seem to be a genuine matter and I am positive you'll hear positive news the moment your office receives clearance and your biometrics. Keep on checking and if not too inconvenient, make infopasses every few weeks if you don't hear from them soon. I have a feeling your ordeal will be over soon and I pray and hope, you don't have to wait as long as me. There is a lot of mismanagement within the USCIS as well. My officer while interviewing me for the I-485 was clueless to the fact that my I-130 had already been approved by the CSC and he had no mention of it while he was going through my file on his table and his computer. So, in your case, its seems understandable if they are holding it due to the biometrics which will be a piece of cake. My prayers and best wishes are with you.

Thank you Saspk!!!

What is really disappointing is the fact that sometimes these people don't check our "AOS journey". Why in the world would you schedule a bio appointment AFTER the interview date when it's supposed to be before?Now after the bio, I start to wonder if they are really able to put everything together soon! :wacko:

I saw that you requested to speak to your interview's officer. Is it possible to do that if you don't even remember the officer's name?I am one of those who doesn't! :blink:

Well, USCIS is a mystery:)

Actually, yes you can request to see your interviewing officer and if he is available, free & willing, he can see you. You don't have to know his name, since its already on file when you go to your local field office and they open up your case online. I remember when I went the first time and was being handled at the booth, The officer took my Interviewing officers name and said he hasn't reached a decision yet. Since I didn't mention the AO's name, I knew they have all the details, just by punching in your Alien # or Receipt Number. In my case, both the times I placed a request to see my AO, it was morning time and I know its pretty busy for these guys since thats when most of the interviews are conducted and i never really pressed hard. I hope this helped.
