Daughters Biometrics Appointment Letter / Receipt Number Not Received

19 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My wife has really been sweating this one !!! Her biometrics appointment is for Monday afternoon and it is now Friday (3 days before the appt.) and we still haven't received my daughters biometrics appointment letter ..

UGHHHH WHAT ARE WE GOING TO DO ??????????

Well, I just got off of the phone with USCIS and explained the situation to a customer service rep and he said, "Just take her along and they should go ahead and do her while you are there." I then explained that everybody I have talked to said they got appointment letters for their minor children as well and at the very least I thought I should have her biometrics receipt number when we go, he replied, " Please hold while I research your question." About a minute later he gets on the phone and says, "I am going to have to escalate your case, will you please hold again?" About 15 seconds later another individual answers and I explain the situation to her, she asks for my daughters A# and looks up her case.. She then tells me my daughters biometrics receipt number and tells me to go online at uscis.gov and print out the case status page and to present it on Monday when my wife has her biometrics so they will do my daughters biometrics at the same time. WHEW !!!!

Well, for now it seems we have the problem solved but only time can tell what Monday will bring. I'll let you know for sure when I know for sure ..

Good luck to everyone in their journey,

CB

Sorry to say they at the Government don't care if you make a 2.5 hour trip.

heartless I know but I was at the Omaha Office and seen a few in the same boat you are in.

They were all told they would need to come back.

Take the child with you and hopefully ... just pray they will ride hers on the back of your wifes interview letter.

But don't get upset if they don't.....just be glad they are both with you.

My wife an I have been waiting 6 months for her Conditional Green card while other recieve them in a month or two.

they say it can take up to about a year at times.

I am just glad to have her here so we can enjoy each other with or without the Green Card.

Sounds good and hope it is! There's confusion on children having to do biometrics. I doubt if you paid for the child to do so.

Biometrics wasn't as hard as I expected. I even did mine more than a week from the time they scheduled me. Not many people in there either. So, relax and everything will go smooth I bet you that. Smile :D

I am in the same situation... My wife's appointment is Thursday and we still do not have an appointment letter for "little" payxibka... I had almost come to the conclusion that an under 14 child did not need biometrics eventhough we had to pay for it...

Please report back on Monday....

Sorry Guys, we had a machine shed burn down TOTAL LOSS .. lots of stuff to do !!!

My wife and I took our daughter down with us for a biometrics appointment yesterday and was told that all of her biometric information was transferred to CSC by computer on Sep. 17, 2009. The girl behind the counter showed me the printed information stating this and assured me that a child her age (7 years old) often doesn't even have to do any of it, she actually said that the information from 2007 (AOS) will be used... hopefully she is right !!!!

Wondering now if I will get a refund for my daughters biometric fees .. hmmm ?????

Just kidding, I know it won't happen !!!!

Good luck to all and I do apologize for not getting back yesterday ...

You might consider calling USCIS and use the "address change" option to get a speaking person on the phone to find out Mathew's biometric receipt number so you can check his case status online .. you might also consider asking if a letter was ever sent out ..

I did just that and they said a letter was never sent out and did give me the receipt number to track the case status ..

just a little trick you might try, my wife and daughters applications both had the same receipt date, Sep. 10.. if you get on USCIS and search for the numbers immediately following your wife's BIOMETRIC receipt number and verify the same date of receipt with the same petition type (CR189) then there is a pretty good chance that the first number you come to will be Mathews .. I did this for both AOS and now ROC and it worked both times (my daughters biometric receipt number this time is 13 after my wifes)..

Good Luck !!!!

In and out in about 10 minutes .. $6 to park the car, that comes up to $36 an hour for one car !!! The lot holds about $100 cars .. WOW, I need to start scoping out some property downtown St. Louis for my post retirement employment ... HEHE

Just kidding, it went really fast and smooth as silk .. 1:00 in the afternoon and not a single person waiting ..
