Confused about AP Biometrics requirement !

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Ok, so here's the deal....

I am concurrently filing for AP, EAD and AOS

I completed a Bio app for i-765 and i-485 (i recieved one letter for both)4/7/2010

I was not aware however that i needed to get them done for AP (i-131)until today. :bonk:

My case has not been touched since 3/17/2010 but my AOS has been touched many times, the latest was 4/22/2010

My question is should i have recieved a letter or are the USCIS helpdesk people getting confused. :help:

There is no space for AP Bio date on my timeline planner?

so therefore i did not think it odd.

i have been on the phone to the USCIS all morning, and as we speak they are escalating my case to see if they can get my Biometrics taken from my other applications and added to my AP.

Has anyone else had a similar problem or am i just worrying over nothing?

I was planning to leave the country in July to see my family, as i have not seen them since December. :crying:

Do you think i can get it expedited (if it drags on too much) as my sister has cancer?

Any ideas/comments?

Thanks in advance.

Great website BTW. :dance:

You need to make a Infopass appointment. If you have a valid reason to expedite and can support it they can issue the day of the appointment.


Naturalization

3-24-2014 Mailed N-400

Whoever told you that you need biometrics for AP is WRONG. The only reason for biometrics is the EAD and AOS. That's it. So whoever you've been talking to at USCIS (at the least) is a moron.

If you want your AP expedited, as stated, go here: http://infopass.uscis.gov/ and schedule an infopass appointment. Take any evidence you have for the reason for the expedite.

Good luck. Again NO BIOMETRICS NEEDED FOR AP
