We got our letter after applying for AOS. Now we're waiting for the biometrics date. About how long has it taken everyone to get this letter?

And about how much time do they give you between sending the letter and the actual appt.?

Thanks

I applied a little before you, and as you can see, I still haven't received bio letter. We must have the same ASC - Taylorsville, UT, and I think they're extremely busy for some reason.

If you look at the July fillers thread, there are a few people still waiting for the biometrics letter, mostly in Dallas.

I suggest you make the service request call - to push you in the waiting list (you can do that if 30 days from you NOA1 date have passed, and you still haven't received your bio letter).

Let me know if you get any news. All I could figure out until now was that their appointment scheduling is messed up and/or they might be installing a new system. (or at least that's how it seems to be in Dallas).

After you make your service request, and you get the number for it (they will give you a number to write down), make sure you ask for your call to be escalated to someone with higher clearance. Ask them if they have mailed you a biometrics letter, and you just haven't received it (USPS does that sometimes, and you wanna make sure it wasn't returned to them as "undeliverable"), or you just haven't been scheduled yet. Maybe they could even give you a reason for the delay (they didn't have one for me).

Remember, higher clearance. The first guy you talk to can put in the service requesr (SR) for you, but besides that, he reads off a script, and only has access to the same information you see online.. And he will repeat it over and over again... :bonk:

Good luck!

Wow! Today was exactly 90 days since the date of NOA1 (June 22nd)... That means you are now officially outside processing dates.

Hope you have the infopass in the next few days, they better pull an EAD from where the sun don't shine, and give you a good explanation on what happened :bonk:

I don't think I've seen anyone from L.A. to have their bio late, I didn't think the office was busy... Maybe you got skipped somehow. Lui and Gzel are from L.A. also and I see they got their biometrics..

I also can't tell by your signature if you put in a service request with USCIS or no. If you did, but it didn't produce any results, well.. it doesn't look good for me either :crying:

Hope to hear some good news soon!

Just got my biometrics appointment! i'm going to try and do a walk-in tomorrow.

so less than 10 days after I completed a service request i got my biometrics appointment. There's hope for you :)

Awesome! :thumbs: I'm sure you'll get you EAD approval within days of being fingerprinted, if not even the same day, as some people did.

If you can't walk-in tomorrow, you should try Wednesday, that's usually their lightest day of the week.

I'm still wondering why you had such a delay to get the letter :unsure: Probably they just forgot about you file, and when you put the SR, they dust it off and took care of business :bonk:
