PLEASE HELP: I live in Houston, TX. My I-485 family-based adjustment of status was transferred to the California Service Center (CSC) on Sept 10, 2010. My Biometrics were done on Nov 29, 2010. No news since... In the website it still mentions that the case is under initial review. I haven't received an RFE, neither an interview appointment. Basically no news at all. We are two days from February 2011. Is this normal? Should I do something about it? I appreciate any suggestions or comments.

My detailed timeline is as follows:

Aug 12, 2010: Entered US with K1 visa.

Aug 13: Married.

Sept 10: AOS case transferred to the California Service Center.

Sept 13: My AOS case was available on-line for the first time. (EAD and AP cases are still unavailable on-line.)

Sept 17: AOS case was touched. I think it means that it was received at the CSC.

Sept 18: Received hardcopy letter that my AOS case was transferred to the CSC on Sept 10.

Nov 06: AP received! and Biometrics appointment notice received (scheduled for Nov 29).

You will not have an interview since your case is at CSC. They send it there for " faster processing " Nothing to do but wait right now, some people have been waiting quite a while for CSC to finish their AOS papers.

We are in Seattle and we filed for AOS in July 2008 and we were also processed through CSC we did have an interview in December 2008.

At this point your time frame seems perfectly normal and it can take longer and that is normal too.

You NOA letter gives you your legal status EAD gives your the right to work, you are fine.

At the bottom of this page there are instruction as to what happens after filing, there are important tips here, maybe this will be helpful to you?

Also, if you fill in the TIMELINE in your profile...you will be connected to other VJ members that filed around the same time as you, this will help you to see how other similar cases are progressing.

This is incorrect. They MIGHT not have an interview. Almost all cases are transferred to CSC and then every now and then a file is transferred to their local office for interview. Just because it's at CSC doesn't mean absolutely no interview.. it means your chances are good for no interview.

Thanks all for your comments. We might have to move to another state (specifically Arizona). In case we do, we would notify USCIS, would this usually delay a Permanent Residence decision by USCIS? If it does, does it usually significantly dealy the process (let's say more than four months)? I know this might be impossible to answer, but if someone knows a similar case, I would appreciate the information.
