Does anyone know if a fingerprint is supposed to be taken for the green card at the time of AOS interview? This was NOT done at our interview in St. Louis on October 19th, 2005 and I am starting to suspect that this is why my wife has no card yet. Repeated calls to the INS at the 800 number does us no good either. They promise to get back to us within 30 days and we hear nothing. Is it possible that our paperwork is simply setting because they failed to get a print? We got the letter saying she was granted conditional permanent resisdence and we both signed some paper. She also got her passport stamped at that time.

Maybe we are worried for no reason. We know a Canadian lady who had an attorney and it took 1 year and 3 months for her green card.

Any help here is greatly appreciated. Many thanks.

No fingerprints are taken at the time of the interview. All the fingerprints should have been done during your biometrics appointments before the interview date.

Sorry to hear about your card. It must be something else slowing down it's arrival. Good luck in getting to the bottom of this and receiving it soon!

I had fingerprints taken at my interview but that couldve been because my AOS bios were taken long before I got my interview. At the interview I signed a signature card and the officer took my index finger prints.

Good thing you have the stamp at least.

We didn't get a stamp at the interview. Two days later we were sent a notice to have my wife's biometrics redone because they weren't in the computer for some reason. That was last week and so far the case hasn't been updated.

Good luck getting your situation resolved.

They need a fingerprint of your index finger for your green card. It has to be on a seperate form to the biometrics prints - an I-89. If you have been approved, they need to provide your print on this document to create the actual green card and it is done at the conclusion of the interview. They did this with both myself and my daughter. They also had to have a new one when I got my 10 year green card - another print on the I-89 to get the card produced.

Make an INFOPASS appointment - they can do it at the counter, if they didn't get it at the time of your interview/approval.

Normally biometrics are taken prior to the interview even though I have seen some posts where they were taken afterwards. Maybe you should try to get your elected representative involved, sounds like the USCIS is giving you the run-around. Good luck

I am not sure if you ever got a biometrics appointment or not? In our case the biometrics appointment was 10 days after the interview but the interviewing officer orderd it for the same day and we got it done. We do still have to wait for the approval though (we were told 3 or 4 weeks.) In our case when I went for an infopass appointment to try and get a biometrics scheduled - they wouldn't do it. (This was in Denver, Colorado.) Good Luck
