I 131 application question

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

when we sent our AOS, i785 and i131 we mailed everything together to the Chicago Il po box. so when i check the status of the 785 and 131 applications do i search the current processing times under "chicago il district office" ? our AOS was redirected to California Service Center.

the i131 under chicago il says they are working on reciepts from February 17, 2006

the 131 i was told takes no more than 90 days. the processing time for the AOS is less than the travel document. so is this just the current case they are working on that might just so happen to have some problems maybe, or is this look like a 7 month process time?

I just spoke to someone at USCIS today and asked her a similar question: basically, whether I should be checking Chicago or California processing times to track the dates for AP and she told me I should be looking at my local office, i.e., Los Angeles and not Chicago.

I hope this is right!

All marriage based APs (I-131) are processed in Missouri (Missouri Service Center, National Benefits Center). The local offices don't issue APs.

TO check how long an AP takes, follow this link https://egov.immigration.gov/cris/jsps/NBCprocesstimes.jsp? .

Even though the NOA states that processing takes 60 to 90 days, they actually need longer. September 19th they worked on AP applications with NOA date June 10th.....

It is super frustrating, but there is nothing we can do.

Good luck.
