Waiting for Biometrics

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

As in my signature, my wife filed AOS/EAD/AP together at the National Benefits Center (Chicago Lockbox) on Feb 9th and she got a NOA1 of Feb 15, 2012 and a priority date of Feb 13, 2012.

We live in NYC so I am guessing the ASC is NYC center at Varick Street in Manhattan for the biometrics appointment.

There hasn't been kind of movement on our AOS (it is still showing that its in the Acceptance stage). I would think that it should atleast be in the "Initial Review." Is this normal?

Also, I checked the NYC service center and it shows the current processing date of June 11, 2011. Is this an accurate measure of their processing? Does this apply for the entire AOS processing and Biometrics appointment as well? I don't expect this process to drag more than 3-4 months. Is it normal to expect things to move quickly in this process?

Thanks,

Chigs

The priority date has no meaning.

You filed this month - most biometrics appointments show up after 1 month.

You need to be patient as most AOS applications are taking quite a few months lately. It is not normal to expect quick processing for AOS or any other part of the process. Online case status is rarely accurate unless they are notifying you of an approval. Many online case status's have never changed or updated until they were approved - some not even when they were approved.

Your I-129f was approved in 5 days from your NOA1 date.

Your interview took 67 days from your I-129F NOA1 date.

AOS was approved in 2 months and 8 days without interview.

ROC was approved in 3 months and 2 days without interview.

New York City is backed up now, waiting time is more than 6 months so patience is needed. Good luck.

You are well within the timeframe. 90 days is standard for EAD. Nothing to be concerned with at this point. And like the others say, with this process, it really is patience that wins through. Easier said than done I know. I didn't know NY is backed up. This may or may not be true. If it is, I was very lucky. Good luck.
