No words from USCIS about my GC

15 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi guys!

I've been pretty anxious about my currently situation and would like to see if someone who's going through the same problem could share your experience with me.

I sent my AOS package last August 31 and 15 days later I got the NOA1. I also had my biometrics appointment scheduled for October 11. On November 18 I received an email that my case had been transferred to an office in California in order to speed the process. 15 days later I got my EAD and since then I didn't hear a word from them.

It's been more than 5 months since I started the process and I thought I would be with my GC already by this time of the year. I've been planning my trip back to Brazil but not being able to purchase the tickets since I am not sure when I am gonna get it. I've checked the time line and according to that, the process usually takes 4 months. But I don't know if this four months should be counted by the moment you sent your package or when they had it transferred to the other office in CA.

Any thoughts, comments or advice will be truly appreciated!

Unfortunately, I don't have an AP. When we were filling the paperwork we thought that the AP could only be issued if you had any emergency or proof that you really needed to leave the country before having your GC. It was our mistake. :-/

It's been more like 6 months to AOS lately. Especially if your file gets transferred to your local USCIS office and they're backlogged. Or if you get a RFE or an interview. You can make an Infopass appointment, but there is no way to tell when you GC will be granted. It is unwise to make any travel plans until then since you don't have AP.

try to call USCIS. i called them to inquire about the timeframe for CSC transfer (AOS based on family adjustment) since there's no processing time posted for that on the website (except for employment-based adjustment). i filed on October. the officer counted 6 months from the receipt date of USCIS.

Same here, filed in september, CSC transfer, still waiting. We didn't file AP too, I expected to get GC as all people do in 4 month. We're stuck. We made an appointment to Infopass and talked to officer there. Waste of time, no help. Politely smiting he said that we're just fine and if we want we can make inquiry about our case we should call to CSC. We did, they deny to make inquiry because our time is not expired yet. But I really really need to go back to Russia before April. Really hate them (((

yeah, I tried to call them and no way to talk to an agent. According to the phone system the time frame to have our AOS processed is 180 days AFTER the transfer. Which means we have to wait until the end of April, at least in my case, to open a request. I definitely share your anger!!!!

you can talk to an agent by not pressing anything on the menu, it will think you have a rotary phone then you'll get an agent on the other line. sometimes i just choose english and then go through the options where you choose do not have or forgot case #.

We talked to the agent from USCIS, they said our case transferred to Salt Lake City and we should get something from them within 30 days. No information changed on their site, and we don't know if we're going to have an interview. Looks like we're waiting again. But it's better than nothing. You should call them too.

My husband said to talk to agent you follow the instructions, to check your status and after you tell your case number, you press number 3 (report a problem) so you'll talk to agent.

Thanks for the tip! I finally talked to an agent and according to her the CSC Office is processing the cases from August 25th. My receipt date is September 14th, so I guess I will hear from them soon, I hope!
