Hey folks! I'm looking for anyone who may have had an experience doing a walk-in for their biometrics at the Orlando, FL office. I'm trying my hardest not to reschedule my appointment, but on the day of the appt I am scheduled to work a 12 hour shift and the appt time is 3pm. If anyone has had an experience (good or bad) doing a walk-in for biometrics at this location please let me know. Please also include what time you went to the office as I hear that also often makes a difference.

Thanks for all your help!

You would be better of doing a shift swap. Sometimes places will let you come earlier than your appointment time but not all accept walk-ins. Rescheduling the biometrics is far more dangerous than changing your shift at work.

I am curious though. Are you the USC? The USC doesn't need to attend the biometrics appointment. If you're the immigrant your timeline says K1... you wouldn't have work permission yet because you haven't done biometrics... so you'd be working illegally.

Unfortunately that's not an option -- I'm working 9am to 9am. There would be no way to get it done that day. I'm aware not all accept walk-ins which is why I was trying to see if anyone had a successful experience at this location -- allowing me to get the bio done without rescheduling.

I am the USC so I know I'm not required to be at the appt; However, my husband does not drive so idk how he would reach there. Also, I'm not sure where my timeline says K-1.... from what I see it has all been updated to show that we are in AOS processing.

Edited to add: Okay... I understand your last sentence. Yes, we are adjusting status from K-1. No, my husband is not working. There are more compound reasons why we cant go that day and I understand there is greater risk with changing the date. That's why I'm trying to see if anyone has had a successful time walking in. It's either go early or reschedule. Those are the only two options as I will not make the date pass.

Your profile status says AOS processing yes, but you're AOSing from a K1, that is what I was referring to. Your timeline shows your K1 process and now your AOS.

Do you have friends or family members that would drive him?

I should mention I did a walk in in 2010 in Des Moines, I've since been advised they don't accept them anymore. So some info might be "expired" info. Apparently more and more are NOT allowing walk-ins... I don't know why.. it doesn't hurt them :S

Good luck figuring it out!
