I wasn't sure where to ask this question, but since it's about AOS I decided to post it here.

I don't know much about asylum, but I have a friend who was granted asylum and submitted the AOS (I-485) about 2 years ago. However he hasn't received his green card yet. Is this normal? I understand most AOS cases take a few months. But how about AOS cases from asylum? Do they take longer? Thanks in advance!

Has your friend ever made an info pass appointment to find out whats going on with the case or called them?

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.

I'm not quite sure, but he says that when he checks his case online it still shows something like "in process".

ETA: I wonder if this long wait is common for asylum AOS or not at all.

Yes, asylum takes a long time.

Thank you! I understand the asylum process is long and complex. But once asylum has been granted, how long does AOS usually take?

According to USCIS Processing Times page (https://egov.uscis.gov/cris/processTimesDisplayInit.do) the times for "I-485 - Application to Register Permanent Residence or to Adjust Status - Based on grant of asylum more than 1 year ago" are:

Nebraska: 4 Months

Texas: September 2, 2011

Vermont: 4 Months

So it shouldn't usually take 2 years, right?

Nebraska, Texas and Vermont do not process AOS. AOS is processed by the National Benefits Center in Missouri.

Really your friend needs to STOP looking at the online case status. That thing is never correct. Your friend needs to book an info pass right away and go speak to someone - see whats going on with the case. Or they need to call USCIS and put in a service request on their case to find out whats going on.

If they have done nothing but check the online status for 2 years they could have problems with their case and not even know about it.

Oh I see, thanks for sharing that. So why would they say "I-485 - Application to Register Permanent Residence or to Adjust Status - Based on grant of asylum more than 1 year ago" in the page for Nebraska, Texas and Vermont centers? So confusing.

I will tell him to do that asap. Thank you so much for all the info!

So, just to double-check, 2 years is not usual, even when doing AOS from asylum status, right?

Thank you for the clarification myafi1985. I was getting all confused.

I have some friends that are going through the same thing and still have not received their green card! and it has been 2 years for them also :(:wacko:

Another similar case! Have they tried calling or doing an infopass? How could we know if this wait is common or not?
