after filing AOS

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone. my question is for those who's already been through it. what is next after filing AOS? when do we go for biometrics and how they will contact us? by mail or by phone? will really appreciate your help

Welcome to the forum.

After filing the AOS packet, we received email/SMS notification of application(s) acceptance. (We included G-1145.) USCIS sent us I-797s acknowledging receipt of our applications shortly afterwards. In our recent case, USCIS also sent us appointment notices for the biometrics. This steps are described in the forum's AOS GUIDES, found at the top of the forum page.

Good luck on your journey.

Completed: K1/K2 (271 days) - AOS/EAD/AP (134 days) - ROC (279 days)

You will get your NOA's in the mail via address used on the forms.

You will also receive instructions on where and when to go for your biometrics.

If you would fill in your timeline, you will get some approximate dates of when to expect your EAD/AP approval.

Biometrics appointment is nextafter you have received the NOA1 hardcopies and the biometrics appointment letter(you have to bring that with you to the appointment).

USCIS doesn't contact you through phone but if they did, I'd ask to have them send it to me in writing. You most likely will get an email update(if you either signed up on their webpage, or submitted the g1145), otherwise USCIS corresponds through mail.

Check your status once in a while so you know you're not missing out on anything. You can also call USCIS to hear the last action taken. If you have submitted both i485, i765 and i131 you have to check each case number.
