October 2011 filer - No GC yet

8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

October 31, 2011, our application to adjust status wasreceived at the proper lockbox. On November 19, 2011, a Notice of Action wassent to us that our petition was transferred to the California Service Center “inorder to speed up processing.” Biometrics was completed and we received theEAD/AP combo early January 2012. We have not received an RFE.

I checked processing times for CSC for the AOS. Am I notreading it right? Does it list AOS for FAMILY based requests? I only see forwork-based applications and it says March 2011.

Also, the EAD/AP combination is only valid until 12/31/2012.So, I’m guessing we need to apply for a renewal? If so, how early should thatbe done?

I’m starting to get a little panicky. Not sure what to donow. Any tips or suggestions?

Thank you!

Thank you!

I also submitted mine in October 2011. I got my green card a couple of months ago after a lot of phone calls, emails and letters. The website doesn't list family-based AOS processing times, but based on VJ members it is currently taking 4-6 months from date of TRANSFER to CSC. You should immediately contact USCIS to submit a service request, and find out if an RFE was sent. You should also contact your representative. This has proven far more effective than a service request. Might as well try the ombudsman as well.

Thank you! A month or so ago we did contact USCIS and they said that everything was okay, that there were no RFE's and that we just needed to wait. We will contact them again. Do we contact our Senator or House of Representative, both, or does it matter?Thanks again!

Try both. Go with whoever gets back to you faster. Your representatives should have websites with instructions on how to ask for help in immigration cases (for mine it was listed under "constituent services"). They will have a form that you fill out and sign to give them permission to contact USCIS on their behalf.

If they successfully request that USCIS pull your file, you should get action within a few days.

I have talked to the senator's office. They were told that our file was "with an officer." I will be calling my contact person at the senator's office in a few days or next week to follow up if we haven't heard anything. Thank you for your advice. I should have done it much earlier in the process. We'll see what happens now. Thanks again!

Congratulations! Almost a year since you applied, wow, but I'm glad it's on it's way. Now you can take a break from USCIS for a while.
