anyone with a parents AOS case stuck at NBC?

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I read that from August, parent's IR-5 AOS cases not requiring an interview would be kept at NBC, instead of being transferred to CA. Great, I thought, our September case will get processed more quickly. However, looking at various trackers, there is absolutely no approval activity for any of the parents cases filed from August onwards. It still looks like getting an interview at a local office results in much faster approval than interview waived.

Does anybody have any info to share about why these cases are taking so long/when they might be adjudicated?

No idea (sorry). The below is from the USCIS website. I dont' know if I'm interview waivable or not, but I filed on 9/11 and I'm still listed as being with the NBC (received EAD over a month ago). When I look at processing times for the NBC, neither I-485 nor I-130 are listed.

Interview-Waivable Family-Based I-485, Application to Register Permanent Residence or Adjust Status

Interview Waivable cases are family-based I-485s which USCIS has determined can be adjudicated without an interview. In the past, the NBC completed pre-processing of these cases and then transferred them to the California Service Center for adjudication. On Aug. 1, 2012, the NBC started to retain these cases for adjudication.

Package sent to: Chicago Office

Local Office: Saint Paul, MN

Primary Filings: I0-485, I-130, I-765

Date Filed : 11 Sept 2012

NOA Date : 17 Sept 2012

Bio. Appt.. : 12 Oct 2012

EAD in Production: 14 Nov 2012

EAD Received : 24 Nov 2012

Interview Date : 12 February 2013

Approved : 13 February 2013

GC in Production: 19 February 2013

GC Received: 25 February 2013

Petition to Remove Conditions (I-751)

Date of I-751 = 28 Jan 2015

NOA Date = 29 Jan 2015
