We just got approved this morning at the San Bernardino field office. The process since mailing it out took 3 months and a week! yay! She'll get her card in the following weeks!

Very nice! At the San Fernando valley location, an info pass person told me seven months.

It depends. You can't go by it taking 3 months if you end up without and interview. AOS with interviews roughly takes half the time of what AOS without an interview takes. There's no way of knowing until after you've mailed the AOS. Usually a little while after you receive NOA1 hardcopies and you've gone to your biometrics appointment is the time they'll send you a letter saying if your case was transferred to California SC. California Service Center = no interview. On rare occasions, the case sits at CSC and then goes to a local office for an interview. If you want a speedy process, hope to have your case sent to a local office. As I mentioned, you don't have a say in where your case ends up. I(we) didn't have an interview and AOS took 7 months.

Good luck!

Thank you and congrats to you. Hope those people who have cases pending won't wait too long. I am located in Orange County and the Santa Ana field office processing time online states 4 months. Hope it's less!!!

We mailed our packet on 10/23/12, I-797C receipt dated 10/29/12. We have our interview in Santa Ana on 1/15/13, so roughly two and half months for us. Good luck!

Like our signature block portrays, it took us 105 days for the AOS process. It is a relief to not have to deal with, or think about, USCIS for 21 months! :thumbs:

You are almost there!!!! :yes:
