RFE to Interview wait

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi.

I have a query about wait times.

on the 15th of november USCIS recieved our RFE and are assuming the next step is the interview, but it has been a month and we haven't heard anything back. I checked our status for our I-485 on the USCIS website and it says they will contact us. but how long does this usually take? it is making me nervous!

how long did it take for you guys?

It depends on how backed up the local office is.

Dallas seems to be under the hammer a little right now, which probably explains why you're still waiting to hear something.

Oh no!! thats insane on the site where I can check my status it says..

We will notify you by mail when we make a decision or if we need something from you. You should expect to receive a written decision or written update within 60 days of the date we received your response unless fingerprint processing or an interview are standard parts of case processing and have not yet been completed, in which case you can use the processing time information on our website to estimate when this case will be done.

Fingerprinting is done, just not interview, so the 60 days doesnt apply, and on the processing times table it says 12, feburary, 2013.. which is something about the last one they did.. I struggle to understand the way they explain things. I really hope its not months!

I think its about time you call USCIS. 60 days is a very reasonable time. During the RFE your application is on hold and its only processed again when you reply to the RFE. so start counting from the day they received the RFE and act based on that.
