I've seen many filers waiting about one month after biometrics to hear anything, some more like 5-6 weeks. I wouldn't worry yet. I think two weeks would be very fast.

We just did our biometrics yesterday and I'm not really expecting to hear anything for 4-5 weeks. Would be nice to get an early surprise, but I'm not holding my breath!

There is no set time to receive the EAD after biometrics. he EAD will be received in about 2 to 3 months after filing. How long it is after your biometrics appointment will vary.

~ Moved from AOS from Family Based main forum to Progress Reports sub-forum - topic is case status ~
