How to Estimate the Date You Will Receive Your AOS Card in Production Notice

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

If you filed for AOS and are waiting patiently, I have some data that will help ease your suffering. How would you like to be able to get some sense of when your card will be completed?!

I estimated mine within 1 day!

I will show you how.

Step 1 - Go to https://egov.uscis.gov/cris/Dashboard/CaseStatus.do (see screenshot 1)

Step 2 - See the processing times box at the bottom of screenshot #1? ---IGNORE IT!!!

Step 3 - See the blue text that says "Check Processing Times" to the left of the box where you put in your case number from screenshot 1? Click It!!

(Note: You are now on https://egov.uscis.gov/cris/processTimesDisplayInit.do)

Step 4 - See where it says Field Office Processing Times on the bottom? (screenshot 2) I put Orlando office in it. Put your local office in it. (NOTE: Even if you received the interview waiver letter that states your application is being processed in a central facility. Per discussion with USCIS you still use the local office processing times. It proved right for us by the way.)

Step 5 -

OK, I am getting a problem attaching the files. Thus I will continue in the next post with screenshot 2.

Well now I see there is a limit on the size and number of attachments. If the administrator will give me more space I will finish the post.

Step 4 - See where it says Field Office Processing Times on the bottom? (screenshot 2) I put Orlando office in it. Put your local office in it. (NOTE: Even if you received the interview waiver letter that states your application is being processed in a central facility.

Step 1 - Go to https://egov.uscis.g...d/CaseStatus.do (see screenshot 1)

Step 2 - See the processing times box at the bottom of screenshot #1? ---IGNORE IT!!!

Step 3 - See the blue text that says "Check Processing Times" to the left of the box where you put in your case number from screenshot 1? Click It!!

(Note: You are now on https://egov.uscis.g...DisplayInit.do)

Step 4 - See where it says Field Office Processing Times on the bottom? (screenshot 2) I put Orlando office in it. Put your local office in it and CLICK on Field Processing Dates.

(NOTE: Even if you received the interview waiver letter that states your application is being processed in a central facility. Per discussion with USCIS you still use the local office processing times. It proved right for us by the way.)

(NOTE: you are now on https://egov.uscis.gov/cris/processingTimesDisplay.do)

(this would have been screenshot 3)

Step 5 - There were three dates on there the date I tried this.

1) June 30, 2014 - this date tells you that the data found on this page relate to information RECEIVED by the USCIS before June 30, 2014. (e.g. If you filed on November 1, 2013 then the data on this page DO relate to your application. If you filed on July 5, 2014 then the data on the page DO NOT relate to your application yet.

2) August 7, 2014 - this date tells you the USCIS last updated the page on August 7, 2014. (They update monthly per discussion with the USCIS)

3) November 11, 2013 - this is the date your local field office (or the central office processing on its behalf - in the event you got an interview waiver letter) was processing as of August 7, 2014.

Thus, on Monday, August 11, 2014 I wanted to know when my AOS application received by the USICS on November 21, 2013, with an interview waiver letter stating my case would be processed by the central facility instead of my local (Orlando) field office in late Feb 2014.

This is how you do it.

Step 6 - Compute the number of days from November 11, 2013 (the date of the cases the USCIS was working on as of August 7, 2014) until your AOS application date. In my case the date was November 21, 2013. Thus the difference was 10 days.

Step 7 - Deduct any weekends between the two dates. In my case there were two weekend days, Saturday, 11/16/13 and Sunday, 11/17/13. Thus, 10 - 8 = 2.

Step 8 - Compute the difference between the day you run the calculation (in my example Monday, 8/11/14) and the date the page was last updated by the USCIS (in this example 8/7/14). 11 - 7 = 4 days.

Step 9 - It should have taken 10 days per Step 6 to go from 11/11/13 to 11/21/13. But there was a weekend so it should only take 8 days (per Step 7). But 4 days had already past, since the data was from 8/7/14 and it was now 8/11/14 (per Step 8). Thus we are now at 8 - 4 = 4 days. BUT now we need to think weekends on our side from 8/11/14 to the final date. There are no weekends from 8/11/14 to 8/14/14. If there were you add them here.

At any rate I estimated Thursday, 8/14/14. My case status updated on 8/15/14 to Card in Production. But then changed to 8/18/14 (Monday for some reason). But this is an awesome way to estimate your dates. The farther out you go the less accurate as we are assuming 1 day of processing moves 1 day of cases which as we know can be over or underestimating things.

ENJOY!!!!

Tell me if this helped you.
