Hello you all,

I sent in the paperwork for my adjustment of status (came to the states on a K-1 visa) on July 16 and got my receipt #'s on July 23.

I had my Biometrics appointment scheduled for August 14. Everything worked out well. It was pretty fast.

Then, my combo card (travel & work permits) was approved on September 15 and I got the card on Sep. 20.

Haven't heard from the USCIS ever since! According to the USCIS case status page, my case is being processed at the Nebraska Service Center... but the receipt number starts with "MSC". Is that right? It looks a little weird to me, but anyways... I have a few colleagues on Facebook who happen to have their case be processed at the same office (same Nebraska center) and one of them, who sent her paperwork about a month before I did, got her "Potential Waiver Letter" a long,long time ago! And I'm not sure but I think that this other friend of mine who sent hers after I did already got her letter as well! I even went back to the USCIS website to check the processing times, but it doesn't make sense to me. When I tried to check how long the family-based i-485 at the Nebraska Center has been taking, there isn't even an option regarding that one. I can see how long it's taken for employment-based i-485, for refugees and so on but there is NOTHING there regarding family-based cases! oh, I even checked the employment-based processing time (cause it could be taking the same amount of time...) but it says "4 months". It has been over 4 months since my Number Of Action already. i tried to contact someone from the USCIS through their phone number, but couldn't get to speak with a real person! all I could hear was this recorded message. And oh, I tried also to make an appointment with the infopass (I heard they're good at solving problems) but this is what I got:

"

  • You can check current case processing times to get an idea of how long your case should take.
  • If your case has a receipt number, you can check the status.

We offer 4 kinds of appointments for a case that you have already filed. Please choose from the following - Order from Immigration Court - If you were directed to us for processing based on an order from the Immigration Judge. You must bring all documents required in the post order instructions given to you by the court.
Case Processing Appointment - If you received a notice to go to your local office for further case processing.
EAD inquiry appointment - If your I-765 employment authorization application has been pending for more than 90 days.
Case Services follow-up appointment - If it has been over 45 days since you contacted NCSC and have not received a response to your inquiry. You must bring the Service Request ID Number related to your inquiry to the appointment.

"

Don't even know which to choose from. I don't think any of them apply to me.

A little help please? :sleepy::clock:

Hmm that sucks! but apparently sometimes it takes a long time sometimes. at least it says that you're having an interview. how long did it take from your NOA to this email that you got??? good luck!

You're within totally normal processing times. If your status is still showing as acceptance and hasn't changed to "Testing & interview", then it's very likely yours is a waiver case. We received our waiver letter after about 4 months, it's plausible that yours could take a little longer. I would call if you haven't seen anything in the next couple of weeks.

Processing times are only published for I-485s being processed at local field offices, which interview waiver cases usually aren't.

We are in the same boat we filed on 7/19, and still have not received an interview date or a possible interview waiver. The status has been stuck in "Received Fingerprints". We also have the Nebraska Servicing Center. I tried to make an inquiry and the message I got back was that we were in the normal processing time.

We filed Feb 11, received a waiver letter in June, and yesterday (Dec 2) received notifications that our Welcome Notice and card is being mailed to us. I would say you guys are probably on track to receive it "on time". Hope this helps!
