Interview already within 45 days of Biometrics... Make sense?

8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

We filed I-485, I-130, I-765 all on Nov 24.

12/1/14 - NOA1

12/23/14 - Biometrics

01/06/15- Notice for I-485 interview to be held on 02/10/15 via email. Letter on the way.

The biometrics seems to be in line with other time lines but the interview seems very early compared to some other time lines I have seen.

Is this normal or am I looking at inaccurate information?

It happens sometimes. My wife had her greencard in hand within 90 days of her NOA-1.

I thought you were going to say they process senior citizens quickly . . . before one of them passes away!!!

As I said in your other thread, Congratulations to Maxx and spouse.

Maxx, mind answering the question that Mayfield and I asked: Which service center processed your AOS packet?
