Approx 6 Months Delay in AOS for K-1 Visa (lack of funding to DHS?)

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts


I filed for AOS from K-1 visa early Oct 2014. I did my biometrics in mid Jan 2015 and received my EA card in mid-Feb 2015. Today I got a letter from USCIS stating my application is a potential interview waiver case (that I was kinda expecting) and that my case would be delayed for approximately 6 months due to workload factors not related to my case.

My friend who overstayed and got married filed her I-485 a week before me and received her green card two weeks ago.

I find it strange that there is to be a 6 months delay on my case, when I most likely don't need an interview. I'm speculating it has to do with the funding of the Department of Homeland Security. Did anyone else receive a similar notice? Is this normal? I'm not sure if I should go to the closet USCIS office to inquire further.

You can start worrying when you pass the 6months processing timeline. I am sure you will get your approval sooner than the Letter implies. Relax!
