My I-485 Case Is Ready To Be Scheduled For An Interview

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hey all!

I did biometrics July 21st. I checked online 2 weeks later out of curiosity (The online system is so slow) and saw "As of July 28, 2015 Your Case is ready to be scheduled for an interview" We will schedule your interview and send you a notice."

Does any one know how long this part takes? Could I get EAD before interview?

I have a job lined up and literally cannot wait to work!!

Thank you in advance

Does any one know how long this part takes? It means that the the interview will be the next step, however it could be anytime or even weeks from now, there is no specific time, you will receive a letter with your interview appointment date.

Could I get EAD before interview? If you applied for you EAD when you submitted your AOS packet you should receive it approximately 90 days from when they received the packet.
