Some Timelines Not Accurate

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi there fellow VJ members. Have some good news to share for some that are waiting for there case updates. I live in the Washington DC area and I had filed my I-485 AOS application from a K-1 Fiance visa in September of this year. In October I got my wifes biometrics done and then the waiting game started. Then in November my online case status updated that our AOS application is now ready to be scheduled for interview. At that time i was expecting a long wait cause considering and assuming I live in the DC area, the DC field office have cases that are being processed from Jan-Feb of this year. But thank god and im so grateful, yesterday morning the status has changed and my wife and I have been given a interview date in January 2017. So from filing in September 2016- January 2017, thats literally 4 months. Half of what the timeline suggests. So thought i share this for some who are firm believers of the timelines on these websites.

Lastly, i have changed jobs from the time I applied so, i was told i just need to take a updated I-864 with me , any other tips or advices I can get i would certainly appreciate. If someone from the Washington DC area who just recently interviewed, what are the chances of getting approved same day and the timeline to actually get the greencard physically. Thank you and good luck to all.
