ASC Appt Notice / I751 CRI89

11 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello everybody!..

I will be having my appointment within few days for now to remove the conditions on my GC that's currently on the one year extention after the initial issuance date. What should we expect in this interview? Should we take anything with us beside the notice - I 797C? Plus, we have been overseas since my husband works in the Oil and Gas industry and his US employer transfered him out to the Middle East region.. Will this affect our conditions removal proceedings? and how should we go about it?

 

Thanks much..

Hello,

 

if if this an ASC it sounds like this is just a biometrics appointment. All they will do is have you fill in a form, take your fingerprints, picture, and signature. 10 mins in and out usually. 

 

Cant speak to the other part of your question about working abroad. Although, I do know it is important to ensure you file tax in the US.

Is this an interview? Biometrics? Without filling out your VJ timeline, we don't know what info you need. 

Yes, the fact that you have been overseas might affect your application. I'm not sure whether the "oil and gas industry" is an exception to the rules for residency and the interview, etc.


 

Is your timeline updated?

Yes, probably biometrics, which is when you get your fingerprints and photo taken. Have you done that yet? If not, go ahead and keep the appointment. Your husband does not have to attend that one.

Rudeness, and probably a lot of waiting around, followed by a digital photo and fingerprints being captured.

Expired card, extension letter, state ID, and the biometrics appointment notice. Get used to taking this stuff to lots of appointments.

If you have maintained significant ties to the US, and any overseas time has been (or is) temporary in nature, and you have not stayed out of the US more than six months continuously, then it is unlikely to affect it.

Does this mean no interview and straight 10 years extention? 

 

HAHAHA

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

(no)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Once you have done the biometrics you wait, and wait some more.

You will then get either:

An RFE

An interview notice

An approval notice

You may even get several of these, or some other heap of rubbish which you didn't expect (see my timeline for examples). 

 

Honestly...you filed in May....you have a whole lot more waiting to do.

 

 


CR1 / DCF (London): 2012 / 2013 (4.5 months from I-130 petition to visa in hand)

 

I-751 #1 [Denied]

 

Early May 2015 : I-751 Joint filing package sent fedex next day 09:00am from UK ($lots - thanks). 
May 2015: Notice of receipt/1yr extension received, dated day of receipt. This was forwarded to me outside the US, and no issues re-entering multiple times.
June 2015: Biometrics completed - walk in / argument, stressing proof of imminent travel and multiple prior inconvenient appointments & reschedules.
May 2016: Vermont Service Centre updated to processing May 2015 cases, therefore my case is now classed as outside normal processing time
May 2016: Service request sent (whatever that is) after calling to find out why I am still waiting after 12 months. Unable to tell me anything.
May 2016: Letter received in response, stating processing is on hold due to 'pending security checks' with no other information. Not helpful.
May 2016: (7am) - Infopass appointment for I-551 Stamp in passport.  (8am) - Returned to USCIS office for another I-551 stamp after realizing the dumbass put the expiry stamp as 2015 not 2017. Two entire passport pages wasted. Cheers. 

Oct 2016: Infopass appointment (not at local office). USCIS have sent my file to an overseas office, in a country that neither myself or my spouse have ever resided in. It has sat there untouched for five months. Why? Who knows. Internal query requesting urgent clarification is sent by USCIS officer.  
Oct 2016: An identical 'pending security check'  letter received, addressing precisely none of my or the immigration officers legitimate queries. 
Nov 2016: Infopass appointment: My file is now back in the US and at my local office...no other updates or progress. 
Jan 2017: Notification that an interview has been scheduled at a local office. Bizarrely still no RFE... 
Jan 2017: 2hr wait, then interview terminated before it began, due to moving my ID to another state 2 wks prior. New interview 'in a few months...maybe.'       Informed them that divorce proceedings are underway, but not finalised at this time. 
March 2017: An Interview was scheduled - marked as no-show as they didn't actually send out a notification of interview. FML 
April  2017: Filed an official complaint with the ombudsman, and have requested Senator & Congressman assistance - enough is enough. 
May 2017: Yet another infopass. No updates, interview of further progress. Still no response from Congressperson, Senator, or Ombudsman received. 
June 2017: 68 days after contacting them, the Ombudsman finally contacted USCIS. 'It may take up to 60 days to receive a response'.   
July 2017:  A follow up enquiry sent by Ombudsman to USCIS after receiving no response or action after 45 days. I am Jack's complete lack of surprise. 
August 2017: 60 days has come and gone with no response from USCIS. Contacted the Ombudsman who will contact them AGAIN. 
August 2017: Email from Ombudsman - USCIS have scheduled an interview at the very end of August .  
August 2017: Interview - switched to a (finalised) divorce waiver. Told that decision will be made that afternoon, but no problems foreseen with my case. 
September 2017: Now 4 weeks since interview, my file has not moved from the officers desk, and no decision is showing when I call and speak to a Tier 2.  
September 2017: Request filed for Senator assistance (a different senator - maybe I will get a reply & assistance from this one?). 
October 2017: 37 days since interview....and no decision.  W, and indeed, TF is going on???? 
October 2017: Letter of Denial received - reason given as 'I-751 petition was not properly filed'. Discovered ex-spouse made false allegations to USCIS

I-751 #2 [Pending] 

October 2017: Within 72hrs of receiving denial notice, a new waiver I-751, divorce decree & $680 cheque, sent to Vermont via FedEx overnight 9am priority.  

October 2017: I-797C Receipt/extension letter received, dated day of receipt at VSC 

October 2017: Another I-551 stamp obtained at infopass appointment, as the extension letter is useless with a 2yr card that expired 2.5yrs ago! 

November 2017: Biometrics completed (early walk-in) 

2018: Re-entered US multiple times with second I-751 extension letter & stamp. Quick trip to secondary required to verify, and stamped in as normal

  

N-400 [Pending] 

February 2018: N-400 filed online.  $725 paid to the USCIS paperwork wastage fund

February 2018: Biometrics completed (walk-in)
