How long does USCIS take to schedule an interview? AOS case

9 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello!

USCIS just updated! 'Your case is ready to be scheduled for an interview.' :)

Im wondering how long they take to schedule it and if it will be scheduled before my work permit and AD expire. If it does not, can I renew work permit?

 

I filed on March 2017. Work permit and AD were issued on August 2017 and mailed to me on September 2017. Fingerprint was done twice for AOS and work permit.

It can take anywhere from a month to a year - depends on processing times at the local field office. Yes you can renew your work authorization, for free.

I guess I got extremely lucky. Our case status was changed to 'Your case is ready to be scheduled for an interview' sometime middle of September. Yesterday in the mail we received a letter with our interview date: October 25. This is in San Jose.
