How long does it normally take from the time USICS is ready to schedule an interview to receiving the interview notice, and the actual interview itself.  

I have a case ready from USCIS since october 2, 2018.

 

Thanks for the feedback.

That depends entirely on the local field office that your i485 is being processed at.

You can find estimated processin times here if you input i485 and the FO where it is being processed.

Could be a couple months, could be over a year. It depends on the local office, their priorities, and their backlog.

Time from the interview being scheduled to the actual interview date is usually anywhere from ~3-6 weeks.

How do you know what your local office is? I assume it's a different place from where our 765 is being handled (MSC vs my local address)?

Biometrics are completed at a USCIS Application Support Centre (ASC), not a FO.

I765 and I131 are processed at the National Benefits Centre (aka the NBC, aka "MSC"). You're I485 is also sent there initially for processing but when it is "ready to be scheduled for an interview" it will be sent to your local FO. It could sit at your FO for many many months awaiting an interview as that is dependent on how backlogged they are. 

 

You can find your local FO as mentioned above using the link and your zip code and then you can use the link below to check ESTIMATES on processing times for your FO. You simply scroll down to "I485" and choose your local FO location.

For many it's the same address, same building. Meaning same place for biometrics and interview.

We did our Biometrics appointment a few weeks ago and today I just received our interview notice for January 10th.  The interview location is the same location where we had our Biometrics appointment.  I must admit I am shocked, because we are also October AOS filers and it only took a few months to get our interview date.  Now the notice officially says it is an appointment for the 'Initial Interview' - I assume that is the official AOS interview, correct?  I was not sure if they added another interview on us somewhere.

 

Any guesses on how long it will be before we receive my wife's green card?  She has not received her EAD or travel document yet.

Usually the biometrics and interview are at the same building. Some are not (my wife's was in a different section of the same city).

Initial interview is correct. In most cases, it's the only interview as well. Some cases go through multiple interviews before reaching a decision.

Your office appears to be one of the exceptions to the long wait rule.Lucky.

You will likely get the green card before they process an EAD or AP. If so, no need for those documents anyway.

How long it takes form interview approval varies, but if they have everything they need to make a decision after the interview, it could be days to weeks. Then add in a week or 2 for the green card to be mailed, although it could take longer.
