AOS-Atlanta Field Office applicants

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I'm just hoping to hear from others on here that have gone through the AOS process with the Atlanta, GA field office. How long did it take to get an interview after your status changed to "ready to be scheduled for interview"? We filed August 13th, 2018 and got our NOA not long after. It just changed last week to ready to be scheduled and after reading I have figured out that's not such a great sign. It just means they've sent our file to our local field office. What was your experience with this office? How long after the interview did it take to finally get your green card? I know I have to be patient and wait my turn. I'm just psyching myself out lately. My husband still hasn't got his EAD/AP yet so trying to be patient with that as well.

I’m also an Atlanta filer . My pd is July 06 2018. I got my ead in October and I’m now waiting for the interview. Atlanta has the least number of people active on this website being one the busiest field offices . There is no one to compare your case with to have a fair idea of how long the waiting period is gonna be . I hope more ATLANTA filers comment on this thread. LoL

Atlanta filer here; I have a full timeline so you can see it there. 

 

Applied for AOS September 2017, and received greencard October 2018 (so over a year).

 

There are at least three others at the Atlanta office who received their greencard in the past year, as I have messaged them and received a reply.

 

One person somehow accidentally got their greencard after a few months, but all the others are around a year.

This makes the visajourney timeline a little bit unreliable (it stated 220-250 days of waiting time for Atlanta field office between filing and interview date but it is actually around a year); this person who had a very early date, has inadvertently pulled down the average processing time a lot (which is how averages work, of course, and is not their fault).

 

 

Edit: received AOS and EAD combo card at around 3 months in, and received an updated AOS, but NOT an updated EAD for some reason. I believe that asking for a second EAD seems to trigger the interview thing, but there is no way to know for sure. I would definitely apply for your renewal as fast as you are allowed.

In addition, you can filter the processing times on Field Office: Atlanta, and add K1 as reason, to see a better result for processing times.

 

I have done this for you, and using this link should work to see a list of users who have filed for AOS from K1 in Atlanta field office: https://www.visajourney.com/timeline/aoslist.php?vtype=1&op8=Atlanta+GA&interview=&xfr=&op1=d&op2=&op3=&op4=1&op5=5%2C6%2C8%2C9%2C10%2C11&cfl=

 

You can order the people on decision, filed time, NOA time, interview date, etc.

 

You can also click on "Atlanta GA" to the left (below the forum pictures of a member) to see everyone who filed at Atlanta for some reason. This might be useful if you have trouble filtering the processing times on field office and reason for AOS

 

 

Edit: They set it to ready to be scheduled from a little after the biometrics, but it meant nothing in reality. You can find exact dates and experiences when you click on my name and look at my replies to posts, or look in the September 2017 filers (I think I also accidentally answered in the September 2018 topic). My experience was good, but it all took a long time to get the interview.

 

I found the link to my experience:

Thank you for your reply. I honestly (in reality) figured it was going to be next September when we get our interview and I'm hoping we have the green card by next Halloween. I just wish they would hurry up with the EAD/AP. I'm the only one supporting us at the moment plus my daughter from a previous marriage and our daughter together. He's going crazy I know he feels useless right now but we're just trying to patiently wait and do the legal right thing. It's a horrible time of year being Christmas season and one income. Hopefully he will get it very soon.

 

*ADDED* 

I don't mind waiting once he has his EAD. I just hope we get a knowledgeable officer for our interview that is polite and won't take forever to grant the green card after interview.
