Case ready for interview... since 2.25 months ago

Recommended Posts

We just checked the Case Status page, since we hadn't heard about the status of the I-485 in the mail or via email.  Today, Dec 20, we realised that the case has been ready for the interview since Oct 12!  It says that USCIS will contact us to schedule the interview... Is it strange that we have not received a date yet? (San Francisco office). In any case, happy to see some progress!

If you go to https://egov.uscis.gov/processing-times/ and look up processing times for I-485 at the San Francisco office, you can see the official range they give for processing times for family-based AOS is 17 to 35.5 months. So you probably have a long wait ahead.

What is amazing is that I have friends (a US-Thai married couple) who went through the same office in 2016/17 following the same exact K1 to AOS process, and received the Green Card 3 months after initially filing the I-485 application. I guess times have changed, or they were just very lucky! 😢

Things have slowed down significantly unfortunately. My wife's AOS process took 4 months back in 2015, and that was "normal" then. I doubt you'll have an interview either.
