Hi all! 

 

I’m new to VJ. I appreciate everyone’s  help here :) 

 

I obtained my GC based on asylum. I submited my N400 in March 2018 and had my biometrics done soon after that. In September 2018, I received a letter from USCIS that my IV is scheduled in November 2018. Upon arrival to the field office, I was told that my IV was canceled because my file was not there. I was surprised that I had not been informed about the cancellation. I received another notice that my IV was rescheduled 6 weeks later. However, it got canceled again the day before the IV because of the same reason: they didn’t have my file. After taking to level 2 immigration office over the phone, I was told that my file is at (asylum center) in an X state (not my state) where my asylum lawyer is based. No updates since then. It’s been almost 6 weeks. I checked with the lawyer and he told me that nothing is wrong and this can happen. 

 

Any similar experiences? I appreciate your feedback and help!

When you spoke to the L2 officer, did he mention anything about now having your file transferred from the other State to the one you are in?

He said the field office requested my file to be transferred but still pending. I don’t know why it ended up being there to begin with.

Possible reason is that it's a review of your asylum case, as part of the overall adjudication for your N400 (they tend to review how one initially received a GC before approving Naturalization).  Hopefully it will be transferred back to your field office soon for your next scheduled interview.

Thank you. I hope so. I hope others can share with us their experience as well.
