Anyone have any idea what this actually means? I haven't requested a name change or updated any info with USCIS since my biometrics appointment in March..... I'm confused

I think that I have seen that before. I believe that they are working on your application.... I would say that any USCIS action at this stage of the process is better then no action at all. ....;)

As the letter states, they have begun your initial review by starting your background checks. 

 

Okay - I was just a bit freaked out by the "updated the name on your form"

Yeah - I'm still getting used to the cryptic way USCIS communicate with people!

 

Thanks

That's just the name of the status and how they refer to that step at USCIS. The explanation will always be in the body of the email. Make sure you read them fully before panicking.

thanks - I will from now on, I just don't get many updates and so I'm not used to the way they are worded.

By any chance does this mean they are processing the EAD/AP now? As I haven't received an update on those. Or are they just checking the AOS application and the EAD/AP is completely separate?

Actually the way I read it, the note is specifically to say that the name on I-485 was updated? Maybe original I-485 had it mispelled or they put maiden name instead of married name, and uscis caught it and fixed it? 

I've got notes similar to that when I submitted "fix typographic error" requests.

I485, I765 and I131 are all separate processes. 

The email indicates they are starting the security checks for your I485.

I765 takes 6.5 to 8.5 months currently at the NBC.

I131 takes 6 to 8 currently at the NBC.

I485 processing times are dependent on your local field office and how fast or slow they are to schedule interviews. Some take 4, 5, or 6 months while some take 1 to 2 years.

I haven't changed my name ever..... and haven't submitted anything to fix any errors.... I'm going to check the document I sent USCIS and see if I misspelled anything throughout the packet...

okay - So I just rechecked the pack i sent, I think I spelt my own name wrong on the first page.... then correctly throughout the rest of the document - I put one "o" in my surname when it should be "oo" I have no idea why i didn't spot that......

 

Hopefully they see the correct spelling from my K1 visa process and the copy of my passport and made that correction for me. 

 

Thanks for the help and advice.... apparently I need to learn how to spell my own name now......

This is not always about you. But at some steps they may simply put it wrong or even in wrong order and then recheck and update according to other more official documents (like passport).

 

i wouldn’t worry much, this is pretty common. More common on other petitions such as I-129f but it’s common.

 

Edit: saw you got your answer after I wrote :) glad it resolved

I did a similar thing when I applied to be a notary in NY.  I took the exam in my maiden name.  I was so nervous I completely gapped on that until I got the result slip back to send in the application.  Then I filled the application out in my married name, and had to send a letter and my marriage certificate, and a name affidavit.  Ugh.  We all have those moments - at least they are mostly inconsequential. :)
