Recommended Posts

Hello there, 

Our status for the AOS shows as follow: 
As of May 7, 2019, we are ready to schedule your Form I-485, Application to Register Permanent Residence or Adjust Status, Receipt Number XXXXXXXXXXXXX, for an interview. We will schedule your interview and send you a notice. Please follow any instructions in the notice. If you move, go to www.uscis.gov/addresschange to give us your new mailing address.


The above has been showing two weeks after we got our biometrics done. Any one has any idea as to how long it may be for an interview date. Any input will be highly appreciated. 

Thanks

That will be based on the processing times of your particular Local Field Office.

"Ready to schedule" usually signifies your I485 has been sent to your LFO to sit in line for an interview. That line up may take a few months or it may take a few years as it depends on your LFO.

If you tell us your LFO, we can show you your estimated processing times.

Our LFO is in Alexandria Virginia where we got our finger printing done.

That wont be your LFO.

Fingerprinting takes place at ASCs not LFOs.

Input your zip code here and tell us what it says:

"Ready to be scheduled for an interview" doesn't really mean much, other than that you just have to wait. And wait and wait. You can be stuck at this status for many, many months or even years depending on your field office.

 

When the status changes to "interview has been scheduled" you can start keeping an eye out for the interview letter to arrive in your mailbox.

Right above that address it says "Virginia - Washington Field Office". That is your local field office. Now that you know which your field office is you can check the processing times for i-485 at that particular office to get an idea how long you'll have to wait.

I'm in the same boat (field office) as OP. Does it really takes 11 months from bio-metrics to the interview???

When I go to their web site, I see this:

 

"

Virginia - Washington Field Office

 

We are expanding our online fee payment system. Starting June 24, 2019, you will no longer be able to pay fees with a money order or cashier’s check at this office. You can still pay with a personal check, debit card, credit card, or a reloadable prepaid credit/debit card.

To process applications faster, we are moving some of our application work to other field offices. Therefore, you might receive a notice (for example, for an interview or a Request for Evidence) that comes from another field office that has not handled your case before. This change does not affect where you will go for your biometric appointment. We will still send you to the closest USCIS application support center. Please follow the instructions in your USCIS notice."
 
I still can't believe it can take 1 to 2 years for the interview. That can't be right.

Nowadays that's normal, yes. Check out other field offices and you see even longer processing times. Yours is far from the worst.
