When I check on the USCIS status check site it says his I-485 was accepted and is ready to be scheduled for an interview and a letter will arrive with instructions. That was a month ago. I'm checking the mail every day but no letter. Worried that it's gotten lost. Is this normal??? I expected to receive a letter with an interview date within a few days of that status update.

Ready to be scheduled is not the same as having the interview scheduled. It means that the case is in line for when slots open.

it can take a while before it is in fact scheduled and that’s when you’ll get a notice to appear for interview by mail.

check processing times for your local field office

FYI - you can find the field office for your area here: https://www.uscis.gov/about-us/find-uscis-office/field-offices (search by zip code)

and then look up I-485 processing times for that office here: https://egov.uscis.gov/processing-times/

 

The Norfolk, VA office lists an 8 - 17.5 month range for family-based AOS. Many AOS from K-1 applications do come in before the "minimum" for the field office, but 8 months from May 2019 would put you into 2020.


K-1                             AOS
NOA1 Notice Date: 2018-05-31    NOA1 Notice Date: 2019-04-11
NOA2 Date: 2018-11-16           Biometrics Date: 2019-05-10

Thanks, Dave. It's very difficult for him not to be able to work and the time frame for that is in December. He's always been independent; the breadwinner. :)

On the plus side, at least in theory EAD and AP processing times have gone down (at least, they're still saying 2.5 to 5 months at NBC, and after a week, that's hopefully not a mistake).

I checked the Norfolk site just now. Hopefully things will start moving along. :) "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."

Yes, our EAD and AP processing times are looking better by a few weeks!
