250+ days since biometrics + COA, interview notice not received?

Hi all,


I received I-485 NOA on 12/03/18 and we did biometrics on 12/27/18 and we've been waiting for notice of interview.

We moved once and I filed a change of address with USPS and USCIS right away.

It has been 250+ days since original NOA, when I look up the case number online it says the below:



As of May 10, 2019, we are ready to schedule your Form I-485, Application to Register Permanent Residence or Adjust Status, Receipt Number MSCXXXXXXXXXX, 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.


Visajourney timelines estimate for my local field office "Avg. Days btw Biometrics and Interview (if interview required)" is 260, which is right around the corner.

Does this mean that we may not have received the notice of interview scheduling, or maybe the timelines are running long and I should wait to see if interview notice shows up for another 30 days?

Any input is greatly appreciated, thank you!

VisaJourney does not post a standard deviation along with the averages, so the thing to remember about an average processing time is that some people will take more time and some less. But there aren't any official guarantees, and you likely won't get any non-form response from USCIS until you're officially out of normal processing times for your field office.

If you input your zip code here and tell me what it says, I can show you the actual estimated processing times of your Local Field Office as that's really the only statistics you can go by.




Your timeline is LFO processing times dependent and Ready to Schedule doesnt mean much.
