Case File and Interview Notice

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I have seen on quite a few boards that an N400 applicant's case file (Life story with USCIS:goofy:) has to be physically present at the local office before any

interview can be scheduled? Can anyone confirm this? This may be a good reason why there is so much wait time between biometrics completion and interview notice.

 

Just curious why they are not triggering the mailing of this so called case file the moment they received the application? So much for government efficiency!!!!!!

I believe only when the interview date is given by the field office, it gets scheduled and then only the case file is sent to the field office.

 

Mailing the file directly to field office does not help processing time in any way.

I did not quite get that. Are you saying the case file being present   doesn't have anything to do with interview scheduling?

Having a case file physically present in the field has nothing to do with the case processing. Your case needs to go through background check and such. Only when the background check is complete and no issues found, you case will he put in “ready for case interview” status.

 

I believe at this point, NBC contacts the field office for the interview date. Depending on the backlog, it could be a few weeks to more than a year before they give the date at which point, the interview will be scheduled. Then at some point later on, the file will be sent to the field office.

My thought was the local office communicates with the local FBI or whatever agency that does the checks.
