Helllloooo so wonderful to be back after a 90 day break :D Filed on 9/28/19 got the text messages of acceptance with our case numbers tonight. Quick question- general timeframe for biometrics? Will this be happening in less than 30 days? We are going out of state for my birthday and I would hate for one appointment to cancel an entire vacation (in 6 weeks).

@CaliNY You should also file a copy of your marriage certificate with the two other forms I-131 and the I-765. I know the VJ example does not say this but this is a wise move as people have gotten a RFE for sending in only one copy. Remember the two forms are processed separately from the I-485 and could thus net you a RFE for not attaching a marriage certificate if for nothing else to support the name change. Also your application must be postmarked BEFORE or on October 14th to avoid the expanded changes and the new I-944 form.

OK SO THE ORIGINAL MARRIAGE CERTIFICATE I SHOULD MAKE TWO COPIES AND ATTACH IT TO THE OTHER TWO FORMS?

Ah fudge, I've been working on my application for weeks and didn't include copies of the marriage certificate with the I-131 and I-765.

Usually biometrics appointment is in about a month, but you never know for sure. However, you most likely will receive the invitation letter a way before, so you can try to do your biometrics earlier (just walk in) :)

Hi all! Is the USCIS 'Submitted date' the same as the AOS 'filed date?' Just wondering so that I'd know whether to follow the September or October filers thread. LOL. We mailed our AOS package on September 25, 2019; USCIS website shows the submitted date as October 1st.
