Received I-797C for 10-year Greencard - just Biometrics?

13 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Just received a Form I-797C the other day that says: "To process your application, petition or request, the U.S. Citizenship & Immigration Services (USCIS) must capture your biometrics."

 

It then indicates our appointment (in less than 2 weeks) and says she needs to bring Photo Identification.

 

Note this is the first response since we filed the core I-751 back in May. Also, we did an Interview to receive her initial green card (back in 2017).

 

So my questions are:

1) This is not an interview, just a picture and fingerprinting, correct?

2) If they are responding with this biometric appointment, does that mean they will not require an interview for the 10-year GC approval?

3) Does the new health insurance requirement impact our submission at all? Should we take proof of insurance just so they can put it in the record?

 

Thanks!

1. this is a biometric appt, not an interview.

2. your interview will be for the 2 year green card if you are married less than 2 years. 10 years green card come after or if your interview happens to pass your 2 year marriage then you will get 10 year green card.

3.what is the new health insurance you are speaking of? i dont think health insurance has anythign to do with AOS

Update to your update.  

 

A federal judge has temporarily blocked the health insurance proclamation.

1.  It's just for fingerprinting.

2.  No.  Biometrics does mean an interview is being waived.

3.  No.  Has nothing to do with ROC.

1) Picture and fingerprinting. The picture will be the one on the 10-year card, FYI.

2) No, they might still require an interview.

Thank you everyone for your replies. So I guess things are up in the air at this point as to whether or not they will require an interview? How long after Biometrics do we usually hear something about the next step?

Also, for the Biometrics appointment, my understanding is she only needs to bring her Green Card and nothing more; correct?

At least a year.  I filled Nov 2017, bio Jan 2018, Card produced, no interview Jan 2019. But I was one of the quick ones.  If your file gets transfered to your local office, times can vary widely.  Some Nov 2017 filers are still waiting.  So sit back and relax, it will be awhile.😊.  You might try searching for a May I 751 filers form on here for folks who are on the same train as you.

You need to bring the old green card with you (just in case have an id with you also) and the letter for the appointment. You  filled roc may this year so the next time you hear something about the case will most likely be around may 2020.

It’s impossible to know for sure. I would suggest looking up processing times for the service center your application is at to get an idea. Also I find joining the appropriate I-751 filing group for your month.

 

Though both have been unhelpful for me since all the Nebraska Filers in my month have gotten approved already and we have been waiting with no updates..
