Hi everyone,

 

My husband came on a K-1, we were married in August 2019 and submitted his AOS application along with work/AP combo card. It was received 9/2/19 and his fingerprints have been updated since early October. We’ve still heard nothing about his combo card. We submitted an inquiry because we’re outside the window... is there anything else we can do to speed this up? The USCIS phone agents are unhelpful.

 

It’s bad enough he can’t work for almost a year and we’re in the middle of a pandemic but we’re also supposed to go to Croatia Sept to have our church ceremony. Without the AP he can’t leave the country, even if everything turns out to be safe.

 

Any constructive advice our community can offer would be appreciated.

They won't do anything until your current service request gets answered.

What does the tracking say? Did you move after submitting AOS?

Yes, they received our RFE two months ago and updated our AOS status this week to “ready to be scheduled for interview.” We’re in NYC where the wait times for AOS interview are 1.5 years so I didn’t think much of it. Could that have been it?

We haven’t moved. The tracking for both the EAD and AP say “fingerprints completed” but have said that since October.

The RFE paused the EAD and AP processing. You said they it just changed to ready to schedule, so the EAD and AP will only continue processing now.

 

Living in NYC will only be a factor now. The forms are processed first at NBC.

RFIE resets clock on EAD processing. 

Thanks everyone! This is helpful to know- at least it’s not randomly being ignored and there’s a reason.

 

When you say “resets the clock” what kind of time frame are we looking at now? Is it 30-90 days from when we sent the RFE back that we should expect to hear a response about his EAD?
