Hi guys!

I'm a little nervous and wondering weather anybody else is in a position similar to mine.

 

My husband and I filled for AOS two months ago (June the 9th), but we haven't hear back from USCIS yet... Which means two months of wait. Is this normal?

I red on the forum that people get responses (case numbers I mean, or some kind of reception notification) as quick as 2 weeks after sending the paperwork, max 7.

 

A bit of background story (shoud it be useful):

I came to the US on ESTA on March this year and my 90 days as a tourist ended on June the 9th (day that we filled an mailed AOS), so now it's two months that I've been here not lawfully I guess? This makes me extremely nervous as should anything happen, I don't have any notice from USCIS to prove that I at least started a process to stay here legally.

 

My husband and I got married in May and we sent the forms i130, i130a, i485, i864 and g1145 (along with copy of all of the personal documents requested and so on).

I was waiting to receive a case number to add the i944 form (we didn't know about it when we filled the application), plus the medical one and the two additional ones to request permit to work and travel.

 

They might reject the application as the i944 was not included, but still no news of any kind from them!

I don't know what to do, but I'm really nervous and worried.

 

Please note that we filed a paper application and we haven't been charged for the fees.

 

Do you guys have any suggestion?

I also tried to call them, but they don't give any information without a case or receipt number.

Maybe somebody has a contact number for the Chicago office? (that's where we sent my application, we are based in California)

 

Thank you!

Thank you!

I see you're in California (I live in LA). Luckily Senator Kamala Harris's office is very responsive about helping immigrants. Google her website and file a report under "Help with a Federal Agency." Provide as much info about yourself and your case as possible (birth date, passport number, date you mailed the papers etc). Her office does take a little time to get back you but they do always send letters updating you about your case. 

 

I know USCIS is even more backlogged due to COVID but I feel like 2 months is way too long. You should have received the receipt notices and a case number by now.

Thank you so much!! This is a very useful suggestion, my husband and I will get in touch with the senator Harris support team.

we are both quite worried, this is a very concerning situation considering that we have no way to get information from anybody and all we can do is basically wait.
