  1. Ugh, that's rough. To feel so close, yet so far. I guess companies are just covering their butts. I understand, but sucks for us waiting around at the mercy of USCIS. Ahhh. Well I guess it would be worth getting some feelers while I am waiting. Thanks for your response!
  2. Has anyone attempted to try and find a job out here in order to expedite their EAD/AP? I am not sure if this is a risk worth taking, considering how long I have already waited.
  3. I see what you're saying. I misunderstood, as I thought you possibly thought that I am a CR-1 filer. OK, well, I am hoping for the best, but I am looking at the options to limit my chances of being denied entry back into the states as I do have a lot of family here, including my Grandma. God forbid something happens to her and I am not allowed to come back bc of my marriage status. But I guess there are very little options. Thanks for your reply.
  4. I came with a K-1 visa in early January, and married within the 90 days. Filed AOS a month later, all within the validity of I-94.
  5. Thank you for your reply @geowrian. My husband probably does not know the repercussions of filing for divorce, aside from the dissolution of the marriage, so these options will require some patience and some serious thought. I am definitely open to counseling to hopefully resolve the issues at hand. Thank you!
  6. Hi there, My husband and I married in March, and we filed for AOS, EAD/AP at the beginning of April. Turns out, marriage isn't going the way we wanted it to, and he refuses to seek any help (ie. Couples therapy, marriage counseling) to possibly workout our issues. If he files for a divorce before my AP is approved (as the wait is getting longer by other ppls accounts), how long do I have before i am required to move back to Canada, and do I run the risk of not being allowed back into the US if we are divorced and no longer seeking permanent residency? Any help would be appreciated.
  7. I should have been clearer. My local office is in California, where there is a long processing time vs the Midwest states (I know some applicants from those states already have interviews). I'm wondering if any applicants from the January thread, who have an interview date, have their local office in California.
  8. I wonder how many of those who have an interview date have their applications processing through the California Service Center.
  9. Nothing, unfortunately. I check everyday (including weekends) for updates, but still zilch. I'm about 50 days into EAD/AP processing times. So I don't know whether to consider that half way through or a quarter of the way through.
  10. HI there, how are you checking your local office's processing times? Was your biometrics appointment held at your local office, or elsewhere?
  11. I had my biometrics on May 4, and I haven't received any mail from USCIS regarding updates. I haven't seen anyone on this thread mention mail updates for their EAD/AP.
  12. How many? I wonder if any of those filers are in Southern California.
  13. Yeah, I'm very surprised. I was expecting another two week wait for any case change.
  14. My case was updated to "Case is Ready to Be Scheduled for An Interview" as of May 8th. Lets see how long I'm in this phase for...
  15. I had my biometrics today, and I learned something... I had my passport for ID (of course, it has my maiden name), and all my paperwork includes my married name now so if you are also applying with your married name and have no other identification with your married name, take you marriage certificate to verify that you have some registered information. USCIS said they registered both last names but my paperwork will be registered with my maiden name. I was hoping to avoid that.
