  1. My wife and kids are in the same boat with nothing since the "case received" update. I think we're going to try calling in and asking for Tier 2 and maybe even having a service request submitted as a way to maybe trigger some action. I would hate to find out down the road that they never updated the case with the fingerprint review and possible consider it abandoned or just forgotten.
  2. If you are using a co-sponsor, I'm almost positive you also have to submit tax returns/transcripts for the sponsor as well. You didn't keep a copy of the packet you sent in? My number one piece of advice is ALWAYS keep an exact copy of what you send in.
  3. I think it's a hit or miss on this subject. My wife is also eligible to apply for citizenship next week... but we decided to wait it out a few more months.
  4. Hahaha... I know what you mean as I got a little mini anxiety attack thinking about this 😂 I did go with them and I can't remember if they did all 10 fingers or not. It was smooth though as far as I can remember, nothing stood out and they weren't like the last group or something. I of course kept their papers as well, I should pull them to see if I can figure out if they did all 10 fingers or not LOL
  5. We are in the same boat with the case status stuck at the initial "Case Received" update. Here's the question, does anyone know or think the following could be possible... If the case status doesn't change from the initial "case received" even after having your fingerprints (biometrics) taken - could it be at all possible that the biometrics file/document never made it to the Officer assigned for handling/reviewing our case? Meaning, USCIS could be thinking we never did biometrics and possibly even go as far as considering the case abandoned?
  6. You can start here, it's a link to the IRS website with a frequently asked questions page to get started: https://www.irs.gov/individuals/international-taxpayers/frequently-asked-questions-about-international-individual-tax-matters Here's another link to more info and with links to several sections and publications to help you: https://www.irs.gov/individuals/international-taxpayers/us-citizens-and-resident-aliens-abroad-filing-requirements However, my best advice would be to hire a professional tax preparer. Hope this helps. Maria
  7. We have very similar timelines and are relatively close in location (LA vs. SD). My wife and stepsons also haven't had any case status update since the "case received" status. I think the California Service Center is VERY slow. Let's hope they pick up the pace soon
  8. Once the case goes outside of "normal processing times" according to their timeline, I believe you can get your respective, local senator involved to "help" inquire.
  9. Me too... this phase has been the most stress-free. We're just going about normally without worrying about anything. Our day will come
  10. Just popping in to say hi to everyone and pass along some info... There's been a couple more October 2018 filers with ROC approvals recently and a couple filers got RFE notices in the last couple days. So it seems like maybe we're 3 mos. away or so from starting to see some activity [hopefully]
  11. That card production update is the actual green card. Wow, that was pretty darn fast!!
  12. My wife did her biometrics on April 29th and case status has not updated on either "new" or "old" websites and no email/text updates.
  13. If they have sent a hardcopy notice, twice, by mail and you haven't received it I would probably be asking to speak with a Tier 2/3 rep. Maybe somewhere in the system your address is missing from a profile or incorrect.
