  1. After 224 days my EAD/AP have been approved!!! 😆 And my GC interview has been scheduled! So much activity on my account this week 🥳 USCIS said in early Sept that my case may have been restarted at the time of my RFIE in June but it looks like in reality it delayed my case by 4 weeks. I hope this can be somewhat comforting to others in a similar situation.
  2. I submitted my second round of service requests on September 4th (for both EAD and AP). I got this response on my AP: "Due to workload factors not related to your case, USCIS anticipates a delay in completing your case. USCIS is committed to adjudicating immigration benefits in the order received and in a timely and efficient manner. " This is contradictory to what was sent to the congresswoman's office. My SR for the EAD has been assigned to an officer as of 9/14 and I'm still awaiting a response.
  3. It's epic. There's been no communication from USCIS (obviously) about what is actually happening to my specific case just this random rule of theirs that could apply in this situation. I'm hoping that they say it could be restarted but still may only have paused our cases so the delay will only be a few weeks. I'll definitely post what happens. Good luck to you!
  4. The Sen's office apparently uses the same channels as the congressmen so there's not much more to get the politicians to do in my case unfortunately. Hope you hear something positive soon! Good luck!
  5. Wow I've read it multiple times and still struggle to get meaning out of it! Thanks for the source! I fear I've reached a dead end and I'm just going to have to wait. Senator's offices apparently use the exact same channel as the congressmen so there is no benefit to getting them on board and it could apparently slow my case down.
  6. So I have a maximally frustrating response from the congresswoman's office: "Thank you for your inquiry regarding this constituent’s immigration matter. This case is currently within our normal processing times. Our records indicate that we received a response to a request for evidence for the underlying I-485 application on 6/18/2019. Pursuant to 8 CFR § 103.2(b)(10), if USCIS issues a request for initial evidence on either the Form I-765 application or the principal Form I-485 application, the processing timeframes start over from the date of receipt of the initial evidence. It appears that the National Benefits Center is currently processing cases of this category filed on or before March 30, 2019. We can use this information to estimate that your case is about 3 months away from being assigned to an adjudicator. Please let us know if you don’t hear back from USCIS by 12/10/19." I think I'll call the Senator in the morning.
  7. And I have an answer but it is probably the most frustrating answer I could have received: "Thank you for your inquiry regarding this constituent’s immigration matter. This case is currently within our normal processing times. Our records indicate that we received a response to a request for evidence for the underlying I-485 application on 6/18/2019. Pursuant to 8 CFR § 103.2(b)(10), if USCIS issues a request for initial evidence on either the Form I-765 application or the principal Form I-485 application, the processing timeframes start over from the date of receipt of the initial evidence.

  8. I'm at 194 days and counting and the most I've heard on my EAD/AP/AOS is my AOS case is ready to schedule an interview as of early last month. I've done 2 service requests too. I'm trying to get some answers about my case through my congresswoman since I'm also way beyond normal time now. Seems like that would be a good next step for you too. In theory the case worker put in a request with USCIS last Wednesday. She says it should take 'a couple of weeks' to hear anything. That seems totally excessive to me. But so does this whole process so my judgment may mean precious little... I'm wondering if I should I stay on her case with calls/emails or is there really nothing else to do? Is it time to get the senator involved? How have others worked with politicians to get their cases to move?

  10. I feel like I'm in exactly the same boat (Feb 28th AOS, RFE for a more detailed birth cert in June, Interview ready to be scheduled since Aug 6, SR July 31 - no answer). I submitted a second service request but I really don't think they even look at those. I also hopefully have a job waiting for me (but I don't know for how long) and it was against company policy to write a job offer for somebody without work authorization so I couldn't go for an expedite. I totally understand the feeling it might have been lost. It feels like they handle these cases in such a random order. I have visions of my file falling behind a desk. Realistically I think the EAD could (and should) show up any day but my pessimistic side fears the worst. I think the best we can do is keep pressure on the politicians to get an answer for us. Good luck!
  11. I filed Feb 28 and had the opportunity to open a service request on July 31 but it was completely ignored. I've filed a second one as of Sept 4. I contacted my congresswoman's office this week who has a case worker who is 'reaching out to USCIS'. My question is should I also reach out to the senator/ombudsman? Or is it redundant/not worth the effort? Thanks!
  12. Yeah I'm in the same boat. I called the day after the date in my email (but before 30 days), talked to a tier 2, and all they said was they hadn't responded to my service request yet... which I obviously already knew. I guess I'll call at 30 days just because I don't have anything else to do but I don't expect anything useful.
  13. Ah thanks for the tip I've done the same thing. Anything to add a little bit of reliability to this super shaky system!
  14. They did actually call me back with absolutely no useful information. Wait. Maybe something will happen in 30 days. Maybe it won't.
