  1. My I-765 was approved yesterday, after 200 days of waiting and 2 service requests! Keep faith if you havent gotten yours yet, my case is complicated as hell and I got mine. Filed i130+485+765 March 28 I485 Ready to schedule interview Sept 5 I765 card in production October 15 Hope SSN comes quick so I can start working asap!
  2. Does anyone know how well case inquiries are going for the I-765? Filed mine on the 9th and have an expected reply date of October 1st. What exactly are their options for reply? My underlying i-485 just turned ready for interview a week or two ago so I am worried that may cause an issue as well. I want to go start applying for jobs right now but I dont want to get the big middle finger from USCIS again on the 1st... I am also a concurrent i-130 and i-485 filer, not k-1, if it matters.
  3. After 162 days of waiting, my first real update (if you can call it that): I-485 Ready to be scheduled for interview! My local office is Seattle so I have another 9-25 month wait ahead for that but I'm hoping it means my EAD is on someone's desk right now!! I am a concurrent I-130 + I-485 filer so that may be why it took so long.
  4. Astounding. Good to know that USPS won't forward government documents, but they will just stick them in the wrong mailbox.
  5. Oh boy I must be blind. If a mod wants to delete this and hide my shame that would be lovely.
  6. Haven't seen anyone post about this yet. USCIS just announced 9 hours ago they will be redistributing cases from high load field offices to low load field offices that are not local. No information on exactly how far away they can be, or exactly how much this is supposed to speed up processing times. If anyone has more info it would be appreciated!

  7. They won't even let you in the front door without an appointment letter. They also need the barcodes on the letter you will get to be able to scan and do your biometrics. If it's any consolation, as far as I know, biometrics don't affect your processing time. You should get your EAD/AP at the same time you would have if you went on the 3rd for bio. I could be wrong about that, but I've seen a couple cases where people have gotten their benefits before the biometrics date, so I'm assuming it's not needed to continue processing. @justlove I HIGHLY recommend going to the SS office and getting your card now while you are still in K-1 status. You will be waiting a looooong time for your SSN otherwise. It's extremely important to have one if you want to rent an apartment, get a bank account, buy a car, get a drivers license, pretty much everything.
  8. If you walk in do it early in the week and early in the day. I did my walk-in at the end of the day on a Friday and they were not amused. I was initially told by them that they do not allow walk ins aside from Monday and Tuesday. Edit: wow I should have read your next post. I see you already went. Glad it went well!
  9. Thank you, I've been considering giving them a call and I think I'm going to do it on Monday. Hopefully it'll make a difference. My main concern with that is that they wouldn't be working on the EAD without completing the bio review, which would obviously be tragic.
  10. I'm in the same boat. Had bio scheduled for 4/21, did early walk in 4/19. Seattle WA local office. No update whatsoever on any of my case statuses, all still "received" or "fingerprint fee received". I fantasize about having the EAD just show up in my mail one day like @Aa & Jj said. Does anyone have an idea of how long biometrics are actually supposed to take to process?
  11. "Discussion" is over, I apologize for the wall of posts. It's hard not to give in to trolls when it's someone's future at stake.
  12. The "professional knowledge" you are sharing is contrary to USCIS policy. I have given a USCIS source for every single bit of information I have posted. In the thread you linked, nearly all replies to the OP are about how risky it was to do what they did. This entire conversation is long off topic, the question was answered a long time ago: @Abbey B does have a 15 day overstay on record, and this will be seen by CBP agents upon re-entry if they choose to travel. I never said they would be deported, only that they were deportable. Those are facts, and that's all there is to it.
  13. Just the start of an even longer wait. Don't worry though, sometimes texts/emails dont get sent out and you will just get the NOA1 as a happy surprise one day with biometric appointment shortly behind
  14. There is nothing in the K-1 forcing you to file within 90 days, the (potential) issue is that your I-94 was expired for a period of time before filing. Bottom line is when your i-94 expires, you are unlawfully present(until AOS filing). I agree that you have a low risk of anything going wrong, but personally I wouldn't take the chance on a trip that can be rescheduled. I'm not trying to scare you or anything, I'm just thinking of risk/reward. Its like speeding 5 mph over the limit, you probably won't get a ticket. Probably. I want to clarify as well that I'm just talking about AP. I'm not implying that you are actually going to get deported while within the states. That would be absurd. As well, immediate relatives of USC are eligible to get GC even with overstays. So no problem with your application. That thread does indeed speak for itself. Please read it. This thread also details the exact situation described by @treppenwitz as "unrealistic"
