  1. I think WA is the SLOWEST state, it’s ridiculous to wait TWO YEARS for an interview. Please update us afterwards and let us know if you got a 10 year green card, fingers crossed!
  2. Thank God I'm a nurse so I still have my job since Covid hit, but yes, it's not easy to live on one income in the US, and WA is an expensive state. My husband felt horrible as a man not being able to provide financially. But USCIS doesn't give a flying f*** about people like us. Right, no help from the congressman's office about the interview. We do hope my husband gets a 10 year green card soon, since it's been such a long wait.
  3. I understand your frustration, we feel the same, my husband got his biometrics appointment in May, a year after applying, and EAD in June. That happened after we reached out to our congressman. We reached out again and asked for help with interview appointment, but they called us back and said “everyone is waiting”…. I’ve just checked processing times for Seattle changed from 24-28 to 10-24 months so according to this we should get our appointment by May 2022… that’s when my husband’s EAD will expire so we’re prying he doesn’t lose a job after then.
  4. So… anybody still WAITING for their interview appointment? We’re in Seattle and still waiting… we even called USCIS and told them we’re willing to travel to Portland or anywhere else for the interview, but the answer from USCIS was they don’t do interviews in another state, which obviously is not the case based on previous posts here…
  5. So we finally had our biometrics 3 weeks ago, yes, a year after applying! My husband's EAD+AP and SSN arrived on Monday. The case status changed to "Ready to be scheduled for interview". I've just checked the I-485 processing times for Seattle, 24-28.5 months, which means our interview should be somewhere between June-October 2022... I've heard they're also scheduling interviews for Washington residents in Portland, which has I-485 processing times of 13-23 months. Anyone knows someone from WA who already had their interview scheduled?
  6. I wish we could see updates about our case on the USCIS online account. Apparently, because we didn't file online (we sent all forms via post mail), we cannot see these updates. We asked the USCIS officers if there's a way to fix it so that we could see detailed updates, but they tell us "I don't know" or "I'm not an IT person". I guess we'll just file for an inquiry for case outside normal processing time a day after the biometrics and we'll just keep calling and bugging them.
  7. Finally! Did he get his AP too? How long is AP valid for?
  8. How is your case progressing? Did you get your EAD and AP? Any news about the interview? On Monday we were finally able to speak to a humane tier 2 officer who scheduled my husband for biometrics, code 3, within the next 2 weeks. AOS received June 2020, biometrics June 2021... Seattle... btw contacting our congressman was useless, several emails back and forth since December and no help from him. Now we're just hoping for a fast AP processing so we can go overseas for medical treatment.
  9. Were you able to schedule your biometrics? We're still in limbo, no notice, no update, ignored by USCIS and Congressman's office.
  10. We've told them about the medical treatment issue, but no reply since then, neither from the Congressman's office nor USCIS. Honestly, I think this Congressman has no clue how to help us. Our application was received JUNE 5, 2020 and STILL NO BIOMETRICS... I don't know what to do, would an immigration lawyer be our last hope?
  11. Good to know they were able to schedule you. Good luck! When we called USCIS back in February and made service request about that "missed appointment", the tier 2 called back within couple hours too. But she said they were no longer able to schedule biometrics appointments and she had to put us back in queue and couldn't tell us when to expect the appointment. I remembered other people on this forum scheduled by tier 2, so I don't understand what the problem is. Maybe she was unhelpful because I referred to her as "tier 2 agent"? When she heard that, she raised her voice and said, "tier 2 officer"... I really didn't know that since she only introduced herself by first name at the beginning of call. At this point we're really just want my husband's AP as soon as possible, we need to go outside of the US for medical treatment and we're hoping to go soon.
  12. Similar situation here... and we're in Seattle, WA too... USCIS AOS receipt June 5th. In December, we contacted our district Congress Representative with concerns about the lack of progress, and we asked for help. We've also been calling USCIS since October, spoke to tier 2 officers a few times, and filed multiple inquiries over the past 6 months. On Feb 18, we got an email from our Congress Rep office with a copy of a biometrics appointment notice attached, asking us if we showed up to that appointment... the biometrics appointment was scheduled for Feb 16 apparently... We never got anything by mail. We went to our post office to inquire about it and we were told there was no such letter processed through their facility. So it seems like our appointment notice was mailed elsewhere, or USCIS never mailed us anything. We contacted USCIS again, they didn't even have any updates and didn't know whether or not our biometrics had been scheduled. When the tier 2 officer called back and said we should have received the biometrics letter, we requested the tracking number... the officer said they don't send biometrics notices with tracking... I just said, "that's a very concerning issue, taking into account the sensitive content of such letters, we believe our appointment notice was lost or misplaced, and our post office is willing to help us locate it", but the tier 2 officer got very defensive, said she'll put us back in queue, and hung up. Nothing since then. Our Congress Rep told us to print out the copy of the notice from their email and mail it with a cover letter asking to reschedule the biometrics, which we did. The Congress Rep promised to follow up on that and update us. That was a month ago. Since then we've been emailing the Rep office once a week. No response. We also called USCIS on April 2 and now we're waiting to speak to tier 2 officer again. Again... Btw my husband's USCIS online account hasn't been updated since June, even though we kindly requested that on several occasions via phone and mail. We've lost all hopes. What would you recommend at this point?

  14. Thanks, we did that, we explained that my husband arrived on a K1 visa and we gave them the exact dates of all the steps, we also included a copy of I-797C and a copy of my employer’s medical insurance asking us to provide my husband’s SSN... I also mentioned again that I’m an RN, provide care to Covid patients and may easily infect my husband, therefore it’s of utmost importance for me to make sure he has medical insurance. This “frontline hero” is sick of USCIS... Honestly I don’t understand why K1 AOS applicants should have biometrics here, they already had their biometrics done at the US embassy before the K1 visa was issued.
