Default Strange... FP notice for spouse but not me!

Hello I opened 2 SRs 4 weeks ago. Yesterday I got two notices from USCIS.
My wife got finger printing notice but my notice says that "USCIS will notify me of biometrics when the appointment is available". Its so weird. I'm the prime applicant. Anybody any ideas? My lawyer said wait for 1 month. I spoke to USCIS customer service and they said wait for next month and open another SR.

My case was filed at NSC , then went to CSC and then transferred to NSC.

Anybody any ideas? Have they heard of cases where dependants are getting FP while Primary is waiting.

I have heard many cases where in the dependant gets their EAD faster than the prime applicant. My guess would be that USCIS is prioritizing H4 to get the EAD faster since the prime applicant already has the H1. That does not mean you won’t get your EAD ever but it looks like it is not a higher priority.

Irrespective of what your notice says, it is very likely that your case has still actually not been transferred to NSC and is still in the CSC. I know because this is what has happened in my case. Just like yours, both mine and my spouse's applications were transferred to the CSC for data entry. Then we got notices saying our cases have been sent back to NSC. But apparently, only the 485 applications were supposedly sent back. The CSC issued EADs and APs for both of us.

IN the meanwhile, since the name typed on my receipt was incorrect, my attorney got the Senator's office involved. Now comes the punch line...according to the information provided by the USCIS to the Senator's office, irrespective of what the notices said, only my spouse's 485 application was actually sent to the NSC. My application is still in the CSC for some reason.

Also, according to sources that my Attorney has, it appears that right now the USCIS is in a "meltdown". They have no idea how many applications they received, where the applications are, and what stage of processing each application is. This was in response to feelers my Attorney sent regarding the FP notices (since we have not received ours yet, RD for 485 is July 23rd). Apparently, the USCIS is in a state where they are absolutely not willing to commit to any timeframes about any applications. This is supported by the vague information that they have put up on the website wherein, they are indicating that they received 2.5 million applications (for all services) in July and August as compared to 1.2 million last year and that they plan to hire an additional 1500 employees to share the workload...

So in a nutshell, I wouldn't worry about your not receiving the FP notice. I am willing to bet, that for some reason all the dependants 485 applications were sent to NSC while the prime applicants are still being held at the CSC and it appears we are in the same, leaking, sinking boat!!

" I don't understand why these people schedule FP at attorney’s location"
he apologized and said he will open an SR to reschedule at my location and he assured me that this time it will be at my location, which I got in couple of weeks.

Hope you will get your FP notice soon.

good luck

Default database re-alignment

databases for CSC and NSC are aligned and then notices are sent automatically. Unless that happens one has to wait to get the FP notice.

Default Fp

If your wife has gotten fp notice, then try to go along with her on the scheduled date and time, they could take yours too, provided you get the notice before the day on which her fp is scheduled.
