I am just curious. If a person has an arrest record, will name check triggers a hit or the FP check? I suspect FP check, but not sure.

So , the USCIS says they get 39% positive response from FBI namecheck. Does that mean
for those 39% the GC/Citizenship is denied? I haven't heard much about folks getting GC denied because of critical FBI report. The Ombuds is unable to determine how much of the 39% positive response cases were already covered by other means of check. .
I think their reasoning could be like this "Even if 1 million good guys are put to difficulty because of the false hits, if they can catch 1 bad guy with the process, they will continue to do so". The only solution appears to increase the resources/money.

If you get hits in 100s or 1000s , yeah you can wait 2 -3 years.
This is observed from the names of Indians.
well this is great news there were no hits for my husbands name and only 1 hit for my name! Hopefully we will be ok and not get stuck in name checks then! Thank you for your response!

How did you know the Name check status ? Did you call USCIS ?
It is interesting to know they start the name check before FP.

Name Check is usually sent a week after ones I-485 ND.

I have obeserved this for several cases including mine.

Contrary to popular belief, there is no relation between the time a Name Check is initiated and FP. They are independent.

Finger print will only bring up those names who have a "rap sheet". That is people who were arrested, booked and then charged. A name check will bring out those who are under an investigation directly (main file) or associated with those being investigated. Thus a name check is essential from the national security point of view.

I do not know why USCIS is wasting money and resources in the questionable "NAME CHECK" process while they already have the faster "FINGER PRINT" process!!

It is not that simple. The soundex algorithm will change the spelling of each name (F, M, L) and do multiple combinations during the name check process. So a Sita can be become Seeta or Satyendra may become Satinder and so on. So don't count your chickens as yet

Default My name did not have any hits in google

but it is pending with FBI since Aug 1st. Looks like they also check for fragmented names.

This is my opinion, not an advise. Use it at your own risk.

One would wish that life was as simple as this, i did not get any hits but i am stuck for the past 3 years and counting

BTW, the hits that FBI looks for is criminal or 'derogratory' as they call it, i think its just your luck, some get screwed some dont...

If the Immigration Officer is kind enough you can ask if the Name Check is cleared. If he/she says No, you can ask him/her the date it was sent to the FBI.
I called today and they couldnt tell me anything at the 800 number they just said that they would contact me if they needed any information.... guess I just sit tight for now!

If I search my "Firstname Middlename" there are 10000 hits in google :-). And I know for sure there are few murderers , politicians and movie stars(most of them are arrested atleast once for crime or the other :-)) who have the same first name and middle name as mine back in India.Last name is what makes the full name unique.

My Namecheck was initiated Aug 4th as per TSC IO and is still pending.Looks like I am going to be waiting for a long time.
