Default Which copy of the FP notice should we take for the FP appointment?

I received my FP notice. My Lawyer also received my FP notice which he mailed it to me. Now I have two copies. Which copy should I carry for my FP appointment? Does it matter?

TIA

Most likely you received the original FP notice and the lawyer received the courtesy copy (like in my case).
You should take the original FP notice (if possible) which is what my lawyer told me; although if your notice doesn't arrive (missing or stolen) then you could take the one which your lawyer received.
Just my 2 cents not a legal opinion.
Regards.

Default take both

Man,
You can take any or take both. It does not matter as long as they have at least one to see....Dont take tension, there is nothing to FP as long as you attend it

Doesnt matter which copy you bring. Attend the FP that is important. They will stamp your notice and sign it. Keep that copy for your records

Okay this might seem really silly, but ... we got two kids < 2 years and our FP apt is at 8am. That's definitely going to mean cranky kids so I want to prepare as much as possible for the worst.

Question - How much time does the FP process take for two people? Ours is code 3 - fingerprints, photos, if that makes any difference. Is there typically a long wait at the USCIS centers?

I think the time it takes for FP varies from ASC's to ASC's. Mine was done at phoenix and it tooks three hours for us from the time we went in to time we came out. It it is in the morning i guess it would be much faster becuase yours my be one of the first appointments

It takes 15 minutes at Boston ASC and you are expected to arrive 5 minutes before appointment just so that you can fill up a form. And you can take any copy so long as it has your name , Case # and A# on it. Its a simple process - no sweat!!!

Whoever has already attended FP, did the FP officer ask for 485 receipt also along with FP Notice.

I received FP Notice, but didnot receive receipts. I have the FP appointment tomorrow.

Thanks

Our (2 adult, 1 kid) FP was done yesterday 10/2 in Alexandria, VA, It took us 1 hr from the time we got in. Make sure to fillup the form quickly to get token number, but it may vary from place to place.

For those who got their FPs done, did they ask for your passport or was driving license enough?
