Default Finger Printing appointment missed. Is it game over for me!!

I had a very unfortunate incident recenty. I relocated to a new city after I-485 filing. I banked on postal department mail forwarding service to forward all letters from USCIS to my new address. I was unfortunately proven wrong.

My I-485 receipt and FP notices were sent back to USCIS by the postal department as undeliverable. Then I went ahead and changed my address on the USCIS website. So these two notices were sent again to my current address by USCIS. But in this mess up I missed my FP appointment.

On the FP notice it is clearly written:- "If you fail to appear as scheduled, your application will be considered abandoned." Is it checkmate for me? Or do I still have hope?

I tried to call USCIS, but getting blocked by answering machine. I want to speak to someone from USCIS offices. What is the quickest way to reach a representative?

Default Same situation

Hi, I posted on a new thread about the similar situation I am in without seeing your post. I spoke to a USCIS Rep and asked him to put in a request for a new FP notice/schedule to be sent to my new address. He did so. I also asked him if it would help going along with my husband for his appointment and requesting them to FP me that time, he said I could try that. Do let me know if you have any other updates.

YES TRY THAT. GO with ur husband but tell them the original date and time of apotinemnt. they can look in the system. Also it is easier if you take ur attorneys copy with u..

Default Try this !!

Couple of days back, I read in one of the IV forums that Wednesday is amnesty day. You can just walk in with FP notice. Somebody mentioned in the same thread that many ppl who missed their original FP date got their Finger Printing done on Wednesday . Hope this helps.

Default You can do it!!!

http://www.ilw.com/seminars/august2002_citation2b.pdf

Please refer the document in the above link @ page 125.

"FD-258 Fingerprint Response Purge: The INS has established a 120-day
waiting period from the date of fingerprint scheduling to allow applicants to
submit fingerprints.
When an applicant fails to appear for fingerprinting or a response is not received within that 120-day period, and the applicant has
otherwise not advised the INS of a change of address or requested that he be
rescheduled, the case must be denied for abandonment. Accordingly, after
120 days, File Maintenance must check any remaining files for receipt of a
processed FD-258 or evidence of a change of address or request for
rescheduling. Perform the task "FD-258 Fingerprint Response Purge" for
purging of all files awaiting a FBI response."

Also, one of my friend who missed FP, taken the original FP notices, visited the ASC, explained how he got it missed (he never received one and got the notice from his attorney) and done FP without any issues.

Try this, nothing to worry, all the best!!!

One of my friend went for Finger printing 2 days late to a different center than mentioned in the Notice.They have accepted it.I did read some where in the forums you could go with out notice.If you have an attorney representing your case he might have a copy of the FP receipt notice.

Default Just Walk-In

Sargon,

Actually I have FP appointment on Oct 30th @ Dover DE, But i could not make it . Because I moved recently to Baltimore.
So I went to Baltimore ASC on OCT 31st. Successfully I finished my FPs.
They didnít ask single question.

Try to walk-in your ASC center tomorrow, try your luck.

Your mistake was in expecting the mail to be forwarded, it may be done by mistake by the post-office, but is not meant to be forwarded, it says return service requested on the envelop.
