If you read my earlier posts, I did have doubts that FP and NC may have some connection together.

But I think this seems more of a glitch in the TSC system in generation of FP. I mean either its NC or glitch that is causing this delay. Anyway, the NSC at least generates one for you after you speak to an IO. We are unfortunate in that also.

Dingudi,

In your response letter, did they anywhere mention about biometrics or finger printing notice specifically? In my letter, they did not mention about finger printing at all...All they said that the decision on my case has been delayed due to ongoing background check...I am not sure if they even knew that I had opened up the SR for not receiving FP notice.

Yeah, I was thinking about your earlier post last night when I was reading the response letter..:) But I just can not subscribe to the idea that FP and name checks are even remotely connected...

Well, we just have to wait and watch...good luck to all the fellow sufferrers..

111 days!
 
hey guys,

I was scared to take a trip to my country thinking that I would get my FP notice while I am away..but am back from my vacation and still no sign of FP.

I called the center..and the IO told me that they are within their processing times and they have upto 111 days to send me the FP notice?!!!

I had opened an SR on 3rd Oct...but of absolutely no use! I also got a letter from them stating that they are within their processing times.

any idea how to solve this mess?

ashshah 12-07-2007 02:51 PM

Even I am waiting for my FP from TSC.

I was thinking , that maybe , because there are so many of us who have not received FP notices, should probably send a fax or e-mail to ombudsman as a group listing our receipt numbers or maybe just names and tell them the inconsistencies from their side in issuing the FP notices.

I have a good feeling that if the letter/email or fax goes as a group , then they may take some action.

Just a idea , any inputs would be appreciated.

bskrishna 12-07-2007 03:40 PM

why not wait for more..
 
Is it going to hurt if we wait for some more time.It is not that we are missing getting our green cards and our priority dates are current. I have also got my case transferred from NSC-->CSC--> TSC. I agree that stuttling the paper work around the country is an extremely inefficient way to conduct business, but that is what CIS is. I got my transfer notice on the October 5th. I guess they will need more time to get my paper work and schedule an FP appointment.

exactly same case, applied july 17th, notice date sept 10th, transferred to TSC

gcfriend65 12-07-2007 03:49 PM

Databases alignment
 
When the cases gets shuffled around the country from NSC to CSC and back, the dtabases are separate. FP notices are generated when information on different databases are alligned together.

Hi,

Would you mind letting me know how did you find out about this database allignment information? Did any IO or any USCIS official told you about this?

All,

For your info, mine is not a transfer case. My application was filed directly with TSC on July 2nd and I have received 485 receipt notices from TSC itself. So delay in FP has nothing to do with transfer case.

I spoke to an IO today and my FP has still not been scheduled yet. Got the same old reply , waiting for an availalibilty from local ASC.

gchopes 12-10-2007 06:06 PM

dingudi - You talking about a possible connection between NC & FP.

Are the TSC folks waiting for FP in this thread primarity from NC? I am from NC and waiting for FP.

rpulipati 12-11-2007 12:47 PM

Name Check
 
I beilieve NC meant Name check and not North Carolina.

Does the transfer matter here, because dingudi's case is not a transfer case and he's still waiting...

I am in the same boat. 485 filed at NSC on July 12, sent to TSC on September 7th. EAD/AP filed on Aug 9 at NSC and they are still in NSC.
I have AP approved and EAD pending. No FP notice yet either. Its been more than 45 days since opening a SR for that for both me and my wife. System sucks. I have been to the local ASC 3 times with no results.

Again I am not sure if the fact that my 485 is in TX and EAD/AP is in NE is cauing all the problems.

whyregisteration 12-13-2007 03:54 PM

one can call if FP notice has not got yet. But nothing useful for me (July 3rd filler), recently I received one mail: '.. still within our processing time ...', still no FP:eek:

HumHongeKamiyab 12-13-2007 04:03 PM

Does it really help if you open SR for FP?
 
Do we have anyone here who opened a SR for FP and has received FP notice ? Does it really help if you open SR for FP?

Thanks

HarshJ 12-13-2007 04:20 PM

Hi,

After almost 40 days of filing, here is an email I got....nothing of substance :mad:

We have requested an appointment be scheduled for you to complete biometrics. A notice will be sent when a time becomes available.

If you have any further questions, please call the National Customer Service Center at 1-800-375-5283.

Please remember: By law, every person who is not a U.S. citizen and who is over the age of 14 must also notify the Department of Homeland Security within 10 days from when they move (persons in "A" or "G" nonimmigrant status are exempt from this requirement). If you have moved, please complete a Form AR-11 and mail it to the address shown on that form. If you do not have this form, you can download it from our website or you can call the National Customer Service Center at 1-800-375-5283 and we can order one for you. If you move, please call us with your new address information as soon as your move is complete. If you have already called us and given us this information, you do not need to call again.

HarshJ 12-13-2007 04:21 PM

By "filing" in my above comment, I meant filing a SR for FP appointment. I already have my EADs and APs

dreamworld 12-13-2007 04:36 PM

I had long dely in gettting my 485/EAD/AP receipts from USCIS and I wrote to my local congressman. It really worked and got the receipt numbers from congressman office.

Try to write to your local congressman and explain your situation in one page.

Buddy, it looks like its only you and me remaining who has not received the FP notice. For me its been 30 days since opening SR and nothing. We are the unfortunate ones who have not only not received FP but our application are in TSC , where opening an SR is of no use.

We may want to try a different strategy to inquire about our FP rather than calling that number floating around which is of no use to us. All I got from calling that number was WAIT , Local ASC must be busy.

I am not sure InfoPass appointment will help, but hope its worth trying.

I am July Filer too I have not received evn a single receipt for anything. I called USCIS they said it is taking from 90 to 120 days so wait and call.

dingudi, paragpujara and others...
 
Guys, any update on your FP notices? I have written to ombudsman almost 3 weeks ago about not receiving FP notices and nothing yet...

What are you guys thinking as next step?

No update from my side. I had called last week and week before that. Apparently I got the same IO the last two times and first time she told me no FP scheduled , security check cleared. Second time she said no FP scheduled and I asked about security check and she said its still pending. Imagine same IO giving inconsistent information regarding my security check. I am not even sure to believe anything they say anymore. I am not even sure if they really look it up or not.

leoindiano 12-16-2007 09:06 PM

I am from North Carolina as well. No FP yet...It could be something to do with NC local office.....

texas-vermont-texas cycle...application date August 3rd.

paragpujara 12-17-2007 10:10 AM

No Updates !!
 
Last week I called USCIS regarding FP and Customer Representative told me that they have sent me a letter on 21st of Oct regarding SR I opened in the month of OCT (I haven't received that letter yet. Do not know where they sent it). I asked her about the content of the letter but she said she doesn't have that information and I have to wait till 19th Dec to open new SR. She suggested visiting local USCIS through Infopass. I have taken infopass appointment for this coming Friday. I will update you on Friday about the appointment.

Mount Soche 12-17-2007 10:44 AM

the letter
 
I got "the letter" too...
It is just a letter recognizing that there was a SR made etc...
There really is no substance to it. You should get your letter before 45 days of creating the SR. I got mine on the 45th day.
Once again, the letter says nothing. What should happen is that your FP appointment should be made during the 45 days after you create a SR. If it is not made, you get "the letter." After the letter, I was told to wait 60 days from when I received the letter to get FP appointment and if I didn't get them within those days to call back.

I got a canned response from USCIS
 
I opened a SR for non receipt of my FP notice, on 30Oct2007. I got a reply from USCIS exactly after 45 days ( very prompt) notifying me that " my FP has not yet expired or my FP is not yet cleared". Certainly this looks like a canned reply from USCIS which was sent even without looking at my file. I guess they should be more transparent in their process than just sending plain lies.

prakgc 12-18-2007 04:03 PM

same here
 
Dingundi,
I am in same situation who has sept 10th ND from TSC , no FP for me or my wife. I did open a SR and i got a response letter saying that either your FP has expired or clearance has not been received.. will send one by mail soon.

It has already been 45 days since the letter was dated. NO FP nothing.

Has going to IO helped anybody is getting a FP notice? That seems my last resort.

If its TSC then I do not think it will help at all. Whenever I talk to IO their only response if they are waiting for availability at local ASC.

So TSC people are out of luck.

fundo14 12-18-2007 04:32 PM

On the same boat. Filed SR twice. No fp notice yet.

Friends - I went for FP appointment on 10/23/2007. But when I check USCIS website. The LUD still shows me 09/20/2007 on I-485. Please let me know if this is normal...

paragpujara 12-21-2007 10:59 AM

Infopass Appointment !!
 
I had infopass appointment this morning at Fairfax, VA regarding FP. IO told me that generally they send out FP within 30 days of 485 receipt but if ASC is too busy then it gets delay. He asked me whether my EAD and AP are approved or not. And then he requested FP for me and mywife and said i should receive FP notice within 3 weeks. Hopefully i will get FP within next couple of weeks. Keep you guys posted about my FP notice. Happy Holidays to you all !!

leo2606 12-27-2007 11:50 PM

IOs at TSC are responding to the enquiry of your case i.e they give info about name check status.
But in NSC the IOs are not giving any information, they are just saying they can't tell anything.This happened to me two times since last week.Does any one got same experience with NSC?
