I don't think this is true..
 
Because from my experinece you can't even talk to an IO in TSC.. You can only talk to a customer rep if your case is in TSC..

Unless ofcourse your meant IO was the same as a "customer rep" from National customer service.

Finally got FP Notice !!
 
Guys,

Just wanted to give you an update on my FP notice. Finally I got FP notice today schedule for 01/29/08. I guess Infopass appointment works. I had infopass appointment on 21st of Dec 2007 and IO told me I should expect FP within 3 weeks . I guess USCIS has started working after a long break. Hang on guys.

Congrats Parag. You got it finally. Am still waiting.

Do you know which option you selected when you had scheduled the infopass? Also, what documents did you carry at the infopass?

Thanks for the update again.

paragpujara 01-06-2008 12:55 PM

I selected following options for infopass appointment.

You need Service on a case that has already been filed -->Case Services follow-up appointment - If it has been over 45 days since you contacted NCSC and have not received a response to your inquiry. You must bring the Service Request ID Number related to your inquiry to the appointment.

And I carried Receipts for 485,765 and 131 for myself and my wife (of course photo ID).

Hope this helps. Good Luck.

Hi,

I had started the thread a while back and I am glad to tell that I finally got my FP notice and completed the FP process.

I had opened a SR on Nov 5th after filing I-485 in July (receipt date Jul 23rd). I got a standard notice in Dec first week indicating that they shall schedule a FP notice when there is an opening available at ASC ( I guess a standard reply from what I have read in the posts). I then took an info pass on Dec 8th and it was also a seemingly non fruitful visit.

Finally on Jan 2nd I got a voice mail at work from attorney (dated Dec 26th) that my FP appt was on Dec 27th. I never got any notice to this effect till Jan 2nd in mail. Hence the attorney sent me his copy by FedEx and I drove the very next day (Jan 4th) to the ASC in Oakland, CA. I explained the situation and they were kind enough to schedule me the same day. The process was pretty straightforward, and was completed in about 10-15 minutes.

My spouse on the other hand did get her notice in mail and her FP appt is on Jan 11th.....

So am not sure what worked....the call to CS, taking an infopass, or just plan praying :)

Anyways, I wish everyone luck here.

Parag,

COngrats!. Looks like yours is in TSC. Good to see someone from TSC getting it. It could very well have been a result of you taking the infopass appointment.

Could you tell us briefly what did you tell or ask IO during InfoPass appt. Did you also tell them that you had opened an SR and did you show them the SR response letter also.

Eager to hear a little detail about the conversation you had with IO during Infopass appointment.

paragpujara 01-06-2008 08:43 PM

My infopass appointment was pretty quick. I guess it lasted for only 5 to 7 mins. I opened an SR in the month of September however I never received SR response letter from USCIS which they said they have sent me in the last week of October so I didn't have any SR letter to show him. I carried only receipts for 485,765 and 131 for myself and my wife. I asked IO that it's been more than 90 days since I received receipts for employment based 485 and haven't received FP yet. He asked me for Photo Id and receipts for myself and my wife. Then he asked whether I received work authorization (765) and travel document (131) or not. Then he entered our information (receipt no and confirmed my address as well as my attorney's address) and was searching something in his machine and said I will get my FP soon. I asked him is there any time line? He said within 3 weeks. That's it. He said they have received many applications in the month of July and Aug and that's why they are lagging. I guess this is it. I was out of USCIS office within 10 mins.

Thanks Parag, your post is helpful.

One quick question - I do not have original 485 receipts with me but have scanned copies of them which my lawyer has emailed me. If I print them out and take them to the infopass, is that sufficient or do they ask for the original receipts?

Thanks and good luck ahead!

paragpujara 01-07-2008 09:13 AM

Scanned Copies will do !!
 
I also did the same thing. I got the scan copies from my lawyer. Print out will work (IO will verify yr name on receipt with yr photo Id).

Good Luck and lemme know if you need any further help.

Dingudi, I just sent you a PM...

leoindiano 01-26-2008 06:35 PM

called USCIS on jan 4th, they said they are scheduling, it will take 3 weeks to get the notice, till now nothing.
called yesterday again, this time they said 45 days. Opened SR. I am hearing no use with SR. Not sure what is going on?
Meanwhile, i gave this procedure to a freind and they got notices.

Can anybody tell me if there will be an LUD on i-485 when they issue a FP notice?

abhatti 01-30-2008 06:55 PM

FP Notice and SR for TSC
 
I had to travel back home so I called customer service to find out if I could get FP notice earlier so that I could do FP before departure.
Called Customer serivce on November 20th 2007, he generated a SR for me and then there was scilence for next 30 days.
after 30 days exactly on Dec 20th I got a letter saying

"On 11/20/2007 you, or the designated repersentative shown below, contacted us about your case. some of the key information given to us at that time was the following.

..........all the information here for my case/s.............

the status of this service request is:

USCIS service center records show that your finger print results have expired or a clearence has never been received. Fingerprints must be taken at the application support center (ASC) in your area. A notice will be mailed to you indicating a specific time, place and date to appear for biometrics processing at an application support center. All supporting documentation/evidence must be submitted at the time of the ASC appointment."

ever since am waiting for that magical biometrics letter.

Hope it helps

NO FP Yet
 
I have been waiting for the FP in the hope that they will be issuing it soon, its already Feb and I have not received it yet. Im the only one who has not recieved the notice yet in my friends circle, I have opened an SR last week. Mine is TSC application. Are there any TSC guys yet to receive the FP notices. Overall are there a significant number of people still waiting or is it just a few of us
Thanks

rtarar 02-05-2008 09:01 AM

July 2nd filer no FP yet
 
Called the service center.Muiltiple times.Opened SR twice still no FP yet.
Mine is a NSC->TSC case.

I will try calling them again today.

shantak 02-05-2008 12:34 PM

I called my attorney today to inquire about this and he told me that one-third to one-fourth of the applications that he has filed in July are yet to receive the FP notices and he asked me not to worry about it.
Hope he is true and that we will be getting the FP notices soon.
I will keep you all updated
thanks

We can get inforpass by visiting https://infopass.uscis.gov/, i will try that.

mariusp 02-15-2008 09:04 AM

No FP
 
No FP yet... NSC Received Date July 12, 2007 - Notice Date TSC Sept. 10, 2007. All in all, almost 6 months and no sign of a biometrics appointment... bummer.

xela 02-15-2008 09:07 AM

call uscis
 
Call them a lot of us did, when we got moved from one center (receipt notice) to another for processing. You should get a FP notice soon after you talked to them!

mariusp 02-15-2008 10:11 AM

I actually did call in mid Nov. and opened a SR. I then got a canned response about a month ago on how the case is within processing time and blah blah... I call again this morning and apparently their system was experiencing some kind of problem and the rep. wasn't able to open a new SR although she did apologize and thought that 5 months is an excessive amount of time to wait for biometrics. She then transferred me to an IO who based on the service center processing times posted online told me that they're currently processing May 07 and my receipt date of July 12 is not up yet.... What a bunch of BS!

Called yestery they said I don't need a FP now. :)

"If required they will schedule me". I liked this one from the CS agent

kannan 02-15-2008 12:25 PM

Me too, No FP till Today.......

apahilaj 02-15-2008 12:40 PM

Count me in...

It seems like I've got the oldest Notice date of 8/27 who has not received the biometrics yet. Infopass was pure waste of time as well.

kannan 02-15-2008 01:00 PM

I applied on July2,got the receipt on Aug 22 nd.Got EAD,AP.
One strange thing is my case is NSC to CSC but still in CSC only .I think except my case,all others cases transfred back to NSC.I do not know the reason.
Any comments please....

apahilaj 02-18-2008 11:57 AM

Fyi
 
I am assuming you guys saw this:

http://www.uscis.gov/files/pressrele...)(17Feb08).pdf

USCIS will consolidate FPs for 485 and EADs. So if we don't receive biometrics for 485, hopefully we will get one for EAD renewal which will also serve the purpose for 485 processing.

Note: This only applies to concurrent filers of 485 and EAD.

Apahilaj,

Yes I saw that but mine was not concurrent filing. I applied for EAD couple of months after I-485 filing and have also received the EAD.Still waiting for FP though.
