3rd time's the charm
 
As an update,
I called TSC again today. Previously, I called early in the morning here on the East Coast and was transferred to the national service center, so at least this time I got to speak to someone @ TSC.
I gave them my receipt # and as soon as I mentioned biometrics the person said that she will schedule appointments for me and my wife and depending on availability at the local center I should get an appointment letter in the following 60 days. They must be getting a lot of this type of calls because she was very prompt to schedule the appointment. I also asked about my NC status and that was cleared in Sept so good news there as well.
I'm a little more optimistic as this time as at least now I know that USCIS initiated the request.... I'll wait and see what happens next.

So basically, this is the 3rd time I call and the first time they're willing to do anything to help.

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!

I got same exact response as you regarding 60 days wait - only difference is my name check is still pending. Personally, I don't trust this any more until I get it...

shantak 03-18-2008 12:07 PM

Apahilaj,
Any update on your FP. Im still waiting for mine. I dont know how many are like us.
As you said my only concern is will it impact EAD renewal in any way?
People, please throw in some comments who have not received their FP yet

No FP yet. Got a response to my SR indicating that I will get the notice once the appointment is available at my local ASC.

dingudi 03-18-2008 12:24 PM

No FP yet for me either. spouse received and completed FP couple of weeks ago.

I do not understand why the national center tells that FP is based on local availability and local center tells no FP because name check pending . These are so inconsistent and different answers we get from same organization.

saketkapur 03-18-2008 12:27 PM

still waiting
 
Had opened my 2nd SR on March 1st....asked to call back on April 3rd if still no notices........:o

Thats a good way to lead the life, but this immigration process is taking a big toll . Hope we all come out of this
Thanks everyone for providing an update. Atleast that gives an idea as to how many are still waiting. Please update accordingly

FP notice for Jul 23rd Filer?
 
By now you should have had your EAD and AP in hand - after FP was done. What was the reason for the delay? Most of these cases got FP notices within 4 weeks of Aug 17th.

mariusp 03-18-2008 08:57 PM

Most of us filed in July but had our cases transfered to TSC later. For example, I filed July 12 @ NSC and the receipt was generated on Sept 10 from TSC. I know of others with ND Sept 10 @ TSC who didn't receive FP notices, including coworkers of mine. It looks like someone at TSC took a few shortcuts during the receipting process.

My frustration comes from the fact that I've called three times and opened SRs but still nothing. I don't see how someone can honestly screw up three times and fail to schedule a simple FP appointment. If this is such a huge task for them you can imagine how the entire process is handled and why we 're all stuck waiting for name checks, priority dates, processing dates, biometrics appointments, extended reviews, and the rest of the crap...

shankar_thanu 03-24-2008 09:22 PM

Finally Got The FP notice..
 
I applied 485 on July2nd 2007, we never got the FP notice, I called up the USCIS inquiry number, opened two service requests, nothing happened. My lawyer sent a letter asking USCIS to look at our case, that was ignored as well. We finally got an Infopass appointment and went to the office today, after a little bit of confusion, we were told that the most likely cause was that we sent pictures along with our EAD applications and that confused CIS procedures and they missed sending us FP notices.

Cant believe this crappy explanation, but this is what we were told. We were told that usually they call people in for FP and take the pictures and then process the EADs. Anyway, it took all of ten minutes to figure this out and issue us an FP notice, there is no reason they couldnt have done this over the phone...

Good thing though is that not having the FP done does not stop then from processing the Name check and infact my wife's name check has been completed..


Hope that helps...

mani_r1 03-24-2008 11:08 PM

Which USCIS office did you go?

Which USCIS office did you go ? Did they schedule your FP or did you get your FP done there itself?

Thanks

Mani_r1,
Went to the Washington DC office in Fairfax (Prosperity Ave). Got an appointment for finger printing scheduled for April8

gckalafda 03-25-2008 05:30 PM

FingerPrints Postponed
 
I have postponed my finger prints when I was in India back in Oct 2007, and I haven't got yet, should I ask them send it again or should I wait untill they send it to me.

I heared some where in the forum that when your comeback to India they took fingerprints at the prot of entry and that is sufficient.

Is that true?

Guru's Please reply if you have any Idea.

gcformeornot 03-26-2008 10:28 PM

No FP yet
 
for me. Family already done.
Are any of you guys still waiting like me?

How to talk to customer
 
service rep. I tried calling could not find a way to talk to somebody to create SR. Can anybody help? What are sequence of numbers after calling 800 number...

Thanks.

shantak 03-31-2008 04:27 PM

Well after you enter the receipt notice, automated service gives you the information and then you can press the option that you did not find any info and then it will connect to a rep and tell him to open an SR
Atleast this is what I did

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.

I also got the same message. NO FP after 2 SR & 1 info pass (case transferred from NSC to TSC).

MightyIndian 04-25-2008 06:49 PM

Finally received my FP notice today after 7 months. FP appointment on 5/12.

Did you make service requests for FP?

MightyIndian 04-29-2008 02:23 AM

No. Tried to call NSC a few times and got diffferent stories on why my fp notice is being dealyed. I gave up trying after my last call 2 weeks ago wherein an IO told me to wait until middle of May.

Mine is like your's - NSC - CSC - NSC. My I-485 receipt number starts with WAC. No FP notice yet. Who knows what they are doing.

mariusp 05-01-2008 07:00 PM

Got'em!
 
Guys, I finally got my notices today after 9 months. I called customer service on numerous occasions and opened 2 SR. Most recently, after my case was transferred to NSC, I called the service center on 04/28 and finally they scheduled me. I got an LUD on 04/28 after the call and another one on 04/29. Today I have the notices in my hand with an appointment date of 05/13.

If you're still waiting for your notices, call the service center, explain your situation and don't stop calling until you see an LUD on your case.

Yes, I got a FP notice for my daughter as she was born in India; and I had applied 485 for her as well.
She was 4 and a half years in Nov 07 when we got the notice. I am a July-Aug 07 filer.
Her FP notice came for a separate date though, diff from my wife's and mine.
I wd suggest you to call USCIS/ur attorney and check.

Hope that helps.

Open SR and Wait and Wait
 
Opening SR is like making a wish to god , which may come true

I opened SR when my wife lost her EAD in post , they gave me a 45 day time frame , nothing happened .. Called again and they open other SR , and asked again to wait for other 45 days ... I guess this cycle continues

I asked about my first SR while opening a second SR , reply they had no idea as they requested it with CIS , funny answer I also asked why there is a number if they have no idea ... By the way you will get letter from CIS stating that they received the request and they are processing it and you will hear from us with in 45 days .. If not call us ...ah ah

At last I was able to get EAD with in 5 days with the help of CISOmbudsman .

kannan 05-07-2008 07:21 PM

I got biometrics notice today. Will they take FP also on the same day or Will I get another notice for FP?

mariusp 05-07-2008 10:02 PM

They almost always take some kind of FPs. What I mean is that there are 3 biometrics codes. Code 3 is the most comprehensive, where they take your photo, signature and all ten fingers FP. Check your notice in the upper right corner, there should be a box that says "Code".

I always used to think (and still think) why they would issue different FP codes to different applicants even though they are all applying for same 485 petition?

Do different codes have different relevance?

danu2007 05-07-2008 10:44 PM

Write to Ombudsman
 
Please write a letter to CIS Ombudsman and they will open a case with USCIS to follow up and it will have results. I have done it once and I got the response from USCIS faster.

You can find more details here

Hi.. still no FP notice for me and my wife.. am a July 3rd filer with case transferred to TSC with a sept 10th notice date..

Have opened at least 3 SR's, called TSC several times (last was a month back) when the agent said we have sent a request to local ASC...

How long is is typically taking when IO says sent request to local ASC?

Any other ideas.. i have taking infopass as well and there was no use..

How many still waiting for a FP notice from July from TSC?
