No FP yet either.

rayoflight 05-19-2008 05:30 PM

Called 3/14 the first time and was told that FP would be scheduled. Never heard so called again on 5/9 and this time was told to callback after 60 days from the initial call.

I spoke with one rep who said that they are processing "June 29th" applications so you have to wait for your "Biometrics Appointment". I am kinda lost on this one.

What is the best number to reach the right Customer Service department alongwith the options to reach a live person to speak with who can actually schedule the Biometrics Appointment.

Am a July 2nd Filer - Actual Application filed on Sep 10th.

Cheers,

i am july 2nd 2007 filler and my pd is november 2005 row , my visa is current now so what will happen after my fingerprint to my file?
will they put back again somewhere storage place or they will finished my fille work?

mariusp 05-19-2008 06:34 PM

Try to call the service center directly, e.g. call at a time when the service center is open. The 1-800 number will transfer you automatically and you should hear something like "welcome to NSC/TSC, etc...". If the service center is closed and they transfer you to the national customer service something you can hang up because they're useless. All they know is to open SRs which get routed to the thrash bin.

I did exactly as in the post above, except for the part where I tell them I'm "depressed" (they probably figured I was anyway :)) and I got my FP notice three days later. I got a soft LUD right after the call, which is a good indication that the IO actually did something. If you don't get an LUD call again the next day, and the next day,..... eventually you'll run into someone who can help.

Got FP notice
 
I am a 2 July 2007 filer. Many SR's and calls later no FP.But I applied for EAD and AP renewal last week.I got the FP notice in mail today.

So I think that the renewal may trigger a FP notice.

Did you efile your EAP and AP renewal.

Aah_GC 05-19-2008 10:42 PM

Same boat guys. July 07 filer and have not received my FP yet. My lawyer thinks it should not be a problem at all, and I read of a case here who got his GC without ever fingerprinting.

Am about to renew my EAD and AP in a couple of week's time and that is the only hope left. I sincerely hope not receiving FP is not a major drawback.

God bless.

rtarar 05-20-2008 09:22 AM

I e-filed
 
I am a July 2nd Filer, and have not gone through FP till now.

I e filed on 11th May for EAD /AP renewal for myself and spouse.

LUD on 14 th May. Receipt notices received 16 th may.

Got FP notice only for myself on 19 th May.
(Still waiting for spouse's FP notice)

shantak 05-20-2008 11:52 AM

As you have efiled your EAD the FP you have received might not necessarily mean the FP for 485, it could be just for EAD. Gurus any comment!!

I just called and spoke with the CR. She told me that she would put me in the queue and to expect the appointment anywhere between 6-8 weeks but nothing happenned on the LUD side online.

Do I have to call back tommorow again?

Hi,
I filed mine on 27th July, 2007;
Do I need to apply for renewal now? How sooner or later we can apply for renewal?

You can file for renewal beginning 120 days before your EAD/AP expires.

Well in my opinion(although it doesn't count) an FP is an FP and it is for I-485 and EAD happens to use biometric information on the card.

I 'll try not to lose my sleep over it... chill!!!!!!!

All who are still waiting for FP, a suggestion based on my personal experience. If you are calling TSC, then it will not make any difference as you will not receive FP notice even after calling and waiting for months. I would suggest take Infopass and get the FP scheduled. For NSC, sometimes if you get nice IO they may schedule you right away and tell you the date of FP on the phone itself. This info is all based on my past experiences of reading various threads and calling TSC. So I am not sure what the trend is right now.

Hi,
Why did you have to pay $25? Is it for any official fees? Did you get a receipt for that 25$?
Just curious.

FP Notice
 
I have finally received my FP notice today for my I-485. My case was NSC-CSC-NSC. Never made any service request.

I have recently applied (paper based) for renewal of EAD and AP. Not sure if that triggered the FP notice.

I wish good luck to those who are still waiting for FP notice.

abhisam 07-15-2008 01:42 AM

when did u apply?

I applied for my EAD and AP renewal on the second week of May 2008. Again, I am not sure if EAD or AP renewal triggered the FP notice. Good luck to you.

thank you mhtanim. i would appreciate it if you could let me know when you recieve your ead..would like to track how long it takes. i am worried that i would not recieve by renewal before my current ead expires.

karanp25 07-15-2008 06:02 PM

Did you get your EAD/AP approval yet? I filed in 1st week of May, but nothing yet?

No I didn't get approval for either one yet. I have seen lots of people who filed after me and already got approval.

Wife's FP
 
I got my FP done in Jan 2008 but we never got the FP for my wife. We put in a SR with USCIS customer service.
We did get a response about the delays, but it is taking more than 60 days to get a response.

It has been 5 months since that response came.

We called USCIS customer service and they suggested to go to the fingerprinting location, along with original I-485 receipt notice and the letter stating the delay and see if the IO would take the FP the same day.

Lets see ....
