My 485 Status didn't change from "Case was updated to show fingerprints were taken" to "Case is ready to be scheduled for an interview"
Hi All,

I had my biometric appointment in August 2020 at San Jose FO, CA. My status changed to "Case was updated to show fingerprints were taken" on the same day. I have seen many got their status change to "Case is ready to be scheduled for an interview" in couple of days after biometric day. However, it's been almost 11 months and my status is still "Case was updated to show fingerprints were taken". Any idea on where my case is stuck ?

I did got my EAD/AP documents after 4 weeks of biometric.

Hi All, PD Feb 2020 Interview date July 28, 2021
The interview is for GC based on marriage. Our 2 year marriage anniversary is on August 20. Can we request the interviewing officer to approve a 10-yr GC since our 2 year marriage anniversary is around 3 weeks away. Is this an option?
Any inputs are greatly appreciated. Thank you

Green finally approved after almost 2 years
Hi there, thank God, Allah is in control of everything.
I applied for green card marriage bases
Here is my time line:
Marriage date : 11/2018
PD: 10/2019
1st EAD card: 03/2020
1st interview: 11/2020
Interview went very well. The officer said if you don't here from us for 120 days you may reach out to us. I honestly was thinking I would get the GC in couple of days but anytime I check what I see is (Interview was completed and your case must be reviewed) for 7 months. On June 2020 I received a letter from USCIS calling me for Stokes interview. I was shocked. I asked the lawyer who was at the interview what happened? He said maybe the age difference by the way im 14 years older than my lovely wife.

Employment Based AOS
Hello All,
Hope you can help , I am on Sylum pending since Dec 2016 ,but on the same time I was able to get spopsrship from my employer and he filed AOS for me on July 2019 .
Yet no update on both cases.
Anyone know if the Employment based AOS can be held by the Asylum case since the Asylum is mostly more complicated to be approved ?

Hope you can share your thoughts or similar experience.

Need Help - How to fill last name?

I am preparing to file AOS forms(I-485,I-130 etc.) for my marriage based GC.
I am having a problem filling the last name. On marriage certificate, my wife (US citizen) chose to change my last name (beneficiary). So far, she hasn't changed to my last name yet on IDs (driver license, passport, social etc) and she is planning to do it later of the year. So far, all of her documents are with her original last name.
So, my question is when filling the forms, should we just fill her original last name or use new last name (my last name) even though she hasn't updated her IDs yet?
Please advise.
