Hello there,

Parent/Child Green Card Application

My interview is already scheduled. My application is based on family. I am a step-son of a US Citizen.
My question is if he is required to go to the interview? In the letter it states "If your elegibility is based on a parent/child relationship and the child is a minor, the petitioning parent and the child must appear for the interview'. Given that I am not a minor anymore (21 years old), should my step-dad still go?

Hi ...if we are sending I765 and I131 together.....can we submit just one g-1145 form or we need to submit 2 ?

Also can we submit all forms related to i765 and i131 in one envelope and combine them or we need to keep them in separate envelopes?

Received USCIS message stating “interview was scheduled dated Aug 20”. Received the online message on Aug 22. As on today (Aug 25), the letter is not received in hand. Priority date Dec 2012. Application received by USCIS Sep 2018. Appreciate it if you share your experience on:
How long it takes to receive the letter?
Any suggestion on interview questions?
Do I need to take my father (petitioner) during the interview?

Hi well this is my timeline
I was an F1 student
Got married last year
Filled for I-130, I-485, I-765 and I-131 at once along with the medical exam
Case received in February 4th 2019
I got the receipts and had my bio on the 28th of February
After that there was nothing but in February 20th I received a notice of action for additional documents which I sent a month later bc Of my grandmother’s passing which put a paused on my case
Case resume in April after I sent the requested documents then on June 12 my status changed to “ ready to schedule for interview”
Got the notices in July 19th
Got the combo card in July 20th got the social security 2 days later
August 17th my status changed to “ interview scheduled”
I got the notice today in the mail and my interview was scheduled for the 26th of September

Honestly I’m happy and nervous I’m glad the interview got scheduled but somehow I thought we’d have 2 months before the interview and my husband is all chilled out doesn’t understand why I’m so stressed out

guys while filling for I765 AND I131 FOR renewing EAD/AP, the questions that are not relevant to me can i just leave as blank ?

Also in I765, last 3 pages (5,6,7) are all about interpreter/preparer and additional information....can i just leave them blank as i have nothing to fill there?

Hi everyone, i really need help here. Im going desperate.

I filed papers and received notice of action dated May 16, 2019. My online account with uscis has said "Fingerprint fee received" since then, and my case is in the National Benefit Center. And it has already been 97 days. I tried to file an E-request for case out of normal processing time but it says they cant issue the request because my case is still within time.

I dont know what to do. I keep trying to call USCIS but the waitings are so long that eventually hangs uo by itself. Its been more than 3 months and I know the biometrics appointment is received usually 3-4 after the NOA.

Thank you to whoever has any information that can help!!

I have read the posts on this forum so many times to keep my hopes alive! So I know how important it is to pass it on.
I was a student on F-1 visa
Married last year
Filed on December 10th through the Chicago Lock box
Biometric in January
Then nothing. It was a long wait for 250 days
My EAD came 12 days ago and I had my interview yesterday!
Here are the things that I would have wanted someone to tell me!
The processing time on the USCIS website said processing 9o days!! WRONG!!

Unless you like signing in everyday, the USCIS app works very well!
I checked and refreshed every morning and evening!

It takes a looong time to process! Do not make any plans before you actually have your EAD/Green card approved or you will be disappointed!

I told the officer I worked illegally after I filed! It didn’t seem to be a problem!

Invest in yourself and your family during the waiting time! I learned how to cook and I’ve read books that makes me the best employee when I started working!

It’s gonna be a painful wait! But it is worth it! USA is the best country in the world!
I already have a job offer and a baby on the way!

I hope this helps someone!
If you have any question please let me know!
