Hi guys, timeline is in previous posts.

It's been 110 days since my interview and I have had no updates.

My lawyer (who filed everything) has said she will file for information when I reach my 120 days, as that is the time USCIS are allowed to make a decision after an interview.

She did say no visa numbers are available at the minute, and they will be available again from October. The only good thing is that my case has not been sent back to the NBC or Texas center where it originated at.

Anyone else in a similar situation?

Interview was in Fairfax, VA 05/30/19. Work based AOS.

Hi all,

I just wanted to run this by you all, since this forum is helping me stay grounded. Thank you for that.

When I submitted my application with my spouse our lawyer told us not to send any bonafide evidence other than photos and that it should all be taken to the interview. The lawyer is our close friend (so not officially representing us, just giving advice) and I don't think she ever had a case that didn't get approved. So that's interesting, compared to a lot of you who sent it all along.

Anyway, here's what we plan on bringing to the interview:

1. Car insurance (my spouse is on my insurance, I'm not on theirs though. I just never need to use their car)
2. Joint checking account (don't really use it that much, my spouse is a business owner, so needs their finances to be independent)
3. Utility and internet bills
4. Phone plan
5. Letter from the landlord stating we live together
6. Emergency contact form from my employer
7. Random mail to prove our address
8. 3 Letters from friends
9. Photos
10. Joint taxes (once we do them for 2019/2020)
11. Costco cards
12. Birthday cards we gave each other

Neither of us has 401k or retirement plan. My spouse has health insurance as a self employed person, but adding me onto it will make it way too expensive. We can get more letters from friends, but I don't know if that's necessary, we have pictures with a bunch of different people (both our families live abroad, so we haven't had a chance to all meet in person, just over Skype).

We've been together for just over a year and married for 5 months, so we don't have a whole lot more. We're not in a financial situation to afford traveling right now, so no plane tickets and such.

What do you all think? Any words of wisdom? Thanks in advance!

So my PD is March 12,2018 and was scheduled for an interview Aug 8,2019, I feel that I have everything they are asking for and now is a matter of getting well rested and prepared mentally for the interview tomorrow. I am bringing a lawyer just in case but I feel everything should be ok. I’ve got to say I have 2 previews arrests so my attorney warned me that the officer may not be able to approve me without supervisor review so it may take longer than usual. So I am prepared to wait as long as it takes but I am hopeful everything will be ok.
Good luck to everyone and I’ll update as soon as I am done with interview at NYC federal plaza

Hey guys! So what’s the deal with eads at the National Benefits Center? The day they received my paper work was April 8th. On Thursday I can finally submit a SR but my status for the ead has been stuck since then. No movement at all. Any April filers at nbc receive their yet? Hopefully our time is soon xx

Hello All,

I have received that NBC received my I485 in June 2019. And until now nothing has happened and I have no idea if it is transferred to local field office. Is there any way for us to know if it is transferred or is still at NBC. Do you have any idea for how long NBC waits to send the documents to local field office? Thanks!

Hi, guys!
Since we don’t have a lot of Miami experiences here I promised to keep you posted about my updates.
PD Aug 2017
Interview Nov 2018
Nothing since then.
We sent !6! SR inquires, we called 10 times, we tried to make an infopass appointment, nothing happened.
Yesterday I called again. I was told that my case is NOT out of the processing time because in Miami it takes 22-33.5 months since the PD to get an answer. I said that these time frames are changing all the time! When we applied it was 8-10 months!
A representative told me I should wait AT LEAST another 8 months and only after that I can call again or send SR. REALLY?! ARE THEY SERIOUS?! it’s been over 25 months!!!
I’m down and desperate. I can’t get a nice job, I can’t travel freely.. which is a huge part of my job! Still waiting for my renewed work authorization to be approved.. (since Feb 2019).
Guys, any advice? I want to try to ask a congressman for help, but I have no idea how. Do you have such an experience/tips? What’s the best way to contact him/her? Is it worth it?
I wish everyone a huge luck!
Let’s hope for the best!
