Hello Everyone,

I hope everyone is staying safe. I have submitted my family based (My US CITIZEN WIFE FILED FOR ME) I-130 and I-485 on april 16, 2018, got case received notice (Case number starting with MSC) after that no updates for two years. Finally after two years on April 09, 2020 my I-485 case status was changed to MY CASE IS READY TO BE SCHEDULED FOR AN INTERVIEW and now i have not received any notice yet. In first week of july 2020 LONG ISLAND, NY field office was processing cases of last week of January 2018 and suddenly last week that processing time changed to july 2017.. I am so worried now, i don't know what's going on, how long more i have to wait... Anyone has any idea why USCIS processing times changed...

Please advise if someone know anything.

Inquiry is not updated

Last monday (07/27/2020) i made an inquiry about a notice i didn't receive, it was the approval notice. The next day it said "On July 28, 2020, your inquiry about an approval notice that you did not receive, referral number SR YYYY YYYY YYYY XX, was assigned to an officer for response." and the next day, on july 29, it was updated to the same thing: "On July 29, 2020, your inquiry about an approval notice that you did not receive, referral number SR YYYY YYYY YYYY XX, was assigned to an officer for response."

On july 31, my case was updated again like "Case approved" and that they will send me the notice by mail, but the inquiry never updated anymore, is it normal?
I had send inquiries before and it normally says "we sent a response to your request" and "your request was completed". But this one doesn't say that.

Interview date sent in mail.
Hello everyone,

My interview date was cancelled (status change) on March 18th, 2020 due to COVID- it was scheduled on March 25th, 2020.

On July 21st, 2020, I got a status change saying my interview was scheduled, and I got the letter in the mail on July 29th, 2020. It is now scheduled on Aug 24th, 2020.

This is just a heads up for everyone- I believe USCIS they are sending out dates to people. Please feel free to reply to this thread if your date was cancelled due to COVID and is rescheduled again. Also, mention your city and type of application. Mine is Marriage based GC- AOS pending- San Diego- Nov 2018.

This is just to get an idea if USCIS is really sending out dates and are re-opening.

Thanks and good luck!

I130 RFE requiring sibling proof
I am a U.S citizen, started the immigration process for my brother in 2012. Last month, we received an RFE requesting evidence of me and my brother born to my mother. We were asked to submit early school/hospital records to establish that we are siblings but we dont have any of those. We are getting affidavits ready. Not sure if those affidavits will be enough? Papers also mentioned we could submit voluntary DNA evidence. Anyone has any similar experience? Need help in figuring out how to establish the relationship. Time is running out as my papers got to me too late because of the address change. Thanks in advance.

What is the next step after submitting I-130?NYC filler
Hi. I recently submitted I-130 for my mother (I am a USC)who resides outside of US. Wanted to know couple things.

-How long does it usually takes the whole process for parents who are outside of US?
-What does the following mean ? "6 Months to 8 Months U.S. citizen filing for a spouse, parent, or child under 21 November 29, 2019" Does it mean they are currently processing the applications that were received in November 29?

-What is the next step after submitting I-130?
