  • I want to post this here in case it helps anyone:

    I have talked to 4 lawyers about our options when GC case is pending for too long.

    They all said , anything less than 1 yr waiting doesn't have any legal action. So we can potentially file a lawsuit after case is pending for more than 1 yr.

    I got different quotes from lawyers ranging from $3300 to $5000 to file a lawsuit and force USCIS to make decision on a case.

      On what conditions they gonna build the case if the USCIS website states that it can take up to 43.5 month? Interesting

        Hi, I remember you filed your application on April, 2020, right? If so, it is almost months.
        I think you could ask for help first to your local house of representative and senator office. You could find their office website and write your request to follow up GC with USCIS.
        At least it is much more useful than you call to USCIS.

          Hi, did you have positive feedback about representative or senator office help with GC cases?

            No. I have not sent request to congressmen, because my filing time is not so long.
            If they think your time is normal, they may not help you.
            I know, in CA, the senior Senator Dianne Feinstein posted that her office will help follow up with background check lasting one year.

              yes you’re right I filed this year , so I’m not going to hire any lawyer soon but wanted to be a step ahead and at least know the costs.

              From my experience US Congressman or congresswoman won’t help much and they get general answers too. I’ll try for sure but I’m not going to wait 45 months!

              I wait until few months after new President to see how things are going. Then maybe after 14 months of waiting I’ll hire lawyer.

                As my consideration, delay may caused by backlog of FBI background check.
                For usual, we need to make a biometric appointment with ASC one by one. So every week FBI will receive request and they could process it as long as received
                But due to COVID 19, USCIS decided not to make fingerprint for every one but use old fingerprint so they sent a big package together on 07/17. at least thousands of applicants.
                So FBI name check program is overloaded.

                    Really? I have not heard about Feb 2020 has a bunch old fingerprint usage. At that time, the pandemic had not spread in US.

                      Yes and i saw a lot of people had the same FP got done in End of feb 2020. And i got really excited as my lawyer said that it would take around 3-4 weeks from the FP to get you GC approved . But then pandemic happened.

                        What is the source of your post? Nebraska is processing cases faster than Texas, so how this apply to your post?

                          I said, from my consideration.
                          You could search case numbers in USCIS case tracker app. You will find many applicants fingerprints were taken on 07/17/2020. Including me.
                          Then I got a letter that show USICS would use my old fingerprint to case and no need to go to ASC for biometric appointment.
                          I only search for NSC, no TSC. Because TSC is quite different from NSC, I do not know it.
                          But, They approved more Refugees cases than Asylees cases. It is from USCIS quarter work performance published by 11/16.
                          For 2nd & 3rd quarter of 2020, about 8000 asylee I485 received and 5000 refugee cases received
                          For approval, 5000 asylees cased approved and 8000 refugee cases approved.
                          So, refugee cases inventory is down to 15K around but asylee case inventory is up to 54K.

                              Refugees apply for asylum in their own countries, asylees apply for asylum in USA.

                                Refugees are who applied US protection outside US, they will checked and certified by USCIS and State of Department. Not all of countries are qualified for refugee. I think some of them are from UNHCR.
                                Asylees are who applied asylum in US and approved by USCIS. They have to enter US and they applied asylum.
                                For Refugees, Their GC category code is RE6/7/8. For Asylees ,their GC category code is AS6/7/8
                                That is the difference.
