    Does it take much longer to get "Interview Ready to be scheduled" if I-130, and I-485 weren't filed concurrently?. We filed I-130 in December 2018, and were only able to file I485 in June 2019 after F2A became current (fingerprints in July). Case (I130) got transferred to NBC in September 2019, and haven't had any updates after that.
    Local Office: Seattle

    1 year is pretty generous. We applied on March 2018, no rfes, in less than a month we were ready to schedule for interview. Our interview took place on early September 2019...be prepared to wait at least 17 months. The reason why so many applicants from April and May got interview in the same month if because eb2 green cards were over by July and they only started processing them in October (start of the fiscal year). Basically wha ti am trying to say here is that it seems family based visas is not priority. They will only work on our cases once they have some available time. A December 2017 filer got his interview in Jan 2019. We all got excited thinking we would be around April but that didn’t happen. I didn’t find any other applicant hsving interviews since then until few folks from this thread started getting their interview invites for August and September.

    I want to know that too. I’m an August 2018 filer and it’s been a real long wait. I hope our interview comes up soon.

    Hello Seattle Filers,

    For those who have obtained their GCs already, I have a quick question:
    Has anyone applied to a trusted traveler program like Nexus, please share your experience on getting conditional approval and the in person interview.
    Any information will be gratefully appreciated.

    Cheers.

    Starting October EB2 green card became current again. Which based on my experience seems that the Seattle office will not work on family based green cards for a while. Unfortunately everyone who has not received an answer will have to wait months to get some news...

    You are correct. I was mistaken. What I found on further research is that if you have been married for more than two years at the time of approval you may receive a non conditional 10 year card. If you have a conditional card unfortunately even if your second anniversary was one day after approval date you get a conditional card and have to wait 90 days of export to remove conditions.
    Got it. Have to wait 21 months. Lets do that later!

    vv123 Hi there, an ROC application needs to be filed with another payment for the I-751 and biometric services at month 21 before the 2-year conditional GC expires. So take note of your date and make sure the I-751 is filed within the 90-day period before expiration date of your GC.
    Cheers.
    Thanks for the reply. Aj9188 just mentioned we can file for ROC as soon as we have been married 2 years.

    From what I read, the process should start 90 days before the 2-year conditional GC expires (not related to 2-year marriage):

    I think we will have a permanent GC after two years automatically (if still in marriage) right? Is this thread for remove the condition earlier or just for 2 years later? Thanks!

    Hello - you have to file to remove conditions. It is not automatic.
