March 2021 AOS fillers please get in here.
By - meilyn22
Same boat. Documents delivered 1st of March @ TX lockbox. No receipt and checks haven’t been cashed.
Wow! That's insane! I have seen people who filed on the 8th of March who've recieved their receipt.
It’s crazy. I am just being hopeful that it will come soon.
My application was received on March 2, 2021, and still haven’t heard anything... premium processing. Not even the checks have been cashed
At this point I believe it's based on the lockbox and processing center dealing with your case. People who filled on the 8th are starting to get their receipt. Dang! The anxiety is something else 🤣🤣
At that point I don’t even know why I did premium processing.
sent on march 4
got received notice and mails april 1
filed in mid-March, package received 03/15, PD 03/16. Notice date 04/10, receipts of 130,131,485,765 all came in 04/22, only 485 status shows fingerprint fee was received with the rest Case received. Marriage AOS, NBC
Hi! So far, I believe my process has been a lucky one out of many I have been seeing so far...
EB2-NIW - SRC (Texas Service Center) - ROW
FO - Orlando, FL
PD: March 9th, 2021 (filed I-131, I-765, I-140 and I-485 concurrently)
Update to Fingerprint Fee Received: April 2nd
Receipt Letter: April 9th
Biometrics Letter: April 27th
Biometrics Appointment: May 21st
Anxiously waiting for bio appointment to come and really hoping for the best and fastest outcome 😄
That's pretty fast. I filled on March 12 2021. Nothing so far.
Hey, how was the bio appointment and has your case changed since then? Any news on an EAD? Thanks!
The appointment was just fine, faster than what I had imagined. 485 was updated with fingerprints, however 765 stayed on “Case received” :( 46 days without any news
Hope you receive it soon!
I got my Bio appointment for next month!
That's awesome. I received a RFE. Took me two weeks to respond. I am still waiting right now.
Good luck! You’ll get it soon!
My I-485 case was updated last 07/19/2021 ready to schedule for interview Field office in Reno Nevada. No EAD/AP combo card yet. I-765 and I-131 already 4 months as of today. Still waiting for any EAD or interview coming.
Looks like you are gonna get your green card before the EAD.
I got my bio for August 27th. Just waiting for the letter in the mail. I got the I693 deficiency notice today in the mail.
2 days after my biometrics I got my deficiency notice for I-693 then 10 days after that my I-485 updated to ready to schedule for interview. I tried to expedite my EAD before biometrics but it was denied.
That's awesome. I expedited my EAD, but I haven't received any response till date. I contacted my congressman and I bet what he did triggered my case. I am on the left, but this republican congressman responded to me the next day after I sent him an email. He even followed up with USCIS response to him the same day my status changed.
I am seriously amazed at his effectiveness since republicans don't really cherish immigration that much. He seems like a very nice guy.
I sent Mitt Romney a message one time and it took him 7 months to respond to me 🤣. Maybe Romney gets more messages in his email. I don't know, but this Congressman is great.
What is your timeline and field office?
PD: March 12 2021. RFE: May 23th 2021. RFE Response: June 11 l 2021. Biometric Update: July 27th 2021. Biometrics: August 27th 2021.
Field Office: NBC.
My I765 was transferred online though.
That's good that you are scheduled for your biometrics. Good luck 🙏
You too man. I am gonna attempt an early walk in when I receive the letter. I know you might be wondering how I knew the date for my bio without receiving the letter first. I saw it on the message USCIS sent to my congressman.
The biometrics will only take 15 minutes. It took 10 days after my biometrics that my I-485 has been updated. I got worried for my I-765 and I-131 as they didn't change status so I chat a live agent and she told me biometrics were taken on both.
I must add that USCIS lost my I765, so I had to resend it one month later.
Sent payment to lockbox March 9th. Payment taken April 4th. Biometrics May 21st. Ead and combo card received July 8th. Now just waiting for my green card appointment-hopefully soon. Employment based! I know they will ask for medical rfe but no update yet!
Hi there December 2020 filer here. I received my digital notifs of “we received your case” along with the receipt number mid January. The physical mail took another two weeks to come lol.. I’d say within the next few weeks you’ll hear! Best of luck!
I mailed my wife’s marriage based green card AOS application on March 12 to the Chicago PO Box using certified mail. It was delivered on March 16. Have heard nothing. Checks haven’t been cashed. The return receipt hasn’t even been scanned into the USPS system yet. I’m thinking that means no one has even picked it up from the post office yet? Anyone have any experience using return receipts?
Edit: Mailed I-485, I-130 I-130A, I-864, and I-765 in one packet with supporting documents, table of contents on cover with index tabs, and checks paper clipped to the front.
I mailed mine on the 10th and it got delivered to the lockbox on the 13th. I checked the tracking information for the return receipt, but it didn't start updating until 4th of April. Right now it says it has departed USPS facility, but it doesn't tell me when it would arrive. I think they don't give much priority to the return receipt, but I am sure you will start receiving tracking information in a few days.
Anyways, I filed the same documents as you. Since 13th of March was a Saturday, I bet my case would be moved to 15th of March. This means that we are really close on this journey lol. I guess we just have to wait right now. When my check is cashed I will tell you, but please do the same. At least we can help each other to know what's going on since we filed the exact same thing to the same lockbox.
Sounds good. I’ll keep you updated
I’m finally showing activity on my return receipt. It just got scanned into the USPS system.
Sorry, I forgot to tell you. I received my receipts on the 7th of April and my NOA today. Only problem is that it doesn't include receipt number for I765.
We sent ours (work based) to Texas Lockbox on March 2. Got delivered on March 4, and today (04/06) we got in the mail our receipts. Our case is being processed by MSC in Missouri, even though we sent everything to Texas. Don’t know why this is happening, but we’re happy!
That's awesome. So USCIS is transferring cases to other processing centers without huge backlogs. So don't worry about it. It took you exactly 1 month and 2 days to get your receipts. Happy for you 👏👏👏👏
What Lockbox did you send your application? You don't need to worry, they will send your receipt soon. At least your card was charged. For me, my application was delivered on the 13th of March as well, but they haven't charged me..
Congrats! You will receive a mail or text message if you filled the G-**** documents.
Yesterday was (04/07).
I hope so too. My application got delivered on the 13th of March at 2AM. No receipt or anything yet. Congrats, it's a waiting game for you now 🤣🤣
They just updated to 90 days now.
90 days for receipts?
So I received my receipts today from Emma. I didn't receive any receipt notice via email or text messages and the fees haven't been cashed yet.
How did you obtain it?
I contacted Emma and I spoke to a live agent.
Thank you. I will try it
I did that, but my application is still not showing in the system.
What did they ask for to check if your application was in the system? Just your name?
First and Last name, date of birth, address.
Thanks! Unfortunately, they didn’t have my application yet so I’ll just have to keep waiting 😞 I’m seeing people from March 11-13 getting their receipts. I sent mine in on March 18th so hopefully I’m next.
Ohh yea, maybe before this week runs out you may get your receipt. Keep chatting with them everyday though.
Have you got receipt number or receipt notice yet?
No, still haven’t and I’ve seen people getting it when they sent at the same time as me (March 18th) 🥲
I sent it on march 8 and uscis got it on 12 march and still have not received anything 😥
Did you send to Chicago lockbox? Ugh hate that it’s so random :/
Yes i have sent to chicago lockbox and i do ask from uscis every morning through emma but they still dont have my application in system
Same, it’s unfair. I don’t get how they tell us to wait 60 days but other people with later dates are getting receipt numbers and we are not.
Have you got any news from uscis yet?
Hey they tried to take money out of my account and my bank thought it was fraud 🙃 but I sent in a new application. Hope you got yours!
>3/15, PD 03/16. Notice date 04/10, receipts of 130,131,485,765 all came in 04/22, only 485 status shows fingerprint fee was received with the rest Case received. Marriage AOS, NBC
have you hear anything yet?
I am in the same boat. Mine was delivered to Lockbox March 19th. I have confirmation via email from USPS that my package did get down there. I haven't heard anything from uscis and they just told me to email the lock box in Chicago... So basically, I have to wait another month for a response from lockbox to see where my case it... This is ridiculous. I am so frustrated with the immigration system right now.
Sorry about that, I believe your form may have been lost or something of that sort. You should've received your receipts by now.
Anyways, the lockbox doesn't take 1 month to call you back. I sent them an email and they called me back in like a week. Maybe it's case by case though.
The lockbox doesn;t have a phone number. It is through email.
Does anybody got their biometrics appointment?
Anyone from Las Vegas got their bio ?
People are getting their biometrics already. I received an RFE, which I have responded to.
I filed AOS through marriage in March 22nd. I have biometrics appointment in 2 weeks.
What's your service center?
Sent to Chicago. NBC is service center.
Same here. I received RFE, no response for 25 days now.
What was the RFE for?
Affidavit of support. I just got another sponsor to avoid the troubles.
Hi!! Great news ! What is your field office please?
Sent to Chicago. Field office is NBC. Bios in Houston
I know of some March 21 aos filers who have got their biometrics notice (in mail per Emma). Anyone else here with similar news ? My date is 3/25 and I know a 3/16 case who got it.
I filed last week of March. Got my biometrics August 06 and my case change to interview scheduled. Sent my case to Chicago (family based)
I got my biometrics 4th of August and it says "case ready to be scheduled for interview." I haven't heard anything since then.
Congrats to you.
What's your field office?
