  • Please help - Can I get my Biometric done before the scheduled date?

    Dear all,

    I just received my Biometric schedule notice today (09/03/2009), to find out my biometric will be taken on Sep. 25 or 28 respectively for I-485 and I-765. I feel it's kind of late.

    A post here caused my attention. Please see as follows:

    My timing is as below

    08/11/09 sent applications to Chicago through Fedex
    08/12/09 application received
    08/22/09 received NOA for I130 I785 and I485
    08/31/09 received biometrics appointment for 09/23/09
    09/01/09 biometrics done (walk in)

    when do u think i will receive the EAD and the interview date?
    Again you guys are great
    Looks like this application can get it done before the appointment date.
    Can I do the same? If so, how?

    Please help..... thank you all very much...!!

    I feel it's kind of late. - that's a not a valid reason. If you were out of town, that's another case.

      Can you make it a bit clear? Do you think I can call to reschedule?

        I am sorry. I guess, I need some ESL.

          Do you mean- can you go to the appointment before the scheduled date?
          If so, then it is possible. I have read countless experiences where people have gone to the schedule ASC before their actual date and done walk in biometrics.
          You might not be fortunate enough- though the worst that can happen is you turn up and they say no. Just be sure to go at a time when it wont be as busy.

            Sure, if you want to postpone your biometrics.

                Did they ask you why you wanted to do it earlier? thanks.

                I will be out of town next week for 3 months. So I think I have to either fly back on the appointment day or try to go to the local office to see if they let me do it there.

                  Mapleleaf,

                  No. They didn't ask any question at all about why I came before the appointment date. I was surprised. They just had my FP scanned and picture taken. Finished.

                  Good luck
