            Atique Rahman,

            I did not get chance to check this # yet because at this time no one is working, but when I called few min ago, recorded message did not indicate if it is still the FBI office. Try it in the morning. Hopefully it was not changed, this posting down is very old. Good luck.

              Hi Atique Rahman.

              I got some FBI number for you I believe that might help.


              FBI Name Check Primer

              Disclaimer:

              I am not a lawyer and I cannot be held responsible for accuracy of the information below.
              Please use this document at your own risk.

              Contents

              • Section I – Name Check Explained
              • Section II – Contact Info
              • Section III – Possible means to expedite name check
              Key:

              Items in BLUE are those items about which I am making an intelligent guess and cannot be
              validated.

              Section I – Name Check Explained

              The Name Check’s official name is the National Name Check Program (NNCP). It is
              synonymous with FBI Background Check, Security Check etc. The National Name Check
              Program (NNCP) has the mission of disseminating information from the FBI's Central Records
              System in response to requests submitted by federal agencies, congressional committees, the
              federal judiciary, friendly foreign police and intelligence agencies, and state and local criminal
              justice agencies. The Central Records System (CRS) contains the FBI's administrative, personnel
              and investigative files. The NNCP has grown exponentially, with more and more customers
              seeking background information from FBI files on individuals before bestowing a privilege -
              Whether that privilege is government employment or an appointment; a security clearance;
              attendance at a White House function; a Green card or naturalization; admission to the bar; or a
              visa for the privilege of visiting our homeland; more than 70 federal and state agencies regularly
              request an FBI name check. The USCIS is one of its biggest customers.

              The name checks are handled at FBI Headquarters at Washington DC.

              In my understanding a name check consists of running the applicant’s name and date of birth over
              multiple government records – not commercial records like credit reports etc. This will tell the
              agency if there has been any activity on your name ever i.e. if you were a convicted criminal, a
              witness in a federal case, a person who was investigated etc.

              Name checks for Naturalization was initiated after Sept 11 2001. I am unsure if the program
              existed for Naturalization applicants before that time.

              Many people report incredible lengths of delays with name checks. The reason for this is that the
              system (computerized system) is unable to conclude weather or not you are a person of interest.
              An analyst has to then intervene. The reason could me multi fold like you having a very common
              name (Asian last names for example) or your name matches that of a person that FBI dealt with
              in the past etc. This could take 1 day or over a year. Another reason for delays is that this
              department is grossly understaffed.

              I think that the name check requests are sent after a finger print result is received. I just happened
              to notice this with many applicants.

              Name check requests are automatically initiated by the Service Center and are done for all
              applicants. There is another check called the CIA check that is not done for Naturalization
              applicants. CIA check is done for I-485, Amnesty and other applicants.


              When the system searches for your name and does not find any indices, it returns “NORECORD” as a result. This is what majority of people will have for a status. A “No-Record”
              means “No-Objection” from the part of the FBI for Naturalization.

              However presence of a record by itself is not always adverse. Just means you have been involved
              somehow with something that FBI has a record on.

              The Records name checks are supervised by Agent David Hardy who is the Chief of the
              Record/Information Dissemination Section in the Records Management Division (RMD).
              Mr.Hardy’s boss is the Assistant Director, Records Management Division is William Hooton.

              Section II – Contact Info

              Every single phone and fax number mentioned is available on the internet – if you know where to
              look. I have just arranged them into one useful chunk.


              Please use these phone numbers and fax numbers (especially the Asst Director/analysts) with
              discretion. Believe me you don’t want to nag the FBI too much or enrage them -in your own
              interest.

              You can use info to request for an expedite for almost all applications handled by the
              service center.

              All expedite requests are reviewed on a case-by-case basis, and are granted at the discretion of the
              Service Center Director. The criteria are as follows:

              • Severe financial loss to company or individual.
              • Extreme emergent situation.
              • Humanitarian situation.
              • Nonprofit status of requesting organization in furtherance of the cultural and social
              interests of the United States.
              • Department of Defense or National Interest Situation (Note: Request must come from
              official United States Government entity and state that delay will be detrimental to our
              Government.)
              USCIS error.
              • Compelling interest of USCIS.
              If a response to the expedite request is not received within 72 hours, the request is denied. The
              application or petition will then undergo normal processing.

              General Expedite Procedures By Fax

              The VSC has always been strict with respect to approving requests for special processing.
              Individuals who are seeking expeditious handling can FAX the Center at (802) 527-4816 to
              request an expedite.

              The fax line is available 24 hours a day. Expedite requests are reviewed Monday through Friday

              Section III – Possible means to expedite name check

              This section is based on my learning and guess work only. Don’t take it to the bank

              1. File a FOIPA request at the time of filing your N400. Since both requests (FOIPA and
              Name Checks) are handled by the same RMD department, I assume if they trace your
              record once, the second time will be easier. Also in case of unusual delays (over a few
              months) you can appeal with this in hand.
              2. Fax a name check request monthly and call the voice line every so often. This will
              familiarize your name with them.
              3. Write to Asst Dir William Hooton and explain your urgency in the best way you can.
              4. In case of unusual delays (over a few months), contact your Congressman and ask him/her
              to
              a) Request for an expedite from the FBI
              b) Write to the Congressional Asst Dir, Eleni Kalisch to appeal
              c) Have them contact an FBI legislative liaison and check on your case often

              5. Never lose hope. Ultimately the system works, its just slow for some of us

                Thanks a bunch Bonehead. I sure appreciate your kind effort. I called that number but office was already closed by then. Therefore I E-mailed my request ( Answering message gives an option for E-mail) to them. Hopefully I'll hear something from them soon. By the way in that mail all I mentioned is my full name & date of birth. Is that all they need ? Do you know anything since you talked to an agent over the phone ?

                    Atique rahman,

                    No I did not talk with an FBI agent, I had intention to do so but after my last conversation with Immigration officer I just decided to wait since he told me that FP clearance takes between 2-6 months. Well, he was wrong and I am happy for that because I did my last FP's code 1 (all 10 fingers) 09-20-05, my I-485 was approved on 10-20-05. If you do have a reason to call FBI do so, however if you recently had done code 1 or 3, just wait couple of weeks or call USCIS first. Can you please post your timeline?

                      RD I-485 Nov,2000ND I-485 Dec,2000
                      Case transfered to NSC from TSC ( back then I was instructed to file at TSC by an immigration officer) on June,2002.
                      RD (transfered NSC) Dec,2000
                      ND June,2002RFI done March,2005, BIO code 2 on July,2005
                      BIO code 1 10/14/2005.
                      After that still waiting....................
                      By the way I E-mailed FBI about the fingerprint deal & received a reply mail today asking about my A#. Cause in the mail all I wrote was my full name & date of birth. But as they said (sounds very polite) We'll be glad to inform you, your finger print deal if you let us know your A#. I think that was very quick response cause just yesterday I mailed & received their reply today.

                      Well, so by looking at my time what do you think? Am I close? I bet I am unless USCIS send me any RFE. Well, I never been out side of this country since I got here on 1992. Had applied for RTD on 2000 but that was never used. All never got arrested nor any criminal record beside traffic tickets (I know that's no problem).
                      Therfore I belive I shouldn't wait long for my freedom (GC).
                      But than again USCIS ain't no telling !!! Well, atleast I feel good thinking about you my brother your pain is gone. Although you had to suffer a lot like all but you finally reached at your destination .
                      Enjoy your new life my friend & change your name cause as you said "BONEHEAD" you are certainly not that at all.
                      Best wishes.
                      Atique.

                          That E-mail Add is liaison@leo.gov. Make sure you clearly address your full name, date of birth & your alien #. You can also mention when you were finger printed (date) & which ASC (location).
                          I am sure they will reply your response promptly.
