Why would he keep that? Wouldn't we need that for a future application?

Im sorry, but I can't understand this part. Do you mean that you did biometric twice?

Did you explain this to him? That just shows how important it is to email KCC (note to self).

With this newbie in charge of Chicago's DV cases, no wonder why I don't have my interview/bio letters in my hand till this moment.
1. You don’t need a future EAD if you’re already a LPR.
2. The IO is not responsible for scheduling the bio or the interview, so the newbie isn’t necessarily the reason you have no bio and IL as of now.

Thanks for your response mom

1. You don’t need a future EAD if you’re already a LPR.
But what if I don't get approved on time and want to apply again later.
2. The IO is not responsible for scheduling the bio or the interview
So when on "NBC_LOCKBOX_FO" tab of the spreadsheet it says FO schedules the interview, it does not necessarily mean that person is the IO?

Strange then, while country send their packages to Chicago. They process everything here.
Lockbox is separate from the FO


So when on "NBC_LOCKBOX_FO" tab of the spreadsheet it says FO schedules the interview, it does not necessarily mean that person is the IO?
almost certainly not, whoever is scheduling needs to know all cases being scheduled, calendars of all IOs etc. they will get allocated upcoming cases among available IOs, the IOs will not choose who to interview when. scheduling will be an admin function.

Thank you! That makes perfect sense. A quick follow up: when I file an FO inquiry to get my interview scheduled, is that again the same administrative personnel who sees my message rather than the IO?

EDIT: and how about the expedite requests?

1. Yes, there won’t be an IO assigned yet

2. I am not sure, i would suspect that an IO or supervisor needs to evaluate the merits of the request - maybe mom can chip in here

Hi everyone! I'm EU25*** and I have been following this awesome forum for a while now. I just wanted to let you know my notice receipt was made on June 29, the USCIS tracking number is stuck on "Fingerprint fee was received". But I just received this week a notice made on July 12 that it is not necessary for me to come have my biometrics done as they already had them from a previous green card case. Do you guys know if that will make things faster? Is there any positive in contacting a Tier 2 agent at this point? Thanks so much!

Hi @Blade_
I agree with Mom & Susie’s comments about him earlier. He’s probably new and someone else does the final approval of the case. He did mention that not many DVs are processed through Chicago.

My answers to your questions:
The EAD cards that were taken were expired so they are not if any use to us anymore anyway so I didn’t have an issue handing them over, just wasn’t aware that we had to. I have a scanned copy of each of them if required in the future (maybe if you haven’t done this, scan yours for future reference if you need them).

We had photos and each index finger for biometrics done in his office which was possibly to prove that we were the same people who did the biometrics? I’ll be honest, he was very vague about this which is why it’s obvious someone else was going to approve the case and not him. I have no idea about his comments…he just didn’t seem to be very knowledgeable abiut

KCC - I tried to explain who KCC is and what they do but again, he was a bit lost and basically said he had all the information he needed.

I asked the questions as I had seen it as a recommendation on this forum but I didn’t want to argue with him and cause any issues.

I do wonder how each case is processed (as I’m sure everyone does and am thankful that ours has been quite smooth compared to some. It’s obvious each case is very unique and unless we were in their shoes we will probably never 100% understand their thought process.

I appreciate all of your comments on this forum @Blade_ as you have been most helpful. I wish you all the best and will continue looking out for your updates here.
 
The AOS spreadsheet has simplified this by listing out the supporting documents one could use for the I-134. Take a look at the “AOS Package” tab/section of the spreadsheet.
Alright thank you. Is it okay that I did not submit it with the package but plan to bring it to the interview ? Or do I need to send to someone before the interview. I apologize if this question is redundant
 
I’m sorry for the double post, but for the government ID part can I copy it and bring that as my sponsor would not be attending interview with me or would I need the physical ID

Take it with you.

I just find 16 miss calls from number 410-779-5194, starting from 7:30 am from Baltimore MD. left a voice message saying you have an interview today, I will call you again!!!! I feel it's a scam but it's from the same city as my FO office? The number now is invalid? My case status show fee received

I feel like 16 calls is a lot so it could be that you never received your letter and your interview was today, but I think the officer would have let you know who they are when they called. Did they introduce themselves in the message they left? Have you ever asked an agent if your interview has been scheduled?

I think it's possible that you missed your interview. Call USCIS and find out if it was supposed to be today and you never received a letter.

I honestly don't know. But if you don't call USCIS, you will never know.

The first call was around 7:30 am, I know the field office should be closed now? I will call the FO office I gt from google: 18003755283
That is USCIS number, not the field office. Yes, call them immediately. Let them know about the phone call. I really hope this is just a mistake because if you missed the interview without rescheduling it first, your case is considered abandoned.

If you google the number that called you, it does look like it's a scam. I wonder how this person would know that you have a pending case though. That's one big coincidence.

I'm trying to connect with a live agent but I don't think is real. My case status shows the Finger fee received. I did a bio on July 12 and didn't received a ny letter for the interview.
My case status was never updated to show that something was sent to me. I am not saying that this is real, but it sounds very strange to me.

I did chat with a live agent who said" I see you contacted us about the status of the appointment on 07/08/2021. The appointment hasn't been scheduled at this time. Once the appointment has been scheduled you will be notified with the date, time, and location"

At least now you know for sure.
