Press 1 (for english),
press 2 (for existing case),
press 6 (for case statues etc),
then press 1( for knowing your receipt no.),
enter the receipt # to get the automated response saying blah blah blah and also at the end saying this is the most upto date information on your case and our customer the same info national customer service agents have (i totally agree with this).
Then choose to continue to the next step "press 3" . choose 3
Listen to the options-
Option 4 "if you feel if you submitted together and one of the applications is left out and not processed (don't remmember the exact message text ..but something about companion case "

I got through to a lady who said that the security check is not over. I asked her whether Name check nad Sec Check is the same? She said she can't give out specifics. My FP which was done is 1st week of Aug was received by them in the beginning of Aug that is what the present message on their site says.

Any luck on your side?

Hi Folks,

Please see my signature, does this give any clue about name check being completed. My message still says FP received dated 20th September.

Any insight is appreciated.

Thanks

Just called the Customer Representative via 800-375-5283 with option 1,2,6,1,EAC#, 1,3,4,1, but got no new info about my case. However, I was told to call back to check my status after Nov. 27, 2005.

Info about my I-485
EB-2 (NIW)
Priority Date -- 06/2000
RD -- 08/27/2005
FP -- completed on 09/15/2005
LUTs -- 09/15, 09/17, 09/27, 10/20

Thank you very much, Assur and 485_stuck, for letting me know the contact info.

Fox, may I ask how you can keep a PD 2000 of NIW while submitting your 485 only recently? It took them 5 years to approve your 140? That looks unreal.

This is NOT correct. You can only speak to National Service Center (in which they know EXACTLY what you see on the web. You CANNOT talk to any specific center.

I had an approved I-140 in July 2001. Unfortunately, my former employer bankcrupted in the late 2001. After my I-485 was filed, USCIS kept my former PD.

Actually, many I-485 applicants are in the same situation as mine. That's why the processing time is moving at a reasonable speed after the retrogression. Just my personal opinion.

Fox12, I don't wanna get your hope too up. But what happened to me was I called VSC, and they would not tell me anything that i had not known. But I was also asked to call back in two weeks. ( The lady I spoke to told me so very firmly.) Then 5 days later, I recieved my I485 approval. So I would say, it is a good sign.

I still don't understand how you can be transferred to VSC. I did exactly what it says and I asked the rep. who answered if he was from VSC - he said no. I asked if I can be transfered to VSC - he said no.

You can however be transfered to an immigration office but that doesn't mean you are speaking with VSC...I did that once and the immigration office I spoke to was in CA, so I really believe you are missled...you cannot speak with VSC directly.

Called NSC and no use.

Friends,

Based on the above discussions I called and spoke to a rep from the NSC to get an update on my Name Check status, the lady said she cannot see any informatin regarding Name check processing and asked for the zipcode where I live and she gave a FBI telephone number and asked to check with them for my name check status.

She said she could not even say whether name check request was even sent to FBI or not... I'm more confused now.

TIA

Do you know if she meant they're working on FP done on Sept2005 or I-485 filed on Sept2005?
I called a couple of weeks ago and was told to call back after a month. I had my FP done on Sept2005.
Thanks.

Contacting VSC

Folks : This is a cheatsheet I found and is the easiest way of contacting immigration officer:

800-375-5283 - Select language - then press 2, 6, 2, 4 at the prompts, press 0.

I'll tell you exactly why - because say we are all surprised and PD becomes available for thos of us who wait 4 years (or more), and the name check is not completed - the fact the PD is current won't help you a bit. What will do then - rip your hair off your haid, saying "God damn...so now when my PD is current I am stuck with name check!"....and then, by the time your name-check will be cleared, your PD will go back 4 years again....

So, I don't know how old are you, but I can tell you from life experience - you don't sit back and relax...you need to make sure every proces is finished and ready for the next step. I better get upset about back-log in name check NOW than rip my hair off if/when PD becomes current and look how it passes by me because name check wasn't ready...
