I wouldn't be alarmed because you've received the receipt notice, so the case is moving. Normally a month isn't very long to wait in the world of USCIS anyways. It will probably come any day. Nevertheless, I just checked three active I-751 applications at random out of curiosity for you. All three biometrics appointments were made within two weeks of receiving the receipt notice. (They are all California cases, which can make a difference.) I'd probably give it a few more weeks and then make an infopass appointment if it hasn't arrived.



when I type in receipt notice number into the it tells me •Your case can not be found at this time in My Case Status. why? im sure that number is right

Regrettably, that is actually not an uncommon response. I see it frequently on cases I've filed so I wouldn't be overly concerned. The fact that you have a receipt notice is proof to you that your case is processing.


Each office is different but several weeks does not seem out of the ordinary.
