What is the next After the USCIS Biometrics Appointment??

Westbury, NY |

Jan 17,2013 : The Application I-485 Sent to USCIS in Lockbox

Jan 22,2013 : Application Received ( Got the confirmation by the USPS )

Feb 04, 2013 : Got the confirmation receipt from the USCIS but needs to allow a few weeks to be visible at the USCIS website said a USCIS agent through the phone to me.

Feb 05,2013 : Got my Appointment notice for Feb 14,2013 at 8:00 Am at the USCIS office .

Can somebody tell me how long it will take to get everything done.
PS : I didn't file any EAD because i didn't know that. Is it a problem? Will they issue it to me without filed the form with the I-485? Should i send it now ?

Thank you!

  1. Adjustment of Status may take anywhere from 4-8 months. If you did not file for your EAD, you may file for it now, but you will have to pay separate filing fees for it.

    Contact attorney Gintare Grigaite, Esq. at 201-471-7989, located in New York and New Jersey. Answers on AVVO do not constitute legal advice and do not form attorney-client relationship. Always consult an attorney for a legal advice.


  2. You wait for the interview.

  3. You will not get EAD, unless you filed for it. If you filed everything in right way, next you will have an interview.
