hi there, we applied for green card on November 19, 2015 in Chicago,IL (this date which they received our file) and have been in fingerprint on December 26,2015 and got my work auth on Fev 28,2016. but it has been 5,5 months we didnt get any mail for interview. is it normal time to wait or do i need to call USCIS?
Yes, perfectly normal. If you are in the Chicago area, the local field office is working on cases filed in July 2015, according to Feb processing times update. Be sure to notify USCIS of any change of address, but otherwise, try to be patient. Seek assistance from an immigration attorney if you have specific questions of eligibility or personal history.
What was the basis for that green-card application?
