I already submitted my form i 485, i 130,i 131and other applicable forms for adjustment of status last year october or november i think. My work permit and adv parole was approved mid december. But my i 485 still says till today"as of november 7th 2014 we are ready to schedule an interview for you and when we schedule you we will send you a notice" and its june 2015 and still same message. My question is, is it normal to go this long without an interview? Because it has been like 8 months since i filed for adj of status and i havent even gotten a single interview. And if it is not normal what should i do? I called the 800 line and the rep told me to still wait and there was no update on my case to report. So it is kind of worrying. Thank you
ps. It been processed in dallas
If you received a receipt and ,there is no update it really means there is no update. USCIS doesn't do things on our terms. They do them on theirs because immigrants have privileges not rights. So you will just have to wait for your interview date. All of the USCIS offices are busy and frankly they have a right to be due to a large influx of immigrants.
What they told you "as of november 7th 2014 we are ready to schedule an interview for you and when we schedule you we will send you a notice" is all they are required to do. The more you call and bother them won't change your status one bit.
I do suggest you hire an attorney though to make sure this is all done correctly.

Seven, eight, or even nine months months is not a long time to be waiting for an interview ... be patient ... don't try to 'push' them ... it will be a waste of time.
