  • How long *should* it take after second fingerprinting is done?

    Hi everyone,

    I just received a notice that my husband and I have to go get our second set of finger-prints done this coming Friday. The first ones were done in March 2003.

    Does this mean that within a few months, our case should resume?

    Here are my details:

    WAC03086*****
    I-485 filed concurently in Jan 2003
    EB3
    2 AP
    2 EAD

    Thanks for your input!

      Actually, I didn't mean "resume", I meant "be processed".

        Is this through employment? Which service center?

          Is the I-140 approved?

            Sorry I forgot this valuable info.

            Through employment and CSC.

            I-140 was approved at least a year and a half ago. It was very quick.

            Hope this helps and I thank you for your time.

              Actually mine is pending through the same SC since July 2002. I just got fingerprinted (second time) 3 weeks ago. The oficial processing time shows that they are currently processing cases with the receipt date of June 15, 2002. Yours seems to be further away but you never know...

                Service Centers have been instructed to simultaneously approved I-485 when filed concurrently to decrease backlog. Since your fingerprints have expired, they are requesting new fingerprints. Once cleared your case should be approved. Cross your fingers!

                  Thank you for answering bmmer and passingby.

                  Passingby: you seem to be quite knowledgeable on the subject... can I pick your brain a little bit more???

                  1) What you said sounds very promising. YOu say that once fingerprinting is cleared, you should get approved. Now, I was wondering, do you have an idea how long it takes for the fingerprinting to clear?

                  2) Where does the interview come in? After the fingerprints clear?

                  3) Also, at which point is it safe to move on to another job, in a different field, and not have any problems with immigration? Let me clarify this: I am currently working for the company that is sponsoring me for the green card but I want to move on to another career as soon as it is safe to do so... Is it better to wait until you have the actual card in your posession or can you change career once the interview is completed?

                  Thank you so much!
                  Have a nice day!
