      i think you can't get adjuatment of status if you run out of status!
      i assume you didn't receive any letters from BCIS yet???

        In about 2- 3 months you will receive your EAD and a letter for fingerprinting. I guess you had entered legally on Visa, there should not be any problem with your overstay here. Immigration Department may ask you for a Waiver.
        Good luck.

          To Umesh Passi:

          I received a letter from BCIS only now(over 6 months after I apllied for AOS).
          They scheduled 06/14/03 for my fingerprinting.

          Can you, please, help me clear up the following doubts:

          1) Is is possible to do fingerprinting on a Saturday(06/14/03)? If not, how/who can re-schedule this date?

          2) Is that true that only after fingerprinting they will send the applicant an EAD or have an EAD interview scheduled? What type of question do they ask in an EAD interview?

          3) Does fingerprinting come before EAD, I mean, does everybody fingerprint before getting their EAD?(I though it was done as a preceding step for the main interview)

          4) How long does it usually take after fingerprinting to have your AOS interview scheduled? (at LA local immigration office)?

          thanks a lot!!!!

                The answer to your questions is that IT DEPENDS on where you apply. In Boston you get your EAD the same day you hand-deliver application for AOS. As for Saturday, yes thats possible. If am not wrong, the fingerprinting is done by the FBI, and even if you miss the interview and go to the SBI of your state, they will still do the prints and send them to NSC, because you MUST have the prints in before they get you an interview because they want to see if you are on the crime database which would make you ineligible for the whole process and so no interview. If I were you, I would attend the interview even if its at Sunday midnight because that way your paperwork moves faster. If you start skipping stuff, you will be going to the back of the line and so it will take you longer to deal with BCIS, and I dont think you want this.

                  HELLO,
                  I applied in LA(local office). I have no intention of postponing the fingerprinting, quite the oposite, I just thought they did not work on weekends(Saturdays), and they had miscalculated the date.
                  I also know the reason why I have to fingerprint before the interview.No problems about that! Actually, I'm glad they finally scheduled something for me!!!
                  What puzzles me is the fact that:

                  * it took over 6 months for BCIS to schedule fingerprinting, and only after doing that I will be granted my EAD??!!

                  * does verybody fingerprint before EAD interview or usally before interview for GC?

                  * does EAD interview count/apply for the GC? If not, why do they request some people EAD interview while others get their EAD right away through mail?

                  Thanks for your help.

                    To Guesty:
                    It all depends on offices where you had submitted your AOS papers. Usually EAD is issued in 2- 3 month. Immigration Support Centers where fingerprints are taken are different than Immigration Department. In their letter they must have assigned you a particular Immigration Support Center for fingerprinting. If you can not make on the particular date, you can reschedule with them your fingerprinting. In Immigration letter they always give you address of ISC and instruction in case to miss scheduled appointment. After fingerprints it usually takes 3 - 6 months for Immigration to schedule AOS interview.
                    You can check status of your EAD application online at www.immigration.com
                    Good luck.

                      to Umesh Passi or any other expert in this forum:

                      The letter I received gives the address and date for fingerprinting(Actually,it was sent to the office address where a lawyer assistant filled out and filed for me).

                      june/14 at 2:00pm (saturday!!!)
                      El Monte Center
                      Golden Vista Plaza
                      9251 Garvey Ave#Q

                      Is that the address for an Immigration Support Center?
                      So far, nobody in this forum has given a straight and clear answer to my following questions:

                      1) Is it the normal procedure to fingerprint to get the EAD?
                      (mainly because it's been over 6 months after I applied for AOS, and the letter I received for fingerprinting says:" to continue processing you application form I-485, BCIS must send your fingerprintings to the Federal Berau Of Investigation for a criminal history check. You have been scheduled do be fingerprinted at the location listed."
                      The letter is signed by Jane E. Arellano(Interim District Director)

                      I understood that this fingerprinting is being scheduled as a first step before the interview for the GC.

                      Why then, does the social worker who filed for me claims that fingerprinting is a usual requirement before having the EAD interview scheduled(and that BCIS will schedule the interview whithin 2 weeks after fingerprinting)?

                      What's the explanation for those people who get their EAD usually one months after applying for AOS(I know a lot of people who received their EAD by mail whithin 3-6 weeks, without fingerprinting first).

                      Has the local immigration district offices of Los Angeles changed their procedures/criteria?

                      Has anyone else in this forum gone through a similar process? I mean, waited for over 6 months, and then be scheduled for fingerprint and only after that be schedule for EAD interview?

                      I'm really confused and hope somebody can help me clear up this puzzle.

                      THANKS!!!

                        Just to give a clear picture.
                        I've just called the office of the assistant lawyer who prepared the applications and filed for me, and she told me that she requested and appointment at the BCIS in LA for me to pick up my EAD, but she got no reply yet.

                        I questioned her about why I have to wait for so long(over 6 months) to get my EAD, while other people who applied at the same place, under the same immigration category, received their EAD hardly after 3 weeks. She agreed with me and said that it usually takes,at most, 2 months. She added that BCIS may have lost mine.

                        But then she contracdicted herself saying that fingerprinting is a requirement form BCIS to get the EAD, and that they will schedule an appointment for my EAD in two weeks after fingerprinting.

                        Am I getting paranoic or is there something wrong going on with my immigration process?

                        Appreciate your comments.
