Providence, UT asked in Immigration Law for California

Q: It's been 6 months and still no marriage interview appointment. Anything we can do for an update or to expedite?

My wife is currently in the process of getting her green card (application submitted 01/2018). On 8/30/18 the online status of her application changed to stating we will be notified of our interview appointment. It has now been over 6 months and we still have not been contacted regarding an interview date and the online status has not changed. We're wondering if there is anything we can do to get some sort of update or better yet an actual interview appointment.

Additionally, she currently has a work and travel permit that is valid until 09/6/2019, which is still 6 months away, but it took about 7 months for her to receive her first EAD card, so we're also wondering if we need to concern ourselves with filing for a renewal (and paying an additional application fee) soon or not. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

A: You can file a service request with USCIS to try to get an update. If there's still no interview scheduled in a couple months, you may want to file to renew the EAD. There is no additional application fee required.

A: A lot of the time it takes to be scheduled for an interview depends on where she will have it. Large cities have longer waits just because more people are applying for immigration benefits there. Visit the following website to get an estimate of how long it will take in your jurisdiction.
