Sanford, FL asked in Immigration Law for Florida

Q: I-485 Application. We haven't heard from USCIS since August 2020.

I'm a US citizen. I've submitted an I-485 adjustment of status family-based for my wife on August 11, 2020. We've got the I-797C notifying me that process is in course at the National Benefits Center. I haven't heard from USCIS since then. We haven't even gotten the biometrics appointment yet. We live in Sanford Florida. Is the time frame normal? thank you

A: Unfortunately due to COVID there is no normal timeframe right now but you should have had your biometrics by now. You can contact USCIS via phone or submit an inquiry online. See: https://egov.uscis.gov/processing-times/

Best wishes!

A: Adjustment of Status through a spouse is taking longer than normal since COVID. This is because many offices closed for a while resulting in backlogs.

If your wife has been previously fingerprinted by the USCIS, she may not receive a bio appointment and they are using her previously take biometrics. If this is not the case, she should have received her notice of biometrics by now,
