Nothing normal now. Usually 4-8 weeks depending on availability in your area, but all ASCs for biometrics are closed through at least June 4.

Usually, it takes about 1-2 months but presently the Application Support Centers are closed so its taking longer. They also recapturing fingerprints from previous filings in many cases.

Generally two to three weeks. However, no biometrics appointments are available now due to the COVID closure.

Biometrics appointments usually are scheduled three to four weeks after filing. USCIS currently is closed to the public until at least June 4, so no new biometrics appointments are be scheduled and existing ones are being postponed. USCIS also has started to use biometrics in its systems where possible and is sending notices saying a biometrics appointment will not be required in some cases.

Right now, nobody is getting them because USCIS is not doing them. Otherwise, one to six months I would guess.
