When can I get a biometrics appointment?

My I-526 got approved and I submitted my adjustment of status application two months ago. When can I expect to get a biometrics appointment? I have been reading online that people get their appointments within a month of applying.

    Call USCIS customer service and make service request or ask your attorney to assist you.

    It should be any day now if you have received the receipts for filing. If no receipts, then there may be an issue.

    You should get your appointment for your biometrics any day now. Same will be scheduled at one of the application support centers.

    Have your attorney find out on your behalf. Otherwise, you can contact the USCIS directly regarding the same inquiry.

    Biometrics appointments depend on the backlog at the application support center nearest you. I wouldn't worry yet.

    You are right. Historically, biometrics appointments were granted within three to four weeks. Like everything else that has to do with immigration, biometrics appointments are also taking much longer now. I think if you cross the three-month mark, you or your attorney should make an inquiry and try to get some feedback.

    You may need to wait a little bit more. There is no standard schedule for a biometrics appointment and there is nothing unusual about two-month waiting period. If your waiting is closer to three months, feel free to schedule an InfoPass visit to the nearest USCIS office to discuss the situation.

    Usually it's within a month, but that doesn't mean USCIS will delay things due to "reasons". Check with your attorney to see if he or she got your notice and make sure to immediately update your address if you move.

    USCIS usually issues the biometrics appointment notice within a month to two months. You should inquire with the USCIS to make sure your adjustment application has been accepted/receipted in and that it is indeed in process if you have not yet received your biometrics appointment.

    You should received your biometrics appointment any day. If not, have your attorney follow up on his issue.
