A Tiny Step...

CLOSER!! Over the weekend we received our biometrics appointment notification from USCIS (United States Citizenship and Immigration Services). Our appointment was scheduled for March 12, but luckily in Indiana, as long as they have you scheduled, you can show up at any time. A walk-in appointment is much more my style as patience is not my best virtue. My dear husband, knowing this about me, took time off of work this morning for us to head downtown Indianapolis to be fingerprinted. Fingerprinting is the last step before USCIS will issue our 171-H form... that prized final piece of paper we need to complete our dossier! The lovely lady who took our fingerprints this morning said it usually takes "a couple of weeks" to receive the 171-H form. That sounds a bit like government-speak to me! Here's hoping our form arrives SOON! :)

  1. From our experience, the Indianapolis USCIS office gets theirs out pretty quickly. It will only be about 2-3 weeks. Not bad when in some states you wait months and months.
