I gave my 3rd FP for pending 485 last week. Haven't seen any LUD change since. My NC was cleared last year as per USCIS. My question is after every FP, does FBI initiate a new name check? is this a vicious circle ?

Does we need to keep track of the period for our next FP or does the USCIS send as a letter every year to do our finger prints?

No, I went for my 2nd FP last week. I asked USCIS (800#) the above question.
It is done once. Looks like FP and Name check are different processes.

How did you guys find out your Name Check Status. Do we have to call USCIS to check for this or is there any other way to confirm this.

thanks,

how would you know if you have to get your FP done again...would you get an RFE or something like that?

If your last FP was more than 15 months ago, then write to local congressman, that usually works.

Congressman for FP, you may want to contact USCIS first. They may not expedite your I-485 but they are good in sending these things...

search forums here, people haven't gotten their FP renewal notices even after requesting number of times to USCIS. Request from congress member compels uscis to move their butt.

There is no RFE for expired FP, they would only send a FP notice if they are awake.

I remember reading in one of the threads here that USCIS computer system automatically generates FP notices if its more than 15 months. By the way, if they don't issue us one, why we do need to ask them using congressmen etc? Is the burden of giving FP every 15 months falls on the applicant?

Do they do a name check for EAD as well?

My EAD renewal (submitted electronically) has been pending for almost 80 days now. COuld this delay be due to name check or FP process?

burden is not on you, but if your PD is current, your FPs are expired, then they are not gonna approve GC without having new FPs. And if they are not sending the FP notice, wouldn't you take effort to do something about it?

In this case is it not their duty to send FP notice and reason for not approval delay?? Its really a crazy situation esp during one's PD current and visa's available before its U or retrogresses...:( Damn CIS..

Our finger prints does not change. They have our FP on their system. Providing new finger prints does not add any value to our case or US security.

Additional FPs just result in wastage of resources for us and USCIS (eventually tax payers). They can utilize same resouces for processing applications in FIFO.

We can suggest this to ombudsman. Its wastage of time and money on the applicant and the USCIS(tax payers money)

I took an InfoPass appt. at the local USCIS Office and the IO there was quite willing to share information. He told me my FP returned with "no record" and my NC (same as BC) came out clean and was nice enough to confirm the same thing for my wife (even though she wasn't at the InfoPass appt. herself).

InfoPass appts are generally a crap shoot - if you are lucky you will get quite a bit of info, else the cold shoulder treatment.

But for sure, calling the USCIS office won't give you any info reg. the status of these checks.

Hope this helps.
