Default It has been 3 and a half months for me now

It has been 3 and a half months. Still initial review. They are making mockery of "Initial review" process by not doing anything. 5 minute job in approx 5 months. We are sure paying for some past sins and they are sure enjoying for the good jobs that they did in their past life.

bsbawa10,

You are in a better position than me. My AP was applied exactly 3 months ago and the case doesn't even show up online. We have the receipt from USCIS and nothing after that.

ours was at NSC. When it was pending over 105 days, we called the 1-800 customer service number and requested an "Expedite Service Request" for reasons of financial hardship and health reasons of family back home. We recd. email to send proof of pre-purchased restrictive tickets and reasons for expediting. On sending those, thankfully, applications got approved quickly. Hope this helps others in similar situation.

The following questins do come to my mind.

Why should it take 105 days wait to do it at the first place ?
Why after 105 days also, we should be calling to request Expedite service and send proofs of our reason to get it "soon" (after 105 days).
Why should the person, who just sat and did nothing for all 105 days for a 5 minute job not be asked for explaination and or fired ?

heartbeat is on a distinguished road
Default Mine at TSC took around 1 month for whole AP process

Me and My wife applied for AP renewal through e-filing around 1st week of May. By May 14th we got the receipt notices. By June 10th we got our AP approval notices with 1 year validity in hand. We lost the 2 months as our old AP's were about to expire last week of July.
But that seems to be fine looking at your AP renewals delaying by more than 3 months.

while i agree your questions (which were mine too) appear completely justified ...but unfortunately we know for a fact this process is anything but perfect.. or transparent.

We can only be grateful that now we at least have a voice that gets heard and would help us solve the root cause of such ridiculous yearly problems. All we can do is be supportive in the correct sense and calmly focus on resolving the problem at hand.. with a approach that might prove very effective.... good luck
