Default Name Check by FBI

Hi there,


I am unable to find status of my Name Check and I-485 application.
If I call TSC - they say ask National Service center; we do not provide status
and If I call National Center - those guy do not have anything beyond what is shown at USCIS website.

My PD is 12/2002; EB2 - India.

Please provide pointers to the issue.


Thanks,

Sunny

Default Take Infopass

Infopass is the best way to know about it. When you go for it they will give you receipt with stating reason(s) on it.

Default Name Check Cleared!

My name check was first initiated in Sept 2007 and had been pending since then. I called last week and was told that it was still pending. However the IO mentioned that she would re-submit it to the FBI and that I should call back in a week or two for a status update.
I called today and guess what, I was told that my Name check has cleared. Was pleasantly surpsised to know that - although I am aware that it does not matter anymore.

Call up using this sequence and ask if your NC has been cleared:
Call 1-800-375-5283
Press 1
Press 2
Press 2
Press 6
Press 1
Now enter your receipt number
press 1
press 1 (now listen to the case update info)
press 3
press 4
(now if you listen a male voice prompting you to hold the call that means the call is going to IOs desk, if it says no IO is available, it will redirect it to NSC, you can hang up and try the next morning)

Did you call 1-800-375-5283?

I just called this #, and followed the instructions delax posted - and ended up at a CSR's desk in NSC. She told me everything is 'clear' on my app. and is just waiting for an IO and visa (She told me abt valid finger prints etc and checked for about a minute or so)- But she also told she dont have access to the Name check info (It is apparently some other system acc. to her) - but repeated that there is no issue with name check anymore due to the 180days rule.

May be you got an "IO" (Some higher level mortal than the "CSR") who had access to name check info.

Yes, I called that number. How do you tell if its a CSR or an IO? She just went with the case number, not alien number.

From what I understand, CSR is the call center employee, who acts as the first level screener - and she fwds the call to an Immigration Officer "IO" if necessary (as determined by them).

Default When is NC initiated?

Hello,

I am a July 2 filer but got my FP done last week of July 2008.
So, when is NC initiated? When 485 is filed or when FP is done?

I have tried calling TSC and they are not giving any status update on NC. I do have an Infopass appointment on Wed but would atleast like to know when is NC initiated..

Thanks..
