Default USCIS Biometrics notice

I have already given biometrics once after filing my I 485. I have recieved again a letter asking me to appear for biometrics next week.

Question: How many times biometrics are taken after filing for I 485?
Is it every year we need to update biometrics?

Is this an indication that something is being processed on my 485. I dont see a possibility of the 485 being approved as the priority date is Dec 06.

If some one can shed light on this that would be much appreciated.

This is normal. Biometrics expires after 15 months. I seen some of july filers receiving Fingerpriting notices for second time. One of my freind received letter from USCIS for same.

This does not mean your applicaiton will process without considering P.D

My observation/analysis (after seeing the various posts in various message boards) is that if your application is pre-adjudicated before the 15 month FP expiry period, then you wont get another FP notice. If it is taken up for pre-adjudication after the FPs have expired, then probably the IO will send out another FP notice.

Ofourse, my analysis might be seriously flawed - and this is just a guess, no one knows how USCIS operates, not even USCIS!

I had a very interesting experience in Infopass appointment last week. I took Infopass to check why i did not get second FF yet. The rep over at washington field office was very kind she pulled out my file and said ..ooh ur FF has been done in Feb 09 ..i was shocked and told her that i never did any FF recently ..and then she checked my wife's FF her's was showing as updated in Mar 09 ..now it was rep's turn to get confused....she went to talk to her supervisor why it is showing up as FF done even though i never did it. After few mins she came out and gave somewhat good news ..Texas center is auto updating finger printing based from last time ..so we do not have do it again ...I am a EB2 ..with SEP 05 as PD.

What is FF? Do you mean finger printing?

Does someone know why the finger prints expire ? Do people grow new fingers so that they have to take the prints again. Any agency should be able to run the same prints again through the database to see if there is any new information against the applicant.

I wonder that too, what's the logic of re-finger printing. Only thing I can think of is updated picture....

That must be it that they want the latest picture to be associated with the fingerprints .

Biometrics notice every 15-17 months is routine. I have done 3. There does not appear to be ceiling on the number of them. Just like EAD, you keep going until..........................

There is no numerical number, as to how many times they can ask.
Like wisely said above even USCIS also does not know what they are doing.

I also do not know the logic of updated photo, why they need every year.

You can call them on the number given and reschedule the appointment. If you cannot call, visit the appointment center and ask them for a reschedule. But It's easier to call and reschedule it anyway. I believe, you shouldn't have issues representing your husband for this purpose.
