Background Check Delays ?

Recommended Posts

Wanted to start a thread to capture experiences of others who are facing delays or faced delays in background checks for I-485.

1. When did you file I-485 ?
2. What has been your experience trying to find out more - Congressman/Senator, Infopass, Ombudsman etc.
3. If your background check cleared after a delay, how long did it take ?
4. Please also add any other relevant information that may help others.

I am a June 2017 filer under the IR1 category (National Benefits Center), and am still being told that my background check is pending. I have always maintained legal presence in the US and have had a clean record all my life.

They refuse to disclose when they initiated the background check or which part of it is pending (IBIS, Fingerprint, Name Check).

Let us share our experiences, so we can educate ourselves more while this seemingly endless wait continues.
