Effective February 15, 2008, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (CIS) began consolidating biometrics collection for applicants who concurrently file a Form I-485 (Application to Register Permanent Resident Status or Adjust Status) and a Form I-765 (Application for Employment Authorization) at one of CIS’ Service Centers. Previously, applicants received two appointment notices to appear at a designated Application Support Center (ASC), but as a result of this change, CIS will collect biometrics data for both applications in one ASC visit. Applicants who filed concurrently before February 15, 2008 will still be required to attend both ASC appointments
