Case update today - but it's only been moved to another office instead. I guess the backlog at the original office was too much so it got moved. Waiting continues, no doubt!

Now I'm confused -

Today in the mail I got a I-797C asking me to attend a biometrics appointment on 12/22/2020.... However, on 08/25/2020 it said they had taken my Biometrics from my previous time getting them done for the green card and that it was completed.

What do I do in this situation?

Either contact the office which sent the letter or go to the interview

Perhaps your I-751 has been adjudicated without biometrics and the new card is being produced.

Perhaps the biometric appointment is associated with the N-400 application. The biometrics appointment letter should say what application it's for.

It had been adjudicated in August (status update) without biometrics as they updated my case way back then, hence my confusion by this letter today (with no update about it online).

The biometric cannot be for the N400 as I haven't filed that one yet! It says it for the I-751, but they already took that. I assume with the online card being produced update I can ignore the biometric letter?

I would never ignore a notice from USCIS. Screw ups can escalate quickly and if you do not comply with something they have asked you to do (no matter if it is contrary to what they had previously told you) it's on you, not them.

Get on the phone and clarify.

I agree with civilservant, even if it's a PITA to drive to the appointment if you have no luck on the phone, I'd just go.

Congrats though, you followed a similar timeline as me, although I'm now waiting on the Biometric notice from the N400, hoping they just reuse like they did for my ROC.

I'll try contacting the office.

My case online updated again this time to 'Case was approved'. No updates online mention a letter for biometrics being sent out!

Update online today says my card has been mailed out.

I still plan to call the office regarding the letter I received to be on the safe side though!

Green card delivered today! Officially took 4.5 months from application to card in hand. Next step is the N400 next summer!

I'm assuming I can ignore that biometric appointment letter now for sure...?

I stand by my previous statement. Do so at your own peril.

I called, the agent was confused as I was as to why I had a biometrics appointment letter when all they could see on their end was that my card had been produced and delivered. They informed me they have no record of a biometrics letter being sent to me, and that I should disregard that letter.
