After emailing (the only way you can contact them) the Chicago USCIS office last Thursday, I came home Tuesday to a message on the answering machine. In my email to USCIS, I told them about our fingerprinting problems and the run-around we had gotten between the FBI and USCIS 1-800 #. I also asked about our possible wait time for the 171-H due to horrible experiences I have been told by people having to go through Chicago. Boy, was I excited to get a response in a timely manner. The lady who left the message said they are processing paperwork received on July 17th and our paperwork was received Aug. 4th. We still don't know where that leaves us in wait times, but at least we have a little bit of information to work with.
