|HELP WITH AP I-131
Read 20 Times
I am in the process of filing all of the paper work for my AOS since my K1 visa has expired. For the advance parole, is it true I need to submit a letter explaining why I deserve the AP?? I realize the from says it is not necessary to send this evidence if I have the USCIS receipt as evidence that the I-485 has been filed, but I have not submitted my paperwork yet...
key question: attach letter of evidence to my advance parole? yes or no.
|Confusing USCIS Case Status Updates
Read 0 Times
My husband had his AOS interview on July 9th and we received the following string of emails/SMS starting on July 16th, 2014:
July 16th, 4:30PM - I-485: Card/Document Production - Ordered Production of Hasan's card
July 16th, 6:30PM - I-130: Approval Notice Mailed (this was received on Friday, July 18th)
July 17th, 8:30AM - I-485: Decision - Welcome/LPR Status Registered Notice Mailed (this was received yesterday, July 21st)
July 22nd, 7:45AM - I-485: Card/Document Production - "We mailed the new card directly to the address on file" (no tracking number)
July 22nd, 8:15AM - 1-485: Decision - Welcome/LPR Status Registered Notice Mailed (again..?)
I've read a bunch of forums online that say that pretty much everyone gets really weird case status updates from USCIS upon approval but I just find this very odd. Why within 30 minutes of receiving the "card mailed" email/SMS did it go back to "Decision"? If they say his card was mailed I'm assuming it was mailed, but I cannot see a tracking number or anything since it is no longer on "Card/Document Production" on the USCIS Check Case Status website.
Thoughts? Judging by the amount of similar posts online from stressed out AOS-ers, USCIS really needs to revamp their online tools..
