Thought I'd update all the other frustrated petitioners out there providing you with an update of the TSC.  I contacted USCIS today 7/22/14 and the representative stated that they are currently processing petitions dated December 17th, 2013 and based on my Feb 21 2014 NOA1 she estimated another 2 months

Hey there,

 

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. 

 

Thanks!  :joy:

So we got approved (NOA2) on June 16th- I called 2 weeks later and the NVC said that our case was received and will be forwarded to the consulate in the next few days. This past week, my fiance received a letter saying that the NVC had forwarded our case tot he consulate and in the mean time the beneficiary (me) could fill out form DS-160 online... Which I did a few days ago. I'm just confused as far as what I'm waiting for at this point... I'm assuming I'm waitting to receive something from the consulate via mail? Any idea of how long that usually takes? I'm just looking to find a bit more clarification on what to expect between now and when i'll be able to schedule an interview-plus when I pay the Visa Fee? I've already read the guides and stuff... just looking for some personal experiences to give me a bit more context. Thanks.

arrowConfusing USCIS Case Status Updates

Hi everyone, 

 

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..
