    Hello, Everyone! Is there anyone out here, that knows anything about my question about not receiving any email, text or NOA for my I-485? We sent a concurrent filings on I-130, I-485 and I-765, as of now I have the NOA's for the I-130 and I-765 and also an appointment for biometrics, but still no notice on I-485, do I have to worry about this? Thanks to all who would reply.

    Word of advice, file your I-751 asap your window opens up to allow time for annoying mishaps! We got NOA1 on June 25 and we had an appointment date for July 21st. We NEVER GOT THE NOTICE because it turned out the irresponsible mailman delivered it into the wrong mailbox (to my next door neighbor) and my irresponsible neighbor didn't go through her stack of mail for two weeks! She finally came over to my door (Friday July 24) with it!
