Hello! This is my first post! I am finding Visa Journey amazingly helpful!

I am filing for an AOS, from my current O1 Visa, to Green Card, through marriage. I am putting on the final touches, and we will be sending off the file to Chicago Lockbox on Monday! Extremely nervous and excited. Any other April filers out there? Would love to share the journey!

Day 2- April 8th, 2015- Package recieved

Day 8- April 14th, 2015- E-notifications- 12 emails and 12 texts "Your case was received". Checks cashed.

Day 12- April 18th, 2015- Hard copies of "Notice Of Action" for all 4 forms came in mail.

Day 26- May 2nd, 2015- Biometrics notice received in the mail, appointment for May 12th.

Day 28- May 4th, 2015- Successful Biometrics walk in completed.

April Group:

Useful for you to see the progress of an earlier submission group.

Here is the February Group:

For EAD/AP dates shown are date notification EAD card in production, not received date.

Except where the notation (like for my case) says 'received.'

You can check back on the February Group on Mondays to see updates to this listing.

Yes, someone actually has to take the time to do this to provide useful info for others.

I am a March filer. Amiable, it took about 7 days (from receiving the hard copies of the NOAs) for my case numbers to show up on the USCIS website.

Hope this helps.
