arrowConfusing USCIS Case Status Updates
July 22, 2014, 10:28 am Last comment by HM1402

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..

arrowI-693, vaccination work sheet, ds-3025!

we will mail our AOS application package soon. However, when reviewing the online information/instructions it says that in certain cases, people who had medical exams in their home countries still *may* need to see a physician here. I already had my medical exam in my home country and I have a vaccination worksheet and a sealed CD. My question is should I send this work sheet with my package without form 693 or should I again see a physician who is certified and have him/her fill out the form. 


Basically, do we have to send this 693 form?


what will I do with this worksheet that I have several copies of (that shows my vaccination records that I received before the visa interview  at the consulate a few months back)?


on my vaccination worksheet it says "for ds 3025"--so what does this mean?


I am done with the AOS package except from this crazy vaccination form part. 


one last question, do I need to send evidences of my relationship with my AOS package (photos, bank accounts)?


Thank you very much for any help!

arrowDifferent last name on Green Card and Passport and I'm traveling soon!

I'm in a bit of a pickle right now and I've been trying to call the Border Patrol (USCIS referred me to there) but I can't get any phone calls through. After I got married to my wife and receiving my green card, I have changed my last name at the Social Security office. This is the weird part, because I believe Social Security office can't normally change your name, I was supposed to go to a court and see a judge about it. But either way, I went there and showed my marriage certificate (with my old name) and told them I wanted to hyphenate my last name, and they did it! I received a new social security card with a new name and I've been filing taxes with my last name ever since. When my conditional green card was about to expire, I applied for the 10 year green card with my new last name and I got my new green card with my hyphenated name.


I'm traveling next month and I still have my old name on my passport. I've purchased my ticket with my old last name as well. Is this going to be a trouble while I'm traveling?


I have traveled with my old green card before and I still keep it even though it's expired. I have that as a proof I can show, and I have the marriage certificates (even though they both have old names) but other than that, I don't have any other proof that I've changed my last name other than the paper they gave me at the social security office with a request to get a new social security card. (I could also bring both my social security cards to further prove the case). Did anybody else have a similar situation?

I am about to send of the I-129.  I have all of the proof of a relationship organized and my parents just came to Turkey last week to visit us and meet him so I am now including pictures from the visit.  My fiance and I are both in Turkey and I am filling out the G-1145 form. For my phone number can I put my Turkish cell? Or can I just leave the cell number blank and just give my email?

Hi everybody, my fiancee is very busy nowadays and he doesnt have much patience as to being hold on the phone for a long time. I was wondering whether I, as the beneficiary, can call USCIS and inquire if everything is OK , or whether we have any RFE pending. We are approaching our 5 month, and I just want to be pro- active. Thanks
