arrowI-485 / I-765 NOA Timeframe and Expedite Request
August 21, 2015, 12:08 am Last comment by ToddB

I recently filed forms I-485 (Application for Permanent Residence) and I-765 (Employment Authorization). According to tracking, they were received by USCIS at Chicago Lockbox on 8/17/15. My I-130 was approved on 12/20/2014, so I didn't file it all together. 


Can anyone share how long it might take to receive confirmation they've received it and / or Notice of Action? I filed an expedite request with the I-765, and have a job offer. I'm trying to figure out if I'll be able to work.


I know if the expedite request isn't accepted it'll take 90 days for work authorization... Just wondering how long they'll take to consider my expedite request after receiving the package. 


Any information would be greatly appreciated! Thank you.

arrowReceiving green cards after first entry into U.S.

We arrived in the U.S. around 3.5 weeks ago and so far have not received our green cards.  How long did it take you to receive yours?


I just checked the USCIS online site but our case still shows "optimized" (this was the status before we even arrived here) and payment status still shows "submitted."  Is this how it is supposed to look?  It does say August 17th as the latest status date, suggesting some update has happened, but as far as the info on the screen goes there has been no update since when we were still in Hong Kong.


A couple of things that concern me are:


a) I made the immigrant fee payment using a Citibank Hong Kong-based credit card.  The payment did go through so I didn't think anything of it but I've heard some people say it must be done using a U.S.-based credit card.  Is this true?


b) The green cards are supposed to be mailed to a friend of mine, and when I was filling out the ds-260 I entered the address in "C/O my friend's name" format to make sure it would not be returned.  Do you think there might be an issue with this?

Hello everybody,
I am a bit confused here..

We got our NoA2 on Aug 4th.
Our case was sent to the NVC on Aug 7th.
Received our ANK2015XXXXXX number on Aug 17th
CEAC says the case is at NVC on Aug 18th
and today I got this when I checked the CEAC. Is there a problem here ?
As far as I know the interview date will be assigned to me by the consulate once I send them the necessary documents they will require after receiving my case.

I'm wondering if anyone has heard that they were scheduled now (August) for an interview in September? At any consulate? Or specifically Turkey?

Thank you
