Hi Everyone,

I need some help... I received my EAD card since February 15, 2010 and until not i didn't get any email from USCIS updating me about my status for my I-485. Below is the last message I got from them...

"On February 19, 2010, we transferred this case I485 APPLICATION TO REGISTER PERMANENT RESIDENCE OR TO ADJUST STATUS to our CALIFORNIA SERVICE CENTER location for processing and sent you a notice explaining this action."

What will I do now? Should I call USCIS? How long would it take to process my I-485?

Thank you for your help! I'll be waiting for someone to help me. TY

Joan :yes:

You won't get any traction calling USCIS about your I-485 until it has exceeded their posted goal for processing duration, which is usually 6 months. Any inquiries made prior to that will get a canned, scripted "call us back when it's been 6 months" response.

If it has been 6 months, your best bet is to make an InfoPass appointment. You'll go down to your local USCIS office and talk to an Immigration Officer who may actually have the ability to query and nudge the system to find out what's going on and get it moving again. If that fails, your next best bet is to contact the Immigration Liaison office at your local congressional rep's or Senator's office (pick one, not both) and see what they can do. They can nudge the system as well and are often very effective at getting stuck cases moving again.

Im in the same boat except ours hasn't been "touched" since 5/12. I wonder if it has to do with the new green cards or if its just the USCIS way....My guess is they are just taking their sweet time :whistle:
