this sounds to good to be true?!

I'm in some kind of shock here, this morning I received a text that there was an update regarding my I-485, rushed up from bed of course to see what it might be, it just said that the post office had returned the NOA that had been sent out to me. I knew this since I called the USCIS last week to ask what to do about the fact that our names where used differently on every document (when searching here it seems it most often is correct in the computer system) I was told to send in letter describing the issue to NBC, which I posted two days ago so that one hasn't even gotten there yet. However I also asked about my NOA for the I-485 that I hadn't received but all the others came at once and the NOA for the biometric appointment was spelled wrong on the address but luckily arrived anyhow. She told me she could see that the number in the address was wrong also on the NOA for I-485 but that she would take care of that immediately.

Now, what got me excited but doubting this can be true is, I just now received another txt from USCIS regarding the same case.

When reading the email and being logged in to check my case status is says the card/document production?? In less then six hours the case went from initial review to card production?? I haven't even had my biometrics taken, that's scheduled for next Thursday. Anyone had this happen to them?? Are they talking about sending me another document, that's what's being produced??

I'm so confused.. and afraid to be happy, this can't be true, right??

You won't get AOS without an interview, much less without biometrics. The "document production" must refer to the new letter with corrected information.

Good luck!

Many people AOS without an interview. They do not have the resources to interview everyone.

I received another letter in the mail today though saying that the address had been changed as requested more then a week ago. Also on the other applications (I-765, I-131 and I-130) it says initial review, however I feel like the steps have gotten less, interview isn't even an option in any of them anymore? also found two other here on VJ who applied for K1's that got their NOA2 in just one month... I know it sounds to good to be true, but pleeeease can't this be happening/?! :D

You will definitely have to go through biometrics. You may get approved without an interview, however USCIS can't approve your AOS without a background check.

hm, so it's not a miracle then ;) could it maybe be the EAD/I-131 card then that's being produced, because that one I don't need the biometrics for. But then why isn't the status on those two updated? I doubt they would switch the status from initial review to card production just for sending me the NOA1 again with corrected address?

You need biometrics for I-765/EAD as well. Your fingerprint will be on your card.

Many people AOS without an interview. They do not have the resources to interview everyone.

Wow. This statement is wrong on several levels. All couples adjusting status by virtue of marriage get interviewed at SOME point: either at the visa (K-1, IR-1, CR-1, etc.) stage or at the AOS stage (many are interviewed both times). Those who have completed AOS without interview were already interviewed at the US Embassy in their native country. Those whose immigrant spouses are already in the USA (as in the OP's case) MUST be interviewed for AOS, as they wouldn't have been interviewed at the visa stage.

The statement that they don't have enough resources is just strange. Part of the reason the process takes so long is that they interview everyone AT SOME STAGE: either before entry into the USA, after entry or both! If they had more resources, I imagine the process would be somewhat shorter, but lack of resources doesn't stop them from interviewing everyone at some point.

Good luck!

AJ
