GC not yet Received

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

We filed our AOS (K1) month of February 2011 together with EAD and AP. After our case was transferred in CSC, in a few weeks after, my EAD and AP got approved and received on hand my EAD card that was May 2011. I was expecting that my GC will be followed soon. I've been waiting for like 2 months now but yet, I have'nt received any update from USCIS. Every now and then Ive checked my case satus at USCIS website and Ive got the same status update in my account since May 2011, (no development) it says:

"The I485 APPLICATION TO REGISTER PERMANENT RESIDENCE OR TO ADJUST STATUS was transferred and is now being processed at a USCIS office. You will be notified by mail when a decision is made, or if the office needs something from you. If you move while this case is pending, please use our Change of Address online tool to update your case with your new address or call our customer service center at 1-800-375-5283.

Now, I am wondering if this is normal? Among those three application I filed, got approved except for my GC. How long would it take to get the approval of my GC? Why until now I havent recieved any updates?

Please..hope somebody could enlighten me with this matter..Thank you.

It's hard to say really.. I've seen some approved in a month, and some for much longer.. I was transferred April 26 and approved in June.. I think there would be no harm in calling and inquiring about your case? Goodluck!! :) At least you have your EAD already, I'm sure the GC approval is just around the corner :)

I filed Sept 30th, 2010 and the NYC field office is processing way past my filling date. My case status on the I-485 says card in production and till this date I have yet to receive a card or appointment or anything. I filed for a replacement card and the last touch was June 5th, 2011. This is all considering something actually did get approved. My step-sons case was filed concurrently and I am showing no touch since OCT 2010. I mean.. They obviously can care less about how they handle the cases.
