Hello all,

Last week we went off all the documents needed to renew my husbands EAD/AP card as it expires in June. Today, we got a message from USCIS stating below:

On March 22, 2012, we mailed you a notice that we had registered this customer's new permanent resident status. Please follow any instructions on the notice. Your new permanent resident card should be mailed within 60 days following this registration or after you complete any ADIT processing referred to in the welcome notice, whichever is later. If you move before receiving your card, please call our customer service center at 1-800-375-5283.

During this step the formal decision (approved/denied) is written and the decision notice is mailed and/or emailed to the applicant/petitioner. You can use our current processing time to gauge when you can expect to receive a final decisionLast week we finally sent off all the information to renew my husband's EAD/AP. Today I got a text message from USCIS saying this:

OMG could this be an APPROVAL notice I am confused about the last paragraph.

Anyone get this letter please let me know we are so wondering and really excited at the same time that this could be his approval after almost one year now of AOS.

Thank you

WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO HOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO OMG we have waited so patiently since we applied last April for our AOS. We are just so happy right now, I guess we won't be needing his new EAD/AP if it comes after the Green Card. OMG I am just soooo happy I am just beyond myself.

This journey was long and going through the Moroccan Consulate was by far the hardest but we made it and now we can sit back a few years and wait to file for ROC. My mind is at ease now and my hubby has a BIG SMILE on his face as well.

Thank you visa journey for all your great advice and help through this journey. I have made some wonderful friends here and hope to make many more.

Congratulations!! :thumbs:

I know processing times can vary...but did they give any reason for it taking a whole year? its only been about 8 months for us but I've started kinda freaking out... am I being ridiculous? Did you guys attempt anything to expedite the process? Just wanting some ideas to keep my mind from thinking the worst and worrying too much.

Again, so happy for you both! :D

Gosh I understand what you mean., our case got transferred to CSC and it stayed there for about 5 or 6 months and I thought we would not have an interview but then we got the letter that our interview would be in January 2012. The lady that interviewed us said she could not make a decision so we left unhappy as we have been prepared from the very beginning to the final end. So USCIS sent us a letter saying about 3 weeks ago that your case is being reviewed and if you don't hear from us after 6 months contact USCIS. I thought OMGGGGGGG 6 more months of this not knowing anything. But unfortunately this is what we had to do. Then today, I got the text message about our case and of course I came here first LOL before anything as I knew members here could tell me what I may or may not needed to hear. So glad for Visa Journey I really am.

Ours has been at CSC for 6 months now so maybe we'll get something soon. When we called USCIS last time, they said they WOULD give us an answer but April 1st. I'm not sure what that means or if I should even trust that.

I contacted my congressman bc they were so helpful with our fiance visa status. I am hoping they can help again. Did you guys try that at all? Has anyone tried that for the AOS?

Nope we never tried anything but a little patience. I could see other timelines in Cincinnati and some got green cards asap and there are some still waiting for over a year.

Good luck and I hope you hear something real soon too.
