Still waiting. Nothing yet. I just stop checking the mail. Everytime I go to the box, I just get so disappointed. I never would have expected not to hear nothing. A rejection or anything is better than not knowing right? Maybe I am just anxious. I am kinda upset with my husband because he did not file express. :bonk: I feel like if he would have filed expressed then maybe we would have heard something by now. Or well, I am just a venting lady today. *sorry!*

Would you please add your timeline in your signature so we will know what step you are waiting for and how long you have been waiting for that so we can have proper answer for you? :)

Relax and don't blame your husband because of the express/non-express stuff.. Couple life has many more big things to concern about though.

Been there, done that. I know how it is to wait and not to know what is going to happen and when. (I kept checking USCIS website and waited for the postman everyday!)

I killed the time by setting a goal for the next step after getting greencard (which is getting a job). I spent time for self-studying and by the time I got my GC, I was ready to take the exam. I got my professional certificate in no time after I got GC.

The whole process would take you 3-4 months, you better find the hobby and enjoy your life with it. (F) (F) (F)

Salamalikom, just wait you will hear something inchallah very soon. I will tell you my story in short. I filed in October 15th 2011, after two I got my biometrics appointment. I had my biometrics done and then waited for 2 almost three months to get a RFE. I sent what they want and I got my work permit afterwards.I got my SSN 10 days after I got my EAD. two weeks later, I got my interview appointment letter which was on March 13th 2012. Since then I have heard anything whether I am approved or not. It's a nerve wrecking process. My lawyer sent a request yesterday asking the USCIS why it took them long to send me my green card. I am still waiting now ............

Hang in there and keep praying. Allah yesahel
