Hello everyone, I have obtained my citizenship in Feb. and applied for my wife's GC a week later. When i originally sent my tax returns i made a mistake so they sent me an RFE stating that I did not make the minimum to be a sponsor (but I actually do) so before I sent the original ones to IRS I fixed the errors and sent the revised one back with the RFE letter and it's been over 2 weeks now. Yesterday I received an email for I-765 card production and today I received another one for I-485 interview at NBC (hopefully the letter will say ATL office otherwise it's going to be a long trip) scheduled for May 17, is that normal processing time or is this because of the tax return issue?

Thank you all in advance!

Not complaining or want this to take any longer, I had my share of "waiting" and it's no fun. I was just asking because I have the mindset that everything that has to do with USCIS must take a while and when we received these 2 e-mails we were surprised but my wife and I are very happy, especially because we have a 8 month old baby and her dad who lives in Brazil is dying to meet him so the sooner the better. Thank you and good luck with yours!
