Finally!!

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Well, it's been a little over 9 months.. But! We finally got an answer on my husbands green card!! We have been approved, we filed in August of 2012, no RFEs, but did file for a service request when the 8 1/2 month mark hit, we got a little worried when the Chicago website processing times stated that they were on October 2011 filers and we hadn't heard anything yet. I checked the website today, which I did quite often, expecting to see "acceptance" which we have seen for the past 9 months, to finally see "decision" which was surprising since we signed up for email/text notifications and hadn't received anything. Definitely happy anyway!! Hang in there Filers!! You will get there! Now time for a much needed break on worrying, stressing, and minorly freaking out about approvals or denials!! Until the ROC process of course :) but still a nice break!
