Hi All,

My husband and I filed for our Green Card on January 06, 2015; and though we've received his EAD card and AP, we've heard absolutely nothing about our GC. Aren't they supposed to at least transfer it out of the Missouri Benefits Center? We haven't even had that notification yet. Should I be worried??? Is anyone else in this situation with us?

Thanks so much everyone. The commiseration and collaboration really helps. :)

Welcome to the club.

I filed June 13th, 2014, and still hear nothing at all. Look at the local USCIS processing time where your I-485 is processing now. Mine is at Kendall USCIS local office and they are now working for May 2014 filers.

I also have just today received my approval of my Green Card and as you can see from my timeline I filed in May 2014. I expect to receive my GC in the next 30 days according to the latest update from USCIS. I also heard nothing from the day I received my EAD (August 2014) until yesterday when they confirmed that the GC has been approved. Unfortunately USCIS do like to test your patience. Best of luck, and I wish a speedier response time for you than I encountered.


Oh also, my case stayed in the Missouri Benefits Centre the whole time. You may yet receive an interview waiver, as I did too.

what's an interview waiver?

Interview waiver is where a Green Card is approved without you being required to go for an interview in person.
