I-485 Approved(?) / I-130 In Initial Review

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

 

This is kind of a silly question, but I know there are so many people who are very knowledgeable. 

So I had my interview this morning, everything went well (or that's how I perceived it), and few hours later my online statuses for both I-485 and I-130 changed to 'The Interview Was Completed and My Case Must Be Reviewed'. Shortly after, I-485 status changed to 'New Card Is Being Produced', which - I assume - is great, and I should be happy about.

 

However, I-130 still shows the same 'must be reviewed' status... 

 

I thought I-485 could only be approved upon I-130 approval, or am I mistaken?

 

Is this just a delay in the status updates, or am I celebrating prematurely? 

 

If anyone has been in the same situation, please let me know the outcome :)

 

Thank you!

What the status of the i-130 says doesn't matter. You have your greencard approved. The case tracker doesn't always update, I think especially when the greencard has been approved there's no reason to update the i-130.
