I accidentally started a new thread on this - whoops. Trying to get a mod to delete it.

 Our 90-day window opened on Thursday, November 29, and we just sent our package in via FedEx today (December 3). Decided not to do the rush service since it's not the same as waiting for the I-130, so it will arrive on Thursday. Another step in progress! We will probably apply for citizenship right when the window opens up in the hopes that they will be adjudicated together. In case anyone was wondering, here is what we included with our package. It included 290 pages of evidence, plus the I-751, personal check, and copy of my husband's GC. We two-hole punched the top, organized with Avery exhibit tab dividers, and used ACCO fasteners to stick it all together. Good luck, everyone!

Our window opens on Dec. 10 and I’m just starting to gather my documents. I got a letter from uscis as a reminder which I didn’t think they would do.

Quick question though, it says I must submit a copy of the front and back of my I551 stamp but I don’t have one, is that an issue? Should I have gotten one at some point? I don’t see why but I’m wondering. Or does that just mean copy of my green card? I’m confused lol.

The I-551 they are asking a front & back copy of is your green card.

Embassy

Case Ready at Embassy: 12/05/2016

Case Ready and "touched" at Embassy" 12/16/2016

Medical Date: 12/21/2016 Sputum testing required so this sets us back at least a few months.

Interview Date: 01/04/2017  Interview went well.  We are in "administrative Processing" until negative Sputum Test result is received in March.  The consulate will then issue the Immigrant Visa. So there is nothing further for us to do.  We agreed to have the consulate cancel My wife's B1/B2 visa from an older passport and it was stamped "cancelled without prejudice".  We did this now so she would not have to go back to the consulate to have it done later.

Visa Issued:  03/07/2017

Visa in Hand: 03/08/2017

POE:  03/29/2017 Charlotte, NC  Processed quickly at airport (about 20 minutes with CBP) and was not even asked any questions.

Social Security Card:  Received 04/07/2017 (processed through CBP at POE)

Green Card Received:  4/19/2017
