Hi everyone,


I'm newbie here so I wanna apologize if my given information isn't clear. 
So my PD for I-130 is 05/22/17 (still pending) however I've heard good news that there a quite a few people are getting approved for May 2017, CSC and from my country.


I filed for AOS with I-765, I-131 06/25/18. 
I expedited my I-765 and got it early September but until now I have heard nothing about my I-131 even tho I've tried to call them 4+ times to expedite/investigate. Still nothing.
Anyways, I got RFE for I-485 last October and I already sent out the package to respond November but it seemed that they lost my package and they claimed they never received. We tried to call 5 times and they told us to wait till they respond but no respond so far, investigation was opened but no reply, tier 1 said tier 2 would call, NO CALL. NOTHING. Until we freaked out and re-sent the package once again in 02/01 (friday). 02/04 I got the status  changed " respond ... received". Okay, great this time they got it. 
Fast forward I got the status changed "case is ready to be scheduled for an interview" 02/12/19, which was yesterday. 
My field office is Mt. Laurel NJ. I've read  a lot of people had to wait for 7 months + for the status to change from "ready to schedule" to ..."interview was scheduled". However, since I already sent out the i-485 last year, would it count the pending time as waiting time? Or I would have to expect the date to reset from the time they received my RFE respond? Any odd chance that I will have my interview before my I-130 is approved? I know I won't get a GC if my i-130 approved, but I just wanna make sure I understand everything clearly.

Looking forward to any helpful inputs/experience. Thank you so much!

"Ready to schedule" means you're in the queue to be scheduled. The wait time would vary based on the availability of appointments at your local office. Probably from the date the received the RFE though.

Not a chance. The I-130 has to be approved before the I-485 can be approved. They can approve both the same day, but not I-485 before I-130.

This is what I expected to hear but it would upset me the most. But thank you so much for the info! I figured it would take that long anyways. I should have re-sent my response earlier. Now the waiting game's just begun 😭

yeah, but it's like getting an appointment at the doctor's office though, maybe there is a cancellation and they can fit you in. Who knows!
