Is 485 approved?

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I'm confused. We had our family based 485 interview Mar 25 and the IO gave us a letter that case is in review and we will notified of final answer in 30-45 days. However, just 2 hours after the interview I rec'd a text alert that new card is in production. (No approval letter or anything else/Case status online says nothing about approved either..just card production). Very strange the USCIS would go from 30-45 days in 2 hours, but does this mean the 485 got approved?
