There have been no changes.  If the $220 fee has been paid, cards are normally mailed a few weeks to a few months after arrival in the US.

Wouldn't the I-551 stamp on the passport good enough for the DMV and everywhere else while waiting for the greencard?

Yes.  The endorsed IV is your green card until the plastic one arrives.....

Yes, this ^^^  If the clerks at the DMV do not accept something that is clearly defined right on the visa, then demand to speak to a supervisor there.

 

Good Luck!

My husband's timeline

March 21st paid the immgration fee

April 26 POE at Lax

May 23rd job offer extended

May 24th company demanded proof other than stampped cr1 visa for proof as us person per itar regulations. Sent them visa again with uscis website explaining it. We even showed them the receipt showing we paid for immgration fee.

May 24th went to SS office,  hubby said they forgot to send him his updated card.

May 28th company accepted explanation and stampped visa........

May 29th new card with no need for auth from dsh. (Old one from j1 had that note on it)

May 30th got drivers license after showing proof of my id with docs with our address and marriage certificate. Hubby's visa stated "full name in passport reads" because hubby's middle name is to long and they refused to add his middle name to drivers license because it wasnt part if the visa even thought it was writen on the annotation, we also showed them hubby's russian driver's license and his updated ssc.

June 7th about an hour ago I got a text and email stating they approved and the card is in production. Still waiting for his driver's licence.

 

I don't know what pushed his card. He also has as a note saying his iv doc are electronic etc, I forgot the exact wording. There are some people in the forums saying that because they didn't have the physical immgration packet, it somehow got lost and they had to go make an infopass appointment. And they got their cards within a year of POE.
