Make sure you file the I-485 within 90 days of arrival in the US to avoid being out of status and subject to deportation........

After the AOS interview you receive a 2 year conditional resident GC.

EAD is taking 6.5 to 8.5 months currently at the NBC.

AP is taking 6 to 8 months currently at the NBC.

 

GC timeline depends on the processing times of your local field office.

Work permits (EADs) are generally being issued roughly 6 months after submitting the I-765 per other VJ members:

2016 timelines might be a little different from recent cases.
