New document instead of ADIT stamps?

Hello, I couldn't find much information about it here, but apologies if I missed it somewhere. I'm currently waiting for my removal of conditions and for the past 3 years or so I've been going through the long and annoying process of getting the stamp In my pass yearly, you know calling the USCIS and waiting 30 days for someone to call me back to be able to schedule an infopass and go to the nearest office for that 1 stamp (long story short my conditional GC was lost/stolen in the mail, tried to get a replacement for free twice but did not work as tracking said delivered). Anyway my stamp expired in September, so I finally called USCIS today, went through the regular process and was told I will get a call in 30 days and gave me a number from where the call will come from, so I'll know it's not spam. Well, 2 hours later I'm driving and a call pops up ''USCIS'', I couldn't believe it and pulled on the side of the road with hazard lights because we all know you can't miss that call. This super nice gentleman explained to me (after all security questions and giving me the confirmation number I was given 2 hours ago) that they can send me a document in the mail, I was so in shock that I don't remember what was it called, i-something, that is like a temporary green card document (?) for people waiting on their actual green cards. I was like huhhh, how come I have never heard about it and he told me it is very new and they just started doing it this month (or last month). He explained the request is sent to my field office who will look over my case and mail the document to me, probably in the next 15 days, so I don't have to go to the office at all. I also confirmed how long is it valid (because my extension letter expires in like 2 months) and he said usually for a year and yes I can travel with just this document + passport. I also received an e-mail right after the call that my request was sent to Tampa. I could not believe it, does anyone know any more information about this? Or has recently gotten the same thing? I hope there was no misunderstanding and I actually do not have to wait a month for a 2 hour drive for 1 stamp.

File Form I-864 or Form I-864EZ

I am at the NVC stage and I am wondering if I am to submit for I-864 or Form I-864EZ.

I have only one applicant immigrating, make over 2x the poverty guidelines ish (from salary only) for our household size (2) and need no joint sponsor.

It seems l can file the I-864EZ, but from experience do you think I should stick with it or not?

I have heard so much controversy about this form. What's your advice?

I am sure everyone can see the new update on USCIS account showing estimated time for USCIS to make a decision on case. Is this a useful timeline? Or is it just one of those things?

Where do you think this info is from?

Should we take it seriously?

Expediting I-130 Petition Due to Security (Ukraine War)
7:36 pm September 21, 2022

Since the war in Ukraine, I have been very worried about my partner's safety as he lives in Estonia, just by the western border of Russia.

Throughout this war I've been very anxious and worried everyday that it might spill into where my partner lives. Russia's aggression towards his region have been really scary to me and the security situation over there according to him has been rather tense. Thinking about all this daily have been very difficult and not helping with my anxiety.

I and my family have been war refugees and had left our country in the 90's to find refuge in America. I don't want my partner to face the same problems, not like being in away from each other for more than two years isn't enough!

I had submitted i-130 petition for my partner over 2 months ago, and normal processing times are painfully long. Please is there a possibility that security reasons like this can be accepted by USCIS to expedite our i-130 petition?

I just want to do anything to make sure my partner is safe.

Answering DS-160 "Have you ever been unlawfully present..." after a permitted ESTA overstay

Stuck on this question on the DS-160.

"Have you ever been unlawfully present, overstayed the amount of time granted by an immigration official or otherwise violated the terms of a U.S. visa?"

My fianc had to extend her stay by 2 weeks, back in spring of 2020 due to her flights being canceled. She reached out before her 90 days expired and was granted extension and left within that extension. She has been able to enter a couple times since then, one time she was forced to show her extension email because they didn't have it on file, or at least claimed they didn't. The other caveat is that ESTA is not actually a VISA.

Any help here would be appreciated.
