  1. Thank you! Of course, it's possible to do it by yourself and do it good! I'm happy it worked out well for you! Anyway - it's such a relief to be finaly done with it and move one to more "normal" life.
  2. We had our interview today. Approved on the spot! Now I just checked the status of I-485 which says "New card is being produced!" It was a quick, easy and pleasant experience! The officer - professional and respectful lady - said she was happy that our package was "clear and beautiful", meaning that the case was very well organised by our attorney. Stated that it made her work super easy, so she didn't want to get any additional document from us besides medical form which we did not submit with the package. Not even one question about our relationship was asked. She only asked my husband the standard from I-485 form, like "Have you ever been convicted?" etc. Overall the whole interview took like 10 minutes. Our journey took 13 months altogether, since filling I-130 in October 2018 and then I-485 in June 2019. No RFE, no delays. I guess we were lucky, but I must also admitt that the money spent on our attorney's work were a good investment. Saved us a lot of time and nerves. It was especially important to us because we couldn't afford being denied, since of course I am LPR, not US citizen, so any overstay could be detrimental to our case. I'm saying it because a lot of our friends&family thought that it's a waste, that we could do it by ourselves. Well, of course we could, but today I'm happy we did not! Anyway - thank you guys for every post, I read them all, and that was really helpful too! Wishing all of you the best of luck and see you in 2 years (ROC)!
  3. Update: not even a week. According to USPS Informed Delivery we'll get it tomorrow. Our interview is on Monday. We'll be enjoying it for 2 or 3 business days. Ridiculous. Such a waste of money and resources.
  4. Thanks! But unfortunately EAD basically will be useless, because between the day we'd get it in our mailbox and the interview, there will be like 1 week... I believe our I-130 was not accepted yet, because I assume we'd have Notice of Action or any other notification stating it was accepted. I also assume it will be accepted/declined on the interview.
  5. Congratulations!!! Seems like a long and hard journey... Good luck for the future!
  6. Yes, we are grateful. I know I shouldn't be writing in this particular topic, but I've learnt from attorney that once you're in AOS step of the process, timeline should be the same for everyone. Waiting time depends only on our Field Office backlog, which is not that bad in Detroit. We're adjusting from H1B (not K1), and I am not even a citizen (only Legal Permanent resident). Our journey was supposed to take at least 2 years, but (hopefuly) will be done in slightly more than a year: October 30, 2018 - Priority date for I-130, sent to California Service Center June 6, 2019 - AOS: We filled I-485, I-131, I-765 while our I-130 is still pending (we're current under Dates for Filling) June 26, 2019 - Biometrics in Detroit August 28, 2019 - Our I-130 was transfered from California to National Benefits Center (but was never accepted there) October 16, 2019 - We received courtesy letter for Medical Examination (I-693) October 18, 2019 - "Case is reaady to be scheduled...", and a few hours later sweet "Interview was scheduled" for: December 2, 2019
  7. They gave us 5 weeks and the date is December 2, 2019. The letter with the date came 6 days after status changed.
  8. Hello everybody! Long time lurker here. I appreciate every one of your posts, gave me so much info and piece of mind. I am a Legal Permanent Resident and I wanted to share my and my husband's timeline. He's in the USA on his H1B visa. October 30, 2018 - Priority date for I-130, sent to California Service Center June 6, 2019 - We filled I-485, I-131, I-765 while our I-130 is still pending (we're current under Dates for Filling) June 26, 2019 - Biometrics in Detroit August 28, 2019 - Our I-130 was transfered from California to National Benefits Center (but was never accepted there) October 16, 2019 - We received courtesy letter for Medical Examination (I-693) October 18, 2019 - "Case is reaady to be scheduled...", and a few hours later sweet "Interview was scheduled" Now we wait for the letter with interview date, but I suspect it'll be somewhere around November 15, 2019. F2A PD is current, so I believe my husband will get his green card soon. Our attorney warned us that the whole process will take approximately 2 years or even more, but so far we're fortunate and it'll probably take just about a year. I'm very happy, because I know of citizens who have their process taking much much longer than that, while I am "only" LPR. PS. We didn't get any RFE, but also didn't get his EAD/AP card (we were adviced by attorney to go ahead and apply for EAD and AP as well just in case something happens with his H1B). Thank you again and enjoy your weekend! Edit: spelling
  9. Thank you for letting me know! Fortunately - not relevant anymore! In the morning we had a change from "fingerprints..." to "ready to be scheduled" and that's when I asked the question. Later in the same day we received "interview was scheduled", so it took only a few hours. Good job Detroit!
  10. Hello fellow Detroitans/Michigan residents. How long did it last between "case is ready to be scheduled" to "interview was scheduled"? in your cases?
  11. So didn't they send you RFE asking for medical? And did they just say you should bring it on the interview? That's great!
