Hello! I have a friend who came to this country legally through an artist visa from Cuba. He over-stayed and completed the year and one day waiting period before applying for legal residency. His I485 was received on 1/19/2019 and approved, work permission approved. However, since then he has received nothing. No green card, no letter extending his legal status in this country or the ability to legally work, both of which have expired. His lawyer is no where to be found. I am trying to figure out where his packet was sent to determine the process time but I don't know what his process is called. On the USCIS website it says that his case is ready for interview since October 2018. I brought my husband to this country on a K1 and successfully filed all paperwork myself but I know my friend's process is different. His cousin went through the identical process here, the only difference was that he started his process one month ahead of my firnd and he received his permanent 10 year green card (which is what they should receive after the I-485 is approved, most of the time interviews are never scheduled) in April of this year. If anyone can point me in the right direction, I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks!
