Green Card Received : 2014-04-25
Comments : 2 Biometrics appts. No interview appt. Approval letter info was incomplete, causing unneeded handwringing and prompting long (2 hours total) phone call. First USCIS lady hung up on us. Approval letter had first & last name abbreviated to one letter, but 10 yr green card was correct and complete. 10yr green card corrected 2yr card birth country error ("North Vietnam" -> "Vietnam"). USCIS personnel fairly rude on balance in this case.

*Notice about estimates: The estimates are based off averages of other members recent experiences
(documented in their timelines) for the same benefit/petition/application at the same filing location.
Individual results may vary as every case is not always 'average'. Past performance does not necessarily
predict future results. The 'as early as date' may change over time based on current reported processing
times from members. There have historically been cases where a benefit/petition/application processing
briefly slows down or stops and this can not be predicted. Use these dates as reference only and do not
rely on them for planning. As always you should check the USCIS processing times to see if your application
is past due.

** Not all cases are transfered
