    Hi

    My status was changed to Card/Document Production yesterday evening saying you would receive the card within 30 days and today morning it shows Decision

    "On September 6, 2013, we mailed you a notice that we had registered this customer's new permanent resident status. Please follow any instructions on the notice. Your new permanent resident card should be mailed within 60 days following this registration or after you complete any ADIT processing referred to in the welcome notice, whichever is later. If you move before receiving your card, please call our customer service center at 1-800-375-5283.

    During this step the formal decision (approved/denied) is written and the decision notice is mailed and/or emailed to the applicant/petitioner. You can use our current processing time to gauge when you can expect to receive a final decision."

    Does this mean my 485 is approved or it could still be any decision?

    Could you please throw some light.

    Thank you very much !!

    I recieved this email & text message from USCIS few minutes back. Does this mean my I-485 is approved? The status changed from Acceptance (until this morning) to Card Production. Is this normal?

    No RFE, No SR, No congressman inquiry, No nothing.
    I did change my address recently (08/14) and called L2 to confirm it. Funny thing..L2 guy took about 20 min to pull my file. May be that wiggled my case.
    Also, I looked up few cases around case number and they were all approved long time.

    Thank you for all the wonderful work you guys are doing on this board. You definitely helped me along the way. For those who are still waiting, hope for the best prepare for anything. Good luck people !!
    Congratulations mstanfield!!!

    I had a Priority date of Apr 2, 2008 (EB2I) from TSC. My case - I485 was filed last year on Jan 12 and had RFE for Immunization for my sons, which was replied on May'12. I had added my name in the list which Pedro had put together as skchoubey - apr2, 2008 (EB2I)

    I must say that, it is really a big relief for me and my family that finally I got GC (more than 7 years into US),

    Thanks to all of you again.
    Felicitations skchoubey....

    Congrats Nat. Enjoy the green days ahead!

    I know it is impossible to ever know for sure, but do you feel that the SRs that you opened helped?

    Thanks Q, Jagan, Venkat and others,

    I appreciate your wishes and wish all of you, best of luck. This forum is indeed great with right dose of optimism, a little bit of pessimism backed by solid calculations (Spec) and some realism (Q). At the end, this forum keeps growing and become the hope of all those, who are waiting for their GC. I really appreciated all the posts, through this tough & arduous time.

    BTW, One of my friend (his I-485 receipt starts with LIN XXXX) EB3I also got approved today.
    Thanks again

    seems like happy weeknd for me too- got cpo email followed by address change status back to back.

    I am still in disbelief. With the kind of luck I had in my GC Journey, I still cannot believe it. almost anti climax.

    This is my 3rd Labor where I was able to finally apply for I-485.

    My 2nd Labor was stuck in RFE, while my priority date based on earlier approved PERM Labor was current from October 2011 through May 2012.

    I changed my employer in middle of May 2012 and 2 weeks later my 2nd labor gets approved on 5/27/2012 ( 4 days left to apply for I-485, as my priority date become unavailable on 6/1/2012).

    Employer B was not willing to file concurrently for I-140 and I-485 until I get back on their H1-B which they claimed have cancelled a week back. I was willing to do that and employer said it is too short time frame to file everything in 4 days. We will apply when u become current again.

    I stayed with employer C until now.


    I just hope it is worth the wait of 14 1/2 years.

    Approved

    All,

    I am happy to inform the forum that I received CPO emails yesterday.
    PD 07May08
    RD 08Mar12
    NSC
    Went from Acceptance to Card Production.

    Spoke with Level 2 on 4th Sept - He mentioned that the case was pre-adjudicated in June 2012 and opened a SR. I opened an e-request for my dependent the next day.

    However, my dependent is still in acceptance. I am hoping for an early approval for my dependent. All our approvals for EAD/AP (initial and renewal) came on the same day - so I am guessing for some reason, the dependent's file went to a different IO/queue.

    Anybody else with Primary approved and no change in dependent's status?

    Thanks!
