Thread: Celebrations & Thanks

  1. #1

    Red face Celebrations & Thanks

    This forum has been an excellent support for me. Five years has been a long wait and predictions done here by Q, Spec, Teddy & gang are extremely helpful to get us through the waiting period. Finally today the wait is over and I got the Card Production Email:
    "Your Case Status: Card/ Document Production
    On September 3, 2013, we ordered production of your new card. Please allow 30 days for your card to be mailed to you. If we need something from you we will contact you.
    "

    Thanks for the invaluable information and analysis.

    Thanks guys, especially you Spec. I'm not going to abandon the forum, so i'm not going to give a long drawn out speech. But a couple of weeks of vacation will help with my addiction.

    A couple of chilled beers now to help this sink in.

    Inspired by natvyas' post earlier, I called an L1 officer and got the run around, so I did some more research on trackitt, figured out how to get to an L2 officer, and chose to give my number rather than wait the 122 minutes they said it would take. About 90 minutes later I got a call back, and really no information from the L2 officer other than that my application was with an officer. Less than 20 minutes later, I got the Card Production/Decision SMS and email. I really have no way to be sure if the two were related at all, but mine isn't the first case out there where this has happened.

    The latest splits are as follows:
    Augusters:------TSC 9-----NSC 0-----Total 9
    Septemberers:--TSC 6-----NSC 22-----Total 28

    TSC was working largely on clearing August backlog this morning, but appears to have shifted to the Septemberers this afternoon.

    After years of approaching this with a zen-like almost-Buddhist calm, I've been pretty distracted since the last VB came out and absolutely consumed by this since last week (as many of you would have noticed). I have been battling this affliction and have tried hard to switch my focus back to work, but wasn't able to. Now, I think can.

    I don't think i'm going to continue to scour trackitt looking for updates, so if anyone wants to continue to do so, send me a PM with your personal email and i'll forward my spreadsheet to you.

    Jai Hind, Go Yankees and God save the Queen!

    I have received following mails between 9.00 am - 9.10 am for self, my Wife & Son from USCIS. Can anyone pl. confirm if this can be considered as initial stage of GC approval?

    *** DO NOT RESPOND TO THIS E-MAIL ***
    The last processing action taken on your case
    Receipt Number: SRC1290XXXXXX
    Application Type: I485 , APPLICATION TO REGISTER PERMANENT RESIDENCE OR TO ADJUST STATUS
    Your Case Status: Decision

    On September 5, 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.

    Q, Spec and all others,

    I was a silent follower of this forum, taking pearl of wisdom from all of you. Today, I received my GC approval SMS & Email with status of Card Production.
    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.

    Thank you for your wishes. I am greatly Indebted to many people on this site. Our great Gurus on this site had been continuous source of inspiration. Many of them are doing a selfless service for betterment of immigrant community. I truly salute your service and sincerely thank everyone for their invaluable contribution. I learnt lot on immigration matters from this site.

    For people waiting for GC I wish all the best & hope you get greened too. My advice is please use all available resources or pull all possible strings. I contacted Congressman, sent email to Ombudsman & raised 'SR'. I do not know which one had worked. As adage say "Make hay while sun shines". I followed this simple philosophy.
