I recently have my AC 21 case(RD:Oct.2001) approved after 2.5 years of painful waiting(my husband and kid approved too). I have gong through all the painful process like everybody else.eg. fingerprinted twice, got EAD card twice, Rfed twice, worse of all, my case was transferred to the local office without me knowing.(online status never mentioned about the transfer.)
Right now I've received the approval notice from the local INS office and got my passport stamped on April 15,04.
My question is: when do I expect to receive a welcome notice( I-181) from regional service center eg. Nebraska and the physical
card? Anybody who has similar experience, please help.
