    All of a sudden the I-485 application was approved with an approval notice email, but no further updates on the USCIS website or emails. Yesterday, the card showed up in the mailbox along with 2 identical copies of welcome notice:). There was no LUD after finger printing (code 3), since 11/20/2006:rolleyes:. Please see the signature file.

    The derivative applicant had an RFE on I-485 (06/11/2007) for TB-skin test :confused: (the application was originally submitted with the X-ray report alone as the applicant had TB skin test done in the last 3 years). Responded to RFE with TB-skin test and X-ray. Promptly, there was an update :)(07/05/2007; LUD; RFE received, application process resumed; should receive approval or futher information within 60 days). But there was no further LUD since July 05, 2007:mad:.

    This forum is unassumingly great in sharing the application process and gives immense insight on writing recommendation letters and other details. Our application went through a professional immigration lawyer and previously had O1 visa. So was exposed to the process of recommendation letters and cover letters before.
    Was just patient as i had O1 visa in hand. The derivative applicant was living with EAD. I had traveled abroad twice and never had any issues or problems at the border with the officer. But people, please try to carry all immigration related documents, including, pending I-485; approved I-140 (if you have); existing H1B or O1 approval; and if possible your employment letter and visiting card. Was asked to show one of the above or in combination on both the occasions of my return to US.

    Aroma_kills and all-

    Thank you very much. I sincerely understand your position. Just came out of it. Do not feel bad, matter of time. If you have your I-140 approved, I-485 is on the way. Name clearance, RFE on I-485 for birth certificate, TB-skin test, its all part of the game. Eventually we all will land on I-485 approval.

    I did not understand. You had TB skin test but that was done three years ago and had submitted with recent X-ray report.

    If i understand correctly, if TB skin test turns out be be negative, then one need not submit X-ray test. Recently I had done my medicals and TB skin test was -ve and doctor told me that I need not to take X-ray. But doctor declined to give me a copy of medical report saying all tests were -ve. But I dont know what he has marked next to X-ray test although written normal for TB skin test.

    May be i didnt write it clearly. TB-skin test was done within the last 3 years (in 2004) and it was +ve. Both the physician and the applicant agreed to skip the test and go for the chest X-ray. As per CDC and prevention, one should not undergo TB skin test within 3-5 years, if the candidate had a +ve test (in the last 3-5 years). But accidently, the physician failed to mark the skin test as negative on the application (left the box empty triggering the RFE). Hope i am clear now.

    Thanks. I got my O1 approved back in September 2005 (for a period of 3 years).

    I used
    6 reference letters (3 international and 3 within the US), cover letters inlcuding supporting letter by the company and attorney's justification letter (written by immigration attorney; petition was sponsored by the company), publications- 9 first author papers, 2 second author papers,
    2 invited reviews,
    1 book chapter,
    abstracts,
    8 invited lectures,
    citation index (totally ~151 papers cited my original research publications, i sincerely collected all the citations first page, exact cited page with the text highlighted, reference section of the respective publications),
    guest reviewer for 2 scientific journals,
    2 approved patents (including website information),
    PhD degree certificate notarized by the attorney, previous immigration documents, J1 (with waiver certificate), H1B and O1.

    I think i have listed everything possible.
