    for those who would care

    I had my AOS interview on 8/17/04 and was told that I would get my plastic card in 8-12 months. To my surprise I recieved my plastic GC yesterday (in about a month). So the wait is not that long anyway. Good luck to all those awaiting AOS.

    I-485 sent 15 months ago & only received a cash register receipt. Is this normal?

    If your sister sent her petition to the local INS office in NY, then the cash register receipt is all that she'll get. The form I-797C is only sent to you if you send your petition directly to the service center (which would be VSC in your case). So don't worry. I have applied to the...

    Senate votes to end Special Registration

    Yeah, I don't think it matters what the congress or the senate say. This president and his administration have the power to bypass everything in the name of "home-land security". God help us all.
