Hi everyone! My status just changed to ‘New Card is Being Produced.’ Thank you everyone in this forum. I am also one of the person who was waiting for New Orleans FO to reopen. I hope they would approve @DV21M @Machidargos you guys as well and others I don’t know. Thanks to everyone in here.
GREAT news! Congratulations. Please add your case updates to the timeline spreadsheet.

I am ECSTATIC for you (not gonna lie, a tiny bit jealous too - but happy beyond belief).
My case status has not changed, and I wanted to summon the wisdom of the forum: I know @Byoldas had his fingerprints taken a week ago because he was scheduled for both the interview and bio on the same day… mine were taken before the FO closed, would that be significant for his case being approved without the interview but not mine? Or can I still harbor hope I’ll have the same outcome?
 
If your AOS is not approved, I’m not quite sure your G4 renewal will be approved (if you file for a renewal) since you already submitted a waiver (I-508) with your AOS package, but I could be wrong though. So I don’t know if you should file for a renewal now or not, sorry I can’t help with this.
Thanks mom. My understanding was that the I-508 waiver was part of the GC/ AOS application, and that if the GC is not approved as part of the AOS application, then I would revert to my non immigrant visa (G4). Is that your understanding?
I remain hopeful for a positive decision by Sept 30.

Yes, that is usually the case especially when the existing status remains valid for much longer after the AOS application has either been denied or not approved before the end of the FY - one would revert back to the existing status. Applying for a renewal of that status is not quite in the same category though, and especially when a waiver was already filed with the AOS application.

I mean, all of us in New Orleans already got denied for an info pass, multiple times, last week.
Lets say that the office there's close , but ours is open operated
A call from USCIS of Alabama. Our cases have been approved and we will receive our Green Cards soon.

Like someone says in this forum Free at last. Free at last.... (I am still waiting to have the card in my hands)

I hope You're the next DV21M.

Congrats Byoldas. !!!!

Thanks mom. Will wait for a positive outcome and hopefully this will not be relevant in a couple of weeks!

I know Mom is gonna yell at me to have patience, but I am honestly thinking it has something to do with the biometrics as mine were taken well before the FO closed.
Nope, not gonna yell at you. I’m actually going to encourage you to enjoy the pity party you’re so determined to throw for yourself while thinking the worst
