Approved

My case has been approved today. The cases of my spouse and daughter are also approved together. I called VSC in the morning and the officer told me that the cases just approved. And now at 9:00 pm the online status changed to approved for all of us. I had to contact congressman and they send inquiry just yesterday and today morning cases approved. It may be that they were just sitting on the files (intentianally?). I realized that this forum is more helpful than attorney. I would like to thank Mr. Khanna for providing this forum and all the participants for their helpful mails. Hope for the approvals for all who has been waiting for long like me.

Cheers!

A tip for calling the Vermont center

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Finally got the VSC center

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Please call the 1-800-375-5283 NSC and follow the below steps. Here is the sequence of steps i followed to get to this:

Press 1 (for english),
press 2 (for existing case),
press 6 (for case statues etc),
then press 1( for knowing your receipt no.),
enter the receipt # to get the automated response saying blah blah blah and also at the end saying this is the most upto date information on your case and our customer the same info national customer service agents have (i totally agree with this).
Then choose to continue to the next step "press 3" . choose 3
Listen to the options-
Option 4 "if you feel if you submitted together and one of the applications is left out and not processed (don't remmember the exact message text ..but something about companion case "

You get transferred to VSC after choosing option 4.

If you call after VSC operating hours you will be asked to call the National Service center with this message
""there are no immigration officers at this service center at this time, please call the USCIS national customer service center".


Hope this helps!

Congrats !

I did call several times, but everytime I got something like "I am sorry, due to a temperary problem of our system, we are unable to obtain your record. Please call again at aother time...." something like that. What should I do? Keep calling or there is problem with my receipt number?

I also tried my daughter's receipt number, and it got through. After i was told to be transfered to VCS, and a very long blah blah blah.. and options.. I seems come back to the main manu again.... like a dead loop. ... what is so wrong, then ???

Thanks!

Well.. finally got something - good or bad ...

case was transfered to local office yesturday ... the reason i think is that as dependents, my wife and child cases were all transfered last year Aug. So now they are finally come back together.... not bad, becasue anyway, it moves to somewhere more predictable... about 3 month for an interview, i think.

My details - no LUD update

This forum used to be very active before and I was wondering why it has become quiet. My details are:
EB1-OR concurrently filed at VSC - RD April 29 2004, ND May 28 2004.
I-140 AD 1/5/05
FP 4/7/05
I-485 LUD 4/8/05, no message change and no updates since then.

Called FBI, they said they sent back the fingerprints to USCIS the very same day (4/7/05), so I guess my LUD of 4/8/05 reflects that.

I'm a little worried as most people around my FP date seem to have received several updates after that, and I haven't even gotten a "Fingerprints received" message. Is anybody else in this position? Has anybody around my FP date been approved recently?
Thanks a lot.

Finally Approved after 2 1/2 Years of Agony!

My I-485 was finally approved after exactly 2.5 years. My wife's LUD also changed but the online status hasn't. Waiting to see whether we both receive our approval notices at the same time.

In our case, calling our Congressman worked. Oherwise, I feel my application would have stayed in the infinite (pending) loop and never gotton approved. The lazy slobs at VSC don't absolutely care if your case sits on the shelf for a few years. The Congressman's office called VSC and made sure that our cases went to the "Congressional Department" at the VSC. It was only then that we got our FP2 notices!

Anyways, I'll feel relieved after I see the Notices in my hand!! :)

Hey Pandas

Great for you and your wife ! I am so happy. Time for celebration !

Guys: any advice for changing address when you move ? Is it better to mail
in the form (I think AR11) or just call the 1800 number ? I wouldn't like to
have to answer too many questions, I changed job a couple months after the card. It should bew fine but better safe than sorry. The form has a question
on who your employer is ... I'd rather not answer just to be on the safe side ...

Cheers,

Pandas,
Congratulations! It has been a while and good to see that even long-timers are getting eventually approved! It looks like your case was not on-hold due to FBI name-check - a common reason for other applications to hang around for years past the processing time.

Mendieta,
As far as I know AR11 has to be filed by law shortly after you move, within ~10-20 days. There is no 1-800 number substitution for that. 1-800 changes your address on your pending INS applications, AR11 is an overall "alien locator" form. I do not think that INS will make any inferances from that form about your new employer with regard to your recent GC approval. They should have a specific reason for doing that. Well, after you become USC you will stop worring about all these forms. :)
