How much time to receive GC??

Hello

We applied for GC for my mother-in-law under family category (we are US citizens). Her visa was approved and she landed in US on 5th December 2015. We received her SSN on 14th Decmber. It has been over a month now but still no sign of green card yet. I thought it takes about 3 weeks, and I understand that with Christmas holidays, it could have taken little long, but now it has been almost 5 weeks. Is this normal or I need to contact someone?

Is there a site where I can check the status?

Thanks.

It will take about 45 days to 60 days from POE.

I dont know how much time it takes for SSN, but we received it within 7-10 days of landing.

Are you sure you opted to have the SSN mailed automatically to you (it was on one of the forms)?

Yes, I did. I'll just call and talk to them and see what's going on. I completely forgot about the timing of the SSN cards -- I was happy they are here and kept an eye out for the green cards.

Thanks!

I remember to have used the same site where I payed the GC (if you don't remember let me know). You would need the confirmation number to check the status though...
How long did it take for your mother-in-low to get the interview, from the time you applied?

We received the GC last Friday. It took 46 days to get it.

I dont exactly remember the time it took for the interview as we put the case on hold for a while by not submitting the documents ASAP.

"Immigration" will not create problems. It's only that uneducated airline staff may create problems.
