I didn't see any change on line either. sames like my parent's time lines are closely following your's

Sounds good, except u might want to bear in mind that this very last step here is a part of ways, since everything afterwards is a completely different process.... petitioning for parents is not exactly the same as petitioning for spouse.

Good Luck.

Thanks for the info, nkumar

I have not applied yet but will be applying soon. I am trying to get the application fees reimbursed from my employer and they need some kind of receipt from USCIS showing the fees in order to reimburse me. What are the amounts shown on both receipts?
The amounts shown are the amounts paid- I-130 shows $355 and I-485 shows $1010.

Really! I thought both of them are direct relatives, with no waiting period, same documents... and if one is lucky, the whole process may finish in a couple of months (that's my impression after reading this forum), correct me if I am wrong. I was just amazed that how similar the time lines were so far.

LUD changed to 7/14/08 for i-485, 7/11/08 for i-130, the messages are still the old ones, without mentioning the FP was done on 7/12/08
Most people see the same thing. USCIS updates the LUD after fingerprints, but doesn't change the message.

You now begin your 40-day wait for the the interview letter (90% of spouses). Or a transfer to your regional service center if they choose not to interview you (90% of parents).

I'm just realizing something, lots of people on my N-400 thread (eg citizen08) are applying for I-130/I-485s now.

I'm hoping the rush that caused 10-month delays in N-400s won't start to cause a backlog in I-130/I-485s.

Just to update my situation. We filed through a lawyer for a green card for my wife in June. It was received by the USCIS in June and a week later we received the notice for fingerprinting. Her fingerprinting will be done soon, only a few weeks after they received her application.

Hopefully, it keeps going as fast and smoothly as it has been going.

Interview Date

Hi all,
Generally how long does it take to receive the interview after the biometrics appointment? I have my biometrics appointment on 07/22/08. And we are(myself and my wife) planning to travel internationally in October end (hopefully I'll receive my I-131 by then) How long does it take to get an interview letter and actual interview after biometrics for normal cases. At least the interview letter will help us booking for our travel dates.

Here is my timeline:

DO: San Diego, CA
6/24/08 Application mailed I-130, I-485, I-765, I-131, I-864, G-325
6/25/08 Forms received
7/03/08 All NOA received
07/10/08 Received Biometrics Notification
07/22/08 Biometrics appointment
