Hi guys,

I got 6 emails this morning (3 for Card ordered message, 3 for approval notice sent messages) regarding my green card application approval. It is quite exciting and I double checked the receit number and verified it is mine.

Still need to wait to get the approvals for my wife.

Cheers!

Hi Congratulations! It looks like you filed in the EB-1 OR category - why did it take so long? Where you stuck in name check? Did you take any affirmative measures like filing a WOM etc?

I filed in the EB1-OR in Jan 2005 - stuck in name check.

Hi Manny

Iam not sure what is your other Evaluation. Was it done Course by Course

Regarding your approach for Equivalent : Just a word of caution

When you say Bachelors or Equivalent the Equivalent has to be matching with the Bachelors. It cannot be a lesser Degree ( in this case the 3 Years you have).USCIS may not buy that arugument as otherwise it will become a precedence. They can aapprove cases based on Individual valuations.

Attorney's suggest to go for PERM which is the best bet for 3 Year Degree Guys and advise to mention Bachelors or Associate or equivalent ( best is Just Associate or Equ) in New PERM.

Let us know how your case goes. This might be useful for others

Saknia,
I reckon you indicate that a course-by-course evaluation will work better instead of trying to make the "equivalent" argument.

Has anyone got 140 approval by submitting such an evaluation (3yr=4yr US)? Did USCIS accept that evaluator as an authoritative source? Please PM me details of evaluator in that case.
Many thanks!!

We got the approval letter from Atlanta DO dated 11/28. It says service center will mail the card in 9 to 12 months. Since it was in local office. We did not see any LUD.
Waht is next?
When should I expect the actual card?
Thank you everybody for the valuable information and the support.
Good Luck. I hope everybody will hear the good news for their cases very soon.

card mailed

Hi,

I got 3 more messages this morning regarding "card mailed."

my case is EB1 OR. It took so long because of name check. I did not do anything particular, just wait as most folks here do. In late October after our 2nd FP, I visited local congressman's office and learnt that our name checks were done.

Inquiries do not provide any clue. One suggestion I can make to the folks here waiting for GC approval is to contact your local congressman's office. There they can directly request to have the details of the cases. In my case, they informed me that our name check was finished and cases were ready for judification.

with best wishes,

--

I just checked my email. I was very surprised to see this case update. 3 same emails saying that new card ordered. What does this means? Senator office told me today that VSC will transfer my case to local office. Hope this is true and this is the end of my journey. I filed I485 in March 05. EB2.

By the way, I did not receive the approval notice or update. Is this normal?

Below is my current case status:

_________________________________
Current Status: Card production ordered.

On December 15, 2006, we ordered production of your new card. Please allow 30 days for your card to be mailed to you. If we need something from you we will contact you.
