Hi pritamr,
congratulations again.
I need some info, after your I-140 approved you said that you joined in different company, did you used AC21 ? did you send AC21 papers to USCIS ?
your previous company not revoked your I-140 ?

I am wondering if we use AC21, we can carry the same priority date ?

Thanks
BunnyGC

After I-485 Approval ?

pritamr said:
I received my Green Card yesterday in mail. Looks cool. :)
Hi Pritamr,

I am immensly pleased to share with you that, I have just seen an email that my I-485 has been approved. I am unable to belive it. I will double check all the EAC-----numbers with the receipt notice on Monday, which is in attorney's office.
Meanwhile can you please answer my question ?

After I-485 approval howlong does it take to get the card ?
And how the message changes in case status login ?
I remember, you were writing that case status changed to "card ordered"
Can you please write on what will happen after I-485 approval notice email.

Regards,
Amagilaj

WorryforGC,

Thank You. Please bear with me for short time.
I am doubtful about my receipt number.....
I want to double check it.....with attorney's office.
That is why I did not share with all of our forum friends.
I need to tally the EAC number with the original receipt notice. Last time attorney gave me the numbers over phone.

Thank You. :)

I-485 Approval

Dear All,

It has been a great surprise to see the I- 485 approval email, on this
Saturday, stating that this cas has been approved on 03/31/2006, which I
have seen on Sunday late. Here are my case perticulars;

EB2/VSC:
LC PD : June 2000 ( RIR)
140/485 : RD 09/26/05, ND 10/03/05

140 : AD 03/24/06. Not even is a single LUD
485 : AD 03/31/06. Not even is a single LUD
Email recived on 04/01/06.
I did not apply for EAD and AP.
Spouse : I-485 RD : 09/26/05, AD:03/31/06.

Intresting thing is I-485 got approved exactly in a week of I-140 approval.

Will stay in touch. Thank You. OMNV

Congratulations to sreesai and Amagilaj and others with final approvals.
This is such a positive thread, I have been with this forum from the days when my Labor was dead, first with the DOL and then with the Backlog Cntr. Then I became part of the 140 - 485 thread, this thread is so much more positive.
Coming here one sees notices which lift hope because there's always someone who has good news to share.

Keep those spirits up.

FP code for 485 approval & GC to be ordered

Both FP1 and FP2 in my case were Code 1. Does that mean I would have to wait for another FP (Code 2 or Code 3 - Biometrics), in order for my I-485 to be approved and the card to be ordered ?

I would appreciate any information on this.

Thanks in advance !

485 Approved

Finally our (mine and Spouse) application are approved. See below for details.

I was a silent reader of this tracker for the past few years. I have found this tracker very helpful in many ways.

Both our application were filed together. Both of us had our finger printing together. We got our AP/EAD approved almost at the same time (mine came 1 day after my spouse).

My priority dates become current this month.

My I-485 message never changed from the beginning. After my finger printing, just had a LUD. I never got a message saying that finger printing results received and case processing resumed. The first message change on my 485 application was that it was approved. Both of our cases were approved on the same day.

Good luck for all the others that are waiting for their turn.

I dont think you have anything to be worried about, although once on GC you have to maintain 6 months presence in the US to maintain your permanent resident status. There is a form you can fill to ask for a 2 yr leave of absence to circumvent even that rule but I am sure you know all that.

Even so, I would definitely check with my lawyer to be absolutely sure.

One Q for you, what is the precise date of your LC priority date. I am 10 April and have been seeing a lot of March 02 approvals - so just wondering.

Congrats and Best Wishes for the future.
