I-485 Approved May 5 VSC

Hi all -

This thread has been tremendously useful to me in my quest for permanent residency. I am pleased to report that my I-485 has been approved, and in a relatively short period of time, judging by the experiences of so many here. Below are the details - I hope they help somebody.

Best of luck to everybody!

Friends,

I received my GC card and left for India the next day.

Had no problems returning back. took a minute to swipe the card, the only question asked was how long we were out of US.

Had no RFE in 140/485 for anyone in my case


Good Luck everyone...

Time for 485 Approval after PD Curr at VAC?

Couple of Questions

1. How much time it takes after PD is current (If PD is current and I140 is approved, then what is the average time needed for I485 approval?
2. Is name check is initiated after application filing or after date is current? I received FP after concurrent filing which is filled just before retrogression.
3. Any one tracking 485 Approval at VAC? Any pattern?

/O..

From recent approval trend in VSC, I get a hint that it takes 1 week to 3 months after PD is current in VSC. Some lucky guys can get approval less than a month. But many need 2-3 months.

I hope if it is 2-3 months this means name check runs after date is current. Old cases which were current for some time and got name check done gets approval fast. My one cent guess.

I subscribe to the 2 - 3 month theory as well.
My PD became current in April 2006 and had my fingerprinting etc done in Oct of 2005. I am keeping my fingers crossed for a June-July 2006 approval.

USCIS I-485 Processing Date

spidey said:
Turned out to be amongst the lucky ones I guess....

Congrats !

How accurate are the USCIS I-485 Processing Date? I filed my I-485 on 02/03/06 with PD Nov '99 (EB3). When can I expect them to approve my application. I had my FP on 03/31/06 and I have seen 4-5 LUD so far.

Thanks.

Thanks.
The 485 processing dates, in my opinion are saying this:
USCIS guarantees that all applications received prior to the date have been processed (whether approved, denied or RFE'd) -
It does not say that any applications received AFTER that date have NOT been processed..... clearly my receipt date was after but I got an approval... and many others here....
goodluck... also just my opinion..

GC approved

485 Approved

6/6/06. I saw the magic e-mails in my Inbox. Both me and my wife's case is approved. Didn't see any message change. However, didn't look at the USCIS site for about a week so wouldn't know if the mesage has changed.

Here are my case details ...

LC: VA, RIR, EB2, PD 01/2003, 45 day letter 12/2005, AD God knows when
Sub Labor: 2000 (EB3) India
I 140: RD 11/12/05, AD 01/24/06 :) :D
I-485: RD 12/24/05, LUD 3/24/06 (No Message change), AD 6/6/06
FP: 01/17/06 (code 3) :)
Case Status: "On June 6, 2006, the card order was completed and we mailed the applicant's new card directly to him or her." :)

Looks like USCIS is trying to clear all cases within the 6 months time frame as they have stated (if security checks have been cleared).

Good luck to all
