Exclamation PD not current but got I-485 approval email

Earlier today I got an email from USCIS that said
"Application Type: I485 , APPLICATION TO REGISTER PERMANENT RESIDENCE OR TO ADJUST STATUS

Current Status: Card production ordered.

On June 29, 2008, 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. If you move before you receive the card, call customer service. You can also receive automatic e-mail updates as we process your case. Just follow the link below to register."

Then by the evening my I-485 said
"Application Type: I485 , APPLICATION TO REGISTER PERMANENT RESIDENCE OR TO ADJUST STATUS

Current Status: Notice mailed welcoming the new permanent resident.

On June 30, 2008, we mailed you a notice that we had registered this customer's new permanent resident status. Please follow any instructions on the notice. Your new permanent resident card should be mailed within 60 days following this registration or after you complete any ADIT processing referred to in the welcome notice, whichever is later. If you move before you get your new card call customer service. You can also receive automatic e-mail updates as we process your case. Just follow the link below to register."

Problem My EB2 PD is not current, is this a system glitch or did I get GC?

No its I-485 I just cut and pasted the two emails I received, first at 10am then the second at 3 pm check online and the system had same messages. If its true I am having a party wow man thanks I did come to US in 1997. I do have a labor which was approved under RIR PD date 2004 but the employer refused to file I-140. Then again filed PERM in 2007 under EB2 and filed I-140/I-485 based on this PERM

I am glad that you received the notice. It can be a result of either manual fault or imputting wrong application numbers.
Pls consult an experienced attorney and make sure that they dont come back after you once they detect their mistake.

Good Luck

This is very interesting. Please keep us posted on future developments like when you get your card. Lot of us have been debating about RD and ND. The fact that you have got an RFE on your 485 application is also interesting. It could really be your GC.
Have you recently applied for you EAD? They might have approved your EAD and updated your status for the 485 app by mistake. Just trying to over analyze the situation . Anyway keep your fingers crossed till you get your physical cards.

Default Wait untill you receive the Card and Call USCIS

Even if they approve the GC, they can always revoke and ask you to return the card. This has happened somebody, I don't remmeber which forun I read about it. Call them up and inform them that your PD is not current. You can even go to local ASC and talk to an IO. If you have an attorney, inform him/her.

Congrats.

Not to scare you but USCIS Can make mistakes.

In our company we have an immigration chat alias and my colleague' friend's
wife's GC was approved and after a couple of months she got a mail saying that
her GC was approved by mistake and it is being revoked!

She hadn't event applied for EAD renewal since her GC was approved.

Now I am not making it up.
I don't have any more details about this case but I read this on our alias.

Did you apply in EB-1? If not, then .....


I don't want to scare you, but this could be pose problems for you down the line. Check Murthy bulletin....Murthy explicitly asked USCIS to revoke this earlier decision of GC approval for a client whose PD was not current....a case very similar to yours...as they anticipated lots of issues down the line. The topic of the bulletin if i remember correctly is "when GC approval is not good news" or something.

This was a USCIS error and there's a high probability will be cought sooner or later, at which point USCIS will revoke their earlier decision.

Congratulations on your green card approval. Make sure you talk to your attorney also about this. I have seen an article on Muthy.com about green card approvals due to USCIS error.

If USCIS realizes their mistake and revokes an approved I485, will they also take the necessary steps to restore the previous status of the applicant? i.e. H1/H4/AOS/EAD or what ever the wrongly approved person had prior to the approval mistake?

I had a 2004 PD Labor RIR and my 2006 I-140 used that labor date, because I merely mentioned to an IO at TSC that I had a previously filed labor. My lawyer was shocked when it happened...had never seen it.

So, I wonder if they used your 2004 RIR as your PD. Even then EB 2 is supposed to be unavailable. Oh well, it might help to speak to an IO to get your I-140 PD changed...maybe...

EB2 India is current for April 2004. So may be they did use 2004 RIR as PD. Check with your lawyer, and see if they are aware of this.

Hopefully, as others suggested, it is a case where they took your 2004 RIR labor date and approved your current petition when that date was current.

Either way, wish you the very best.

Every approval means one less wasted visa number; and one person out of the GC queue.
