I might be wrong but pretty sure unless USCIS has super fast way to port new FP of approved cases. Best is to call & find out because you are approved and your reason for call is valid.
How do you know that it will take 60 days to get FP loaded into USCIS DB? any source you can provide? the reason why i am asking was me and my spouse had our second FP done in July and August..i am suspecting that might be the reason why my case is pending..

Looks like our cases are very similar! I sent the app on 19th July, so must have reached there by 23rd July.. and I also have the ND as 18th Sept.

My case starts with LIN0726356*** Is yours something similar too?

Although my 485 wasnt transferred from TSC->NSC.

Default when was your FP done?

sin94,

what was the exact date you had your FP done in july? i am curious because i did my FP on 08/11/2009 and still waiting for approval..i am assuming that USCIS did not received my FP and Background check from FBI...

Application Type: I485, APPLICATION TO REGISTER PERMANENT RESIDENCE OR TO ADJUST STATUS Current Status: Approval notice sent On September 4, 2009

However our status hasnt changed from above notice to a CPO email and I am getting a bit worried if they could be any delays as I am planning on shifting home soon.

Coincedentely my wife just completed her 2nd FP on the 3rd of September (did mine in July) and then the change of status occurred. I am wondering if their could be a delay in that area.

I read somewhere in the forum that the card production is ordered only after the biometrics are entered into the system. How long should I wait before calling the USCIS or taking an infopass notice to find out when I should be receiving the cards.

sin94 is on a distinguished road
Default you are correct about the 60 days

I called the USCIS and got a service advisor (not IO), unfortunately she parroted the same advice you made that you have to wait 60 days before you could raise a service request and basically refused to answer anything else. Its a bad scenario since my wife job is having her commute for more than an hour and we have to wait for the cards before we could shift.

this circle of life with USCIS never ends.....

Default Order of emails??

So far I have received (all today - 9/17/2009)

1. CPO (morning) - email
2. Welcome Notice sent (with ADIT verbiage) - email
3. ----nothing yet

I believe the 3rd one will be "Approval notice sent" is that correct?

4. Welcome Notice by snail mail - correct?
5. Physical Cards (at home address) - correct?

Did anyone had to do anything special (ADIT processing etc) before cards were received?

Seniors enjoying GREEN plastic please enlighten!

Thanks,

Default CPO e-mail received!

Thanks to God, and all of you at IV!

Recd CPO e-mail for self/ wife at 5PM, suprizingly I did not see it for 14 minutes!

Very, very emotional still! I can still not get over the unfairness of the process!

All of those waiting - what probably worked for us was - a renewal application for our expired/ expiring APs/EADs! I sent the last with the cover letter on my official letterhead just last week! Probably, that is the reason we got it - even though we have RD in Aug 08!

God Bless! Hang on tight - the endless cave has a light at the end!

You will get another email in 2-3 days saying "approval notice sent"
This is the normal sequence.
There are people who did not get CPO email, but got GC cards with welcome and approval notices.

Qns !
1) Is this a correct site to find out local congressman(woman) -https://forms.house.gov/wyr/welcome.shtml ?
2) Do I get to talk to the representative directly or one of his immigration expert?
3) What information should I keep handy during the call?

Somehow I feel that I am going to miss the boat one more time Last LUD on my case is 31st March 2009 and no progress afterwards..
Geesee - Good news for you is its current next month as well. You should be cleared. This is what you do.

Go to United States House of Representatives, 111th Congress, 1st Session.
Type your zip code to find the representative. ( the zip code which USCIS has, as your address )
Call them and they will transfer to their immigration expert. Dont worry, they are pretty good.
Explain your case. Keep the 485 receipt number and the A# handy.

Also dont worry about LUD or SLUD. I never got either one from 2007 till 2009.

@ ruchi - thanks....It's a nice feeling, the wait being finally over ...looks like USCIS is in-orderly after approvals too - God knows when they will be consistent.
