Sorry with my fundamental questions but I have never used my APs till now.

Krithi kindly reply or anybody else who can help with my questions/clarification mentioned above kindly help me.

Thanks a lot
Best Regards,
You have to go and line up in the visa line NOT citizens/PR line (since you are not one). Just carry all relevant docs - EVL (if applicable), receipt notice copy of 485, both originals of AP, etc...

My final update on I485 journey

PD: Feb 27, 2006
Class: Eb2 India
Service Center Texas
Filed Aug 10th 2007
RFE Aug 16th 2008 for Birth Certificate
CPO email Aug 4th 2010
Decision email Aug 5th 2010
Approval I 797 letter in snail mail Aug 9th 2010
Post Decision Activity email Aug 11th 2010
Soft LUD on I 485 Aug 12th 2010
Welcome Letter in snail mail Aug 16th 2010
Physical Green Card Aug 18th 2010

PS: I did NOT open any SR or contact seneator or ask lawyer to get in touch with USCIS. Just waited patiently. Did my Finger Printing in October 2007. No FP after that did paper filing for EAD & AP so no FP for those as well. My advise is to hang in there. Not to open too many SR's but thats entirely upto your discretion. Some people swear it helped them for my case I did not use that option.

Hope this date line helps those who are waiting for their cards. Good luck to every one on forum. I will still be supporting IV and contributing to Wiki as always.

Default CPO email received

We finally got the CPO email for my wife and I today morning.

Story of my life. I complain about delay with my application. Someone joins me and tells me they are in the same boat and the very next day that someone leaves the boat and jumps into "greener" pastures. Everyone is leaving the boat and I seem to be left out

Who else are in my boat? (Application with an officer for over 2 weeks and still status = "Initial Review")

Dude, what makes you feel better? let me try, my case pd is Mar 18th 2005, RD july 2nd 2007 and ND July 28th 2007.
It is assigned to officer on 28th June, no issues with case, all are in place like name check, background check, finger prints valid till next year, officer touched my case on july 12th and 28th, no RFE sent so far as per IO and don't know why it is still sitting on officers desk. I did everything SR, 2 infopass, senators, congresswomen, Ombudsman, NSC follow up emails, SCOPSSCATTA email, nothing worked so far.

I think you will leave the boat before me, good luck.

My words exactly...

He should be happy that his case is atleast being looked at unlike others who really have no clue when it will be picked up.

Buddyinsd,

Please hang in there. I am sure you will get yours card soon...

For various reasons, I got my greencard 14 years after entering this country and 14years after getting my Ph.D. Life throws up challenges and we have to face them with courage.

There are many who are in the same boat where cases are in transit or with an officer for quite some time. I wished USCIS processes the case in order of PD rather than in a random fashion. Also they need to do it at TSC and NSC.

For all those waiting for approval, its does help to find out if a visa number has been requested for your application. My understanding is that all the applications which are ready for adjudication are moved to a separate area and visa number is requested for those.Infact if you can find out (I think the guys at Infopass only have access to that information. Not sure if the level 2 service does) it helps. If a visa number has been assigned or requested for your application it will get approved.

I am not sure if assigned to an officer or with an officer status has any material value when it comes to approval unless a visa number has been requested.

Default Approval

Hello everyone

Wanted to let everyone know of my experience. I dont physically have my card, but there is an approval notice on the USCIS website.

Priority date October 20th 2005

I opened a service request on Monday August 16th. The person on the other end of the line was extremely polite and nice. I told him I had a speaking engagement in Canada (which is the truth) and that if my case was expedited, I would not have to apply for a visa. He given me a SR number and asked me to wait for 30 days which I was prepared to do. However my case status changed online on August 19th. I am unsure as to whether this was because of the service request or things would have taken this route anyway.

Best wishes to people who are waiting
