Read uscis reference materials don't be panic if you receive any bad updates from uscis, consult with your attorney.
Do not just rely on an attorney!!!! Follow up your case from online tools at the end of the day. You are your own attorney,
You can always chat with Emma to open a filling question to your case.
Know your rights, and be honest!

Good luck.

EB3- ROW GC Approved!!! TSC
I never thought I would eventually see the day that I share my experience here. Immihelp literally kept hope alive for me. I was checking here every single day. The biggest take away is to make an account on myuscis.gov and check your status there. My journey has come to an end after 22 months of filing. Here’s my timeline.

PD January 2019
January 17 2020 - Received receipt notice after filing concurrently (everything except I-693 medical)
February 2020 - Got notice for biometric appointment
March 5 2020 - Did biometrics (fingerprints)
April & May 2020- Dependent and I received EAD combo card
August 2020- I-140 approved

February 8 2021 - Applied for renewal of combo card
March 25 2021 - Same fingerprints were applied for renewal.
September 7, 2021 - We sent a request for initial evidence for your Form I-485, Application to Register Permanent Residence or Adjust Status. (This was for Medicals)
September 22, 2021 - Did Medicals and gave sealed results to lawyer to mail.
October 7, 2021 -We received your response for Form I-485, Application to Register Permanent Residence or Adjust Status.
October 20, 2021 - Approval of I-485 supplement J
November 17, 2021 We ordered your new card!!!
November 18, 2021 We approved your Form I-485, Application to Register Permanent Residence or Adjust Status
November 19, 2021 Card Was Mailed To Me

Sounds cliche but do not give up people!!! Your day will come. I was reading approval messages here never thinking it would be me soon!! We had a long period of no movement and no updates from USCIS. It was just stuck on fingerprints were taken etc.
ALSO please LAWYER UP!! They are a good investment.
