EB3 Row Approved
Guys, I think finally my day has arrived. I just chatted with Emma this morning and they confirmed my case was approved yesterday. None of the 2 websites shows that information. I originally applied to Texas. They transferred my case to NBC back on March. They never scheduled an interview and I submitted medicals with application. Agent mentioned up to 60 days to get card on the mail. Hopefully I get it very soon.

PD is May 1 2019
RD July 30 2019

If any questions feel free to ask.

EB3 ROW- One year after interview and after 22 months of submission of I-485
Hello all,

We had our adjustment of status interview on oct 24th 2019. At the end of the interview, officer stated we will hear the decision in mail within two weeks. Unfortunately that did not happen and here I am. After 5 SR's and multiple phone calls all I got was the default response of pending review.

However, when my lawyer submitted SR this time, they responded to the SR very next day with response as "Your case is currently under review.
You should receive a decision or notice of other action within 60 days of the date of this letter"

Has anyone here heard this response before or has experienced this response? Is it the light at the end of the tunnel?

I am really frustrated at this point..

Thank you!

No receipt number after 3 weeks and no news on I-140
Hello everyone! My I-485 application package was delivered to USCIS on Oct 1. It’s been 3 weeks and I still don’t have any receipt notice. Does it usually take this long before receipt notices are issued? Is anyone experiencing the same thing?

Also, my I-140 (EB3) was filed since March 2020, with a priority date of March 31, 2020. October is almost ending and it still hasn’t been approved. Any ideas what might be the cause?

I appreciate your feedback and responses!

Our Greencard experience
Thank you to this website for all the experiences. I am adding ours below
We moved from India to USA in Jan2017: landed in USA with L1A visa for family. My wife was primary and I along with our two daughter were L2. After landing, I applied for EAD for myself being a dependent and it was issued within 45 days.
Jan:2018 lawyer starts process of the green card
March 2018: papers filed for application for Employment based Greencard
April2019: Interview with USCIS as a family. Officer mentions that’s since priority date is not current, case under review.

Case shows regression and priority date was showing Jan 2015.

August 2019: we go back to Chennai as a family to get L1A family visa extended. We get visa extended till August 2022.

Jan 2020: case has still not moved much and now priority date becomes March 2015.

October 2020: priority date becomes current as per bulletin. On 14th October we get green card for entire family for 10 years

Priority date definitely moved ahead during COVID.

Hang in there to all applicants and hopefully you can get your soon.

New website to check status
Hi all , just a little information to share about case updates. Uscis website is going through some technical issues so is not able to update the cases that's why we are not getting updates online 😑. I have an account on dhs website which is updating the information timely. So I would suggest making an account on that website if you want to be updated online and timely.
Here's the link
