Yes I touched it, finally the Physical GC.
Yes its over its over: I touched it and I smelled it , got emotional when I opened the priority mail envelope, yeah it was there it looked green with my name on it. All the memories rushed into my mind, the flashbacks of almost 9 yrs, those hard times, struggle, pain, cry, job loss, losing H1b status, jobless for months, change of status from one to another, change of jobs, RFE, the fear of losing status, anxieties, sleepless nights etc etc. what a painful ride. I can write novel about its journey. Thank God it's finally over. I hope you all get yours too. sorry for writing too much just got emotional.

Received Green Cards!
My family and I received our green cards last week. I wanted to thank this forum for all the support and guidance that you guys have provided me with over the course of the last 3 years.

Category : EB-1 (C)
Country of Chargeability: India
Filing Type: Concurrent
Filing Date : 31-May-2017
Office: Nebraska (later moved to NBC)
Interview Field Office: Chicago, IL

I-140 Approval Date: 08-Jun-2018
I-485 Approval Date: 13-Aug-2020

We applied for EADs initially in 2017, then 2018 and 2020 as well.

We received our Green Cards on 03-Sep-2020.

While EB-1 dates have traditionally been "Current", our wait times did cause some level of frustration, given that our expectation was to receive the green card within a year of applying. However, considering that we waited for considerably lesser time compared to those in EB-2 and EB-3 queues, feel lucky, and more importantly, given the current circumstances, we certainly feel relieved about getting our green cards!

I have been a silent reader and sharing my experience all through out my entire journey. I arrived in US as H1B since 2014. Struggled a lot along the way, there were ups and downs, and when I had a serious talks with my employer and agreed to file sponsorship - it just gave me hope. It wasn't easy to live and work in USA not knowing your future, fearing what tomorrow brings me with my family. But I remained calm and took day by day issues because life must go on. I knew my employer was taking advantage of our situation but I kept myself busy and focused on whats ahead of us. Prayers will help and encourage the same for you guys to do the same. Patience:-)

Its a long line that we have to endure, but in time you're time will be up and you'd feel free. . .at last!

Thank you everyone who have shared their experiences and thoughts, I surely benefited from it and learned a lot. KEEP SAFE.
