My wife's I-485 was approved on 4/18 and received her greencard on 4/25 but my I-485 still "fingerprint fee was received".
Is this normal? My wife was the applicant and I filed as a dependent spouse. My lawyer said it's a normal operating procedure but most of the cases that I read in this forum I-485 for both applicant and their dependents were approved at the same time.
Did anyone had similar experience that can be shared?
