I485 Approved EB2 NSC ROW
Hi All,

Just to share my experience. My I485 application was for me and spouse. We are living in different states. I live in NSC region, my spouse lives in TSC region.

Priority date: Jul 2015
PERM approval: Jan 2016
I140 application: Mar 2016 (not filing concurrent with I485)
I140 approval: Sep 2016

2016/10/11 (Day -2): Sent I485, I130, I785 (me and spouse)
2016/10/13 (Day 0): Applications received by USCIS
2016/10/24 (Day 11): Receipt notice (me)
2016/11/19 (Day 37): Biometrics notice (me)
2016/11/21 (Day 39): Receipt notice (spouse) it took ~6 weeks
2016/12/07 (Day 55): Biometrics done (me)
2016/12/24 (Day 72): Biometrics notice (spouse)
2016/12/30 (Day 78): EAD/AP (spouse)
2017/01/10 (Day 89): Biometrics done (spouse)
2017/01/17 (Day 96): EAD/AP (me)
2017/03/31 (Day 169): I485 approval (me) ~5.5 months processing time
Spouse's I485 is still pending.

Although me and spouse filed together, it seems that our application is treated as two separate cases. Probably because we are newly weds and living separately.

EB1 - I131 - Case Approval Was Certified By USCIS

Any body got the below status update for I131. Today, I see status changed for my kid's AP with the below message.

"Case Approval Was Certified By USCIS - On March 28, 2017, we certified the approval of your Form I-131, Application For USCIS Travel Document, Receipt Number XXXXXX, and sent it to the appropriate appellate office. That office will send you a final decision"

can any one please let me know the exact meaning of this message. Is the mean 131 is approved ?

PD: 1/6/17 @ TSC

I-485 Pending TSC
   USCIS received my application for I-485 on Oct 07, 2016. Status updated to "Fingerprint Fee received" on October 18th. Biometrics completed. However, there has been no change in case status and no update in the case ever since then. Looks like i am outside normal processing times.

Is anyone in the same timeline as me still waiting for response from USCIS at Texas Service Center?

My company filed concurrently (I-140, I-131 and I-485) on 03/08/2017.

I haven't received receipt notice yet. How much time does it normally take?

Is there a way to contact USCIS for this?
