I submitted by i140 NIW application in July 2016. Received EAD card but no response yet in i140 approval. Submitted through TSC. Does anyone have a similar timeline and also have got no response or may have received a response from uscis?
I wanted to share my experience and thank all the contributors to this forum. It has helped me tremendously in the very long and stressful process of getting my green card.
Here is my timeline.
- PERM filed: Nov 2015
- PERM approved: April 2016
- Filed I-140, I-485 on May 31st, 2016 for me
- July 2016: received EAD for me
- Aug 2016: Filed I-485 for my husband
- Oct 2016: received my husband's EAD
- Nov 2016, upgraded I-140 to premium processing
- Dec 2016 - I-140 approved
- March 3, 2016 - I-485 approved for me. My husband got a RFE :)
- March 10, 2016: GC delivered
It took 9 months to get my I-485 approved. It was very stressful, but now, all is better. We are supplying documents for the RFE next week and it should be approved pretty fast after that.
PERM- June 2015
I140/485 filed concurrently 10/03/2016
I140 approved 10/07/2016
RFE received by USCIS 02/23/17
Green card approved 03/11/2017
Green card received 03/14/2017
Good luck everyone. This forum has been very helpful to me. Be patient you’re next…
Nebraska has updated the website a couple of times recently and none of the dates has changed. I print each update to track the changes.. Are they working on anything? I do not think these dates mean anything. Some people get approved very quickly and some have been waiting for a long time. It seems to be very random.
Processing at Nebraska Service Center and my case is in eb1 category with priority date 30th August,2016. I140 got approved on 14th October,2016 and received combo card on 28th January,2017 but I485 status is still "Fingerprint fee was received". Is anyone here who received green card recently?please share your experience....I am so worried about it.

I originally sent the applications back in July 23rd, but USCIS made a mistake and thought my PD was not current (which was), and returned my applications.
Here is my timeline: EB3 NSC
09/03 - Applications for (I-140, I-485) received (with PP for I-140)
09/12 - I-485 status changed to "finger print fee" received
09/13 - I-140 approved
10/07 - Fingerprint appointment notice
10/21 - Fingerprint done
10/07 - My wife's Combo card received
10/17 - My combo card received
03/03 - I-485 case status changed to "Card in production" for my wife and me
03/03 - I-485 case status changed to "Approved" (I wonder why the status changed from production to approved, which seems strange)
There has been no status change since.
Here are my few questions:
1. Are we approved and done?
2. What's my next expected case status? (Approval notice sent? or Card mailed?)
3. When can my wife leave the country and come back? (She needs to visit our country for an urgent issue)
