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 ?

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?

Hi everyone, thank you for sharing your time line, it's been really helpful.
Here is mine so far:

Priority Date: 8.30.2016

11/23/2016: I-485, I-140 (Premium), I-765 and I-131 were submitted all together.
12/06/2016: I-140 Approved
12/07/2016: Biometrics notice
12/12/2016: EAD Card received
12/23/2016: Biometrics completed

My I-485 is still in status "Fingerprint Fee Was Received".
Didn't get any RFE so I'm trying to think that "No news is good news".
It's been 4 months since my I-485 case was received and I know it might be too early to ask but I really find it hard to read NSC processing times.

According to their last update for January 31st they are processing cases received at July 2nd, is it safe to say that they're currently processing my case or they still didn't get to my case yet?

Thank you guys and Good luck!

According to the USCIS processing center website, TSC is processing I-485's as of 10/04/16. Anybody else has a similar timeline to mine who is either waiting/ gotten approved?

Status of I-485 remained as " Fingerprint fee was received" for two of us and "Case was received" for my son, since Dec 2nd.

I think I am still within the timeline and hope this info helps other EB1C/NSC filers from the month of Dec'16.

I-485 Filed with TSC
  I have filed I-485 with Texas Service Center in October 2016. Case status still says "Fingerprint Fee received". Based on the processing dates updated from USCIS website, my case is outside normal processing time.

Is anyone in the same boat as me? Confused as to what the next steps are. Please advise.

Thank you!
