During my application for green card, this site was immensely helpful for me. As I was going through separate websites on internet on the topic of how long does the entire process take, I realized that most of the experiences posted were not very good, and can cause a lot of anxiety. I am writing to contribute my positive experience with USCIS in our application. Hopefully new applicants will find some peace by reading about a positive experience.

08/02/2015 - I-140 filed with premium processing received by USCIS
08/04/2015 - USCIS receipt notice
08/17/2015 - RFE received
09/04/2015 - Response to RFE received
09/10/2015 - Approved I-140
09/14/2015 - Received I-140 approval
09/29/2015 - I-485/I-765/I-131 filed
10/05/2015 - Finger printing fees was approved
10/17/2015 - Received notice for Biometrics
11/15/2015 - Biometrics done
12/16/2015 - Filed I-765 service request (for approaching regulatory time frame)
12/18/2015 - I-765 approved
12/27/2015 - Received EAD/parole combo card
01/07/2016 - I-485 approved
01/14/2016 - Received GC and I-485 approval.

Hopefully people will find this experience helpful. As a way of appeal, I would encourage people to post their positive experiences on the forum as well, so that people looking for information on timelines of processing can get more balanced information.

Thanks so much for posting this! This is very helpful!

Did you apply alone or with your family? What is your processing center?

thank you!

I applied along with my wife (she being the beneficiary of a dependent petition).

The service center was Nebraska.

Thanks for this - mine went in to the same Service center 3 weeks after yours (Oct 20th 2015). Hoping its on a similar timeline. Weirdly I got our EAD/AP cards through a week earlier than you did - still no sign of the holy grail.....

Hi Alchemist!

Was your wife's case approved the same day as yours?

My husbands's case just got approved yesterday, but mine still reads "Fingerprint fee received". Is that normal?

Yes, ours were approved on the same day. Although I think that there is no necessity that the petitions are approved on the same day.
