Hello folks,

I wrote this fourm several times but I wanted to repeat one more time.

Our case is

Interview: 08/26/2019 held in NYC Federal Building
Case was approved on 09/06/2019 and approval notice came to our mail. But our cards never produced or sent (As per the approval noticeGC supposed to be sent in 2-3 weeks). We called USCIS several but they told us to wait 60 days. So Today is 60th day. We called USCIS and they opened an inquiry about this. They told us they will contact us till 20th of November.. Fingers crossed..

Today I received my approval notice through mail too. But no update on the USCIS website. Very happy and I would like to say to everyone "Thank you!". I hope everyone here soon will receive good news.

I just got my approval notice through the mail. No updates what so ever by text or by email or via the multiple USCIS websites/apps. I'm so happy, I was losing hope day after day.

Started the paperwork for the PERM May 4th, 2018
Got it done and submitted by Dec 20th, 2018 (My priority date)
Got my PERM approved April 3rd, 2019
Started concurrent filling for my I-140/I-485 right away
Scheduled medical appointment for Apr 9th, 2019, received results on Apr 12th, 2019
Filed Premium I-140 and I-485 on Apr 24th, 2019
Receipt Date Apr 25th, 2019
Got the I-140 approval notice back May 10th, 2019
Heard back from USCIS Jul 16th, 2019: Interview was scheduled
Interview at SF field office on Aug 26th, 2019 (took 30 minutes, no tricky questions, I had all the files with me): Hit by retrogression
Got the I-1485 approved Oct 30th, 2019 and the noticed arrived by mail Nov 4th, 2019.

The card should arrive soon.

Online status still shows: "Interview was scheduled", it's been exactly 111 days today.

Thank you so much for everyone spending so much time here to help others in need and for putting together this spreadsheet to make sense of the post-retrogression approval rates. It was life-saving!.

Best of luck to all of you! You're almost there!

Don't just look at your status at egov but also at "https://my.uscis.gov" because I did not get any update from egov but my latest status at https://my.uscis.gov is "Case was approved" and got my approval notice today.

Hi all,

I'm still waiting for my green card (interview under retrogression August 26th) but today I got a USPS update showing me a letter from USCIS is incoming. Is that a good sign or a bad sign? Has anyone gotten any notice from USCIS while waiting for their green cards?

Thank you in advance, this thing got me a bit stressed out
