Has anyone heard back from Texas Service Center recently?
We submitted our i485 (EB2) on March 18th and haven't heard back from them. Apparently, they haven't updated the processing times for December yet either.

Is anyone in the same situation as us? How long should we expect to wait more to get i485 approved?

Hey there,
Has any one had their AP, EAD cases approved from Texas Service center?
It's been a couple of months since I applied, got my bio metrics done over a month ago. I was hoping to get the combo card by now, Has anyone had any approvals from TSC lately? Is it coz of the holidays? Will I have to wait until after new years day to actually hear anything from them? Would be nice to know if anyone have gotten any recent approvals from TSC.

Thank you

Since I found this forum to be very helpful and have certainly helped me in understanding more about the whole process, the following is my timeline:

12/2016: PERM approved
1/2016: Filed I-140 and I-140 concurrently with Nebraska Service Center(NSC)
2/2016: Biometrics
3/2016: EAD and AP combo card received
4/2016: Second Biomterics
6/2016: I-140 approved
8/2016: Case transferred from NSC to local field office. In person interview at local field office. Reason is that biometrics were not successful. Had to go submit police reports from all jurisdictions I lived in the past 5 years. Visa retrogression - had to wait until after 10/1 for I-485 to be approved. Case was transferred to MSC and then Texas Service Center.
11/2016: RFE requested. a) Since 8/1, a new item was added to physical examination, had to return to civil surgeon to complete that test and submit updated test result b) Updated police report c) Updated employment verification.
12/2016: Submitted service request. I-485 approved yesterday.

It has been a longer than usual process as EB-2 cases usually do not require interviews but it is worth the wait. A great Christmas present and wonderful note to end the year.

Currently I-485 processing time says April 2, 2016. Generally how accurate is this? Is there anybody here who filed after April 2 and have already gotten their GC?

  Did anyone obtain I-485 approvals recently, especially from Texas service center? Feels like a long wait. The Receipt numbers following mine have been approved, but no answer yet on mine. Status still says "Fingerprint fee received".

Interesting enough, the processing times for the service centers have not even been updated either this month.

Thank you.

I concurrently filed my I-485 and I-140 under EB-1B on July 21, 2016. I-140 got approved in 7 days. Received EAD/AP in Sep 2016. I-485 is still pending. Can I switch jobs once I complete 180 days from filing I-485? Are there any issues that I should be careful about?

Thanks for all your help on this.

Does anyone answer my questions? I need help...
I'm so upset in my case! It's been almost 9 months in NsC about I485 which I filed it on Mar28th, 2016.
My lawyer helped me to do a inquiry, and USCIS replied the email like "U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) records show your case is in line to be reviewed by an officer. We ask that you allow additional time for this process to take place since we process these cases in the order received. If after 60 days you have not received anything in the mail, please contact the National Customer Service Center (NCSC) at the number provided below."

It seems like still pending ther! How can I do now?
My PD was Jan19.2015
Biometric was done on Apr28th.2015.
If anyone knows anything, could you please answer me?

Hi All,

Visa category: L1-A
Jan 2016: I-140 and I-485 filed concurrently through my employer (regular processing)
Feb 2016: Biometrics done
April 2016: Received EAD card
Case service center: Nebraska (changed to Texas in Nov 2016 by USCIS)

I'm expecting my I-140 to be approved any time now. Since I-485 was filed concurrently, how long does it take to get I-485 approved once I140 gets approved?

Thanks a lot.
