This community has been my companion during this long wait. Thank you for that.
Status finally changed this morning to new card being produced. Sharing my details below:


Receipt date:11/10/18

ID: 7/15/19

FO: NYC-Federal Plaza

Status changed to new card being produced on11/2/19. From no update since June “Interview Scheduled”

I only received an email notification this morning saying “we took an action on your case”. I had to login to the portal to see the status change.

I will pray for all of you. And to those affected by retrogression like myself, I want to say try to live your day to day without this distraction. I was feeling very pessimistic but then I received the magical email. Just know that the card is in your pocket already.

Happy to answer any questions.

Are there really so many petitions waiting to be approved for EB1C 2015 filers? It is very strange they were waiting while 2016/2017 petition filers got their GC approved.

India is stuck in 01/2015 for long time.. Something fishy!

Me and my husband had the interview on August 15th 2019 in San Jose field office. We had to bring Supplement J documents with us, cause there wasn't enough time to send them to the main office. Interview itself went very smoothly. The officer said we would get the update in October/November. Both our statuses still are "Interview was scheduled...".
Has anyone with the same office and time period got any update yet?

Or if you had brought Supplement J with you , please share your experience, how much longer it took to process or anything will be helpful.

Hi all,
Wanted to check if anyone affected from retrogression and interviewed in Chicago received their green card yet?
I feel like a lot of people are being approved in the past 2 days but I have not seen anyone from Chicago.
My interview was on 8.19, and my uscis status is still interview has been scheduled.

Does anyone know if there is a way to pick up green card from the field office instead of getting it in the mailbox?

Interview Experience: My wife and I had interview scheduled at 7:15 AM. After passing through the security, we waited in the waiting room for about 30-40 minutes. Then IO called us in. IO was very professional and helpful (we had our toddler son with us) throughout the process. She asked the I-485 yes/no questions simultaneously to both of us. Questions and documents asked were:

1) Proof of continuous employment with current employer: Provided EVL and 4 months of pay stub
2) Full name of both of us.
3) Name of my immediate reporting manager.
4) My usual working hours.
5) Any other work location apart from the listed one: I replied no.
6) Updated latest travel information on the I-485 form.
7) Have we ever seen any immigration judge: both replied no.
8) Have we ever used any government assistant (e.g. food stamp): both replied no.
9) When did I finish school and my job start date.
10) 10 to 15 I-485 yes/no questions to both of us.
11) Briefly went over the medical form (which was submitted along with I-485) as well.

After the interview the IO said, she will order our card and gave a white paper which congratulated us.

Wish all of you good luck in your journey to GC.
