Hello Folks -

Hope everyone is doing great. I have applied for GC through marriage back in august 2019. I have the biometrics done in september 2019 and as of now the status says "Fingerprint review is complete".

I have a job offer now and trying to see what exactly i need to submit to expedite the EAD?
For financial hardships what exact documents are needed and is there a sample letter for it.

Appreciate any responses.

In July 2019, USCIS transferred my I-130 file to NBC.After that no updates from USCIS, I am so confused and don't know what to do next. I am still waiting for EAD. Any help is appreciated.

Hi ,

In the i485 interview invitation letter , there is a long list of documents that are being asked to be bought to interview . Is it standard list they send to all ?

It starts saying “ you must bring following documents with you “

Pls advise

Hi, I am planning to petition my mom and little sister next year.
Can someone let me know, is it really possible for my mom to bring my then would be 11 year old sister?

We don't have anyone to entrust my sister that's why :(

Happy to receive Permanent Resident Card at hand. It took around 7 years from I-130 submission date. The timeline is:
Priority date: Dec 2012
I-485 received by USCIS: Sep 2018
Priority date became current (Visa Bulletin): May 2019
Interview letter received:3rd week of Aug 2019
Interview location: Houston
Interview held: 24 Sep, 2019
Green Card in hand through mail: 28 Sep 2019
Two important things I would like to add about interview:
(1) Took my father who is my petitioner. It really helped to get the approval at the end of the interview.
(2) I took a letter from my employer stating my position, direct employee, full time employment and my annual salary. This letter was also a great help to get my GC approval.

Good luck to all of you to this journey! Hope to interact with you again in the citizenship forum after ~5 years.

My husband is a usc and I have a conditional gc. He had petitioned my 2 minor children and I just got notification for approval on 1 of them. They were sent the same day and even have almost similar receipt numbers except for the last digit.
Should I be worried?

My brother (US citizen) had submitted the I-130 for me in January 2015 for the F4 category. It’s November 2019 now, but still it says “your case was received” when we check for updates in the USCIS site. The center that’s handling this case is California.

Can someone tell me usually how long does it take for an I-130 for F4 handled by California Service Center to get approved?
