I have read the posts on this forum so many times to keep my hopes alive! So I know how important it is to pass it on.
I was a student on F-1 visa
Married last year
Filed on December 10th through the Chicago Lock box
Biometric in January
Then nothing. It was a long wait for 250 days
My EAD came 12 days ago and I had my interview yesterday!
Here are the things that I would have wanted someone to tell me!
The processing time on the USCIS website said processing 9o days!! WRONG!!

Unless you like signing in everyday, the USCIS app works very well!
I checked and refreshed every morning and evening!

It takes a looong time to process! Do not make any plans before you actually have your EAD/Green card approved or you will be disappointed!

I told the officer I worked illegally after I filed! It didn’t seem to be a problem!

Invest in yourself and your family during the waiting time! I learned how to cook and I’ve read books that makes me the best employee when I started working!

It’s gonna be a painful wait! But it is worth it! USA is the best country in the world!
I already have a job offer and a baby on the way!

I hope this helps someone!
If you have any question please let me know!

I received the messages below in my email and it was updated in my online account as well on different days as follows:
8/7/2019: “Your case was transferred to another USCIS office and we sent you a notice explaining why we transferred your case”
Then the next day I received another message
8/8/2019: “Your case was transferred to another USCIS office and that office now has jurisdiction over your case”
Please does anyone has an idea what this is? How soon was an interview scheduled for you? Thanks in advance.

About to start my grandma’s paperwork which is probably gonna be pretty heavy. So my grandma has 9 kids and about 26 grandkids let’s minus that by 7 so 19 grandkids to file for which is 28 people in total. She’s a US citizen so my question is since we’re filling all at once will the married grandkids benefit from it or are we gonna have to do something else

Thank you

My husband and I applied last year. We submitted I 130, I 485, and I 765 for my husband and step children. We have not been scheduled for an interview, we have not received the work permits. We received a couple of RFE's (minor stuff, pictures and translated copies of birth certificates) all our responses to our RFE's are already beyond the 60 day mark. I have called and emailed USCIS so many times that they blocked my account and I had to create a new one. As of today, no interview scheduled, no sign of the work permits.

I'm in the US since December under a F1 visa; working on my Maters. My priority date became available in July 2019, and as soon as I had all the docs and medical records ready I applied for my AOS.

I haven't heard anything from the USCIS, and they haven't even cashed my fees. How long usually take for the USCIS start some sort of communication after the I-485 is received in the Lockbox in Chicago?

F1 Category - Unmarried Daughter of an US Citizen
Priority Date: October 10, 2012
Visa availability: July 2019
Applied for I-485 (Adjustment of Status): June 26, 2019
Arrived at the Lockbox in Chicago: June 28, 2019
