My time line
Hey everyone I would like to thank everyone who shared his experience with the USCIS because it was so useful to me when first i tried to start my journey with the USCIS by December 2019 .At a Center call MSC

I sent the package (I485 , I765, I30 and I31) by December 7
Package Received by 12-12
Got the receipts notice by 12-21
Bio scheduled by January 7 2020
RFE by Feb 10 (The sponsor’s income wasn’t matching the uscis)
Case updated to show RFE was received by March 3
Case Was Updated To Show Fingerprints Were Taken for I31 by March 12
No updates on my case until today April 19
Haven’t received EAD yet
I’m wondering if the USCIS still working on my case during this pandemic
Thank you so much and please stay safe...

Interview scheduled for 10th March 2020.

Finished interview.The interviewer did not ask me a lot of questions apart from my work history and role. he did ask my S.O. a lot of questions about how we met, trips we took etc, just the usual. After we got done with the interview, he asked if we had more bona-fides. We submitted additional affidavit of support, Joint house tile, new tax returns, new photos since filing. After the interview was done, the officer told me we were approved and i should get my conditional GC in a couple of days.

11th March status of I-485 changed to card is in production.

I never got the EAD or the travel waiver, the status still says finger prints were taken.

I am wondering how long it takes for the office to schedule my interview for the Atlanta area, anybody would like to share their timeline?

Question on Sponsor
Hi All,

Need some advice (I am not sure why i am not able to post to the forums so posting here)

I am on H1B visa and married to USC, she was working until last year, but we moved to a different city for my new job and she is not working now. I make decent money (100K+) but will it be a problem if he is not working?

She has filled the affidavit of support but with no current income but we have included our 2019 joint tax returns. Thanks in advance!!

PD 02/19

Defensive I-130
I went to an immigration attorney today and I was told that since my mom entered illigally the best thing they could do was file a "defensive I-130" since she won't be able to come back into the county. I don't know what a "defensive I-130" is nor have I been able to find any information on it. Can someone please explain this to me.
