Default Does "Card Production Ordered" mean I got GC

Can someone please confirm if "Card Production Ordered" email from USCIS mean my 485 is approved and I have gotten GC ?
I have only got this "Card Production Ordered" email and not an email specifically saying "485 approved". How long does it take after "Card Production Ordered" email to get actual card.

Also if May bulletin is Unavailable it still means that GC;s issued if your date is current in April are valid ? My email came yesterday same day as the new May bulletin ?

When they approve, they have to check boxes for emails/actions. Sometimes they forget some of them. Your email confirms that your GC journey is over. Congrats.

If I remember right from your older post you are the one who was waiting for some 15-18 years right ? You deserve it. Congrats my friend and enjoy your life ahead.

Yes I have been in US since 1991. Here is my story.

1991 1996 - Did Bachelors in US.

1996 -1998 - Masters

1999 - 2009 - On H1. Have been with same firm for over 10 yrs though I have had several promotions. Always kept H1 though spouse started working on EAD in Jan 2009.

Its been some wait. There have been time I felt so frustrated with this process I literally cried or felt like punching someone.

I wont really believe till I have card in my hand. Difficult to trust USCIS.

I have the same situation.

Did you eventually receive the GC and how long did it take after you received "Card Production Ordered" status?
