Although decision email said ADIT processing etc I did not receive any FP notice.

Good luck to you all. I will be back tomorrow to call the reps on 3012..
Many congratulations to you and your family. Thanks for sharing the good news with all of us. Have a great green life ahead. Friends it looks like all preadjudicated cases before 15th July 2007 will see approvals this month itself.

Default Still Waiting

Mine is May 2007 date and no update on my case yet even after raising a service request.
Went ahead and contacted my local senator yesterday so i do not believe everyone with priority date before July 2007 will get that this month.

Thanks!

You may submit one check or money order for both the application and biometric fees

Make the check or money order payable to U.S. Department of Homeland Security
You do not make a check to USCIS!

Use the following guidelines when you prepare your check or other financial institution located in the United States and must be payable in U.S. currency; and

1. The check or the money order must be drawn on a bank or other financial institution located in the United States and must be payable in U.S. currency; and

2. Make the check or money order payable to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, unless:

A. If you live in Guam, make it payable to Treasurer of Guam.

B. If you live in the U.S. Virgin Islands, make it payable to Commissioner of Finance of the Virgin Islands.

NOTE: Effective July 30, 2007, if you file your Form I-485, no additional fee is required to also file an application for employment authorization on Form-I-765, Application for Employment Document, and/or advance parole on Form I-131, Application for Travel Document. You may file these forms together. If you choose to file Form I-765 and/or Form I-131 separately after the effective date, you must also submit a copy of your form I-797C, Notice of Action, receipt as evidence of the filing of Form - I-485.

NOTE: Please spell out U.S. Department of Homeland Security; do not use the initials like "USDHS" or "DHS".
