Default mail delivered to old address

Turns out the mail was delivered to my old address inspite of me updating my address at USCIS using the address change form and getting APs and EADs at my new address.

I found this out using the tracking number they gave me. its been a week since they delivered it and its quite possible that its lost by now. anyone has experience filing for I-90 (application to replace lost/stolen permanent resident card)?

Question Confused

Took Infopass today for my case - the officer looked at my receipt notice and looked up in the system - and said your case is approved today...
Very confused - want to believe him but there are no updates on the case status online - neither did I get an email or text -

He said go home - you will receive your cards in the mail and confirmed my address in their records was correct.
Also asked me if I was carrying my passport - I said no. He said that's ok... not sure why he asked for the PP..

Now again have to wait for bated breath for snail mail or maybe their emails are delayed..
Hope he is right...

Anybody experienced this - got cards/approval and online status did not show any updates/no emails/text.. ???

Yea its very possible, I have knows few people who never got emails but got the notices and cards in mail, USCIS online system is supposedly very buggy.

What is your PD date (including day)

Default Strange Case

I just joined the forum..heard from a buddy of mine. Great cause and I just contributed a small amount

My case is very strange. My PD is 10th July, 2006, however last year in September, USCIS mistakenly updated my PD to 10th Feb, 2006 and approved GC for me and my wife. We also got the cards in the mail. I did approach my lawyer and she advised us to return the cards. While we were in the process to return the cards, I received RFE stating that our GC was approved in an error. Long story short, the cards were returned and now my case is under following status "pre adjudicated under review". When the dates went current in June, I did open the SR and got the response that my case will be requested and reviewed for processing. I also had Infopass appointment and the officer asked me to wait and someone will pick my file.

Any suggestions on my case? Would greatly appreciate the response.

Thanks

Default Received "Decision" email on June 8

for myself and my wife. But no CPO email as yet. I guess I should just wait for the cards in the mail, given the flakiness of the USCIS notification system.

Default Approval Notice Received

I just received approval notices for our I-485s (myself and my spouse) via usps. Approval date June 6 2011. The online status however is not up to date (Initial Review). I guess there is a lot of latency in the online system.


PD July 19 2006
I-485 filed at VSC (receipt number EAC---*) on July 10 2007
Receipt date July 11 2007
Transferred to TSC September 2007 (notice date, October 11 2007)
LUD Jun 02 2009 (Change of Address)

I guess, we should not estimate the processing of the case based only on the online status.

Hi all,
My PD is Aug 06/EB2 and I received my card and welcome notice in mail today. Online status shows initial review, no emails or text messages. So I too believe that one should not just check status or email but check mail box too. My case was transfered from Texas to Nebraska. I pray that all waiting for too be greened should see the cards soon in the mail boxes. Good luck.

Thanks,

Default Need some help with My I-485 case

I am one of those guys who was able to sneak in their I-485 application with concurrent filing in when the flood gates opened in 2007. My priority date is april 2007, so i am guessing that my file would likely become current with the august bulletin.

I am getting married end of august and will be back in the states towards end of sep, my fiancee is an indian citizen and i haven't included her name into the I-485 application (i met her after the application was filed ). I have an EAD card, but i am holding onto my H1 so that i could get her an H4.

Looks like we might have to get married before our end of aug wedding date, she is visiting me end of june and i planned to get a civil ceremony done here in california, but i heard that the USCIS could claim that as a mis-representation at the port of entry (she will be on a visitor's visa).

So i plan to fly to canada with her, get married there, file for an H4 and get her back into the states with an H4.

So here are my questions -:
A) Does the canada plan seem realistic, any issues i should be aware of, anything that could pose a problem with her GC application as a dependent if i do this ?

B) She will be in the states till the 2nd week of july. If we do get the H4 from canada by then and the August bulletin is released by the 2nd week of july, can she apply right away (or if i have to make amendments to my I-485 application, can i do that right away), or do we have to wait till the 1st of august to do this. If we do, she might as well visit in august (its kinna close to the wedding date, so its tricky, but do-able if necessary).

C) Does she have to be present in the country when her application is sent to the USCIS (or when i make amendments to my application to include her as a dependent) ?
If its just the matter of medical records, we could get that done when she is visiting in late june/early july.

Any help with these questions is greatly appreciated, thanks in advance.
