Was your spouses case approved too? Any special steps you needed to take?

Anyone whose priority date in January 2005 got RFE? I did hear that someone got RFE couple of days ago.

485 Current - How long now?
 
EB3-I
PD July 21 2004
Texas Service Center

Yesterday's April Visa Bulletin shows my 485 has become current. I understand officially my 485 will be back on processing starting April 1st.

Does anybody know - how long it takes to get the final green card in hand? I appreciate.

In the normal scenario, it takes anywhere between 30 to 90 days.

GCTorture,
Have you gone thru Employee Verification and recent Medicals?
If you have already gone through that in last year, then you might get quick approval.
Good Luck!!! ..Do update us, your status at immigationvoice?

Thank you s416504.

Yes. Medicals are done in October 2015 so they are valid until Oct 2016. Job and address are same. So I am hoping this will be quick after April. I will, of course share the news.

Good luck to all of us.
