Bakersfield, CA asked in Immigration Law for California

Q: I am currently awaiting my green card. Mother was approved, my case is still pending. Both filed at the same time.

My priority date is August 17, 2007. EB3. Employment based. Dependent. Canadian citizen. My mother received her green card two months ago(primary applicant). I called USCIS and did not get a direct answer. I was only told to call back in August if I haven't received anything from them and not to call again as that can slow my case. When do you think I will receive my green card?

A: Hopefully, you already received you green card by now. If not, don't worry. USCIS works in mysterious ways. There is no way to predict why some dependents are approved before primary applicants and vice versa. Keep checking in periodically. Unless USCIS has a reason to delay your application (criminal conviction, grounds for inadmissibility), you should receive your green card very soon. Good luck!
