We received my wife's plastic GC just 5 weeks after she had her passport stamped. That was
very fast!

I, however, had my passport stamped in July 2000 and 6 months later... no plastic GC.

We've seen the INS process cases out of sequence. Apparently they still can't get it right
even with the production of the actual card. Argh!

Where did you file your processing ? In California ?.. I heard the machine (CSC) that
makes the plastic card was broken for a month or so during Nov. 2000..

I heard the ave. period length is about 3 months now after you get your stamp.. Anyone out
there to confirm this ?

Thanks,

Where did you file your processing ?

Dallas, Texas.

Could be, but in my case I just found out that my I-89 form was lost by the INS (or some
other screw up that caused the card not to be ordered). I only found out after 6 months.
What irritates me even more is I accompanied my wife last December (5 months after I went
there myself) and inquired about my plastic GC. The INS officer checked her computer and
just told me that it had not been produced yet. Now I know why it was not produced... it
was not even ordered. Sigh.

I went to the Dallas INS office today and the INS officer did say that lately it has been
taking 2-3 months.

I got mine in the middle November 2000. Approved by CSC, but it was mailed from Kentucky.

Took about six months for me, but I do hear that it's faster now.

I saw my friend's plastic GC the other day and saw his WAC # written on the card.. and
forgot to ask if the # is same as his I-485's or if it was a new # for his plastic card
process...

If the wac# in the card is a new one for the card, I guess we could check it by calling
the automatic answering INS machine.. If not, anyone out there know how to check if your
card is under processing ?

I heard some people's plastic card application was lost that they had to reapply several
times to get the card.. don't want this to happend to me..

Thanks..
