Hi @Mujahed
Sorry, my mistake. I counted your case as if you were a US citizen. Missed the ‘Green card’ statement.

You are right.

I’m sorry I can not estimate it myself … Thanks

I cannot estimate for each individual case either.

Hey! My husband is a green card holder and filed petition in March 2018. The receipt date given to us is 13th March 2018. The service center is California. Do you have any idea when i can possibly get an approval?
Edit: i am residing in Pakistan

Hi @Amna

I cannot estimate for each individual case. Sorry.

But any idea? Anything that can give me hope?

Can you please explain to me what the “best case receipt date” means? Is it important?
Also is everything that you post authentic? Just curious.

Hi @Amna
The “best case receipt date” means the case which our service found to have been approved most recently. The cases are checked on various forums where users report their approvals.

It is up-to you to believe it or not.
