    Answered . In employment-based green card applications such as these, you have to look at the processing time reports of the USCIS service center where it states in the receipt that the case is pending.
    Go to www. USCIS.gov

    Whatever the time you see reported there, it would be safe to add another 2 -3 months to it as your maximum, REALISTIC time frame. Those reports are always too rosy anyway!
    Your green cars should arrive in the mail, without necessitating an interview at the local field office.
