Post-decision activity means that a decision has been made. Sometimes it means production of the "green card". You did not specify what type of petition was filed which makes harder to guess.

It may mean the approval will be sent to National Visa Center. I don't know how you filled out the petition. I don't know where your husband is. That's why you need a lawyer to guide you through the process and fill out all the forms correctly.



is it normal to be conflict between USCIS and CSC ??
