Unfortunately, I have never seen an immigrant visa entrant receive the green card within 30 days. Up to six months is more typical. That's why the endorsed visa stamp in his passport serves as his temporary green card for one year. If your husband hasn't received a notice from the USCIS after 90 days have passed from his entry, you might want to enlist the help of your local U.S. Representative or Senator. Their offices have immigration liaisons.
I agree. Or, you can hire an attorney to stay on top of the case.

I agree with Attorney Wiedemann. Patience. The government does not work within the time frames it sets.

You can give it a bot more time or contact counsel if you feel it is taking too long and want someone to consistently follow up with it.

His stamp is as good as a green card, and he can extend it at an infopass appointment at the local office.
