I am from India and used cross-chargeability as my wife was born in Nigeria. I did not get what is ILS?

Thanks everyone. Infact i did not take any extra steps. My initial application for I485 and I140 was rejected as USCIS did not apply cross chargeability. Then my attorney said she had put remarks on every page of the application and concurrently filed again which was accpeted on 05/2008 and we got EAD and AP in 2-3 months. I was pleasently surprise to see the welcome notice email yesterday and today the Card Production Ordered email. What a relief !!

To all, Just hang-in there.
ps. One thing i noticed(may not be indicative of anything) my wife's application approval email came first and then mine, even though i was the primary applicant.

Congratulations! Did you see any LUD's on your applications (say, within the last two months)?
Thanks.
