people who got their approvals, please share your experiences with FP receipts
i think you both should apply for EAD , if you want to stay on H1 , that's fine but you can have your EAD as backup for you.gc_baba said:Hello All,
I just spoke to my attorney and they he is talking about EAD and advance parole.
Here is my status as of right now.
My H1-B is valid until April 2006. My wife is on H4 and both of us have visa stamping on our passports until April 2006.
Just got the LC approved and about to apply for 140 and 485 concurrently.
My attorney is suggesting that I need to apply for EAD for my wife only and he wants me to stay on H1, so that I can travel overseas with my valid H1 and my wife may work on EAD and she can as well travel on H4.
What should I do? Should I apply for EAD or wait for the whole GC process is completed?
Any suggestions please!
outletvolt1 said:I am in same boat too. Seriously, how can one determine if one's application
is indeed being processed in the Pilot Program ?
Can I say that my application is being processed in the Pilot program if
1) Any application filed after April 2004 as EB2/Concurrent/Same Day/Same Time/Same Envelope ?
2) Application which is filed as described in (1), but also has I-140 LUD changed atleast once after initial RD/ND date ?
3) Application which is filed as described in (1), but does NOT have I-140
LUD changed even once after initial RD/ND date. But may have received
EAD and AP and FP done ?
4) Application for which 1) and 3) are true but there was only ONE FP notice ? I have seen people approved via Pilot have received TWO FP notices.
Does anyone know for certain ?
fivemiletom said:Hi Outletvolt1 and others,
I think "Pilot Program" is a overused and very vage term, there are only two important credible guidelines I could find, in regards to 140 - 485 processing:
One memo we all know about (concurrent filing of I140 and I485 memo, 2002).
The only other concrete guideline I found about expediting concurrent filings is the "Ohata memo" 2004.
All service centers have been instructed to implement this memo for indefinite time. According to the info I found on this, your application WILL be processed according to this memo if it meets the requirements, which are explained here http://www.hooyou.com/news/news051304conc.htm.
Please add any related memos that you know of, but this general talk about a temporary pilot program sounds like nonsense to me.
erdfcv said:good piece of information...
but then how to explain the people in this forum see their success in getting their PR within two month of timeframe from initial filing of 140 and 485?
erdfcv said:thanks fivemile!
so this indeed confirmed that everyone who filed after May, as EB2 concurrent, would have fair chances to be in pilot program.
then how come i have not received my fp notice yet? i filed at end of July and only have EAD and AP so far..
newkidhere said:My 140/485 applied at NSC on 9th september 04. I got the notice on 19th september 04. Now I received FP notice on 30th September 04 and scheduled on 15th October 04. Does anyone think I should be under pilot program as I got my FP so fast?
Appreciate your response
WaitingInHell said:Hi newkidhere,
Pilot Program was introduced in June' 04 (or end of May). Cases that were submitted on or after Jun'04 were chosen for Pilot Program. As per my attorney, there is no indication or a hard and fast rule if a case was chosen for Pilot Program. But the only way one can say if a case was chosen for PP is if that case was approved within 90 days from the day the I-140/485 was received. As far as I know there were a very few cases (one of them is my colleague's) that were approved within that time.
Pilot Program was introduced to clear the backlog, guess what?!?, the PP itself is backlogged now. No matter how many bills or Pilot Programs they introduce, the situation won’t get any better unless the authorities show or have the real intention of naturalizing hard working legal immigrants. I don't think USCIS will approve any more GCs until elections are over. Not trying to discourage you, this is the reality and I am in same boat but completed 2 months since I gave my FP (Aug 26th, 04). Hope the info helps you.
Best of luck!
GreenCardsRUS said:Here's what I found out from our attorney as far as how the Pilot program works at CSC.
CSC has a storage room that is the size of a casino floor. It is filled with shopping carts full of applications. Contractors have been hired to pick applications that qualify for the Pilot program from those shopping carts. So it is anybody's guess on what their chances are for getting picked up in the Pilot program, which by the way, is just another stunt from CSC to put the Senators off their backs for a while.
erdfcv said:wow, this is new. if this information is creditable, then i will be totally wordless...matter of fact, i was trying to find connection with CSC - i was just curious how the pilot works...and now i read this.
