foret,
We have similar cases. My LC was filed in Oct 2001, got the approval in Oct 2005, filed immediately for I-140 and got approved in Dec 2005. Since then, I'm just waiting...and waiting for my turn to come (I'm an EB3 Other-Countries). Spoke to my lawyer to figure out my options and she told me that if I were to leave my current employer for a new company, they could file me using a PERM/EB2 combo which should (hum..) go much faster (3 to 6 months for PERM + I-140+ I-485 with current dates).
At this stage, I feel like I'm back to square one, i.e waiting behind a whole bunch of sect. 245 cases and praying that a miracle happens. With all the uncertainty sourrounding the GC process, I'm just not sure that starting a new EB2 case would make me feel better. Who knows ? Maybe PERM would get backloged, maybe EB2 cases would have a cut-off date by the time I reach that stage.
Therefore, I've decided (at least for now) to just sit tight and wait for better days :rolleyes:

I-485 Approved!

Today I received an email from USCIS which says my 1-485 application was approved on 04/14/06.

Hopefully this is encouraging news for people in the 485 queue with older priority dates, especially from countries effected by retrogression.

Please find other details in my signature below.

Cheers!

Rajel,

I think I'm also in the similar situation. My PD is December 2001, passed labor in December 2005, waiting for my I-140 to clear, and, hopefully, apply soon for I-485 (EB-3 - other countries). I can't even vaguely predict when will our numbers become current, and what about people from 2002, 2003, 2004 and so on...

What I'm actually frustrated the most about is that, within the new immigration bill to legalize illegals, there is little to none mention of us, people legally trying to stay in this country, going trough hell because some of this country's instritutions are bureacratically challenged. After all the talks in the media, I'm still not sure if the provisions to raise visa quotas for legal immigrant were part (i think they were, but not sure) of that new bill (that didn't even go through). I'm actually surprised that we didn't lobby more for separation of the two bills. This way, we continue to suffer (it seems) because the congress couldn't agree whether to legalize 12 million illegals

spidey and kodak57, you are right i don't have anything to loose. i will get in touch with a good lawyer and try my luck....

My understanding is that experience should be gained prior to labor application and NOT prior to starting with company.

You should be able to do this. Why dont you pay a couple of hundred dollars as consulting fees to someone like Mr. Rajiv Khanna and solicit his professional advice. You can setup a phone consult by calling a number on his home page.

you are right that it's quite possible that perm could be backloged and eb2 could get cut a off date by the time you reach that stage. but hey it's also quite possible that it might not. it's all a game, and as many advised in this forum, what do we have to loose by trying. even if i loose, i would feel much better knowing that i at least tried. i can't stop asking myself the following: what if i had done this 7 months ago when i got the 140 for my eb3 approved back in oct 2005 instead of waiting all this time for a miracle?

My attorney says that it will take another 18 months before retrogress date for EB3 India move to Jan' 2002. This news is very disturbing. I don't know if i have to wait for another 18 months to apply I-485. I hope and pray that he is wrong.

Anyone has any news related to retrogress. Read today's Murthy.com's news update. DOL also predicts slow or no movement at all for EB3 in the future. :mad:

US is in process of revamping the immigration system & procedures. That is the reason why they have :

1) Implemented PERM
2) Implemented bi-specialization
3) Eliminated subs labor

The overall objective is to bring down the time taken for processing employement based GCs to 1 year. The 'Immigration Reform Bill' was supposed to take care of the visa number retrogression issue amongst other things. It got stalled because of the issue of illegal immigrants. BUT there is a very high change , IMO , that the provisions related to visa number retrogression may pull through. Otherwise it will be immposible to process GC in 1 year. Both PERM and BPC are approving cases at quite a brisk rate. Just think , people who have applied under PERM in NOV-2005 have got their labor approved. They will have to wait for 4 years as per the current cut-off dates for EB3. I am sure there will be some reform in the pipeline to address the retro of visa number issue. We just need to wait and pray.

Delay in geting receipt Notice for 485???

Guys,
My lawyer has told me that my 485 ,ead and AP has been filed on 04/05/06. but It has been more than 10 days and I have not received the receipt notice and also, i have not seen the fee cheques deposited either.
For I 140, the cheque was deposited within couple of days after filing??.
Is it something going on here or the delay is due to Bi-spec??
do you guys have any clues about what is going with vsc??

thanks gurus..

Congrats! That's great news! BTW: are you having trouble accessing the online system. I cannot check the status online for the last 2 days for some reason. The moment I click on login, i get an error message. Is anyone having the same problem. I am having this problem, accessing it from work and home
