Thanks for posting (>3000)useful information.
waiting_waiting said:Good for your J.
Your contributions have been a tremendous source of motivation and inspiration for all us GC seekers. I remember the EB2 mailing campaign we did last year and yes, we did succeed (eventually getting I-140 approvals moving). My I-485 is still a mystery (RD Dec 2003) and all i can do is just wait and watch...
GOod Luck and Keep up the good work..
CloseToGod said:Congratulations, Jharkhandi. You are one of the pillars of this message board and we'll miss you. Hope you will keep visiting us from time to time. I wish I was as lucky as some of the other folks have been - I've been waiting for my 485 approval. My ND is Jan 04. Since you are good with analysis and predictions, any word of wisdom for me? Congratulations once again and good luck with everything else.
Jharkhandi said:Thanks a lot waiting_waiting. You people are my motivation to keep going. I also believe that email campaign did help. In fact I received a reply from Prakash Khatri's office a day after my approval. I had sent him so many emails that I have lost count. It does helps to send emails. Not too many people realize its power. Kashmir and Edison's effort in CSC inspired me to run one in VSC. I had also marked a cc to firstname.lastname@example.org in my last email to Prakash Khatri. I fact I did get answer to that email in 3 days, from president's office. I am sure email campaign did help us.
Thanks for wishes. Whenever I see tracker I feel about you. I guess it is time for you to raise a query. I called VSC three times in the fortnight before my approval and I am not sure if that helped in approving my case. I have a feeling that my case was identified for concurrent approval right in the beginning.
While talking to people in VSC - I found that sometimes files are piled without a reason but could not find the answer if they are already allocated or not! ( if it is pending with officer or if workload distribution unit never routed it).
One more point that I found was that typically cases are handled in batches, your case seems to be in the batch of EB2 of Nov-Dec 2003. Some of those cases have seen unnessecary RFEs(mostly due to lacking 2003 tax returns). Let us hope you get approval soon.
By the way how is your effort on FOIA going on?
Now a days I140 is being approved in few days, surf yourselves. Don't wait.meganm said:My labor was approved on 31 March 2005
The date it was sent to NJ DOL was April 2 , 2002
My lawyer says that the current dates for India is April 1 , 2002 to file concurrently 140 and 485 as of today
He is advising me to wait for a few more days to apply both of them together .
Do you think this is a good call or I should file for my 140
