I'm seeing all these approvals all the way till August 2004. Pretty frustrating because my 140 application hasn't been touched since filling. No RFEs, and no LUDs (apart from the inquiry ones). Not sure what's going on. Was told the case got assigned to an officer on 01/13/05, but no word yet.

Anyone else in the same boat? Kabish, any updates?

Mesbah,
CSC is not touching EB-3 I-140 cases at all.I only see EB-2 approvals.There have been very few I-140 approvals in EB3 since July 2003.
It does'nt matter whether it is non,semi or fully concurrent EB3 application.

That's pretty unfortunate. Any idea why? I know the retro doesn't even affect me. My coworkers applied in April, and they all got their 140+485 approvals. They're all EB2.

Mesbah,
Retro does'nt affect me also but still I dont know why they are not touching EB3 I-140's.
The main reason for retrogression in EB 3 was to finalize all cases with PD's in 2001 but I dont see any changes at all in status of EB3 I-140 applications.

yeah, i'm not sure what the problem is. Should we just wait for another month or so? I don't know what else we can do. They haven't replied to any of our inquries.

Can employer put a hold on I140.

Hi all,
Just skeptical about few moves.
Can employer put a hold on I-140. May be they think the processing is going fast and can hold some more time.

I highly doubt the ins has time to accommodate employees that want to put their petitions on hold... I doubt they can do that and hide it from lawyers too. seems unethical.

Does any one know how many Jan/Feb filers around without approvals?

waiting for Name check (CSC)

Today my lawyer called the officer again and this time the officer mentioned that they are waiting for my Name check results to come back before proceeding with processing 140 and 485. Last week when the lawyer called the officer mentioned that they are waiting for original labor from National Visa Center. Mine is EB2 substitute case with 140 ND 03/24/2004.

I don't know why they are waiting for Name check for processing 140 case. My 485 ND is 10/14/2004 and i don't know when my name check will complete.

Did you ask your lawyer why the Name check is holding up 140? Can he ask them that? This sucks. I'm guessing that's why mine is still held up.

That's something our lawyers should ask. If i could call and talk to them, I'd ask them the same question. It's not fair to us because we can't take advantage of portability because we're waiting on 140 approval.. The whole point of that memo is to alliviate this problem since some 485s are taking a long time. Could you ask your lawyer if he could have them approve 140 only? I know there are a lot of people sitting on a 140 approval, but waiting on name check for 485. I'd rather be in that boat.
