First, congratulations LRK, on becoming a free person!!

Second, got a question for you. Did you mean to say that the RD sate was Nov 2004?? The current processing date is Aug 02, 2004. Just checking to see if out of order processing in being done.

One of my friends applied (concurrent filing) end of Aug, 2004 and his GC (140&485) was approved on last Friday. His lawyer got a letter and all.

Thanks for your info and congratulations once again,

Processing Dates:

Hello Folks,

I noticed that the current processing dates for EB2 category is September 1st, 2004. I know that this is the date on the latest application they are processing. But, for applications filed before this date, is there an approximate time frame on when we should hear from INS?? My application's date is 5th of August. My questions in this regard are:

- Is there a trigger date when I should start worrying??
- Is there a process of checking what is happenning to my application??

Any info in this regard is appreciated.

Thanks,
lsk_gc

Priority Date: Aug 2001
I-140 filed : Aug 2004 (5th)

Not all the cases filed in Aug 04 have been adjudicated yet.

Hi lsk_gc,

I have been tracking some cases filed in Aug 04 and as of now less than 50% of them have been processed. So just be a bit more patient.

You can call BCIS if they are Processing cases with Receipt Date of 30 days or more after your filing date.

Cheers
Piyush

Hi Piyush,

Thanks for both pieces of the info. Will take the patience pill for a couple more weeks. If you can periodically post your tracking info to the forum, it would be greatly appreciated by me and I am sure by others too.

Thanks once again,

Since my 140 approvel and FP, when I inquire 485 status online, I always get the below message at least 2-3 days a week.

"Status for this Receipt Number cannot be found at this time in this automated system. Please check your case receipt number to see if it is correct. If you have questions or concerns about your case status, please contact the service center where you submitted your application. "

Anybody in the same boat? Can you shred some light?

Filed EB2 concurrent July 2004.
140 approved Feb 05
FP done Mar 05

Questions
Upon receiviong my FP, how long does it take FBI to check my security or whatever?

Once security is cleared, how soon do I expect INS make a decision on my case?

I have just received an email from USCIS
stating that my I-140 was approved on March 25, 2004! Thanks for all the insights you guys have been offering on this. Crossing my fingers for everyone else and hoping that the I-485 approval is on its way.

The email reads as:
Application Type: I140 , IMMIGRANT PETITION FOR ALIEN WORKER

Current Status:

This case has been approved. On March 25, 2005, an approval notice was
mailed. If 14 days have passed and you have not received this notice,
you may wish to verify or update your address.

Cheers,
Alchemist

CSC rejecting 140/485 concurrent filing with EB3 sub ?

My lawyers told me that last week, they received rejection from CSC for concurrently filed I-140 and I-485 filed with EB3 substitute labor certificate on grounds of unavailability of visa numbers. The PD on the substitute labor certificate is Aug 2001, which can only mean that they are not using substitute labor cert PD for I-140 and I-485.

Has anybody else filing concurrently in February or March 2005 with substitute EB3 labor cert seen this ? My lawyers are using a substitute EB3 labor for me and because of this, are recommending to only file I-140 at this time.

This is scary since although my sub EB3 labor cert has PD nov 2001, I will be unable to file for I-485 till the EB3 retrogression moves past march 2005 ! :-(

CSC update on immigration.com

Requirement of separate filing of the I-140 in the EB-3 category due to the regression of visa numbers

As per the law and regulation, a visa number must be directly available in order to file the I-465. The regression of visa numbers would definitely require separate filings of the I-140 for the EB-3 categories.

Thanks addagarla, but I 'm still not clear.

The sub EB3 labor cert being used for me has PD nov 2001 and the current retrogression date for EB3 is April 2002. So if the same priority date is carried forward, I should be eligible to file for 140 and 485.

Does that mean that the PD for a sub labor cert is not carried forward and the RP of 140 becomes the PD of 140 and 485 ? Please clarify. Thanks !
