Congratulations on the GC approval. The H1B transfer will subsequently get denied once they realize your AOS has been approved. You can proactively send in a withdrawal notice for the H1B transfer AFTER you've received the plastic GC itself, or you can decide to do nothing and wait for USCIS to deny the application on their own.
Thank you !... shout out to you for the awesome job you do.. volunteering to answer so many questions for people..

Hello!

Mom, advise me how to be, I have one question:
1) I have an administrative fine issued by a police officer for using a cell phone while driving. I paid the fine. Should I report this information to the i485 (for example, in the part of the offense) or is it not important? How should I complete the i485 and do I need to attach any documents? If this needs to be done, what documents do I need to attach?

Thank you for your time! I really appreciate it and I am grateful to you!

You were cited and fined, you need to answer yes to the question asking if you’ve ever been cited. Then go to Part 14 on the form to explain what the citation is about and how you’ve already paid the fine.
 
I figured I'd give an update here rather than just lurking.
We filed AOS in October, Biometrics in December and are unfortunately still waiting for an interview to be scheduled.

It might be helpful to be told that there really is nothing you can do to speed up the process, at least with the Brooklyn field office.

We have spoken to Tier 2 on a few occasions and have even engaged with (fairly helpful) congressional support who had a video call with the field office to discuss our case. Sadly it was not successful, so we must continue to practice patience.

Almost unbelievably, my wife was once again selected for DV2022, but we REALLY hope that is a backup that we do not need.

Since we were selected in DV2021, my daughter has been conceived, born, and had her US passport issued.

Do you know if Brooklyn batches DV cases?

Congratulations on your wife's DV2022 selection! I hope you'll be scheduled for an interview soon! :)

Looks like you FO batches up DV based AOS cases and wait towards the end of the FY before proceeding. You’ve actually demonstrated an unusual understanding and patience in this forum, greatly appreciate that! Keeping my fingers crossed for you guys.

Congratulations on your wife’s DV22 selection, hoping you guys wouldn’t need it. Also congratulations on the new addition to the family.

Please forgive me if the answer to this question can be found somewhere else. My interview is this Friday and as I have mentioned before I hired an attorney who I'm sure filed form G-28 with my AOS package. Because of this, will the IO expect to see my attorney at the interview or is it up to me whether I want my attorney there or not? Thank you.

It is up to you if you want the IO in attendance or not. The IOs are aware lawyers on record could get fired for one reason or the other by the applicant long before the application process gets concluded.

All the best with the interview. And keep us posted.

For the $330 fee receipt, has anyone sent an overnight tracked SASE?
It’s the one I included and even though KCC says they sent my receipt last week, the envelope is not here yet and the tracking number says it’s not in the USPS system yet, so I’m quite confused and I’m wondering if anyone has sent this type of envelope and what was their experience with it.

Where do I get the receipt number for filing on my i-485 form? After filling our D260 (Principal, spouse & child), sending it to through the lockbox, we have never received any response from November 2020. KCC & USCIS are both silent despite our numerous attempts to contact them via email & phone. Our case is current and 7 days ago, we reached out to our congress woman office. They have send our inquiry to their Congressional Liaison at the Department of State and are now awaiting their response. What do we do now given that time is moving pretty first?

Are you saying that you never received a NOA with your case number for the AOS package you filed in November?
