By the way, I saw another case whose number is close to mine got an RFE (RD 5/14/03) asking for additional evidence... Don't know what category it is ... but wish they will pick up my file soon ... keep finger crossed !
sorry to hear about that you received RFE. its frustrating that after 18months of wait they ask for further evidences, crazy people, I think they donot respect we who apply through EA1 priority criteria.
did you apply for EAD? and got that approved?
I am also waiting to see result of my EB1-OR since may? its scary
Yes you are right. They don't care whether it is EB1 or EB2.
I got my EAD & AP approved last Dec (Dec 06 2002).
I-484 ( RD - Sep 27 2002
ND - Oct 06 2002)
It was really frusturating to wait for such a long time (18 months) and one way it is good that at least my file is opened.
I am expecting that they might ask me for the pay stub and they might wish to know if I am still employed and get the salary specified when I applied for my I-140. Other RFEs I see is about the tax filings for the past three years. Let me wait till I see the RFE.
I have good news to report. Our EB-1 OR case, filed on May 29, 2002 has been approved according to online status.
Receipt Number: EAC02201*****
Application Type: I140, IMMIGRANT PETITION FOR ALIEN WORKER
This case has been approved. On September 10, 2003, 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. To update your address, please speak to an Immigration Information Officer during business hours.
The RFEs clearly indicate that they don't read any of the document we send them and they simply pick one of the
listed usual RFEs they normally ask and send it out. The reason why I am feeling so will be clear once you read the RFEs
