I feel like a real old timer here when see people whose I-485 RDs are 2007 and they are either getting or expecting a greencard.
EB-2 India Substitute Labor
PD Feb 2001
I 140/I-485 RD - June 2005 ..initially submitted to California - transferred to Nebraska
I-140 was approved timely in Sept 2005
Was stuck in NC for 28 months...so could not get GC when the date was current before and Visa was available in 2005/2006/2007.
NC cleared Nov 2007 after tons of letter writing and paper work to whole Federal Govt. - almost same time USCIS ran out of Visa ...more wait
4 EADs, 3 APs , 2 FPs later...I was happy that something will happen before April 10th ....done Infopass, 2 calls to Service Center, 1 new SR crated...
Nothing - Nada- Zilch...so far...just waiting...
My file is either consumed by termites or by rats in some old damp cold storage unit at USCIS. Last LUD I have on I-485 are of June 2007...
