Thanks Doc. Does the online status change once you recieve the 797? My status currently is
It is taking between 270 and 300 days for us to process this kind of case. We will mail you a decision as soon as processing is complete."
Checking to see if the number of days varies case by case...
As now its holiday season...I don't think there will be much progress either....
Lot of activities are going on to fight against EB retrogression.
The team is working with a professional lobbyist and we won't fail this time.
We will win the fight.We need everyone's support.
Some of the benefits:
Filing I-485 even if priority date is not current. Doing so would entitle us for an EAD that would give us flexibility for job opportunities.
Increasing the annual Green Card quota.
Eliminating/Reducing retrogression by recapturing unused visas and removing dependents from numerical visa limits.
Received date 02/03/06
Receipt number WAC-06-098-xxxxx
Now there's a mystery.... I filed my LC and I 140 together as we are required to do for schedule A. The check joined to the application is for I140 (it's 195 dollars). The check has been cashed a week ago. Does that means that the LC part was approved and they are now on the I 140 process ? It would be weird for them to cash the check if there was a problem with my LC. they would have at least return the whole file...
Also, i am getting the same message when i check the status of my case than you guys have when yu check on yur I140 when yu know that your LC was approved.
Any idea ?
I140 Approved - Texas Service Center - 2 weeks Processing Time
I live in California. My I-140 (Labor based) was mailed to Nebraska and the receipt date is August 22, 2006. The approval notice dated September 5, 2006 and it came from Texas Service Center. I also have a I-140 approved (in March 2005) based on NIW and based on that I had filed 485 in March 2005. I plan to substitute this labor based I-140 for my pending 485.
BTW, any idea to efficiently link the new I-140 with my pending 485?
I am a new entrant to this thread. I just got an online approval on November 20, 2006. Still waiting for my originals to come before I can file the same. Is there anyone else like me who is there and recently got certified and has/has not received the paperwork.
