I-485 approved I-140 pending accord to online status

Both my I-140 and I-485 were filed at CSC on March 7, 2005 concurrently. Currently my I-485 is approved but I-140 is still pending
:confused: :confused: :confused: :confused:

Yeterday I received the online ALERT for the approval of I-485 as follows:

Application Type: I485 , Application to Register Permanent Residence or to
Adjust Status

Current Status:

On June 7, 2005, after approving your application, we ordered you a new card.
Your card will be mailed to you as soon as it is ready

I searched on the web and found some incidence like this in Texas service center only. However there is no definite answer to this mystry.
I called up my lawyer company and the attorny's assist told me that mine is the very first case of its nature that she has heard

She said ususally either I-140/I-485 is approved concurrently or I-140 is approved first.

Has anybody else experience this before or heard of getting I-485 approved when I-140 is pending as shown on the online status? My I-140 is EB3 category. No RFE so far.

Please update me. Thanks!

Hi dulce,

One possibility is that even the I-140 is approved, just that the online case status is not yet updated.
