    Thank you all.

    Dear pchem,

    Congratulations on your spouse's approval!

    Do you know why it was delayed?

    Have you ever called VSC to find out and what did they say?

    Dear Flowermimi,
    I dont know why it was delayed. we called vsc one month back. The officer told just wait one month. He was nice and told it should be approved before. He did not elaborate anything more.

    Probably you might be able to guide me.

    Mine I-485 got approved on 6/27 but not for spouse.

    I called VSC, they told that RFE has been ordered for her on 6/24. I have not received yet.

    When I am trying to find out status by entering notice number into their 800 number, it says that due to temporary problem in our system we could not access this case number.

    What you will suggest me to do?

    Interfile Pending I-485

    Congratulations, pchem.

    I noticed you interfiled your I-485 and got it approved. I am in the same boat now. I want to interfile my pending I-485(linked to NIW I-140) to a recently approved I-140-OR.

    Could you tell me what documents you sent to USCIS to interfile your I-485?

    And where did you send the documents to? Was it the same place you submitted your I-485?

    Did you receive confirmation for your interfiling request?

    Sorry about the questions, but I really hope to know the answer.

    Thanks a lot.

    Hi Shokaido,

    Yes I can tell you the documents I furnished.

    1- One letter requesting to interfile your case.
    2. Pearson memo., The link is as follows


    3. I-140 approval notice.

    4- I-485 notice

    Then send to the center where you filled your I-485. On the envelop mention Interfiling/Substitution I-140 t0 I-485

    I did not receive any confirmation. I was wondering what was going on. One day I saw my case was approved.

    Good luck.

    How you called VSC. When I try the 1-800 number, I do not get any useful info. The agent tells the samething as in online message. Can you tell me the number you called .

    Congrats and thanks pchem for sharing your experience. But the link to the Pearson memo does not seem to work. Could you please update that URL? Thank you very much.
