1-800-375-5283 - select options 1, 2, 6, 1, EAC# (key in), 1, 3, 4. This will get you to a live operator.
The processing date for VSC shows as Dec 2004. Do they consider 485 filled even after that date if priority date is current. I am confused with all this different dates.

485 dates

Hi All,
New to this.
PD: 01/98 with company A
EB3/Skilled Worker/India
I140- Applied 05/02
I140- Approved 04/04
I485- Receipt date 04/04 EAC0415XXXXXX
1st EAD approved 08/04
Started Working for company B 11/04 (AC21)
FP-03/05
2nd EAD Approved 06/05
Nothing after that and suddenly got an RFE on 01/20/06 Asked for employment letter stating hiring date, renumeration and future prospects of employment. Also pay stubs for the last 3 months. Have sent them letter and pay stubs from company B.
Got an online status change on 02/07 about them receiving the RFE. The message reads as follows:

On February 7, 2006, we received your response to our request for
evidence or information. It is taking between 365 and 540 days for us to
process this kind of case. However because preliminary processing was
complete, the remaining processing time will be less than the maximum
stated in this message. You will receive a written decision on this case.


Have never seen a message like this before in the forums. Also LUD's on 02/09 and 02/10.
Any inputs about what this message means? Is it really going to be a year more? I know it says it will be less than the maximum stated but u never know with uscis... :( Also does the written decision mean no interview? Also I submitted my medical records with the 485 in 04/04. Haven't received an rfe for medical though....
Thanks in advance for any replies.

That's the standard message after they receive the RFE response. I got the same message after sending RFE for 140 and it was approved after 20 days, a friend of mine got the same message for his 485 RFE then got his approval in about a month. I hope you will see your approval very soon.

My PD is current now as of March with Jan 2001 and I called and tried VSC 2 times saying that my PD is current and they would not listen at all and said that the RD we are processing is 15th Feb and your RD is Jun 2005, I told them that people who are filling now with current PD are getting approved in 1-3 months and the sicko's wouldn't care. Now that means we have to wait for 2-3 months and these basties are using both dates to get us off,

anyone else in the same situation and suggestion on how to get around it

My I-485 was approved

Hi, everyone,

My case has been approved, finally!

I started LC in June 2001 via funny "RIR". It was locked in New York State for more than two years. In October 2003, my RIR LC was picked up by Central Processing Group, and was denied, and I was asked to go regular pathway. I did a three-day ad, and My LC got approved in February 2004. After waiting for another year, 365 days, I got my I-140 done. Then there came the I-485 approval after visa number become current. I just feel relieved. Almost 5 years! Three steps! What a journey!

I visited this forum many times. I learned a lot! It is the greatest immigration forum ever. So thanks a lot! Good luck to everyone!

congrats ask_gcs!!!
Although my PD and ND is earlier than yours, i do not see any chance for my case. Probably it is stuck in the Name Check.

Just curious, according USCIS they are precessing case Feb 15, 05 whereas ask_gcs's case was received on Aug, 05. Does this mean USCIS is processing case for Aug, 05 or he was just lucky?

most of the non retro/current getting approved in about 3 months of filing

that is where CIS will show 6 months 485. however if one calls then they avoid by speaking of RD and then PD both to be met.

Thanks mb1 and WorryForGC...

I think with the priority dates being retrogressed, they are looking for Priority Dates rather than processing dates (RD/ND) to adjudicate the 485 cases.. Once the retrogression is over, maybe processing dates would come into picture...

This is just my assumption... We really don't know what's going on in there with USCIS...

Thanks,
