We probably need a few more parameters in place for that case before we can say anything - his FP date etc. This might be a random pick. But, you never know. I remember someone from Jan 2003 getting approved a few days back.

This might be totally unrelated. But, did you guys notice there were quite a few 485 approvals (mostly from end of 2001 thru around aug 2002) posted in the 485 forum?

Good luck to u all.

interesting scenario

Mine is pre-approved labor
140 & 485 Filed March 2003 - Concurrent
Finger print April 2003
EAD and AP approved in May 2003
140 NOT APPROVED YET
485 APPROVED BOTH OF US(MYSELF AND MY WIFE).

No idea how this happened...140 not approved and 485 approved.

We are going for stamping tomorrow to Newark. Please post any of your experiences. Lawyer asked me to be there around 5 AM.

Yes mine was concurrent filing. My I 140 was cleared long back. In bjsp's case both I140 and I485 were adjudicated together I suppose. His lawyer must have received the I 140 approval notice, if that is the case. He can only clarify that.

Good luck

Congratulations! You are one lucky dawg! Please pardon my language. :) How did you get your FP done in a month's time? Everything moved fast for you. What's your EB category?

I am changing the title to be "Unbelievably Fast Approvals" and sticking it in the top threads, so we can track all the unbelievable cases. :)

Why does a person need 140 approval if 140 and 485 are being approved concurrently?
For employer' s records,if it is based on such,I guess --as 485 is not connected or intimated to employer .When employer's files 140 to CIS,it is the obligation of CIS to intimate the approval to employer/agent and he has the 'right' to know.

This is really shocking news

I scanned in the morning EAC03-210 series with the ND 7/15/2003 and .... 4 approvals in the last week ... all of them RFE recvd ... what's going on? I'll try to scan all dates I have by Monday.

Are these 485 approvals? If so, that would be shocking.

Otherwise, if these are just I-140 approvals -- what's so shocking? We know the VSC is currently processing lot's of Jul/Aug/Sep EB3 and Sep EB2 cases so these approvals are to be expected, no? Or are you saying it's a bit odd that these cases all had RFE's -- maybe they're all from the same company with the same RFE?
