Hi, I am from Malaysia. I applied my Asylum in May 2018 while my National Interest Waiver (NIW) I-140 petition that I submitted in April 2018 was pending. My I-140 petition was transferred from the Texas Service Center (TSC) to the Houston Asylum Office (HAO) to be merged under the same A number. We had contacted the Houston Asylum and according to the response, the I-140 will not be adjudicated until the asylum case has been adjudicated. I read somewhere that there is no provision to prevent one from filing different petitions with the USCIS. My employer is going to file a PERM Labor Cert and then I-140 upon approval. Anyone has the same issue/experience? What can I do to get my I-140 NIW to be transferred back to the TSC so the petition can be adjudicated because the asylum has been pending and I don't know when it will be adjudicated.Currently the I-140 is outside of the normal processing time. Thank you.

I waited 3 years and 7 months. It's totally normal.
Thanks for your reply, how long did it take to get the result after the interview ? I spoke to my lawyer about it he seems to think it's probably almost time for interview any day now ,he said it is taking around 3 years for older cases in San Fran area however lots of people are also being interviewed under (last in first out )

It took me 19 days to get approved. I was surprised with how quick I got the result.
