Your current status is unimportant in attempting that type of GC. You need a lawyer experienced in NIW and EB1, so ask on that forum

Finally the long journey is over! I received my GC today in mail. Like CuriousGeorge once said: I am no longer curious, I AM APPROOOOOVED!!
Here is the timeline of my GC journey (not my entire US journey back in the 90s or 2004-2014 timeframe):

April 2014: My new employer immediately started the PERM process as soon as I joined them on TN.
July 2015: PERM got approved with no audit (the only thing I got lucky with in my GC process).
Aug 2015: I-140 was filed premium and got approved.
Sep 2015: I-485 was filed.

The pain starts:

· 4/6/16: Filed the 1st SR
· 4/7/16: SR response: in line to be reviewed by IO, contact in 60 days
· 6/6/16: 2nd SR filed
· 6/7/16: The same response as in the first SR.
· Some time end of June before the first congressional inquiry’s result, I had an InfoPass session. The IO seemed clueless and even told me my background check was finished. He probably meant fingerprinting results that come back within days. He told me that my file was shelved due to backlog. This was while tons of EB I-485 applications on or around my receipt dates were being adjudicated.
· 6/28/16: Congresswoman Kyrsten Sinema’s 1st inquiry resulted in: case is under background check. Congresswoman’s office also mentioned they cannot do anything about expediting EB applications.
· 7/31/16: Response to first Ombudsman inquiry: priority dates have retrogressed.
· 8/1/16: Priority dates retrogressed for all EB-2 until new fiscal year (10/1/16).
· 8/2/16: 2nd congressional inquiry resulted in: case still under background review process, contact in 90 days; also they would continue the background check even when the PD is not current.
· 11/3/16: 3rd congressional inquiry resulted in: still under extended review process.
· 12/2/16: 2nd Ombudsman inquiry resulted in: no specific time frame can be provided for my case (grounds for WOM).
· 1/5/17: 3rd SR filed
· 1/20/17: SR response: USCIS has to perform additional reviews
· 2/27/17: 4th congressional inquiry resulted in: my case is still not ready for decision and still under additional review process, contact in 90 days.
· 2/27/17: Ombudsman’s office also initiated their 3rd inquiry. No results yet!
· 3/31/17: WOM complaint filed by my lawyer.
· 4/18/17: Judge ordered: "ORDER that motions pursuant to Fed. R. Civ. P. 12(b) are discouraged if the defect can be cured by filing an amended pleading. The parties must meet and confer prior to the filing of such motions to determine whether it can be avoided. ORDERED that Plaintiff serve a copy of this Order upon Defendants and file a notice of service."
· 4/20/17: Summons submitted by my lawyer to all defendants.
· 6/13/17: Summons re-submitted by my lawyer to all defendants plus AUSA. (Still don't know why the lawyer had to re-submit)
· 7/3/17: USCIS issued RFE to re-do the medical exam that had expired.
· 8/1/17: USCIS transferred my I-485 from NSC to NBC. (probably wanted to schedule an interview; I told my lawyer to give them only a 30 day extension to do whatever interview they want to do or else we go to court hearings)
· 8/11/17: AUSA told my lawyer USCIS is trying to adjudicate the case before the court deadline of 8/18/17.
· 8/14/17: USCIS transferred my case once again back to NSC.
· 8/16/17: Case was approved.
· 8/17/17: Lawyer says he's got a copy of approval from AUSA and wants to jointly dismiss the lawsuit.
Can you please share the contact info for your attorney?

That attorney left Fragomen and he no longer does WOM (prob because of the griefs I gave him over my misspelled name in court documents :))
Why would you want to hire him anyway? Hire Murthy Law Firm in DC. They are the WOM experts and charge almost half as much as Fragomen does. Ask for Aaron.
