IWantFree,
I am a fan of brute-force :)

So, what I did was, I found out the last WAC number on my day. In toher words, find one WAC
number, whiuch is invalid (INS status-website gives the invalid message). Then, scann from 50001
to that WAC #.
As I said, this is stupid and brute-force method. But works :)

Dasbabu:

I'll do the same thing.
Could you give me a rough idea about
"how many total cases" or to what number you have tried on your RD?

thank a lot.

IwantFree,
On my date, there were about 4K cases filed. SO, it took me about 20 days (4K / 200) to find
out all I-140 cases. And, I found total of about 50 I-140 cases.

Hope that helps ...

I am a 2004 filer of Eb2 conc 140 and 485.

2003 similar filers - I have an impression that unless 485 is not ready to adjudicate 140 is not getting approved. Is it true to your cases.
Are there any 2003 conc eb2 filers who got their 140 approved recently and waiting for their 485s approval not having RFEs on 485s.

Please clear this up.

I think vcb,bluegcsep,dingdingdo can answer this.

TIA

Hi Dpshah,

Thanks.
The LUD for the 140 and 485 has been changed yesterday and I got the approved mails today.
The details are here.
140 RD : 08/25/2003
485 RD : 10/03/2003
FP on : 04/07/2004

Got EAD and AP long back and already applied for EAD and AP extension.

RFE on 140 : 09/28/2004 (our company was acquired by another company and we have been asked to explain the relation ship between the two companies.)
RFE replied on: 10/22/2004 (received USCIS by 10/26 and message changed)
140 and 485 approved on : 11/04/2004

Thanks and wishing you all the best. You folks are great.

CSC Strange behavior

Hi Folks,

Heres my story:
I140 and 485 LUD changed 11/03/04 - no status change.
Then got emails on 11/04/04 for 485 approval. checked csc online and I485 LUD showed 11/04/04 and status message says that I485 is approved and was mailed on 11/03/04.
guess what: I140 message is still the same old standard one stating that "it is taking 360 dyas... will mail you decision..."

Anyone else experienced this? where I485 is approved but no status on I140 approval. and also, is it even possible to get I485 approved without I140 being approved first???

my case details:
I140 RD: 11/20/03-EB3-subs
I485 RD: 03/29/04, AD(apparently)11/03/04
FP/AP/EAD all done and approved in May 2004.

Congrats ash2K10.

Could you post more details of your LCA-subsitute and your qualifications, as well as your Company size.
My I-140 date is in Sept 2003 and 485 in first week of March. But no information on approvals, the LUD got chaged on 10/27.

Thanks,

I am in the same boat as Gemini_70. Labor sustitute - 140 sept. 03 and 485 Jan 2004.
140 LUD - Apr 04, 485 LUD 10/27 - no message changes. My 140 is missing on the phone system but is accessible on the web. Boy I am in some sort of mess...
anyone has any idea on things missing in the phone system. What are the causes and is there a resolution to this mess...

I hate this wait...what an understatement... :mad:

Its a public company ~5-6B market cap, no major layoffs even thru downturn. My company's lawyers and the immigration dept. took care of all the details for LC.. all i was asked was to present reference letters.. and then sign my part of the I-140/I485.
Hope this helps

My I-140 approved

Hi All,
Now, finally it is my turn to get the I-140 approval.
My story/details goes like this:

I-140 with labor substitution filed on 10/10/2003
I am EB-2. Company size ~5000, some layoffs
No RFE; my application was not touched at all till
Nov 2nd, 2004. Suddenly LUD changed to Nov 2nd and then Nov 3rd.
Online status still shows "Received", but my attorney
received the approval notice (I am not complaining :)

That's it. am planning to go for 485.
Thanks to many people in this forum.
Best of luck to all the people waiting ...

Dasbabu
