AOS filing with careless driving ticket in NJ in 2009
I'm on H1 visa. My employer's immigration attorney asked me to file my GC with a private attorney who can handle criminal+immigration matters just because I had a careless driving ticket in 2009 in NJ. Does it really make sense? Any of you had any related experience? Does careless driving ticket in NJ really cause any issue with GC?

So I want to know if anyone had the same experience with there GC process
Our application is employment base GC L1A
Our I40 was approved June 2018
Our AOS was filed 8 Nov 2019
We got a RFE for our marriage Jul 2020 Where they requested what was my intention for marriage “ we’ve been married for 32 yr”
Well we send in proof. And they receive it in Aug 2020 But since then no response
Do I have to worry?

Just checked the status and it says interview was completed and the case is being reviewed. This is two weeks after. I see some people heard from them 30 days after the interview and some people right after. Anyone in CT got this and was approved right after?

@zman any word?

Advance parole question
I applied for advance parole I 131 for my 8 year old son [PD May 5, 2020]. It was filed concurrently with I 485. His biometrics for I 485 were completed on August 5, 2020. But I am yet to receive his advance parole. I raised a service request for it being beyond normal processing time. USCIS said it will respond by October 30, 2020. I have not received any response. What should I do next? Should I raise another service request? Thanks

Card was picked up by USPS
PD: June 28 2019 (Rest of the world)

12/30/2019 => Received Case
01/30/2020 => Fingerprint Taken
02/21/2020 => RFAE (Request for Initial Evidence) Reg: Birth Certificate
03/20/2020 => USCIS Received RFIE
05/22/2020 => RFE for Medical (Doctors signature was over 60 days when case was received)

I send the RFE response on June 1st and it was delivered to USCIS on June 3rd based on USPS tracking no.
After that there was no update online. I was worried if my RFE response got lost, therefore I called USCIS but did not get any useful response.
Next day I did a Service Request (Submit Case Inquiry) and after few days got the response that it was received.

From March to September there was retrogression for EB3 case.

On October 15th did another Service Request. Got the response my PD was not current or Immigration(visa) number was not assigned to me.

I was getting frustrated since there was no update since May 22nd. Therefore Yesterday Oct 26th I did a live chat with agent via Emma and got
the response that my case was approved on October 20, 2020.

Today, my online status changed to "Card was picked up by USPS".

Don't rely on online Case Status. Try to reach out to USCIS via Phone, Email(Submit a case Inquiry) or live agent chat (Emma)
