L1B transition to L1A GC
Hi all,

I was originally transferred from my company on a L1B visa, but have been on L1A for 3 years now. The company plan on applying for GC, but is stating that my original transference was made on a L1B, it would have to pass through the labor department phases, event thought I am currently on a managerial role. Does anyone have more information on this? All the other managers in my company had their GC based on the executive category, which basically skips all the market research phase. I am not very familiar with the GC process, so I really appreciate some guidance on this.

Thank you very much

My green card case status says my case was sent auto an asylum office
Please help. I filed i485 application January 2020 . I did biometrics done on February, 2020. After that  my case status was saying we have completed fingerprint review and we will notify you when we make decision. But after 8 months, it says your case has been transferred to an asylum office for processing . that office will send you a decision or send you a request if it needs something from you. My status has not been changed yet it’s been 5 months now no letter came by mail. I'm really worried. Is it normal? Please any advice you could give me is helpful. 
Thanks

10 months of waiting for I-360 approval. Is it normal?
Hey guys! Please help!

I'm currently on R-1 visa, applied for I-360 Petition back in April 2020. Received the receipt notice beginning of April 2020.
Trying to get EB-4 GC. Applied through California Service Center.

Anybody in the same boat? Please share your experience with the I-360 and I-485 these days. I thought the processing time on I-360 was 5-8 months.

No Update After Biometrics Appointment
Hi everyone! I did the biometrics on 01/04/2021 but the case status hasn’t changed to “fingerprints were taken” till now. It still says “Case was received”.

Is this normal? How long does it take for the case to update? Has anyone experienced this before?

Employment based Greencard (Seattle) - almost an year now
I-485 case submitted in Jan 2021
RFE received for medical exam in May 2021
RFE response submitted and ACK received from USCIS in May 2021
No updates after that
USCIS opened Service request after calling USCIS couple of times

Questions:
1) Does USCIS respond to Service request normally in 1 month?
2) What are typical responses people get from "service request"? Is it processed by officer and speeds up processing or folks typically get standard answers that your case is in the window of processing times (which is 11.5 months to 30 months for Seattle).
3) Are others' seeing similar delays? How is the range "11.5 months to 30 months" calculated?
4) Any tricks/tips to speed up processing?
