Our Greencard experience
Thank you to this website for all the experiences. I am adding ours below
We moved from India to USA in Jan2017: landed in USA with L1A visa for family. My wife was primary and I along with our two daughter were L2. After landing, I applied for EAD for myself being a dependent and it was issued within 45 days.
Jan:2018 lawyer starts process of the green card
March 2018: papers filed for application for Employment based Greencard
April2019: Interview with USCIS as a family. Officer mentions that’s since priority date is not current, case under review.

Case shows regression and priority date was showing Jan 2015.

August 2019: we go back to Chennai as a family to get L1A family visa extended. We get visa extended till August 2022.

Jan 2020: case has still not moved much and now priority date becomes March 2015.

October 2020: priority date becomes current as per bulletin. On 14th October we get green card for entire family for 10 years

Priority date definitely moved ahead during COVID.

Hang in there to all applicants and hopefully you can get your soon.

New website to check status
Hi all , just a little information to share about case updates. Uscis website is going through some technical issues so is not able to update the cases that's why we are not getting updates online 😑. I have an account on dhs website which is updating the information timely. So I would suggest making an account on that website if you want to be updated online and timely.
Here's the link

EB1 India - PD: Dec 2017. Still waiting for GC
Hi All,

PD is Dec 2017
Bio-metrics - Apr 2018
EAD/AP - May 2018
Interview - Feb 2019

Interview officer said every thing looks good and we have to wait for the visas to be available (PD to be current). My priority date became Current in Aug-2020 USCIS bulletin.

However so far have not heard any thing from USCIS. Enquiry opened 10 days back, no response yet.

Any one waiting for GC with PD in the above date ranges ?

Thanks in advance.

USCIS records confirm that this case is pending at the Phoenix Field Office at this time. USCIS is committed to adjudicating immigration benefits in a timely and efficient manner while also ensuring public safety, national security and compliance with all relevant directives. While the processing steps for most applications or petitions are completed quickly, a small percentage of cases involve unresolved issues that may result in adjudication delays.

USCIS is unable to render a decision on your constituent's application until certain issues are resolved. USCIS is striving to resolve these issues as soon as possible. We are unable to determine at this time when the review process for the application will be completed.

We hope this information is helpful. If we may be of further assistance, please let us know.

Question - What process they are doing?

i-485 for EB3 Biometrics timeline

My husband (primary applicant) is filling AOS based on the October 2020 Bulletin. I am going to file my AOS as his derivative spouse.
However I need to travel (on H-1B) in November to take care of a sick family member. My question is, generally how much time it takes to get the Biometrics date after i-485 is filled ?
If I can not make my biometrics appointment, can my husband continue with his biometrics ?

Can someone please share their experience/inputs? Thank you in advance!
