Hi everyone, thank you for sharing your time line, it's been really helpful.
Here is mine so far:
Priority Date: 8.30.2016
11/23/2016: I-485, I-140 (Premium), I-765 and I-131 were submitted all together.
12/06/2016: I-140 Approved
12/07/2016: Biometrics notice
12/12/2016: EAD Card received
12/23/2016: Biometrics completed
My I-485 is still in status "Fingerprint Fee Was Received".
Didn't get any RFE so I'm trying to think that "No news is good news".
It's been 4 months since my I-485 case was received and I know it might be too early to ask but I really find it hard to read NSC processing times.
According to their last update for January 31st they are processing cases received at July 2nd, is it safe to say that they're currently processing my case or they still didn't get to my case yet?
9/12/2016 - I-140 submitted
9/19/2016 - received receipt for 1-140
10/12/2016 - I-140 got approved
12/02/2016 - filed I-765 and I-485 together
12/06/2016 - received receipt for for I-485, I-765
1/19/2017 - received notice for biometric
1/25/2017 - received EAD/AP combo card for my son
2/1/2017 - biometrics completed for all
2/18/2017 - received EAD/AP combo card for myself
3/2/2017 - received EAD/AP combo card for my wife
Status of I-485 remained as " Fingerprint fee was received" for two of us and "Case was received" for my son, since Dec 2nd.
I think I am still within the timeline and hope this info helps other EB1C/NSC filers from the month of Dec'16.
I have filed I-485 with Texas Service Center in October 2016. Case status still says "Fingerprint Fee received". Based on the processing dates updated from USCIS website, my case is outside normal processing time.
Is anyone in the same boat as me? Confused as to what the next steps are. Please advise.
Concurrent Filing - I485/I140 - Premium Processing - Rejected Petition But Kept I140 For no reason
Good Afternoon Everybody,
Today, we received a Notice Of Action from USCIS. The package was sent and received on 03/09/17 at the Nebraska Service Center (Premium Processing)
The package sent contained the following (concurrent filing):
- I140 (Visa Petition with visa availbility Current as EB3)
- I485 (Green Card Petition)
- I907 (Premium Processing for I140)
- I765 (Employment Authorization Application)
The following was said:
I140 petition was received. I485, I907, I765 was rejected because of Visa category isn't available (which according to the last visa Bulletin, they are all current at the time of filing). They also talk about a form I-130 was rejected (we never even filed this form!!).
Now they are processing our I140 under non premium processing and sending back the rest of the application. It doesn't make any sense they just said that the visas weren't available and that was the reason of the rejection?!
I have no idea what happened when it was received at the Nebraska Center. They said now that they are sending everything back except I140 and we should receive the package in 10-14 business days. Everything was done by a lawyer.
It looks like somebody had no idea what they were doing. What a nightmare. Even the customer service had no idea.
Has anybody had a similar situation?
Here is the timeline FYI:
02/21/17: PERM Approved
03/07/17: Concurrent Filing Package sent to NSC (I140, I485, I907, I765)
03/20/17: Notice of action rejecting I485, I907, I765 but keeping I140 under no reason.
Any help would immensely be appreciated!
Thank you all in advance!
