Got laid off - Pending I-485 less than 180 days : Please help
Below is the details of my case :
H1-B - Got laid off
I-140 - Approved
EAD/AP - Approved
I-485 - Pending for 119 days
Employer will not revoke approved I-140
Service Center : Nebraska,
Received Date: 29 Jan 2017
Priority Date : Current (Rest of the world)
Got offer but employee will not do H1-B transfer. Planning to use EAD for employment.
Since my I-485 has been pending for less than 180 days, I am not eligible for AC21.
How risky is this ? What is the chance of case getting approved without USCIS knowing about my switching job.
I really appreciate if you guys share me your experience and knowledge.
I think I made a mistake on one of the yes/no questions my I-485. To the question "have you ever been arrested, cited, charged, indicted, convicted, fined, or imprisoned for breaking or violating any law or ordinance," I answered "No" because I had not been arrested, cited, charged, indicted, convicted, fined, or imprisoned, but I came to remember that years ago I had been "ticketed" and possibly charged for selling liquor without a license. (I used to own a restaurant and my server served liquor to an undercover police officer.) I always remembered it as my server's fault and thought it was a non-issue. In addition, the whole incident was caused by a misunderstanding (*I did have my liquor license*) and the case was dismissed very early on (I did not have to pay fines or anything). I had a meeting with the DA before I was scheduled to appear in court, and they told me that they would dismiss the case, which they did.
How can I correct this mistake? Can I correct it at the interview by bringing additional supporting evidence and laying them on the table? My interview is only one week away. I have already obtained my certified court record to show that the case was closed at management conference and dismissed. I can't sleep because of this. I would greatly appreciate your advice in this matter. Please. Anyone?
Filed both I-140 and I-485 concurrently on Dec 22, 2016 (Received EAD and AP on February 2nd week)
Was waiting for the I-140 ... I just got the approval notice for I-140 from my attorney, it seems the I-140 form approved on May 15, 2016. Please note that, the USCIS website still shows that my I-140 has been received, it seems they did not update the website.
Now waiting for the I-485 ... hope to get it soon.

My case was filed on May 2 EB1C Concurrent -I did not get any receipt no from USCSI
Today my personnel check was posted on my account -- have a couple of questions
1) Will EB1 Retrogression impact my case (which starts effective June 2017 )
2) since my case was filed in NSC --but the payment was posted on my account stating USCSI DALLAS -does this mean my case was moved to Texas service center ?
I-485 FILED JULY 2016, NO DECISION YET - anyone still waiting?
Filed 22 July 2016. They replied to my SR 45 days ago saying it was already in the hands of an adjudicator and asked me to reach back out if no response in 60 days. Still no word - not even any RFE. Anyone in the same boat still?
I believe Eb1 for India is retrogressing from Jun 1 , 2017. Does that means no GC will be used from now until October 2017 when it becomes current again?
Anyone in this category who just received their GC or who receives GC from now on till Jun 1, please keep this thread updated.
My biometrics were done on 4/10 but yet to hear on GC.
