Tsc EB3
I've been visitng this site regularly for last few months. Would like to say thank you for all the helpful post. I'm still waiting on my green card however today my wife got her EAD which is such a relief!! Since my wife has come here to states she couldn't work even tho she has a masters degree in psyc and very passionate about her carrier. Her EAD finally came after 15 months of waiting and sitting at home and not able to pursue her carrier.

Here's our time line.

Dec 2015: hired a lawyer
Jan 2016 to nov 2016: filed wage determination and job advertisements
Nov 11: filed PERM
19 jan 2017: PERM approved.
13 April: i140/ i485/i765/i135 received by uscis. (Me and my wife) . lawyer applied late saying they were busy with the H1 season.
23 April: I40 approved (premium)
5 May: biometrics done
May 25: my wife's EAD/AP approved.
May 31: card mailed
Jun 2: card received

As you see mines nothing approved yet but my wife's is. I already have a job obviously so it doesn't matter to me. I'm still happy and relieved cause you know happy wife happy life!

Timeline for my case with NSC
Your timeline sharing helps me to calm down with my green card process and give me lots of hope. Finally, we (family of three) received the approval of I485 and waiting to receive welcome package.

So, just like others, wanted to share my timeline so others can sense some trend.

FYI, when I applied I140 & I485 back in Aug, 2016, there was unexpected delay in EB-2. So, my lawyer suggested me to apply EB-3 instead. So, I am not sure whether this EB-2 or EB-3 could affect my timeline.

Anyway, here is my time line:

Service Center: Nebraska Service Center
PR : Dec 10, 2015
RD : Aug 23, 2016
I140 approval: Aug 29
Biometrics: Sept 27, 2016
AP received: Oct 24, 2016
RFE request : Feb 20, 2017
RFE received : Feb 22, 2017
I-485 Approved & card will be mailed: June 1, 2017

It was long wait... Don't give up.. it will happen soon!

Hope this help.

My spouse and child are planning to apply for adjustment of status based on my approved EB1 I-140. Which A-number should be used on the derivative application? Is it the A# from my I140 approval? My spouse already have an A# from the EB2 I140 approval. Could someone help me with this?

Thanks in advance,

RFE on I-485
I have received an RFE on I-485 for test for gonorrhea. I checked with the doctor and she said she got the notification for this test after one week I did the test last year in August. She is ready to do the test again but my concern is medical examinations will soon be expiring (the medical examinations have a validity period of one year). And given visa retrogression, my medical examinations will be expired by the time that visas become available, and my application will be ultimately ready for adjudication. Even though my PD is Dec08th 2016, will the retrogression impact me?

Even if I respond to the current RFE, will I receive future RFEs for complete, new medical exams. Should I continue with this single test and send the response to USCIS or should I do complete medical test again?
