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!
I submitted by i140 NIW application in July 2016. Received EAD card but no response yet in i140 approval. Submitted through TSC. Does anyone have a similar timeline and also have got no response or may have received a response from uscis?
I wanted to share my experience and thank all the contributors to this forum. It has helped me tremendously in the very long and stressful process of getting my green card.
Here is my timeline.
- PERM filed: Nov 2015
- PERM approved: April 2016
- Filed I-140, I-485 on May 31st, 2016 for me
- July 2016: received EAD for me
- Aug 2016: Filed I-485 for my husband
- Oct 2016: received my husband's EAD
- Nov 2016, upgraded I-140 to premium processing
- Dec 2016 - I-140 approved
- March 3, 2016 - I-485 approved for me. My husband got a RFE :)
- March 10, 2016: GC delivered
It took 9 months to get my I-485 approved. It was very stressful, but now, all is better. We are supplying documents for the RFE next week and it should be approved pretty fast after that.
PERM- June 2015

Good luck everyone. This forum has been very helpful to me. Be patient you’re next…
Nebraska has updated the website a couple of times recently and none of the dates has changed. I print each update to track the changes.. Are they working on anything? I do not think these dates mean anything. Some people get approved very quickly and some have been waiting for a long time. It seems to be very random.
Processing at Nebraska Service Center and my case is in eb1 category with priority date 30th August,2016. I140 got approved on 14th October,2016 and received combo card on 28th January,2017 but I485 status is still "Fingerprint fee was received". Is anyone here who received green card recently?please share your experience....I am so worried about it.
