Hello everyone,

First of all, I would like to thank this group for existing.

March 2017 - Labor Cert. Application
November 2017 - Labor Cert. approval
January 2018 - I-485 and I-140 application was sent
March 2018 - EAD cards received
May 2018 - biometrics were done
January 2019 - I-140 approved
March 2019 - Request for evidence
May 2019 - RFE was submitted and received by immigration
July 2019 - interview was scheduled
Aug 2019 - interview
Aug 2019 - RFE (medical exams renewal)
Sept 2019 - RFE received by immigration
Jan 2020 - I submitted an SR (best thing I did)
Feb 13th 2020- Card being produce notice (finally!!!!)

I really hope my experience is helpful.
My process was at the Texas Service Center office.
My local immigration office: Kendall -FL
Good luck everyone:)

I have already received my I-765 and I-131 in November approved

F1 on CPT filling Perm Cert with another employer
Hello Everyone,

I am on my second Masters program after completing my first and working on OPT. I'm currently on CPT with another employer as a Financial Analyst. However, I got a job offer from a different employer and they want to file my GC as a new employment and make sure I have it in hand before starting.

My question is this, is this going to be an issue since I am not currently working with them and would not be able to show pay stubs? Would they be wondering why I am applying h with another employer whilst on CPT with a different employer?

The new employer also wants to file an EB3 even though I meet the qualification of an EB2. They said they wouldn't be able to pay me the prevailing wage if they go with the EB2. Will this be a red flag with when they finally apply for my GC?
