Being a silent reader, it's my turn to share my timeline.

Employment Based C09, EB3, ROW, NJ Filer !!

Receipt Date : 13 Feb, 2019
Notice Date : 1 March, 2019
Biometrics : 25 March, 2019

Waiting game continues ...

Tracked the number and it's delivering on 12th Aug.


Quick question too .. When can I expect my interview to be scheduled next ??

Such a wonderful forum .. Let's keep sharing and keep our hopes alive !!

Hi everyone,

I'm EB2 (filed I-140 & I-485 in Dec 18), and had my I-485 interview on 8/6 in Houston, TX.

Overall the interview went smoothly, the IO verified info and asked all the Y/N on the application.

The only docs he checked were birth certificate, marriage certificate, DL and passports.

At the end of the interview he said he will recommend our case for approval but my PD (Aug 18) is not longer current and should be current again in October. He indicated that the backlog might take up to 10 months to clear.

I find that hard to believe. From research on this forum I found that last year the backlog cleared after 2-3 weeks. Does anyone here have a similar situation/observation?

Also - I don't have my EAD card as it was lost in the mail. The application was approved but the card was never delivered so I applied for a new card, the case was received on June 20.

Do you know if I can travel internationally while I wait for the GC with my new EAD?

Hi Folks,

I am a regular viewer of these groups and today I have a question if one of you can answer:
my current project in Texas is over and I am getting new one Chicago or LA.
My current address is in Texas and it never changed during GC process yet. my current GC status is my i-485 is in process (not yet approved) but I got EAD.

I am planning to keep the base location ( which is Texas) to avoid any address change etc thing, so my family will stay here and I will go to new location for project.

My concern is:
is there any negative impact of doing it on GC interview time? and what should I make sure to avoid any problem in my pending GC process due to this ?

Received Courtesy Letter about "Two passport-style natural color photos for the applicant"

(Received separate 4 letter for four of us)
They mentioned that do not mail photo. If you receive an interview notice in the mail, you must bring information to address these issue to your interview appointment.

Is it a RFE? What they will do now? Still haven't received EAD. Timeline in my other experience please.
