Hi there,

Is it normal for there to be a delay between i-485 approvals for primary applicant and their spouse?

My wife (primary) got her green card on 9/8, but I haven't received mine yet (status online shows as finger print fee received).

EB1 - India - Texas Service Center

Filing/Priority Date - 23rd May
Biometrics - 23rd June
I140 Approved - 30th June
I765 Approved - 30th June
EAD received - 6th July

Waiting for I-485 now. Looks like it is current again starting October 1st. Does anyone have any idea on how long it takes for I-485 after I-140 is approved?

I got approved today September 8 2016

Filed May 31st 2016. Total time 3 months and 8 days, very quick especially considering that i got one, RFE that took extra months to receive, send and process.

Good luck to all!

Hi, I have an interesting path I would say. Started in getting my I-140 filed, but got a O1 in between to be able to travel and work on the many projects I had going on. Please note the time gap.

Service Center Nebraska (EB1 Premium) Timeline

40/9/2015 I-140 filing premium
4/21/2015 I-140 approved

Note: Had to travel a lot for my work, decided to get a O1 in the meantime

5/04/2016 I-485, I-131, I-765 received by USCIS
5/17/2016 Fingerprint fee accepted
6/09/2016 Biometrics notice received with 6/24/2016 appointment
6/22/2016 EAD & AP combo card approved
6/24/2016 Biometrics completed
6/24/2016 EAD & AP combo card ordered
6/28/2016 EAD & AP delivered
7/25/2016 I-485 RFE received
9/01/2016 RFE Response Received by USCIS

I was perplexed at first for the RFE since I have a very strong case. But then noticed I omitted in answering some questions on the forms just by simple error in not double checking my application.

I hope this won't take more than a few weeks to get the GC in production and mailed to me.

Can anyone comment or give feedback on

(A) the length it may really take.

(B) My RFE was in essence for my spouse and not me, RFE wanted more evidence our relationship, i.e. bank statements, certificates etc etc. Can there be another RFE after my 1st response ? or must they make final decision ?

06/15/16 : Concurrent filing of all documents (I moved to US on L1A)
07/01/16 : Finger printing done
08/28/16 : EAD and AP card received

Does this mean the I140 is approved? What other processes/steps remain before I get the GC ?

Thanks much

06/03/16: I-140 and I-485 concurrent filing (I-140 premium)
06/13/16: I-140 RFE
06/15/16: I-140 RFE response sent
06/30/16: I-140 approved
06/30/16: Fingerprints
06/27/16: EAD and AP approved
07/05/16: EAD and AP card received
08/08/16: I-485 RFE sent for current employment letter (officer 0137)
08/12/16: RFE response sent
08/16/16: RFE response received by USCIS and case updated on the website.

I've seen a lot of cases which were approved very shortly after such formal and simple RFE. I need to receive GC ASAP since only then I can start I-824 follow-to-join consular processing for my husband who is abroad and cannot come here for AOS as we cannot afford for him to drop the job and sit here jobless waiting for EAD for 2-3 months (sometimes it's also very fast, but you never know..)

What would you recommend? Would filing I-824 before approval trigger USCIS to look into my case and approve it in order to start working on I-824?

I know it's too early for SR or any sort of inquiries, but if i were to try one, what would you recommend?

Does the same officer request RFE and also reviews it? If so, anyone else has any experience with officer 0137?

Thank you
