I am Indian IT employee and started my GC process in end of yr 2011 and had my I-140 approved in July with priority date of JUL 2012, I married in 2016 , my spouse is Pakistani so i filed for AOS( Adjustment of Status) ,

May 17 - i 485, i 765 & i-131 (sent to USCIS)
July 7 - i 131 approved
July 13 - EAD cards were mailed
July 22- Fingerprinting done
Note - We received EAD cards before fingerprinting
i485 - It says, USCIS accepted fingerprinting fees and case is processing at Nebraska centre and at this centre current dates Jan -2- 2016 for AOS i485 processing published by USCIS,

THIS means for i 485 i need to wait for 3 more months i.e. in Dec or more or before . I am confused regarding this timeline.

Can someone share there experience or expertise

Hi Everyone,

Was curious to know if USCIS has approved any cases under EB1/EB2 category in last 45 days, specially Aug month.

Seems processing time site information is showing I-485 cases approved till Nov 25 2015 but didn't find any information on site or thru personal connect.

My I-485 PD is Nov 30 and I have no update as yet, was wondering if there is any way to find out if it is moving at all.

Hi everyone,

My I-140 (premium processing), I-485, I-765 and I-131 was submitted July29. I-140 was approved Aug12. I have received a notice in the mail saying that my I-485 has been received and being processed at Nebraska service center.

If I look at the current processing time at NSC, it appears that they are dealing with employment based I-485 applications dated Jan2. Does this mean I will need to wait almost 8 months before there is any further progress on my application? I'm a little confused because I can see notes from others on this forum indicating applications that were submitted after Jan2, and already been completed.

Many thanks.

My employer is going to file my GC in EB1C. Can they do the concurrent filing for EB1C Green Card in August 2016 as the dates are moved back to 2010?

My PD is Feb 2.

Filled i-140 and i-485 concurrently as EB2. Was on F1 status, however when I received the AP I left the US and reentered on May 28th.
First the i-140 was regular processing then we switched to premium. The two receipt notices show EB2. Approval notice of i-140 came on June 13th as EB3. My attorney did not notice until I got the denial for the i-485 on July 20.
We called the NSC and they mentioned that they will let us now in 15 days. However, I read that if they ever going to change it back to EB2, that would take at least 2 months. Now this would pass the date to reopen the i-485. Can something be done beyond the 33 days?

Anyone knows if they would react in a timely manner? I stopped working based on the denial, worried about if they will let me finish my degree at school, and my life and health is ruined. Should I contact congressmen and senators? Schedule an infopass? Is there anything that would help?

Also after we received the denial, we filed another i-485 as EB3 with TSC. Any insight as to when I could get a new EAD or the GC based on this second application?

Thanks in advance!
