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!

Hi guys,

I am applying for EB3 category GC.
I had two options
      1. to apply for concurrent processing (I-140 "premium" & I-485) on or after August 1st, 2016 since my PD will be current on August
      2. to apply for I-140 "premium processing" now and once approved apply for I-485 on August (hopefully early August)

Now, my question is that by choosing option 2, do you think I made the best choice. i.e apply for I-140 premium processing first then apply for AOS afterwards, or do you think I should have waited until August and applied for both (I-140 & I-485) concurrently.

PS: I filed I-140 "premium processing" a day ago so It might get approved sometimes early August. My thought process was why do I need to wait for a week or more to apply for concurrent application, thinking that concurrent won't make a big difference.
With that said, I know that concurrent I-140 & I-485 application gets processed in Nebraska Center NSC however, my application would be processed in Phoenix, AZ center (according to USCIS website) since I am not doing concurrent and based on my state.

Unfortunately, I was trying to find some posts regarding Phoenix, AZ processing time but it doesn't seem that people have some experience with that center.
Is there anyone by chance who applied at Phoenix , AZ center and how is the timeline & the overall experience? Also, what do you think about my choice of option 2.
