Hi Guys,
I got my I-485 interview in November 26th (Atlanta) since then I don't hear from USCIS but I renewed my EAD/AP. So I'm waiting for either green card or new EAD/AP because my EAD/AP and driving license will expire on March 19th. Have someone esle been in this weird situation?
Kind regards!

Hi everyone,

I need some help/advice about a RFIE. But first, let me give you a bit of background.
I am a US citizen. My husband is a Venezuelan citizen.
My then fiancé came to the USA May 24, 2018 on a K1 Fiancé Visa.
We were married August 18, 2018.
We applied for I-765 (EAD) and I-485 (AOS) and they were received to NBC on Oct. 25.
Nov. 21 biometrics appointment.
March 1 RFIE for I-485.

The case status for the I-765 still states "Case Received."
The RFIE for the I-485 says:
   "The petitioner/sponsor's household member on Form I-864 or Form I-864A must submit a complete Federal Income Tax return submitted to the Internal Revenue Service for the most recent tax year." There is also a handwritten note that says "Submit Form I-864 from a qualifying joint sponsor."

I am trying to complete my taxes, but I am not sure how to do it since my husband does not have a SSN or an ITIN. He is not working (since he does not yet have permission) and has no income. Am I correct that I cannot file as "single?" And is it true that my husband will need an ITIN so that I can file my taxes?
I am afraid that applying for an ITIN will just add several more weeks of waiting before being able to respond to the RFIE. Will I have to wait for my husband to receive the ITIN before I can respond to the RFIE?? From what I am seeing, that could be 7 weeks minimum.

My other question...is it okay for us to use a different joint sponsor than we used for the K1 visa? Or does it have to be the same one? The original joint sponsor was my father, but he is currently out of the country, so it will be difficult to get all of the required information from him.

This whole situation has become very difficult and stressful. It is hard for my husband not to be able to work or do anything, and relying on solely my income. We don't want to add any more waiting time to this than is necessary.

Any help/advice about the RFIE would be wonderful! Thank you in advance!

I wanted to have a general idea on how long it takes for the case to be approved and the green card to be in production following the interview at the NYC Manhattan field office. This is marriage-based I485 case (married to USC).

Could someone please guide me on this. I have my GC-EAD being married to US citizen but yet to receive my green card as my interview is not completed yet.

But if i want to work on 1099 as an software programmer, i was asked by the recruitment agency to have my own business entity.

Now my question is with my GC-EAD status, can i have a sole proprietorship business created and use it to work as an 1099 independent contractor. please advise

Hi everyone,

I'm hoping to get a sanity check from my fellow New Yorkers as the wait drags on for interview dates at the slowest offices in the country! It's been an insanely long journey for me as I began this process back in June 2016. My AOS is in the F2A category.

Timeline:
I-130 approval received: Oct 2016 with PD date of June 2016
I-485 filed: Oct 2017
Case ready to be scheduled for an interview: Oct 2018 (one year later)

So basically, I waited a whole year after my I-485 was filed until NBC approved the interim EAD/AP card and shifted the I-485 application to the interview stage. I live in Manhattan, so am assuming that this means I'm waiting for an interview date from the NYC field office which is currently upto a 31-month wait.

My questions for this forum:
1. What do you guys mean by PD date? Is it different from the Received Date? I ask b/c the USCIS processing times seem to calculate based on "Received date" rather than PD date. My PD date is almost 3 years ago (based on the I-130), but the I-485 was received 1.5 years ago which is below the 20-31 months range. Which one should I be using?

2. New Yorkers, are you seeing interviews being scheduled for people who filed the I-485 in late 2017?

3. Is there anything we can do to expedite (ha!) the scheduling of the interview?

Thanks for any advice you can provide!
