I hope my experience could give some insight to other guys waiting to get sorted out by USCIS.

French citizen, born in Morocco. Married, two kids

on O1 temporary visa, EB1A application, NSC, self-sponsor

-Nov20,2016, Filed I 140 premium processing
-Nov28, got RFE on I140, had to prove that the company I created really makes business with other companies as they do not trust press releases. Letters from customers testifying that business development is ongoing have been produced
-Jan 20 2017, responded to RFE
-Jan 27, I140 Approval
-Feb27, filed I 485 and advance parole
-April 7th, got Combo Card EDA
-April 13th, had fingerprints taken
Then nothing happened until:
-Sep 20, I485 RFE, had to provide birth certificates from country of birth(Morocco), not from country of citizenship(France). Had to prove that I still work on extra-ordinary capability topics. I produced a letter of employment and pay stubs
-Oct 10th, responded to RFE
-Oct 18th, Approval of I 485, card in production
-Oct 23, card mailed to you
Oct-25th, received GC cards for the whole family.

My GC journey comes to an end. I am very proud to be part of the country of opportunity. I wish good luck to everybody while waiting. I will keep sharing my experience in this thread from time to time.

I got my EAD/AP in Jun 2017 under eb1c - India filing. I-140/I-485 is still pending. Petition filed concurrently on Mar 22.

Suppose my current employer decided to layoff from my current job, what are the options I have ?

Is the EAD helpful getting another job with different employer, what are the risks?. I am still holding onto my H1B status.

My agency applied for my I140 last July 2015 and only last May of 2017, when I checked the status of my application it's placed on RFE. I'm worried because it took me for almost 2 years prior I got a reply from USCIS, and worse it's placed on RFE.What are the chances that I might get an approval?
My problem is my agency is not even disclosing anything regarding the RFE nor asking for additional documents from me.

Anyone here who has the same experience?

Hope for your response. Thanks

After a bad start with another company that was taking too long to file my petition, I asked around to my work friends on another firm and they reccomeended sir Jonathan Goslow. Two of them had worked with him doing their rfe against a difficult officer and said he was really good. Wow. I had a discussion with him and was impressed as well. He really knows much about 140. And they even offered the same things like money back if we not approved. We are already so far along. I'm just so hapy we choose to go with that them. They are so fast.

Biometrics - August 2016

Processing at TSC
Waiting for feedback

If anyone has the same timeline let me know if you received approval already or still waiting.

I wanted to thank Chen group for the great job they did on my I 140 case. They worked with me to prepare my case. During the preparation they were responsive, fast and professional. They did a great job and my case was approved without any RFEs.

I am very grateful to Chen for the amazing job they have done.
When I started contacting the lawyers for Green Card application more than a year ago, I was told that my case is weak, the number of citations was low (~40 at a time of submission) and it is better to wait. Chen Immigration Law Associates was the only firm that said my case is strong and in case of denial I’ll get the refund. I couldn’t afford waiting any more so I decided to apply with their help. I am glad that I made that decision. I have got I-140 approval!!! They are really great at what they do!

I was just contacted regarding the approval of my self-petition for permanent residence in the NIW category.

Here is some of my background information:
Degree: Ph.D. from a research University in the USA
Field: Microbiology/ Biomedical engineering
Job during petition: Post-doc (on H-1B VISA)
Publication: 11 research articles, 1 review article
Total citation numbers: 441 (October 2015)
Home country: TAIWAN
USCIS processing time: 147 days

When I began the application, I knew my case was strong but didn't know how to start. I contacted several immigration lawyers, said that they have a total refund policy (for people like me who have a strong case) if the application is unfortunately rejected. So I decided to retain the firm.

Although I never met them in person, they were prompt in replying my questions and concerns within 24 hours. They are extremely professional; they wrote an excellent cover letter and four beautiful recommendation letters for me that were tailored to my background. Because of all their help, the only thing that I suffered from the process was the time awaiting for the USCIS to make the decision.

If you need to work like a real person does and don't have much time dealing with all the law and regulations, save some money to hire an immigration attorney to help you.

Filed my case under premium processing with EB1A category. On september 14th 2015 the USCIS received the packet. On 16th they issued the case receipt notice which was mailed to me and I got it on 19th. I checked the online status and the online status showed case approved as of Sept 17th 2015.
 Excellent experience with WeGreened. I highly recommend their service. The documents and instructions are very easy to follow. One suggestion: PLEASE WRITE YOUR RESEARCH SUMMARY AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. It took me almost a month the get this task done. AND my recommenders were a little lazy. The whole process took me less than 4 months from scratch to I140 approval but I know that almost 7 weeks were wasted on my part.

Great service by WeGreened and would definitely recommend any and everyone who is looking for green card application under any category.

Here is my case:
Paper 12 (with 2 paper in Chinese)
citations: 170
review: 24
Field: Biology (molecular biology)
Filing date: March 24, 2015
Approval date: August 13, 2015
attorney: WeGreened

I would like to thank WeGreened for their professional help on my case. They gave me instructions on each step. The only good thing I have done in the whole process is to follow their instructions. Yes, all credits should be given to WeGreened for the approval of my case.
If you are busy or don't know how to handle I140 petition, I highly recommend WeGreened.
