Hi all,

I finally received the interview letter for my I-485 application. There is a template list of items to bring to the interview session. One of them is birth certificate. My birth certificate is not with me right now, though I can ask my parents to mail it to me. My first question is that do they really check my original birth certificate? I had submitted a copy of that with certified English copy when filing. Now that they want to see the original BC, is it OK that I translate it for them myself? I may not have enough time to have that translated in my home country and then have them shipped to me. I wonder if myself can be the translator of my BC and of course I am fluent in both languages.

May you input the documents that immigrant officers ask for at the time of the interview? I assume the actual items are different from the templated list. I had never here from anyone to present his/her BC at the interview for example. Many thanks for helping me to prepare for the interview. It may be one of the most important days of my life :-|

Hi all,

I am new here, and I have a question, as I am willing to expedite my EAD. If this matters, I am greek. Thank you very much for your time in advance :)

I-765, I-485, I-130 Submitted: 11 March 2019 at NBC.
Biometrics appointment: 11 April
Biometrics completed: 15 April.

I have currently a job offer starting 26 of August in a big company in the Bay Area. And, the statistics of the processing time seem to be long, so I would like to try to expedite my case. I know that the job offer itself does not guarantee 100% success on the expedite but I will give a try.

Question 1: may I attempt to expedite my EAD right now or wait till 11 of June that 3 months will already be passed?

Question 2: I will claim financial loss to myself if I lose that offer. Currently I am a postdoc and my job ends on Feb 2020. Should I also ask my company to write a letter for financial loss if I don't go on time, to improve my case? I know, it's a big company so it might be difficult for them to claim it, but maybe they could.

Question 3: I read many posts about EAD expedite through a congressman, and I really do not understand what are the steps for that. Should I go to the congressman, and they do everything, namely they call USCIS, they fax documents etc? Or, should I call myself USCIS, and then go to the congressman?

Good luck to all waiting :)
