My interview was completed in June 2019. Still waiting for the approval and production of green cards. I haven't received any RFE yet. I have the EAD card too. How risky is it to switch companies and in the meanwhile be unemployed during the transition (i have completed 180+ days restriction required before we switch, but asking about unemployed status during transition since my interview was completed in june 2019)

Thank you!

The current USCIS visa bulletin puts the priority date for Employment-based 1st (EB1) category for India as 01 JAN 15. So any applications approved before Jan 2015 would get a GC. My understanding is that this also means if I apply today (Jan 2020) using I-485, it would take roughly 5 years to get a GC through EB1 filing. Is that correct?

What I don't understand is, till March 2018, the cutoff date was current. So anyone who completed their interview and got approved by March 2018 and before in EB1 got a green card. How can USCIS then be processing applications from Jan 2015? What does it mean?

Finally, if my priority date is May 2018, how long would I have to wait? The cutoff date only tells me the wait time if I applied right now. How can I calculate the wait time for an older priority date?

I really need to hear experience of those who filled NIW EB-2 (ROW) at the Texas Center CONCURRENTLY. I filled concurrently in November of 2018 and my I-140 was approved in January of 2020 (a few days ago). Now, according to your previous/recent experience with Texas Center, I want to know,

- How long it may take that my I-485 gets transferred to NBC?
- How long it may take to get an interview scheduled for me?

Any experience in this regard would be highly appreciated. Thanks!

06.25.19 - Biometrics taken
07.07.19 - EAD/AP combo card received in post
12.03.19 - Online status "We are ready to scheduled for an interview"

1.13.20 - Interview date

interview was pretty straight forward. The officer was very polite and professional. the officer asked for my Paystubs, i-94,passports,w2, employment letter . He asked yes/no questions on the I-485 forms and current roles and responsibilities in the current role.

Good luck to every one!!

Does anyone here experienced a consular processing for an employment based green card? My lawyer was telling me to go back to Philippines and do a consular processing.

My timeline was:
1. Waited for my prevailing wage (July 2019)
2. Prevailing wage was provided by DOL (November)
3. Posted ads (December)
4. My lawyer filed a form (I am not sure what form is that) - January 2020

I am not sure what the next step is but I was a J1 then extended here in usa for 6 months mor as a b2 and she wants me to go back to ph for the process.

I received the courtesy letter for medical exam, but USCIS website case status shows "Request for Initial Evidence". In the meantime, I didn't receive any other mail from USCIS. I am so confused, what do I do now? please help!

Does anyone have experience with interview while being sponsored by an individual and not the company?
I am having my interview in a month and am super nervous about it.
Also does anyone have experience with having an interview for the future position? I switch to I-485 from F1 and even I got EAD few months back I didn’t start working for my employer because of medical reasons. I had to travel to my home country multiple times and have a surgery I am still recovering from. But my sponsor still intents to employ me after my recovery is done. Should I bring translated medical documents to an interview with me.
Andy advice will be highly appreciated
