Hi all,
Are there anyone who have applied employ basement visa as a F-1 visa holder? I am the one who applied EB3 while I am attending a college. I finished my interview on August, 2019 and my I-131 is just approved. I haven't received I-765 & EAD card yet though. 

My question is if I could work with I-765 & EAD card as a F-1 student. I've heard below. 
First, it is illegal to work as a F-1 visa holder. 
Second, one should maintain his or her status until I-485 is approved in case I-485 is denied. 

However, according to my attorney, I must attend school to maintain my status as F-1 and/at the same time I can work with I-765 approval/EAD. I told what I knew(above) to her, and asked her if there is any reference to look it up to double-check. Then, she said there is no reference and each attorney interprets the law arbitraily.
Has anyone had the same issue?

Hi all,

I'm the primary applicant (EB3-Row) and we have completed our interview in July, it went okay, currently waiting for October.
My husband HAS TO travel, and he'll be spending a month abroad. Did anyone travel during the process (after the interview)? If yes, can you please share your experiences?

Thanks in advance.

Hi everyone, I want to share my interview experience.
I had an interview recently was pretty smooth. IO asked me some questions from the profile, yes/no questions, and some original documents. The same thing asked my wife. We came with my 2.5 years old baby; she was born here in the US. IO was very nice; she didn’t ask any awkward questions. In the end, she said that everything is ok, and nothing is missing. She gave us notice that the interview is complete, and we need to wait for our priority date.
Mine is September 2017.
Do you know guys how I can check my status and where?

And so it was after exactly 2 yrs, we have our green cards in hand now.
Here are a few things learnt along the way;

1) Be super patient, really patient, it will really help through what can a long lonely walk sometimes....

2) Each case, family, individual & nationality is different so don’t necessarily believe everything you read will happen to your case. our i140 approval took 1yr 9months but the i485/interviews went by super fast after that. I know folks who applied same time we did mid 2017 who had longed gotten their cards & some other folks still waiting, it’s not straight science.

3) Do all you can not to complicate the process e.g address changes, travelling abroad during the process, etc.

4) Make sure you have a super detailed lawyer who takes nothing for granted

5) Don’t over stress the interview process ( at least for an employment based one), it’s basically a check on your career/personal details which is straightforward. We were interviewed by a very polite & nice young man who was himself an immigrant from another country working for USCIS - an interesting dynamic given today’s world !!!!

A prayer for everyone, may you ultimately succeed in the journey & get your cards as well. Just be patient, it will come eventually.
