I-485 EB2 Timeline
Hi All,

I am a Canadian applying for a Green Card through the EB2 Category (Employment Based). I am still waiting for my Green Card and have been quite frustrated with the process so far. It is taking much longer than anticipated. My husband is also applying of the same based on being married to me. I have had to log many customer service requests and only had success with one.

As you will see below, my case was transferred right before the USCIS were about to hit their 60 day window to respond to my RFE which essentially delays my entire case again.

Please share your timeline if you have had something similar happen to you in the application process.

09/01/2015 - Filed I-485 / 1-765 / I-131
09/04/2015 - USCIS Received Documents (Day 1)
09/08/2015 - Finger Print Fee accepted (Day 5)
10/13/2015 - Biometrics Appointment Notice (Day 45)
10/22/2015 - Biometrics Appointment (Day 54)
11/06/2015 - RFE (Day 64)
11/24/2015 - Response to RFE Received. USCIS said to contact them if they do not respond in 60 days. (Day 65 - Clock resumes from when they received RFE)
12/10/2015 - Logged Customer Service Case on I-765 being outside normal processing time. (Day 81)
12/14/2015 - Email / Text Notification that records indicate I-765 was approved on Nov. 11, 2015. (Day 85)
12/17/2015 - Email / Text Notification EAD mailed (Day 88)
12/21/2105 - Cobo Card EAD / Advance Parole Received (Day 92)
01/12/2016 - Case Transferred to another USCIS Office (NBC) in Lee's Summit. (Day 114)

Have not heard anything since 01/12/2015 on my I-485. We are now on day 141. Why are case got transferred... I don't know. Employment based Green Cards don't usually have interviews. My husband still has not received his EAD or Advanced Parole combo card. He is going crazy not working.

Please share your timeline.
