I-130 pending
Hi guys, I finished my interview last week but I couldn’t get decision right away because they didn’t received my I-130 from California Service Center.
My interviewer said once he gets my I-130, it will make decision.
But when I called USCIS today, they said my I-130 was transferred to LA field office and transferred to California Service Center again.
There is no updates on my case yet. What is going on to me? Why did my I-130 transferred to California Service Center again? Interview was done.

I’m married to GC holder, finished interview at LA field office

Master hearing in the immigration court while I130 pending
Hi everyone,

I have kind of urgent questions regarding master hearing in immigration court. I am posting it here wishing people that have the same experience may have answers to share. Many thanks in advance!

I filed asylum back in 2014 and had interviewed with USCIS and was referred to immigration court. My master hearing was scheduled end of this month. During that time, I got married and had a son with a US citizen, and he filed I130 for me. The I130 still pending, no interview after 21 months yet while the master hearing is coming up.

My questions are:

What kind of questions the judge is going to ask? Are there any questions specific to my asylum case that could be asked on the master hearing? Is he going to ask me if I admit to overstaying visa charge on the Notice to Appear? I am going to bring the lawyer with me, can he answer all these questions for me or I will have to answer? Does the judge have the I130 file or I will have to bring with me? My attorney is unresponsive and I am running out time to find a new one.

Thank you very much for your kind help!!

I-485 still being processed after 6.5 months
Hi everyone
I’m new to this family based forum. I wanted to find out if anyone is having a similar experience that I am having. My husband petitioned for me in July of 2018, and he became a citizen in July 2019, of last year; however our I-130 hasn’t been approved as of yet and it’s still pending, and my I-485 is still at the national benefits center. It’s been 194 days of waiting. And there’s no movement at all, my case has not been transferred to my local office yet, the status still shows as fingerprint fee was received. Should I be worried? Anyone else going through the same thing?

background check
hi, is there anybody who know how is the background check works? I asking this question for friend of mine , who apply for AOS through marriage to USC.
She went to interview in Jun 2019, and since then the case is hold for review due to background check.
The question is : Is the USCIS using the FBI and DHS file for background check only in USA,
or do they run a background check a brad from country of origin { your home country} ?

Thanks for response.

i filled for I360 and i485. After Responding to RFE on my i360, i received my EAD with Code C31. On my app it showed green and there has not been any other update(its 10 days now) while my I485 status has not changed since 660 days ago (and its blue)

first, receiving an EAD C31- does that mean my VAWA is approved?
second- since the status on I360 is green and shows ‘ Card was delivered to me by mail’. - what next should i do

third- has anyone been in this situation and what will be the next move

IR1 visa- no green card after POE 120 days
Hello everyone, I came to the US with IR1 visa in September 2019, we paid the fee before entered to LAX, I’m supposed to receive green card in 120 days and today is 132 days, my status is still showing “payment received”. We called USCIS and they made us an inquiry which we should get response in 2 weeks. Anyone has or heard similar experience? I’m so frustrated, thank you.
