  • Got I-140 approved, what is the next step?

    Hi Guys,

    Back in 05/22/2006 I got my I-140 approved. Now as far as I know I cannot submit my I-485 just yet due to the lack of available visa (all these according to my attorney).

    Now, in the "Courtesy" copy of I got from the former INS, they just say in there that she or he should get a I-485 form to adjust her/his status to be
    a permanent resident.

    Question is: Can I submit I-485 now?

    Thanks in advance for your help!

    After I-140 got Approved

    You need to wait for the application for I-485 to be available based on your Priority Date.

    I believe that as of today, under EB3, they are processing applications with PD of July 2001. I'm very hopeful that it will be moving a bit faster.

    We have the same case, I-140 was approved in April 2006. My PD is on October 2001.

    Hope this helps!

    Patience is a Virtue.
