Case approval was certified
I got a change to my i140 case status as " case approval was certified and sent to appropriate appellate authority and that office will send you final decision."

Does anyone know what exactly this means?

EB1C I-140 Appproved
Hi All,

Sharing my experience with I-140 processing:
1. December 15, 2020 - Attorney submitted I-140 petition
2. February 23, 2021 - Receipt notice with 12/15/2020 priority date
3. July 15, 2021 - I-140 approved

I-140 was processed by Texas Service Center

Luckily did not receive any RFE, these were anxious months as the processing timelines at TSC for EB1C processing was 9 - 24 months but received approval in exactly 7 months.

Good luck to all who are waiting for approval, it will come hang tight.

Pending I-140 and Consular processing confusion! Kindly suggest
My cousin has filed for I-140 for EB1-A and is in the US but opted for Consular processing as he plans to leave for his home country in 2021. Unless the final action date is current they won’t process the green card in consular processing in one's home country. But one question what if dates for filing for EB1 A become current and one is in the US but opted for consular processing? What happens then? Can one submit all documents for consular processing when the dates for filing becomes current from the US? And instead of a previously opted place for an interview (home country) can one change that later?

Would appreciate a prompt response.
Thank you!

GC Question - Unresolved Consumer Civil Case
Hi All,

One of my friend has an unresolved consumer civil case and he is planning to start his GC process. Does USCIS has access to such background info as cases in consumer civil courts? Would it be a problem in any way even after it gets resolved?

Big Thanks!

Pls help asap - I-140 denied and out of status
Hi everybody.

A friend filled for EB-2 NIW I-140 concurrent filling with I-131, I-765 and I-485 last year October.
He got the EAD on last year december.
Last month he got a denial of his I-140 after an RFE.
He asked some questions to me and I don’t have the answers.
I really appreciate any input.

He came as F-1 student last year and filed all forms listed above on Oct, 2019.
On Jan, 2020 he quit the ESL school, signed the papers and, I beleive, he became out of status now after the denial.
After the I-140 was denied last month:

1) Can he stay in US and fill a new I-140 even without lawful status ? (he quit his school 9 months ago)

2) his EAD expires on Dec, 2020. Can he keep working with his current EAD ?

3) does his unlawful status period start to count on the day he quit the school or on the day his I-140 was denined ?

Lost job after I-140 approval. Please help!!
My details:
PERM approved - July 2020
I-140 approved - Sep 2020
H1-B - in my 6th year - Expiring Feb 2021
H1-B extension applied - Sep 30, 2020 - PREMIUM

I was let go of the job and serving the last 2 weeks. Currently awaiting a decision from USCIS on H1-B extension. Could you please help with these scenarios?

1. H1-B extension approved before employment termination, I-140 revoked by the employer after termination -
- Can I still work in the United States using my approved H1-B extension?

2. H1-B extension NOT approved before employment termination, I-140 revoked by the employer after termination -
- Can my future employer file for an extension? Is this possible considering PERM filed one year before H1B expiration?
