My Birth Certificate is in Indian regional language. Is this Birth Certificate valid for 485 or do I need to translate it into English?
Sure. But it doesn't change a thing. Would've said the same thing in 08. By throwing a bone (EAD card) USCIS have played with EB3 indians and have very effectively throttled the green cards.
Bump... Keep this thread alive again...
My question is when is the latest that one can get married so as to get his/her spouse a GC on the same application.
Any ideas about this?
Once Priority date beconmes current, whithin how many days should I-485 petition be filed?
No immigration provisions with HR 2
02/02/2007: Senate Passed H.R. 2 Without Immigration Reform Bills
* During the debate, the immigration reform bill introduced by Senator Kerry as Title VI was agreed to, but it appears that at the last minute the immigration reform bills were sliced off along with all other bills which are not related to the minimum wage in passing H.R. 2 at 5:00 p.m. by the Senate. We incorrectly reported the immigration bills were part of the H.R. 2 which the Senate passed yesterday. The final H.R. 2 bill passed by the Senate is expected to go to the Senate-House Conference committee.

efiled on 05/21
EAD expires on 09/11
Hope we get our EAD approval soon.
I think they had a system glitch for some time. All the people who got an LUD on 7/22 essentially means that TSC had received the FP on that date.
I have an infopass on 14th I will see what information they will provide.
I will keep you all posted
This is how it works....
2011 - EB2 gets current
2012 - EB2 retrogrades because all indians start applying in EB2.
2019 - EB2 current
2020 - EB2 retrogrades again
In the mean time .......
2025 - 50 k EB3 Indians are appying for EAD and AP for the 20th time and hoping that they do not get harrased at the POE while coming back
My PD is current but my lawyer is saying that I CANNOT file I-485.
My labor cert / EB2 was originated in Illinois and then amended for Virginia by G-28.
Since my labor cert approval, i moved to Califonia - same job, same company.
Now my lawyer is saying that I need to go back to Virginia so i can apply for I-485.
1. Do i have to go back to the same state/location at I-485 filing stage where my Labor was originally approved?
2. Doesnot Green Card is for a future job?
3. Can i file I-485 while I am in California and my labor was approved for VA?
Please advise - thanks
I have asked Rajiv Khanna the same question when I moved to new location after GC was filed in Phoenix, AZ.
I moved to Reno, NV and the opinion of Rajiv Khanna was :
You can work in Reno and file your 140 and 485 also while working in Reno. If it takes longer than 180 days to process your 485 (which most likely will be the case) then you can invoke your AC21 portability options and continue working in Reno upto the end of 485 processing and even after that.
If it takes less than 180 days for USCIS to process my 485 file, then the AC21 portability option is not available to me and as soon as 485 is approved, I have to move back to the original location (Phoenix) in my case where my GC was filed.
Most likely, in my case and in your case, 485 is going to take a lot longer than 180 to process and the AC21 portability option will be available so we would never have to go back to original location to work from there the GC was filed.
In this case, you should almost wish that your 485 takes longer than 180 days (may be 190 days ideally) so that you dont have to go back.
Your lawyer seems to be not very experienced and you should get a second opinion.
Also sent you a PM.
