    My status was changed from Initial Review to PDA.The status changed on Aug 7th. There is no CPO or Decision status in between.

    I see the following message
    On August 6, 2010, we mailed you a notice that we have approved this I485 APPLICATION TO REGISTER PERMANENT RESIDENCE OR TO ADJUST STATUS. Please follow any instructions on the notice. If you move before you receive the notice, call customer service at 1-800-375-5283.

    I got my 485 Approval notice copy on Dec 13th and haven't received any welcome letter or my actual card.

    Is any one in the same state. How long does it take for the actual card to come.

    I need to renew my DL by end of this month. Can I renew it using my 485 Approval notice copy?

    If it is not mistake you are thinking as Conspiracy. What is the motive of conspiracy? What I am telling is making all PD current was mistake as everyone will expect atleast 300k I485 applications and that many Visa was not available. They made another mistake to correct previous mistake. There is no pro or anti immigrant stand is needed to evaluate this. I do not believe conspiracy theories. Even 9/11 attack also so many conspiracy thories are there. Unless we get some evidence everything is speculative only

    why do you keep parroting the pro USCIS, pro -antiimmigrant line all the time?
    there are times when your realism makes sense, then there are others when it's plain silly.
    this was not a mistake. this was not an accident.
    civil servants do not show up on weekends by accidents. and they do not do 6 mnths of work in 15 days by mistake.
    it was intentional, directed and planned.
    you can believe whatever motives you want and you can sympathize with uscis till kingdom come. but pleaaasee don't tell me it was a random event, some act of god that is our destiny or such crap. please!

    Thanks for posting this I was searching for some advise on this aspect ....

    I have one questions based on this comment :

    If a person uses one of his I-140s and the adjustment is for some
    reason denied, it appears that there is no reason why they can not then
    re-apply for adjustment using the other approved I-140 providing all the
    requirements are met under the petition.

    So lets say Husbands 485 gets deined for some reason and the wife has an approved I 140 but her PD is not current any more, can the substiution still happen or are the couple doomed?

    Please respond.

    VO doesnt keep your passport if a via not issued at the time of the interview . He gives it back after the interview. Once you receive the email , you have to go the VFS office and then had in the passport.

    My bad. I was thinking he/she got visa and waiting on PIMS verification. For PIMS verification, consualte keeps passport and issues visa after PIMS validates the I-129.

    I think this is an opening and the outcome will depend on how we respond to it.

    We are in the middle of a fight to get recognised of our problems and for sure the director responded to our non-violent protest.

    What we do next will count.

    Should we lay down our arms a surrender now? This will be a sign of weakness. Lets fight on.

    Why is everybody so happy? He has just briefly and curtly informed in the message that flowers will be forwarded. They won't be sitting on my desk and embarrasing me. There is no acknowledgement of the issue or any empathy or compassion with the sufferers. Now even the press coverage will make USCIS director look good. I don't see what's the positive development here.

    I'm wondering if these figures actually provide ammo for people who claim that H1b is driving down salary. A $50k median starting and a $60k median is not that great.

    It's not too far off the mark. The median for initial employment is likely skewed by all the college hires and new arrivals. The $50k median is not too far off the mark from the $53,000 median reported by UIUC for 2005. The median for continuing employment is quite respectable at $68,000.

    NumbersUSA is calling in full strength to thwart the bill. We need to come out in full strength to make some noise. Please keep calling. We don't want to be checking visa bulletins or tracking receipts 1, 2, 3 years from now.

    Please burn those phone lines today! Every call counts!

    I have got email from my lawyer too regarding the change in bulletin coming MONDAY. I am worried for my life again. Is this all worth it? Title of her mail is I-485 could be rejected in July. I am done with this damn life. I can't take it anymore.

    I really feel like crying now. Sitting on h-4 for 4 years and now I see a ray of hope and that is squashed too. I don't think this is fair. This is just not fair. Why the hell in the first place they have to make it current? I feel bad for all of us.

    How many hours, how much money, how much effort, feelings, aspirations, hope. so much was built on that one news and the days from then on. and today it is NOTHING. I am sick and tired of this life.

    Who is there to listen to us? NOBODY. Who will straighten this mess for us? NOBODY. We support each other and today we again have just one another to fall through this.

    my 485 was filed during Aug 2007 , i had EAD as well that i never used.(EB3)
    i joined another firm and started off fresh using old PD, and EB2, which got ported

    I had 2 RFE on my prior 485 FOR medicals and EVL. that i answered ( company didnt had issues as long as i was paying for it)

    now How do i get my prior 485 to be merged, since its not an easy case, my new firm isnt willing to do so, can i raise SR/IO and try it? is it worth it

    Have you asked your lawyer? Check with your lawyer first as you say it is a little complicated. You don't want to mess up this late in the process.....

    DOS has alloted most unused visa # into EB2 category this year, and EB3 was stuck due to no additional unused EB1 visas.

    Visa Bulletin mentioned they did this in according to the requirements of Section 202(a)(5) of the Immigration and Nationality Act. But actually this might be a misunderstanding of Section 202(a)(5) and Section 203(b) - There is NO words in the act on how to allot unused visa # to differnt categories. Even the country limit and category limit would not apply if there are unused visas #. The allotment Mr. Charles Oppenheimer did horizontal spillover caused longer and more backlogs of EB3.

    Congress has a concern on the backlogs and Bush's administration promised to reduce backlogs as much as they can. If Immigration and Nationality Act allows the government to spillover the unused visa # to EB2 & EB3, and a more humane and fair system should take care of early priority date first and do whatever the government has promised, should we ask Mr. Charles Oppenheimer to think about alloting some unused visas to EB3 so it can move forword a little bit?

    Check John Hanity show and they will teach you the fundamentals. If employers don't earn any profits they won't do a business.


    Do you mean Sean Hannity from faux news? If that is the case, I rest my case because you are a bigger JERK than I thought. Anyone listening to Sean Hannity for anything other than entertainment must be a complete idiot. :D :D

    BTW, since you are a follower of Hannity, you may want to undergo waterboarding instead of Hannity, as he seems to have chickened out.

    I have a labor approved in Civil/Contruction job skills with PD Oct 2003 and my date is current now. However I am currently on a IT company H1-to be specific 'Business Analyst'.

    will there be a problem being now on a IT company H1 and filing for 485 with the Civil/Contruction approved labor..?

    Seems like there might be an internal memo or understanding between USCIS and DOS not to approve many Eb2 India 485 even though there dates are current, this is the only explanation I can come up for the lack for eb2 india approvals in October. Even with the limited number of visas every quarter I was hoping there would be lot of approvals because of Visa spillover occuring every quarter instead of once every year, but looking at the USCIS performance in the first week of october it seems like there wont be any quarterly spillover at all.

    POJ method can be used for all cases that are current and in the processing window...just keep on trying ur luck and I am sure you'll land a decent CSR who will be much much more useful and worth your trials and efforts.
    Be persistent and you have every right to be after all you came this far.
    Write to Janet Napolitano and mention that you are unfairly getting delayed and that you want to know what is holding your application and all checks and clearances done and visa number is available...

    Does anyone know what happened in this breakfast meeting..

    I am speaking from experience. Download the forms needed for filing 485, EAD and AP. Then when your attorney send you his/her set ( normally they do this in 2 stages - one they will send you a draft copy to verify and correct all info - some have online questionnaire; stage two - they send the final forms for you to verify and sign again - this they may do paper copy or online PDF - that cannot be edited - not fill able forms).

    So, here I am providing links to all forms that I know are needed. These from uscis.gov site are fill able. Weekend is coming. Fill them, and print and keep them.

    When attorney sends papers, compare yours with their and do corrections in theirs ( usually it will have stamps of the firm)

    Application To Register Permanent Residence or Adjust Status - I-485

    Medical Examination of Aliens Seeking Adjustment of Status - I-693

    There is a supplemental 693 also for vaccination records.

    Biographic Information - I-325 A
    There are A, B, C and other versions. I filled A

    Application for Employment Authorization - I-765

    Application for Travel Document - I-131

    Affidavit of Support - I-134

    I completed all these forms with 100% correct info- still the Paralegal - made mistakes again and again ( I can't correct the PDF as Adobe PDF writer is 1800 USD). I lost ONE precious week. Hoping to file on 06/01/2007, filed on 06/08. Learn and be wiser from experience, yours and others.
    We Are Legal Aliens, Legal Aliens on a path to become Legal Permanent Residents and ultimately citizens. Let's stop calling ourselves H1B high tech temp workers - and I changed my signature in the morning of one fine day when all dates became current
