AOS (I-485, EAD, AP) timelines
Posted 04 October 2011 - 06:58 PM
My EB1A petition was approved on August 31, 2011. I have filed for AOS on September 28th 2011. I have a few questions:
a) When can I expect the receipt notice from USCIS?
b) Since filing, how long does it take to get FP notification?
c) How long after FP notification does one get the EAD/AP?
d) Are EB1A based I-485s expedited, or do they take the same time as other categories?
Any inputs will be appreciated...

I got the receipt Notice from USCIS...
So that answers question (a).
My I-485, EAD, AP were filed on September 28, 2011. TSC (Mesquite) received them on September 29th. The Notice date printed on the I-797C is October 3, 2011.
I got the Notice from my attorney on October 6, 2011. It thus takes approximately 5-6 business days to receive the receipt notice. I will keep posting answers to my questions which may be helpful to others...

Mine is current effective from Nov 1st. Can you share what are the docs are required to file I-485 for

The following documents are required for filing I-485 AOS with EAD and AP:
1) Copy of passport
2) Birth certificate
3) Copy of I-94 and all I-20's
4) Copy of EAD (if applicable)
5) H1B/H4 approval notice (if applicable)
5) Photos. 6 photos for each applicant if applying for I-485, EAD and AP
6) Medical report for each member of your family who is applying. Make sure you have your immunization records in order, especially TDAP, Flu shots, Polio, MMR, Varicella if you have not had chicken pox, TB test report, Syphyllis test report.
7) Your current paystubs or letter of employment (last 3 months paystubs generally).
8) Your 2010 tax returns
9) Your 2010 W2 (I submitted last 3 years W2).
10) Filing Fee: $1070
You will need all the above for the principal applicant. For derivative, i.e. your spouse, you would need the marriage certificate additionally...
Hope this helps

Right off the bet incorrect. The same for the tax returns and W2s. Some other important documents are missing, though. Please read the I-485 instructions.

One also needs to fill out a small form: Details such as Name, Date of Birth, Country of birth, Citizenship, Height, Weight, Color of eyes, Color of hair, Alien Number, Application Number (i.e. I-485 and I-765 numbers from USCIS). Thats all that is needed...
Oh yes, they ask for identification such as Drivers license or passport...best to take both along.
