  1. I 485 is an individual application and you do not need any attorney. If you can follow I 485 instructions then you could file on your own and no need of any attorney.

    Switching to EAD from pending 485

    Of course yes. No point extending L1A visa, getting unnecessary rfe's, loss of peace of mind, etc... Just switch to ead.
  6. Thank you for the graphical representation. Any predictions till end of this fiscal year (September 2018)? -> 2013 movement (01 Sept 2004 - 15 Jun 2008) ~ 4 yrs 2014 movement (15 Jun 2008 - 01 May 2009) ~ 1 yr 2015 movement (01 May 2009 - 01 Jan 2006) ~ Back wards 3.4 yrs 2016 movement (01 May 2005 - 22 Feb 2005) ~ Back wards 6 months compared to 2015. DF introduced 01 Jul 2009. 2017 movement (15 Jan 2007 - 22 Aug 2008) ~ 3 yrs 2018 movement (15 Sept 2008 - 22 Dec 2008 and still counting...) ~ 1 yrs. From the trend every alternate year uscis is moving it 3 yrs and next yr they are moving it by 1 yr. So for this yr I do not see it going beyond 08 Feb 2009 (as per DF chart prediction). But due to remaining other country visa spill over it might hit 01 Jun 2009. vow ~9-10 yrs back log!

    Change of status with Approved EB1A I-140

    Jan 2012. How long will it stay there? Any idea? -> Will become current around Oct 2018 H4 and apply for EAD? -> Might take ~6 months
  8. 1. Yes both spouse and you can file i 485 (individual applications) as long as you have the marriage certificate. If spouse is on H1, still she could file along with you. No need to convert from H1 -> H4. If spouse is working on H4 Ead, even then she could apply together. 2. Reg. new company starting your gc, you might get gc even before company B files gc. I think just submit I 485 J form

    EB2 India progression

    Currently its 22 Dec 2008. Every month its moving 7 days. Next bulletin (May 2018) it might be 01 Jan 2009. Next (June 2018) 08 or 15 Jan 2009. July 2018 it might be 22 Jan 2009 Aug 2018 it might be 01 Feb 2009 Sept 2018 it might be 08 Feb 2009 Oct 2018 it might be 15 Feb 2009. So end of the year I am 100% sure your date would be current. Congratulations!
  10. All you EB1 managers get ready for the backlog drama which EB3, EB2 are facing for over a decade! Take a look at the pending I 485 inventory: https://www.uscis.gov/sites/default/files/USCIS/Green Card/Green Card Through a Job/Employment-based_I-485_pending_at_the_Service_Centers_as_of_January_2018.pdf Abuse has already began for EB1 applicants from India starting 2015 (420), 2016 (5212), 2017 (7890).

    Priority Date and I-485 Interview Requirements

    keep dreaming is a good positive approach!

    Will my Greencard be revoked?.

    When you divorced ur husband how are you still claiming the gc?
  13. Get ready for the gc waiting drama. You would need to wait for another 1-2 yrs. I am positive based on nsc, tsc and csc processing timelines. They have a back log of 1 yr each!
  14. You legally (on h4) spent ur fathers hard earned money (already tax paid) for ur studies. Your spouse claimed it as a deduction is correct as its ur right since you already paid the tuition fee+tax to ur university.

    H1 extension Denied - options available

    its a mistake to come to usa! we all are trapped into h1, h4, f1, f2, etc...gc trauma! Its a sheepish abash that kids are citizens and parents are aliens!
  16. current ead timelines: csc, nsc, tsc, vsc shows Oct 1, 2017 (approx. 5 months back log). You can add up 1 more month to it for card production and usps delivery or lost delays.
  17. Go for L2 -> H1b premium transfer based on already approved I 140. You would get results in 2-3 weeks. During this time, go on un-paid vacation at your current work place.

    H4 Rejected twice need guidance

    In usa 2 mens are getting married legally. You are in a much better relationship. I think you still need to dig deep into ur h4 case and find out the exact reason why it got denied.

    Travel while H4 extension pending

    you are almost there. Request your spouse to be patient for 1 more month. Do not give up and hold your breathe.
  20. make sue ur still married to the usa citizen spouse even after 365daysx2. Happy gc honeymoon!

    RFE - Status Update

    tsc is the most notorious service center. Chances are it might get transferred to your local jurisdiction after 1-2 months and then the actual 1-2 yrs waiting period starts ie uscis timeline back log delays.
  22. uscis officers are happily withdrawing their monthly salaries and celebrating valentines day, etc... auspicious occasions in usa.
  23. what a waste of visa numbers and more business for attorneys and lawyers.

    I think spouse should attend h4 stamping with new employer i 797.
  25. 1) during 240 days when my i94 is already expired — Can I file i485 and EAD? -> When you can work on 240 day rule, then I am sure you could apply I 485, ead, ap 2) after EAD is approved Is it ok to start working on EAD for same employer? -> Yes, on ead you can work for same employer. 3) if I switch to EAD then does it matters if H1b extension is finally denied -> I think it should not matter whether h1b extension is approved/denied as you already applied i 485 to adjust the status.
