    GC Approved....Card Production?

    Hi Guys, (EB2-I; PD 11/2007; NSC; I-485 applied in April 2012 My I-485 case status was changed to "Card/Document Production" on 8/5. The status updated to "Decision" with notes saying - I have been registered as new permanent resident on 8/6. Any idea what does this mean? Why did the status change backwards.......? Thanks.....

    Petty Theft & I-485

    HI Belle - This is certainly confusing. I believe there are 2 different questions on 485 form. The first question (Q A) asks about moral turpitude, answer for which is NO. The second question asks (Q B) if you've "been arrested, cited, charged, indicted, convicted, fined, or impriosoned for breaking or violating any law or ordinance, excluding traffic violations?"......since I was fined for breaking village ordinance under false accusition of theft, should the answer to this question be YES? What are your thoughts on this? Thanks...

    Petty Theft & I-485

    Thanks Belle. Crystal clear on Question A. How about Question B? (Should answer be yes or NO)? Thanks.....

    Petty Theft & I-485

    Looks like my question was cut-off by moderator....I was trying to ask the following: The Part-3 of I-485 form has 2 questions: Have you ever, in or outside the United States: A. knowingly committed any crime of moral turpitude or a drug-related offense for which you have not been arrested? B. Been arrested, cited, charged, indicted, convicted, fined, or impriosoned for breaking or violating any law or ordinance, excluding traffic violations? Given my situation since I did not do the (falsely accused) theft knowingly, the answer to Question A would be NO. right? But since I was fined and given village Ordinance ticket ($100), would the answer to Question B be YES? Once again....Thanks for the help.

    Petty Theft & I-485

    Belle - Thanks for guidance. I was looking at Part-3 of I-485 form (uscis.gov/files/form/i-485.pdf) and it has 2 questions: A. Have you ever, in or outside the United States:knowingly committed any crime of moral turpitude or a drug-related offense for which you have not been arrested? B. Have you ever, in or outside the United States:knowingly committed any crime of moral turpitude or a drug-related offense for which you have not been arrested? Given my situation since I did not do the theft knowingly, the answer to Q A would be NO. right? But since I was fined and given village Ordinance ticket ($100), would the answer to Question B be YES? Once again....Thanks for the help.

    Petty Theft & I-485

    Great. Thanks Belle. I almost thought that since there's a village ordinance ticket, I need to report it as petty theft/crime of moral turpitude. I just wasn't sure if the answer should be Yes or No. At the same time I don't want to raise unnecessary questions with attorneys since my employer will get involved as a result. So if I answer NO, does "Petty offence exception" even come into picture? Why not? Thanks for the help......much appreciated.

    Petty Theft & I-485

    Gurus and Experts, I Have a question regarding filing I-485 and Petty Theft charges. I was falsely accused of petty theft in a IL departmental store few months ago. There was no arrest, no court date, no proceedings. I was just given a village ordinance ticket by a police officer, I paid $100 on spot. Later the department store sent me a bill for $150 for civil relief. I paid that as well. The entire incident was a misunderstanding, confusion and of course mistake on my part. I had bought 2 belts from the store and after going home they did not fit. So next day, I went in the store, put the belts back on shelf, picked correct size and walked out the store. I know that I took a shortcut while trying to save some time by not going to customer service on a different floor. The store did not accept my explanation even after I showed them the receipt and the whole issue got escalated. I am ashamed that I took a shortcut which I should not have. The entire episode has caused us many restless nights since. Now as of this month my PD is current and I am eligible to file 485. My lawyer sent me a questionnaire and that asks me following : "Have you ever, in or outside the United States:knowingly committed any crime of moral turpitude or a drug-related offense for which you have not been arrested?" I have no clue how to answer this. Of course I don;t want to lie....but at the same time I don't want to get in trouble with my employer if answer to above question is supposed to be NO in the first place. Any help/Guidance will be greatly appreciated. Thanks......

    New Position - Question about GC

    Thanks Belle. I would have never thought about 2nd option that you suggested. Appreciate your insights... Looks like option 1 is the safest path as long as cost isn't an issue. great... Just wondering if there's anything in the rule book that allows transfer of PERM/I-140 petitions by similarity of job function from old to new? Thanks,

  13. Hi Experts, Let me begin by saying that this forum has been tremendous help and moral support so far during my GC journey. Here I have always received help from experts when needed and I completely appreciate that. I have a question for the team... My PD is Nov 2007 and the labor was approved for a position that I'm currently in. Now an opportunity has come up and I am ready to accept a new role within my company. Since my PD is not current (EB2-I) I am contemplating at possibility of initiating GC process right from scratch for new role. My new role is not 100% same as my current one but there's certainly a overlap between old and new roles. Are there rules or guidelines that need to be followed before qualifying for new application? I am trying to figure out if I can live without filing new GC application. Thanks guys,
