Date current; 485 applied, have EAD+AP; next steps ?

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone

Appreciate if anyone has experience or answers for the following:

Current state:

EB2 India Date (Aug 2009) got current in Oct 2020 visa bulletin. 485 has been applied (when date was current for short time several years ago) and have EAD and AP from several years and also medical test is up to date.

Questions:

- Is Interview a new step added ? and does it apply for even applications which are from 2009 ?

- Any next steps to do ? or just wait for any correspondence from USCIS ?

Thanks

No steps to take, as far as i know we just need to wait for case to be updated. Interview for older 485 applicants is random for only selective cases.

i am curious though, what month and year did you last submit your medicals?

my pd is july 2009 and i had rfes in 2014 and 2018 august to redo medicals. Technically my medical will have expired by the time the pd becomes current on oct 1st.

Thanks everyone for the answers and comments. 

I checked the last RFE date for medical records, it was July 2018. So I must have submitted in August 2018. So technically now its just more than 2 years. 

But I have submitted medical records and tests at least 3 times since the 485 was originally applied. 

Thanks

So I checked in detail and the last RFE which required medical record update (I-693) was in July 2018, but the deadline to submit the response was Oct 20, 2018 🙂 

Also, when I checked the RFE letter, the language says "as of June 1, 2014, Form I-693, report of medical examination and vaccination record, will loose its validity ONE year after having submitted to USCIS". 

So I am not sure if this will result in another RFE for update of medical records. 

Also, is it typical to also see an RFE to check current employer and current employment status. It was part of the same previous RFE which was responded to and luckily there is no employment change since then.

Thanks

I have similar question, my 485 was filed in 2012 also, and since then I have not received any communication other than case received and PD retrogressed and not current (EB2 Feb 10). 

I have not received any Medical RFE also. 

What are the next steps to expect and any chances it could become current again and we can finally get GC ?

Did you not apply for EAD and AP at that time ? And surprising that you never received any request to update medical records. If you moved address, did you update the address ? You can call and check if they have the correct address on file. Good idea to do anyways. I was advised to do that and I did it few months ago.

We had applied for EAD/AP and it was approved and have been renewing since 2012 ... I think 4-5 times now :) ... no idea what to expect next ... no change in employer or Location ...

What are the chances of Feb 2010 being current as final action date? And please people who have received their GC ... can you please share how long it took to get GC after the PD became current?

Cant answer the prediction qn. There are some online predictor calculators you can try, and read about various blogs and videos on possible movements. 

About your 2nd qn. My PD just became current in this Oct 2020 bulletin, and I have not received any change in status or any RFE or any communication yet. 

But when I read some of this forum discussion, one person had his PD current in Aug 2020 bulletin, got a medical test RFE, responded and he had his card in hand by mid September. So roughly a month and half in his case including the Medical RFE response.
