EB2-NIW I-140 submitted no receipt notice on H1B now

Recommended Posts


I am an M.D (internal medicine resident) and I submitted an EB-2 NIW petition in November 2020. My petition package was delivered to USCIS on 11/16/2020 and I still have not received a receipt notice due "delays" at the Dallas lockbox. I am ready to file the I-485 AOS, but since I haven't received the notice for the I-140 I am still waiting. In the meantime, I still have H1B visa and my status will expire in June 2021. I believe I may have 2-3 months of recapture time to extend my H1B (my current employer is willing to extend it since I will taking an attending position with them). The question is, do you think I'm still on time to apply for EAD and receive it on time before the H1B extension expires if I submit EAD application no later than March 2021? 

Also, has anybody heard about any updates regarding the lockbox issuing receipt notices?
