I-485 has incorrect classification EB3_Porting from EB3 to EB2


Recommended Posts

I filed I-485 with I-140 receipt notice in Oct'14 when my I-140 case was pending. My case is porting EB3 to EB2. After 15 day I got I-140 Eb2 approval and receipt notice of I-485. On I-485, everything is fine only Classification is wrong- it's eb3 not eb2. 

I spoke to my attorney, he sent new I-140 and also raised service request to make correction in I-485 a month ago. No response from uscis so I called them and customer service read update on my case that " refer to your I-140 for classification. we will not send new receipt as it serve no purpose" ...i don't remember exact phrase. 

I worried how its going to affect when PD will be current(Aug 2008)? Should I take infopass appointment and go to local visa office to make sure there will not any issue? 

FYI.....I got my EAD and AP last week. 

Please help.

Thanks for your response, Ashuneel.


Priority date printed on I-485 is corrected and retained my earlier priority date(aug 2008). Only issue with classification, instead of EB2 it's EB3.


I am going to file I-485 for my wife as a derivative whenever date is current and  i am concerned when i am going to send a copy of my I-485 receipt notice with her document, how is that going to affect her application?


I took infopass appointment but not sure how it will help.
