Listing the events in the order they happened, as it might be helpful to others who are in the same/similar situation.
I-140 Approved with incorrect priority date. Year in priority date was mentioned as 2007 instead of 2004. I was not informed about this by my employer.
My employer fax'd and mailed the copy of I-140 approval, copy of Labor Certification and cover letter requesting to correct the priority date and send corrected approval notice.
As I haven't received 485 receipt, took infopass appointment to find 485 received & notice date. I also asked for Priority date, this is when I came to know that USCIS had incorrect priority date (year was mentioned as 2007 instead of 2004)
Since I didnot have I-140 approval with me, I asked employer about this and then the employer informed me that the priority date is incorrect and they have sent for correction in 03/2007 and they haven't received any response till date.
Called USCIS explaining the problem. The customer rep asked me to fax to TSC expedite service fax number (214-962-2632) requesting to correct the problem on approval notice. Note:
The number varies for each approval service center.
Requested employer to fax the same documents again, but I have asked them to fax it to service center's expedite service fax number.
There was no progress (no LUD's on I-140). Took infopass appointment after 2 weeks and convinced immigration officer to fax the documents to the expedite service fax number. The officer initially denied but later took the documents and fax number and said that he will send it. I am not sure whether he has sent to the same number I have given or to any other private number the district office has.
Immediate next day, I had LUD on my I-140 and after 5 days LUD on I-485
Two weeks from I-140 LUD, took infopass appointment and found that priority date has been corrected.
Now I-140 online status shows that approval notice has been mailed. My employer is yet to receive it.
My employer received the I-140 approval notice with the corrected priority date.
