So what is going to happen to EB3 I? Many are porting, there is huge demand destruction in EB3 world as well. Do you think USCIS will be motivated to move the cut off date for EB3I as well.

Sure, nobody expect EB3I dates to fly like it did for EB2I. But can we expect at least a few months of movement in the coming months?

The earlier thought was that anyone with EB3I PD of 2003 middle and beyond MUST port to EB2. Does that hold true in the changed circumstances?
The demand data is more of a technicality. It just shows the unsatisfied demand for which cap numbers cannot be allocated. USCIS is moving at a brisk pace but the supply is good thanks to the really low usage from EB2 ROW especially. The higher spillover itself in the range of 35-40K is actually going to be a bigger than the demand destruction. Demand destruction is definitely there as life without EAD / AP has been extremely hard for all post Jul 2007 folks.

My own thought has always been that the porting process takes a year so if you are more than a year away from GC its worth taking a shot. As of now anyone beyond 2002 is definitely a year away. Most EB3-I folks from 2002 are holding really tight to their seats.

EB3-I moved by just a week it means the people in that range are holding really tight to their seats. Now overall EB3 inventory has not reduced much so means porting is still within 3K. Most people porting are the ones with later PD's mostly 2004 onwards or beyond 2007 who did not file 485 and cannot be accounted for. Retrogression will happen when USCIS approval rates pick up further for now it looks like demand and supply match.

Just like many of us here, i spent some time looking at the PD movement, since the last time there was a retrogression for EB2I. That was in Jun'2009 bulletin.

It appears that May'2010 will be static for at least few months based on the historical data. Most of this is not news to all the experts here.. but i just thought i will share this information. Experts, feel free to add your comments or inferences.
Thanks,
Very nicely presented. We are all ordinary people here with the sole objective of helping each other with simple things.

Waiting hopefully soon. Read in a thread yesterday, that 1 week after RFE response, but i am in my third week. Waiting for that magical SMS / email.
May God bless all the folks in their arduous wait.
All the best to ALL and especially to Teddy.
Folks
When would it be time to start contacting lawmakers etc. Should i wait the 60 days mentioned in the RFE response received message? What are your experiences, While i patiently wait, this thread and forum has been great help. Keep up the good work IV. TIA

Default Looks like 485s are not being processed in the order of PDs

Hi All,
This is just to share my observation but nothing else.
My PD - Dec 07
485 Filed - 22 Dec 12 (TSC)
FP Attended - 23 Jan 12
EAD/AP received - 15 Feb 12

My 485 receipt number does not even show up in the case status application online. USCIS says, there is a bug in the system.

I see people who applied after me and with PD dates months after me getting Cards. Wish, my application moves and be greened sooner.

Regards,
Vijay.

welcome to the world of USCIS! ... Glad you finally figured out that they are not processing by PD

I am with Jun 07 PD and still waiting patiently (Day 136 since AOS filed and 1700+ days since labor filed).... and have seen Dec filers and now Jan filers getting greened (with much later 2008 PD).... nothing against them or personal but I can understand your frustration. The only positive I take from this movement/approval is that atleast they are working on the files and fellow people are greened

Dont even have a RFE yet (not that I'm rooting for one but RFE atleast suggests that somebody is looking into your case).... oh well... same old saga with USCIS, no surprises there

Hi vkonam,

I just wanted to share my information as well since our dates are very close to each other:

1. PD - Dec 07
2. I-485 - 20 Dec 2011 (TSC)
3. FP - 26 Jan 2012
4. EAD/AP - 09 Feb 2012

Eagerly awaiting 485 approval notice & physical card. Will update as soon as I hear something and request you to do the same. Thanks!

Good luck!
SVS

Default With you buddy ....

Still waiting while the bulletin moves week by week ..... every Month by Month. I am just hoping June / July may get us there for 2002, but not completely positive yet. I think for sure in October we may get there.

Guys by Sep 2012 the dates might just reach somewhere in Nov 2012, EB3-I is moving far slower than last year simply because none of the 2002 filers are porting. Now Dec is pretty huge so the dates will simply crawl when they hit Dec, i would envisage for Dec to be cleared will take entire Q1 of FY 2013 i.e. by Dec 2012.

TSC is taking 3 weeks for RFE response cases now because of the huge volume. Considering that you are kind of due. Reading a thread on another site where people share the officer # my officer is a working on cases a week before so looks like another week for me.
