FYI - While I was talking to CSR regarding my AP. There was discussion about processing times, she told me that the new processing times will be posted this Friday.

Don't worry about processing dates..

In a brief all centers will move 1 month forward and NSB with move 15 day forward....

The good thing regarding the processing date is we don't have retrogation..

Some tables (e.g., Nebraska, I-140 NIW) show retrogression of processing times. from 6 months to 15 months.

To answer Munna Bhai's question:

Visa bulletin:
This determines which priority dates USCIS may accept applications for (I485). It is also used to determine which applications by priority date USCIS may issue GC for.

Processing times:
https://egov.uscis.gov/cris/jsps/ptimes.jsp
Shows when you can expect that USCIS gets round to processing an application once they have received it. This is meant to be based on receipt date for that application. They may randomly process it sooner. They many complete processing later if there is a problem. Most applications with receipt dates stated in the processing times page should have completed most processing.

To get GC, visa bulletin date must be current, AND USCIS must have processed paperwork, AND there be no problems or outstanding RFE.

I sent in my I-140,I-485,EAD & AP applications to Nebraska Service Center which was the nodal agency to receive all I-140 applications during July -August 2007. They then would transfer some of the cases to TSC for processing. Due the visa bulletin fiasco, my applications were transferred to VSC for data entry and all my receipts have an EAC number. I received my EAD & AP and also a transfer notice informing that my I-485 was transferred to TSC as my job is in a state that comes under TSC's jurisdiction. But I did not hear anything about my I-140 being transferred to TSC. So we called up USCIS to check on it. We were informed that VSC would process my I-140 application and it was not necessary for it to be transferred to TSC unlike I-485.
My concern is VSC is taking for ever to process I-140's and currently are processing Apr 06 applications. I believe the dates have remained like that for a while now. Atleast TSC says clearly that they will process I-140 in 6 months, but VSC has no such processing times mentioned. Due to no fault of mine, my application ended up in VSC and is stuck there until some kind folks pick them for reviewing..which may take more than a year going by the current processing times. Is there anything I could do to have it transferred to TSC? Are there other members in the same situation? There is no likelihood of PPS starting anytime soon....what are my options to fix this problem? I thought under the new bi-specialization procedures only NSC & TSC processed I-140 applications...

How did you know your I-140 went to VSC?
I am curious because a lot of I-140's from my office (all filed in March 2007) are still pending approval with TSC. When we called USCIS for the status they asked us to call back after a couple of weeks (they need 30 days past the 6 months processing timeline). I am curious if these apps in fact got re-routed to some other service center. I hope they would send out a notification if they decided to do that!

BTW, to answer your question, I think there is no way out, except to wait for VSC processing timelines to show up! (I assume you are saying they are not showing a processing timeline for I-140's at VSC.)

Guys whoever planning to use EAD going forward get ready for $700- per head out of pocket every year. That is the cost of renewal for EAD & AP without attorney involvement. Add additional family members and you can understand why was July bulletin made current.

Lots of revenue at our expense .......

They posted it sometime back: But this does not talk about applications like II40 that were filed last year and still pending for some people in NSC. I140 for EB2 NIW is as late as August 01, 2006.

Advisory on Processing Times

In the past few months, USCIS has received a significant increase in the number of applications filed. As a result, processing times will likely become longer for applications filed after June 1, 2007.

USCIS is working hard to address the increased volume and will continue to provide additional information on application processing times as it becomes available. For more information, please see our Frequently Asked Questions on receipt delays.

For Nebraska:
https://egov.uscis.gov/cris/jsps/Processtimes.jsp?SeviceCenter=NSC

For Texas:
https://egov.uscis.gov/cris/jsps/Processtimes.jsp?SeviceCenter=TSC

Summary for I485:
Nebraska has processed most applications that it has had for 7 months (filed on or before April 14 2007).
Texas has processed most applications that it has had for 6 months.

Since 6 months is the target, Texas can be considered to be caught up, and Nebraska will likely have caught up next month.

For I485 that makes the visa bulletin the main issue.
