HI
I am in a very peculiar situation. I have been exploited twice by my previous employers who applied for my green card but ddid not let me know what the situatuion is. here is my situation

company A applied for my green card on Nov 1 2004. Labor got approved in Feb 2006. Applied for my I-140 in Feb 2006.

Changed company to Company B in May 2006.

Company B applied for labor in May 2006. I-140 from company A got approved in July 2006. (please note that this is I-140 from company A). The Labor for Company B got approved in october 2006. I-140 with company B applied in Nov 2006.

Changed company to Company C in Jan 2007.

Company C applied for labor in May 2007. Labor approved in May and I-140 applied in May 2007 itself. Now ironically I-140 for company B and Company C got approved on the same day.

I was totally amazed with 3 green card applications and did not know what to do and what my priority date was and so called USCIS and got transferred to the second level. From the conversation it looked like my labor priority is coming from Nov 2004 from my first application. Is this possible. Is there anyway that the USCIS people are trying to help me. The guy was literally telling me Nov 2004 was my priority date. Now should I be thrilled about it or is it just me and this is another stroke of their stupidity answering.

Can some gurus tell me how I can find my priority date. Please help me. I really want to know what my priority date is and wjhat my application category is . How can I find this information.

Thanks

afaik your date of first application is your pd. To recapture it, you need to have copy of approved i140 or atleast knowledge that it has been approved.

hi desi, even though i did not explicitly state that i want to port it, will it be automatically be ported. it seems like they see that first date as my priority date but i want to confirm it 10 times or more (due to the stuopidity of USCIS) before i jump in excitement.

kpchal2,
I think you might be aware that Priority date will be present on I-140 Approval Notice. In case if you donot have access to copies of I-140 approval notices, then you may try the following option, provided you atleast know the receipt numbers of the I-140 applications.

Take infopass appointment, and based on your I-140 receipt number, request the officer to let you know the priority date on I-140.

Thanks

It is interesting that you can find company names and sponsored people in this database. With job titles you can even guess who they are. I found mine, my job title being so specific.

Although employer owns I-140, it also relates to the person being sponsored. So, it should be possible to get a copy from Company A and B.

Does anyone know any other place to find the PD in case you have the Case Number?


The link mentioned below shows the PD for 2006 FY Data only :(
For 2007/2008 FY, I could not get the PDs from the below mentioned site.

You can also locate the priority date in the I-140 approval notice.

I cannot get the approved 140 notice from the employer, so trying to see if I can get it from somewhere else.

Hi,

My Labor was filed in 2001. There was no progress for a year and a half and I left to go back to India. No I140 filed.

I came back to US and my present employer will be reinitiating the process soon.

Is it possible to recapture the priority date from 2001 filing?

Thanks.
Swapnil

Priority date blank on My I-485 receipt but I-140 Approval receipt has PD shown.
Does everyone has same (PD blank on I485 receipt)?

My earlier I485 denied due to underline I140 denied. So don't know what will PD for me?

I have the PD shown on my 485 receipt and it is the same date as the one in I-140 approval.

Thanks. Interesting ... PD is blank on my I485 receipt...

Is this due to mass receipt in JUly-07 fiasco ? Does anyone think I should fix this blank PD issue with USCIS? Appreciate quick help here.
