You will have to go through the usual ritual (posted last time).

Basically copy the url. Close all browser windows. Open a new one. Post (or type) the address on the address bar.

What does the processing Dates mean.

Does it mean all the 485 applications submitted until Aug 10th 2007 are processed,Name Check completed and waiting for assigning Visa Number if no RFE?

Does it mean, if we did not get any RFE , we can expect 485 approval and GC if our application is picked?

I know assigning Visa Numbers depends on number of Visas available

Just wanted to know if my understanding is right with respect to Processing.

My PD is March 2006 and RD is July 12th 2007

somebody said that USCIS work on Notice Date but not Receipt Date..
In this case it will be too much..

My ND is 26th Sept 2007..

So near and so far..
That's GC!

My understanding is, they r still processing applications received on or b4 Aug 10, 2007. They might take up processing additional applications even b4 Aug 15th, when the next update happens. So, keep ur fingers crossed, u will go current (on the Processing time sheet) on Aug 15th :D.

But on a serious note, how reliable is this info? Are they really processing applications received on or b4 those dates or is it just fake? I've not seen any LUD on my 485 yet...So.......whats the deal?

From my understanding of what it said on the "processing dates" website, it meant all the 485 applications submitted before Aug 10th 2007 are processed. But we all know USCIS has credibility problem, so you should take it with a lot of doubt.

If your RD (or ND) is earlier than the published processing date for a month and you get no update, then you can call USCIS. This is really the only significance of the published processing date.

I don't know whether these dates are correct. Because i don't see any LUD yet on my case even though the processing dates were crossed my RD a month ago.

Second reason is, when i contacted the USCIS yesterday, they said they were processing the cases received as of APRIL 2006 and not JULY/AUGUST 2007.

I don't see any LUD on my 485 case after 01/16/2008 (this was the date of FP).

Appreciate your clarification/comments please...

Having processed cases with RD or ND way ahead of (i.e. latter than) the published processing dates does not contradict the intended message. You need to find cases with RD or ND earlier than the published processing dates yet have not been processed to prove your point.

Published Dates are not decided first, and then cases picked based on if they fall within published dates. Dates are taken from the applications they have looked at, and decided upon (adjudecated or pre-adjudicated), on the publishing date.

Check on there are tons of cases in EB-2 with PDs before 2003 and RDs way before July, 2007 and still pending.
All i am saying is that they publish the processing dates but do not follow these strictly. My I-140 itself was approved in Jun, 2006 in 40 days even though my RD was ahead of processing dates at that time.

.. and

.. Priority Date before Jun 1, 2006 (please refer to discussion following http://immigrationvoice.org/forum/showthread.php?p=264661#post264661 also)

While there seems to be no hard and fast rules, possibility of getting GC soon for people meeting above conditions is very high.

As per new rule -- Name check is no longer an issue for I-485s which are pending for more than 180 days.
Is USCIS still holding cases because of namechecks (even for cases which are pending for more than 180 days)? Anybody has more info on this?

This is a deviation from what it has been usually published/stated. The notice date of July filers goes up to Oct/Nov.

It it is Notice Date, it is not a happy news for several Jul 2007 fisco EB2 filers.

By the way, any recent LUDs on I-145 with Receive Date between Aug 1 and Aug 10 of 2007.

it says, I quote, "The easiest way to monitor our processing time is on our website, where we post the filing dates of cases that we are now completing."


So the date is the filling date. Is filling date the same as RD or ND? need to google more.

Quick qn...Is it just before Aug 10th or on or before Aug 10?

Good Question and point of discussion.
The processing date of Jul 15 is Aug 10, 2007 (NSC). They might have been able to process some of the cases of Aug 10, 2007 on/before Jul 8, 2008. As we understand, there is no hard and fast rule and USCIS deviates significantly from published date (from case to case).

We have entered in discussion about whether RD or ND is used based on input from "SunnySurya". Basically my RD is Aug 2 and ND is Sep 17. If it is RD, my case is already included. If ND, it may be years away. I see no LUD.

today in new bulletin dated on July 15, 2008 shows that TSC is has processed cases till July 16, 2007


the dates can either move forward or stay as it is as per simple logic. But how can they can move it backward?

I know lot of July 2 2007 I-485 filers have different notice dates. My RD is 2 July but my ND is Aug 29 2007. My question is when does my Priority Date (12/2005) kick in?

How is the ND assigned? Do they consider PD before they assign ND?

There may be a case where some July filer who has ND before mine (Aug 29 2007) but their PD could be later than mine (12/2005). Who gets priority here?

I personally believe that we should not go by the processing times posted by USCIS. It is only useful if your case is outside the processing time and still not processed, we can call USCIS for expediting. If the case is inside the processing times, they wouldn't even respond properly.

In my case, My 485 was filed on Aug 7th 2007. The reciept had a notice date of Sep 17th 2007. I got RFE's on mine, my Wife and son's 485 in April 2008.

Going by this months Processing times at NSC, they should not even have looked at my application.

This is what is think.

The assignement of ND is only dependant to some extent on RD and other part is luck. ND is not at all dependant on PD with in the pile of applications that got current in a visa bulletin. They pick up cases purely based on ND and check to see if the PD on the case is current . If yes they will process it, otherwise drop it back on the pile and pick the next in the order of ND.

I think processing dates are related to processes of approving or adjucating. The finger printing, name check, RFEs are pre-approval processes.

My understanding of approving or adjucating process: all the information is in front of officer. Now decision to approve or not. I might be entirely wrong, but the way I interpret was fitting in USCIS working model.

07-17-2008, 06:07 PM
There is only one purpose for processing dates.

The "customer service agents" use the dates as a basis to drive away people calling the 1-800 number for case status updates.

Folks - the processing dates are mostly meaningless.
If your RD/ND is before the date, there is not guarantee they have processed your case. If it is after that date, it is still possible that they have processed your case.

immi_enthu
07-17-2008, 06:07 PM
Yes. Thats my understanding as well.

But then, lets say, next month, the processing dates in NSC move forward by a week (say till Aug 17th, 2007). Then, they will need to do the same excercise on all the applications that were dumped this month. How tedious is that? I feel its all computerised in USCIS. i.e all our applications are converted to soft copies and will be processed based on some date logic. But how realistic is that as well? To convert hundreds of thousands of applications to soft copies is no easy task.

Only God knows how USCIS works :D

My guess is they have sorting room like in a post office , only with huge sorting slots for each ND. They do have case data computerised but only very little about each case. I could only picture this based on the time they take to process cases, get statistics on the cases.

srkamath
07-17-2008, 06:11 PM
In a general sense the reason the TSC dates are stuck in mid-july07 is that, during july07 a lot of cases were transferred from NSC to TSC during mid-July to mid-August. They all have a special "receipt date" that is shown only online, another "receipt date" is shown on the actual paper receipt.
I'll bet USCIS will go by the later of the two dates - much to our dismay.

07/17/2008: USCIS Processing Times of July 15, 2008

As usual, this report is blinking back and forth (weird behavior) between June 15 and July 15 reports.

EB 485 processing times:

Nebraska Service Center: 08/10/2007 (It thus appears that July 2007 VB fiasco cases whose priority date will become available in August 2008 are likely to come into the processing queue.)

Texas Service Center: 07/16/2007 (Not much progress for July 2007 VB fiasco cases, but TSC is also likely to process those cases wtih PD of August VB in August 2008.)
What does this mean Texas Service Center?

Just because they are processing July16,2007 or August 10, 2007, it does nt mean they will start working on 485 applications which are not current. I know my friends whose dates have become current 60 days ago and their filing dates were June 2006, still they did nt get their green card and not even soft LUDs. When My I-140 was approved in 15 days (without premium processing) in February 2006, the processing times were showing August 2005. Therefore USCIS timeframes are very big joke and it is like a flight timetable to understand how much time we are delayed from scheduled time,

Excellent understanding of the current scenario. I suspect that this will be one month where we will see the Processing Times of the service centers go back. Since,the dates were not current, most of the applications sent last 2007 post July were not processed even though the Receipt Date of 485 fell into the "processing timeframe"
So,next month will be when USCIS will notice the difference and make the update to the processing times. But, this brings up the question you raised,how valid is the processing time if there are still applications from before which had not been processed because the Priority date was current.
This is only to keep an indicator of how backlogged the process is and we should all be appreciative of the fact that there is atleast some visibility into the system for now.

Rather than worry about updates, waiting till end of August would give everyone a lot more visibility into the system.

I spoke to IOs numerous times about PD and Receipt dates, they told me, " These all dates movements for only to file I485 and for CP candidates only".

May be few lucky people get GC's regardless of receipt dates if PDs are current.

Did you open a service request ? Did you contact your local senator/house rep ?

If you have tried those already . You can go for WOM. Did you read the successful WOM case where USCIS was asked to pay the attroney for the WOM time ?

Our senetors office specifically mentioned about April memo (180 day rule ) about Name check in their status request. They got response " Back ground check is different from Name check and contact them after 180 days if we not hear anything about this our case ".

Got second AP and planning to go on vacation in September. After coming back if my PD is current i will think about WOM.

Thanks for your suggestion :)

Did you read the successful WOM case where USCIS was asked to pay the attroney for the WOM time ? --- Yes i know.

Did you open a service request ? Did you contact your local senator/house rep ?

If you have tried those already . You can go for WOM. Did you read the successful WOM case where USCIS was asked to pay the attroney for the WOM time ?

--- Yes i know.

Now what is this background check? They dont run out of excuses , do they ? Did you find any memos/press notes/laws from USCIS/DOS about this so called " background check" ?

I hope you get your GC without WOM. But if they still want to kid around. Please make them pay. Good Luck!

Folks

I am quite confused with the number of Case Transfer Notices I have been getting. My case is apparently bouncing between NSC and National Benefits Center Missouri, for whatever reason. Every few days, I get a notice informing me of a transfer from one to the other. Of late, they have even stopped mentioning the new place of transfer. They just call it "a USCIS office".

I can see LUD of 07/17/2008 on my 485 case. I have read the mention of a soft LUD and am hoping someone will tell me what it is.

Anybody have a clue as to what might be happening with my case?

Thanks and best regards.

There is only one purpose for processing dates.

The "customer service agents" use the dates as a basis to drive away people calling the 1-800 number for case status updates.

Folks - the processing dates are mostly meaningless.
If your RD/ND is before the date, there is not guarantee they have processed your case. If it is after that date, it is still possible that they have processed your case.

More details please (PD,RD,ND,category,chargeability ,I-140 status etc) ?


Thank you for responding.
PD: Feb 02, 06
RD: Oct 11, 07
ND: Don't know what this is, sorry!
Category: EB2
Chargeability: India
I-140: Approved

Thanks and best regards.:confused:

Yes. Got it, thanks.

Wow!!!

Man...My notice shows a receipt date of Aug 10. Do they consider applications received on or before Aug 10th or only the ones received b4 Aug 10? I hope its the former :confused:

we are in the same boat. my receipt date is also august 10,2007 and the processing time for nebraska is august 10,2007 for I-485 applications. i just called nebraska service center and they informed me that i made it to their processing time of august 10,2007. so if yours was received on august 11, 2007 and later, then yours will not be processed as of now.
however, my question is, will they give out green cards to those persons who are within the processing times but the priority dates now under the visa bulletin shows that it is unavailable? thanks in advance to those who will give their thoughts.

the new visa bulletin applies on the 1st of August.
Until then the last one is in force- if you are current in the last bulletin then keep your fingers crossed- but don't hold your breath over USCIS :-)

The processing date is not misleading. We are itching around the processing date and trying one way or another to link our RD hoping that USCIS will start working on our case. It is clearly understoopd ‘As of JULY 15’ USCIS NSC service center is processing 8/10/2007 cases. As EB3 is unavailable in July and E2 is 2004-Jan, there are not much 485 cases to approve at this time. So they have advanced processing date to 8/10/2007. From Aug 1st USCIS will have numerous EB2 cases to approve (due to august visa bulletin) hence will move the date processing date back to 7/2/2008 (my best guess) on Aug 15th publication. No gimmick, very straight. Don’t entertain yourself with your deliberate confusion.

Yes. This whole "Processing Dates" thingy is very misleading. If the processing dates are for the timeframe June 15th - July 15th, then yes, as per this month's visa bulletin, they shudn't consider "processing" our applications. But, my guess is, on Aug 1st, they'd be revisiting that rack and do the same exercise again. So, between Aug 1st - Aug 15th, they MUST take our applications and if taken, shud process it and issue a card. Come Aug 15th, if the processing dates move f/w by say another week, even then ur chances r likely. But sometimes the dates move backwards too :). Dont ask me how and why. If that happens on Aug 15th release, and if they had not processed ur application between Aug 1 - Aug 15th (for reasons best known to them :)), then ur chances r unlikely.

Processing dates for 485 is confusing and misleading becoz of the visa number availability issue at the time of processing. But for other applications, it dozn't matter (like H1B, EAD, AP etc...)

So this raises another doubt. Now that they know that our 485 applications are current for next month, will they keep it aside in a separate shelf for processing in August,08?

I am one of the unfortunate ones who happens to be holding 04 PD but due to not filing 485 on 2nd Jul, stuck with the RD of Sept. 07

Good luck to people who have PD < Jun06 & RD < Aug 07 !

I hope come Aug bulletin, the processing dates will move further, but I highly doubt so.

Hello Guru's,

My case was filled initially at TSC and received the receipt on August 17 2007 which has my Receipt date as 07/23/2007 but later, on September 17 2007 my case was transferred to NSC and received the Transfer notice in December which says that my case has been transferred to speed up the process with receipt date as September 17 - 2007 (09/17/2007) on the transfer notice. Now i am wondering that when processing my case NSC would consider which date as my RD 07/23/2007 or 09/17/2008?
:confused::confused:

Guys:

My question is: With all our exposure to this system, why should USCIS offices needs to work on any 485 appln, OTHER THAN - EB2 I, C with PD< 06/01/06.

First of all what do they do, when they say "Processing", without PD being current. I am not that Knowledgeable.

What do they do, when they say "Processing". Do they Pre-Adjudicate ? or do they review and send any deficient Documents to be forwarded ?

Also, what is this confusion, RD-ND and Online Date, which one matters for USCIS to pick up the appln?

Thanks,

This explanation is one of the very few from ones who have really understood what Processing dates really mean in relation to when one can estimate their file will get picked up by an officer!

Seems like Calling USCIS is use less by looking at the other members post on their experience when they called CS (i never tried so far)..i think we can not expect any concret information from CS rep as they them-self do not know what's going on with USCIS.

Looks like everyone is concentrating on India, china when looking into processing dates. Don't forget that the dates are for all the people who applied 485 (ROW, India, China, Mexico, etc.) BTW, I don't think the centers pick the processing dates and then adjudicate 485s based on that. In fact, I think it's the other way round. They start adjudicating files and put the processing dates based on the adjudicated files...
