Default 485 Case Transfer help !

I have a question about cases that gets transferred. Is it true that service centers will treat the new receipt date i.e. the date when case was transferred to them as the new processing order date order criteria? Below is the details and i would like to know if I am going in the right direction :

I filed my 485 at NSC in July 2007 fiasco time. I had few LUDs becasue of Address change or new G-28 forms but I never heard till August 2012 - when it said my case was transferred to TSC. I am current for nearly 1.5 months. Currently, TSC is processing April 2012 cases. I wonder if I am going to wait for few more months even after priority date is current.

The reason i have doubt is when I called customer service - the L2 Officer said that the case was transferred to TSC and althought priority date is current, it hasn't been touched by any IO and it will be processed in order it was received by the center. I also didn't get reply on service Request he put for case status details even after 15 days. Not sure if I need more patience or be agreesive and contact congressman etc.

any help/advice would be appreciated.

You should contact your congressman as there is no reason for USCIS to delay when you filed it 5 years ago!!! You should have been pre-adjudicated by now unless there were RFEs and the delay was on your part.

Thank you sunny for your reply. Based on your reply and many other older threads, I am planning to contact congressman in a couple of days. I haven't seen recent posts of delays and I also read couple of posts saying most EB3-India cases get approved within 30 days of priority date becoming current. Just incase if you know - Is it the case now a days with EB3-India with 2002 priority dates and pre-filed 485 cases like mine? In anycase, I appreciate your help.

There is no rule that case should be approved within 30 days of getting current. I have seen people being current for even more than a year and still not approved and some getting approved the day date is current. It depends on a lot of factors.
You seem to be wasting time tracking and counting LUDs. It would not help. Let USCIS do their work and be patient. I have said this many times in the past. But people forget as soon as they get current and expect greencard immediately.

While you wait, help others like you and behind you in the line by helping eliminate the backlog through advocacy efforts.

Thanks Pappu for your advice and I am trying to follow steps on your sticky post that outlines what to do for people whos priority date becomes current. I have been passive for years and haven't been tracking LUDs or timeline. However, If you saw my original posts, I wanted to know if I need to be pro-active or still have patience for my situation (I-485 -filed in July 2007, AILA saying most 2007 cases have been pre-adjundicated in some posts and my talk with L2 Offcer where he said my case hasn't been touched when i called) - not sure if you saw that but it is hard still have patience after 10 years and to not read how congressman inquiry has helped others but will have to I guess
