I already have an EAD but waiting on actual GC from 8 years due to Non Availability of Visa Numbers

Default Query

Apologies if this has been asked multiple times...

I have an approved I-140 from my current employer under EB3. The same employer has filed a new application under EB2 and labor is currently in progress. Assuming the new labor application continues to be in pending status and this administrative fix comes in the next few weeks/ months, would I be able to apply for I-1485 with my old EB3/ approved I-140 application with the same employer?

Thanks.

Default Marriage

Hi Administrator,

Would appreciate if you could help me in this. I have an approved I-140. I will get married later. I wanted to know what is the impact of AOS adjustment discussed to cases like me.


If I file AOS, will it impact my wife to get AOS later? Or it is must for me to get married and only then file AOS. Will I miss the boat if for any reason I wait for my marriage and then try to file AOS jointly later? I am really confused whether I should get married right now or I can still get the benefits of job flexibility and later on get married.

Regards

We think that you can add your future wife (after you get married) to your pending I-485 petition. And if your AOS application gets approved, then you could file - Follow to Join. See here:

Bringing Children, Sons and Daughters to Live in the United States as Permanent Residents | USCIS

This is a case related question so we suggest that you ask your question to your attorney.

If your employer has not withdrawn your EB3 I-140 and your approved I-140 is still valid when you become eligible to file AOS, then you should be able to file AOS using your approved EB3 I-140.

For filing AOS you should be legally present in US and should not have never been out of status. If your current H1 status is valid and H1B extension is pending, then we think that you should be ok. Please consult your attorney because this is not a legal advice.

Default Intention of todays newsletter

Admin.. I understand .. Its not done, until its done and as an organization you cannot stick your neck out and say something will happen on "this" day.... So, not holding you responsible for the answer to this post ..

Is the reason for you to ask folks to get ready to file documents is because
  • you have enough insights into the actions on the Hill that this is a legit near term possibility?
  • Or your guess is as good as any others on whether it will happen or not but but it is better to be prepared
  • Or This is just as you have always done, helping out the community by providing valuable information, if and when it happens....

Thanks for your reply

Answers to such questions is a way to find more information which admin does not want to announce. The reason is the risk of jeopardizing the whole effort.

So we as a community need to decide if 'information' is more important or the 'fix'. Would you rather have information leak and delay or scrapping of fix because it was leaked?

Just my thoughts.
