Very disappointing..But we cannot do much about the processing delays.

Perhaps that means the oldest case they are working on...Otherwise from Dec 2007 to Jan 2007 how will processing retrogress? Doesnt seem to be logical. But hey we are talking about CIS. Nothing is impossible.

Default Not just DEC... Partly Jan...

The disappointment is not because in DEC 07 they were doing Apr 07 and now they are doing Jan 07 in Jan 08... The fact is it was Apr 23rd even for last 3 days in January and now they "rolled back" to Jan 22nd...

Which means they bluffed right from DEC about NSC EB3-140 !! This is not retrogression , this is fooling and playing with other peoples life and career in a irresponsible manner....

I am expecting something similar coming for I-485 processing dates.
I was surprised to see that they have finished processing July 19 2007 applications.

Default Devastating to many!!!

Yes this is devastating to many. think about the people which come in the time frame of Jan 2007 - April 2007 , who must be anticipating the adjudication of their I-140's pretty soon

All I can tell you is JOIN THE GANG.. last month when they (USCIS ) initially published on Dec 14th, 2007 processing dates for TSC (140-Skilled worker or professional) it was still showing "6 month's and when checked back on Dec 19th, 2007 (just 4 days after) they silently moved dates back to June 18th 2007..the catch here is useless website still showed last updated time stamp as "Dec 14th, 2007"..

USCIS is capable of doing anything.. I am sure their motto must be "we work in backward direction" (now that's what I call perfect example of useless service means...)

We should complain about USCIS misleading updates. If they publish something, it should be true otherwise they should not publish any dates.

Probably they are trying to fool Ombudsman and us. We already know that customer service center of USCIS is a joke.

This happened last night or this morning...I am waiting on my AP to travel abroad and the date was Oct 17 last evening and this morning it is Aug 15. I even called them up day before yesterday to open a service ticket and they told me to call after 9 days as they cannot open the ticket 30 days after the published date.

Screwed.

Default dont take that literally

It's "probably" the oldest case date that they are working on (if there are pending cases older than that, it means they are not working on them :-( )

Nebraska EB2-140 is Apr 23 but mine was filed in first week of July 2007 and got approved recently. This fact, in my opinion, implies that those dates are not to be followed literally. There are people with very new filing dates, which are approved. And there are people with very old date, whose case is still in limbo.

Whatever the case may be, USCIS is really screwing people. By putting an old date they can save themselves if someone complains that their 140 is pending beyond the current processing time.

Default to avoid open Service requests it seems.

one of my friend applied his I-140 on july 2nd in texas center and he got approval in Dec ending itself. but the dates are showing june 21. so we need not worry much about to this. the reason behind the retrogation is to avoid open Service requests it seems.

Atleast in NSC, it appears that the approvals are mostly random. I know a few friends of mine who are waiting with their Dec 06 receipt dates. And then I hear Jan and Feb 07 applications getting approved.

This kind of approval prevents us making any intelligent guesses on approvals. Screws up AC21 plans for those who want to make a move.

Default LUD on 140

Hey guys,

I noticed a soft LUD on my 140 which is pending from NSC,the notice date in 05/01/2007..but the processing dates shows that they are processing April 23/2007..any idea what the LUD is for? I think there is some error in publishing the processing dates.
