Have hope bro (or Sis). I hope your attorney is right with all my heart. I am only few months ahead of you.

The March VB was published.
If my PD (aug 2004) is current for EB3 Row-other countries, my question is: when can I file my I-485? The 31st March is the last day?
thanks.

ps- this is my first message on this forum ;

File it in the month of March. DO NOT file it till the 1st of March. Also do not wait till the last moment (31st of March).

We 'll not wait until the last day of march 'cause we are waiting 4 this moment for months when all our papers were ready but our PD was not current.

All the papers are now in our layer possession except the cheques for the USCIS fees. Is it Ok to send him the cheques today ? He will keep them till he mails our papers?

Thanks U all for any advice.

Yes, there's nothing wrong with sending the cheques early to the lawyer. Main thing is to NOT send the application before March.

Hi,
Is there anybody who has PD urrent in March for EB3 ROW and files I-485 for GC through employment?
Hope I'm not the only one. Wish we could share experiences and thoughts.

According to first post in following thread ,

http://immigration-information.com/f...ead.php?t=4285

attorney Ron Gotcher says ( he got info ),

"
Last night, at a meeting of the American Immigration Lawyer's Assocation Southern California chapter, Charles Oppenheim spoke. Mr. Oppenheim is the officer within the Visa Office tasked with calculating visa bulletin cutoff dates each month. He offered the following thoughts as to cutoff date movement in the upcoming months:

* In April, India and China EB2 will be set at 12/01/2003
* EB3 for India and China will slow down for the rest of the fiscal year"

Can some one enlighten me on this? I wonder how the latest visa bulletin date movements for EB3 ROW and EB3 India (3 months) help if the service center's processing dates are still in June 2007. Say, if one's PD is 30 MAY 01 EB3 India and 485 was applied in July/Aug 2007 time frame is USCIS going to look at approving their 485 in the month of March 2008 when the date is current?

it will not? your PD and RD both has be current(some exception is always there). PD based on VB and RD based on processing date. Moving processing date is more pradictible compare to VB.

Yes. But I seriously doubt that it will move back. It might move on slowly or stop at Jan 05 for a while. When is your PD?
