I agree with you Almond. We have all been through tough times and been frustrated. My I-485 reached USCIS on July 2. I have reached the I-485 stage after 8 long years of waiting. I can totally understand bigtime007's frustration.
The next goal for IV would be to ramp up the fund drive and push for visa number recapture from past years. That would help alleviate the BEC fiasco.

Can we request admins to un"ban" bigtime007 ?

Now back to doing some real work. Almost the whole day has been spent on IV website.

Default What happens to CP cases now?

While today's development is great news for folks in the 485/AOS cue, what happens with people in CP? With the opening of the floodgates, I am unsure when visas will be available to CP cases who were scheduled for interviews in Aug and beyond. I am a great supporter of today's victory, but I am unsure where CP cases stand now? Another 4 year wait?

Thank you waiting4GC. That is excellent advice and I am going to follow it. Especially since I dont have a birth certificate and have to figure out what affidavits I need.
Good luck to you.

However if you do everything from now on, you will be able to file before August 17th. Especially your certificate of birth and affidavits of birth are VERY IMP and you need them. GET THEM RIGHT NOW.

Also since you are in BEC, I am assuming you priority date is 2004 or earlier. So you have a very good chance of becoming current in October. Your labors should be approved by then since BEC is supposed to be done in September. SO you medicals if not used right now, should come useful then.

Again, there is a risk of wasting a few hundred dollars on medical if your dates done become current for over a year, but the upside is too good to not take the chance. Just my opinion.

Default Hurry Up

Birth certificates are painful to obtain, do it asap. Fortunately for me I fall in Bombay consulate region so I HAD TO obtain it even to apply for H1 visa.

Good luck.

Agree, but this is still good news, not because of some immigration benefits we get, but it's a sign that USCIS could be attacked and the battle could be won. We are far from getting our GCs. It's my 8th year here, and I don't expect to get GC sooner than 3-4 years from now. I am June filer, so the July tornado will work against me. But I'm glad for July folks, because it's our little victory. It's a sign that "wanna be immigrants" do have power and we are able to achieve something.

Think positive...

I got mine in 3 weeks (including RFE). Why don't you do premium? Saving money? I'm not judging anybody and may not know the details, so people could have reasons... but still... - money is not a valid reason and "company doesn't want" - is not a valid reason either.

My heart goes out to you...if its any consolation, you would still end up getting the GC before most of us since you have an earlier PD. Hopefully you will have your labor cleared by sept. Good luck

The only relief is that you can choose your tormentor (read employer).

I am not trying to be cynical, but that's the hard truth.

Best wishes to those struck in BEC and also those who are going to be struck in EAD/AP quicksand.
What about this : Rotting in Phily BEC for 5 years to clear labor and then
rotting in FBI namecheck for another 3 - 4 years to clear I-485 ?

Are you sure, I asked this question on another forum and I was told that after you submit your I485 they're looking at your Receipt date and not your priority date anymore. I'm so confused now.

Here is what I think is going on. Formally they go by receipt date. If the whole system wasn't screwed up that much, then going by receipt date would be the same as going by PD.

But after asking people around, checking tracking web-sites, reading on forums I think they favor older PDs. As older PD as the waiting is less on average.

Although they sometimes approve recent cases, maybe it is up to officer or division.

fairboy,
Hey, don't attack me personally. You can read my reasoning and YES, many people DO HAVE victim mentality and don't use every opportunity they have. So, don't judge.

Sorry for the rest... peace?
Eccelent bestia; you are a good man. People are valued based on how they react when they make mistake/slip. You reacted nobbily.

I an really sorry for all the folks stuck in BEC. All the best for them.

Default from what I have gathered

Once the priority dates are current, they go by receipt date. If the dates are not current, they go by receipt date. Anyways, they can do anything but by and large most people get approved according to priority date.
