Default Future Prediction - I485 availability

Congrats to all those who are lucky enough to file their I-485 by August 17. I am kind of on the unlucky side. My mandatory labor recruitment wait period of 30 days end on August 17. Wonder if anyone has any idea about I-485 availability or unavailability by september or october or may even next time this year to use up the available numbers.

I appreciate all your responses.

Thanks

Default Applied LCP in July 2007

Applied for LCP in July 2007 and I am not sure if I can apply for I-140/485 if my labor is approved before 17 August 2007. My PD is July 2007 but my labor might get approved in August.

Any Guess????

Where did your labor application go...If Atlanta...then forget about it, If Chicago, start getting all the paperwork like BC & Medical ready as you will most likely get your approval in a week or two (I got mine in 2 days)

Only those whose labor got approved prior to July can apply for 140/485. August Bulletin says "U" for all categories

It is hard to predict when the numbers will be available again in the future. They may open up for EB1 and for other countires except India, China, Phillipphines and Mexico.

You mean labor approved in July or Labor filed in July and approved before August 17. I understand that Priority date of July means that you must have filed the LCP in July.

Default Sorry off topic but needs everybody's immediate attention.

Lately the members of IV have come to know that Aman Kapoor, the co-founder of IV has sold his house and spent around $64000/- towards the administrative costs of IV. This too was brought to our attention from a regular member like you and me, without which this would not have come to our knowledge at all.

So some of the members have taken an initiative to reimburse Aman and other core IV team members with the expenses they have incurred so far towards the administrative costs of IV. Note that the time they have spent and the sufferings cannot be compensated. Let us do the least by atleast compensating the money. Please do not donate directly to IV funds.

There is a funding drive in this other thread towards reimbursing the administrative costs of IV.

Could you please pledge an amount ?

Question Filed for labor in July 2007

I applied for my labor in July (Chicago) and my PD is July 2007. If I get approved before August 17 then will I be able to apply for I140/485 before August 17th.

Default I think there will be no availability of 485 for atleast next 10 years may be more

From the website http://www.immigration-law.com/Canada.html we can see that there are only 140000 GCs are given for employment. Also as per the current prediction on the same page shows that there will be 750000 new applications will be added in to system because of this recent events. Now follwing are some facts what I can see from these details:

1. As only 140000 visas can be givens per year. USCIS OR DOS can not cross this limit.
2. There is also per country limit. (I don't know what is the exact % for per country - think 10 -20 %)
3. If you count 20 % then for India the figure per year is 28000.
4 Now imagine how many years it will take to cover up the number like 750000.

My analysis:
-Based on these details you can predict that there is going to be more than 10 years to clear this thing. (except some new law passes).
- Some may get GC after 10 years of filing A485.
- For atleast 10 years PD remains Unavailable.

What do you say on this?

I agree but, I am certain that a law will get passed at some point to give us relief, especially given all the noise that we have made (and which we should continue to make). I just cannot imagine that they wouldn't pass any relief. And if the latter is the case, it will be slavery and hell on earth, right here in the Land of the Free.

Current per country limit is 7% (9800 for all EB categories).

Thumbs up

May be we should gather momentum, and ask ImmigrationVoice to start working to address the issue of past backlogs as well as future backlogs too. Moderators, please make a note of this thread and direct us on path forward. May be another flower revolution; or may be we should send pens saying "Change the immigration law and make US a beacon of freedom". This will decide the fate of millions of people in US waiting for their GC approval.

All directions from Immigrationvoice would be appreciated.

Thanks again for your response and keep on sending more responses.

EB2 or EB3? If EB2 then based on data someone posted here earlier, there is a good chance of you becoming current in the next 12-18 months.

If you plan to get married in the next few months, you can still go ahead and apply your I-485.

the dates are goign to retrogress again in October. so if you get married before your date becomes current again, you can file the I-485 for your spouse on the very first day it becomes current and before your I-485 approval
