I got married last year and the lawyers were about to file the follow-to-join application for my wife in the next couple of days. But my application seems to have got approved first. Has anyone been in this situation before?

thanks!
If what I have heard is true, your lawyers made it late.

The Visa bulletin came out almost 4 weeks back. You should have hurried the application in. Check with your lawyer to see is there any special ways to get your app in.

What i will say is hurry it now at least.

Good luck buddy

VSC - This actually may not be a very good situation for you. Now that your 485 has been approved and you are a permanent resident - your wife's application will fall under the Family 2A GC category which has a wait time of somewhere around 18 months or so. Again this is my understanding of the law...I do hope for you that you don't have to wait that long...

I think you can still file the follow-to-join application after you get your greencard. You can do it only in the first 180 days after the approval.

Hi

yes, thats what my lawyer says as well ... under section 245 k which applies to employment based GC applications, we can file follow-to-join within 180 days. In the mean time h4 status gets nulled and we should not travel out of the country.

I believe that as soon as you file under section 245k, your spouse will be eligible for EAD, AP.

Also, I have heard that 245k is straightforward and will be granted quickly- meaning your spouse will be granted gc in a couple months.

its common to have delayed approvals for primary and spouse, i wont panic unless its 2-3 months more, however as someone stated you shoudl check with lawyer to expedite if has been delayed

i have seen cases of many folks where spouse got it first and then the primary and vice versa, thats why i called out.

Yes our profiles are very similar what with employer close out on our first applications

And yes I am very much a crotch rocket/rice burner Yamaha guy.

Let us wait for some more approvals and observe if the ND theory holds water.

my notice date is sep 26, 07. It's a mixed feeling...the wait has killed the enthu, but at the same time, I feel good that no more visa, AP, EAD extensions, and feel that I have wings of freedom to pick up a job i like, place i like, not bound by CIS rules regarding employment, etc...

Now I am no longer in that state because my project got over in NE. I am working in CA since 08 and filed 485 from CA .
Is there something that if I am in CA a different state from where I initially filed labor - it can cause RFE.
Quite honestly, I do not know the implications of filing 485 in CA when ur labor is from midwest. May be gurus in this forum might help you on this...

July fiasco is July 07 VB, where they made everything current and got swamped by the 485s. They initially withdrew the VB, but with pressure from all quarters including the prospect of lawsuits, they honored the initial VB so that everyone who could, was able to file 485..

Hi All,

Regarding my I-485 appln. status - I do vaguely remember seeing "Request for Evidence" status before. Currently I see "Request for Evidence Response Review". I see this status change although there are no LUDs.

Throw in your input Gurus !

Thanks
