Even if your PD is 01-FEB-2003 there are 5700 cases ahead of you which would mean 2 full years, so porting is the way to go, normally everything should get done in 1 year’s time. For your wife you can file for her 485 as soon as your 140 gets approved, just in case your 485 gets approved I believe that you can still file for your wife after a couple of months but best to do it sooner.

I agree with Teddy. If you have the option, please port your priority date. For that matter, any EB3-I/C applicants should definitely consider porting to EB2.

hi TK,

I thought EB3 will be at 1 Jan 2004 and he should be current after HR3012. Would it take 2 yrs to reach 2003 for EB3 even after 3012?

This one is without 3012, the progression rate is @2800 per annum. HR 3012 can drastically change things.

Teddy based on current numbers/calculations when do you think october filers should have the GC in hand ? and what about yours (nov filers)? when do you think you will get your GC in hand?

Default CP or AOS

[Hi Teddy,

I admire you for your valuable inputs, knowledge and your will to help others

I have one question?

My priority date is Feb-2008, Hopefully it will be current by next 1~2 month. I-140 was filed with CP processing option. I have just received the email from NVC for fee payment

My question is should I continue CP processing route or change to OAS and apply for 485 as soon as priority date becomes current.

My understanding is with 485 filing, I can work permit for my wife also which will not happen with CP processing.

Since there is a good chance the PD will retrogress, I may not get actual green card fro another one year.

CP or OAS route both are probably going to take same time if the new law is passed in that case there will no be any retrogression.

Looking for your guidance

Default Not much

all EB3's, with PD post 2005 will have minor effect even if the bill passes. Eb3 Row has been around 2005 for a very long time even with the country quota. Try your level best to convince your company to sponser in EB2 and port the date.There is a good chance that EB2 may become current in 1 year if this bill passes.Ultimately, this is a good bill for everyone and everyone can benefit from porting to EB2

It is entirely CO's discretion how he would like to allocate numbers. Best case is 3 months and worst case is Jul - Sep 2012. In the October approvals the entire cap for I/C has been consumed, so now unless CO allocates more numbers early by quarterly spillover or other ways it will take time till May 2012 to set the ball rolling. All the best, mine has also been filed today finally. Next month is the key, if CO keeps allocating numbers then approvals will keep coming sooner. I believe all PWMB's who filed last month have had FP done so nothing left to do now its really for them to adjudicate the case.

GO for AOS without any second thoughts. This way you and family will get EAD and AP and that way you are completely safe.

Try porting without any second thoughts. The wait in EB3 is not worth it unless PD is in 2002.
