Contributed $100 and calls to representatives
transaction ID for this payment is: 7JK80308NY475704P.

Thanks,
It will still take 4 years. After 2005 the smooth movement will stop even after the bill passes because EB3 ROW is stuck in Dec 2005. Porting is the way to go.

AFAIK nobody is feeding the anti's here. People are just asking simple questions and everyone is trying to help others. I saw some of the people whose posts have been deleted have been banned; I believe that is taking things too far when people were just expressing their opinion. Anyway lets all continue the good dialogue on this board.

Bro I saw your post yesterday and wanted to confirm my EB category though I was told it to be EB2 by my employer for the last 4 years. And found that it is EB3. Feel sorry for people like us who are cheated by employers and kept in the dark. People should ask for copy of the approved I-140 to confirm the EB category and not believe whatever the employer says.

Don't tell me the Job description was also hidden from you, it's straight forward to make out from that description..

Friends I would urge all to check their I140 approval notices. Most of us will have the following (if you are not NIW) if you are EB2. I can imagine the heartbreak.

You can ask your employer to start GC process allover again in EB2 category. I think labor are getting clear in 4 to 5 months time. And after labor gets clear, you can file your I140,I485, etc with interfiling potion.

If your employer is not ready to start your GC process in EB2 than I will strongly suggest you to change employer NOW.

Default Not a funny situation

I saw a couple of posts making fun of the people whose world was shaken after finding out that they are "not in Eb2 category". People question how can this happen or if they didn't read the job description..
It didn't happen to me but it happened to a close friend of mine but he was lucky that instead of Eb3 his application was done in Eb2 which is like a lucky lottery but the fact is he actually didn't know his category. Job description was never given to him because he just needed a job , any resumes was passed through people he knew(us).

I am mentioning this because when this paperwork is being done people don't realize the importance of the paperwork or may be just happy with to get a new job but it later dawns on them that GC is the key to be in the US. Sometimes it may not be even their fault. I am sure we all acted stupid at some point so when people are asking advise.. if you have something which helps them write back otherwise don't respond.

Default fatboysam

Fatboysam:
my job description was masters + 2 years and it got approved without any issues. But My I-140 was applied under EB3 because my attorney thought that was safe. Did not even bother asking me. I work for a really good company and they me a copy of I-140 without me asking them. I was also under the assumption that it was filed under EB2 untill I looked my I-140. So, don't assume by looking at your Job desciptiion.

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.
Hi Teddy,
First off thanks a bunch for all your posts, they are very valuable to the community.

I am EB2-I with a priority date of July 2007 and current as of Nov 1. My 485 was filed during the July 2007 fiasco concurrently with I-140, which was approved in 2008. I thought my wait for GC was finally over, but from your post, it sounds like the wait could continue on. Do you know how we'll be able to tell if the CO is using quarterly spillover? Not that I am complaining, particularly in light of the plight of our EB-3 brothers and sisters, whats a few more months of wait...

Would it be possible to guess when I can expect GC if quarterly spillover is used and if it isn't?

Good luck to everyone! At least one positive way to look at things is that this whole EB immigration fiasco has hit rock bottom and the only way left is upward...Hopefully through the efforts of IV and the community things will start to look up as they already are.

Your case is slightly different from PWMB cases who filed last month. On an average all cases will take 3 months to adjudicate. Now even PWMB cases filed last month may take another 2 months. Your case is adjudicated now itself.

We are at the mercy of spillover to make things move, looks like the entire cap of EB2 I/C appears to have been used up based on 6K approvals last month. You maybe lucky to get approved this month itself if numbers are available or allocated or may have to wait till start of Q4 in the worst case scenario in absence of quarterly spillover.
