Default EAD is not a status

Just to clarify. EAD is not a status. AOS is a status (waiting for ajudstment of Status). H4 is not required. You can clarify with your attorney.

Just saw last night that Sen. Schumer Bill Amending H.R. 3012 Adding Irish Prov. Seems that is a very powerful lobby. Anyways, all we want is the Senate take up the HR3012

Thanks to IV for all the efforts ! Cheers !!

Hey..Thanks for that response. I did talk to my lawyer and she says I can send the docs from here via email and when I am back she asks me to get the medical done and then she will try and complete the process before Jan 31st. If the dates don't retrogress, it will work the best. Fingers crossed!

Filed AOS in Oct. No FP appointment yet. But received notification that 765 and 131 are approved and cards mailed.

not sure what is going on?..... everything is unpredictable and random lately

is FP required for 485 approval only? I was under impression that FP is required for EAD approval as well... I could be wrong... anyone?

Default FP required for I485 approval only

Fingerprints are required only for a background check and hence only for approval of I-485. EAD and AP if applied is issued immediately as USCIS won't hold you bakc from working and travelling in case your job requires.

EAD and AP should arrive in the mail and FP notice will be issued when you are up in the que and getting close to I-485 approval.

Yes. I heard the same thing before. If you applied for 485 for your wife, you don't need apply for H4 status, as AOS is a status as well. But she can not work until she gets her EAD.

Any way, Your attorney who filed your 485 should be able to answer this correctly.

My first EAD & AP got approved before I got FP done. This is back in 2007.

Default 485 Birth Certificate Original?

Hi guys,
Sorry to post this question here. Can someone answer my questions, my wife doesn't have birth certificate, so I am submitting a affidavit from her Mother & Father, do I have to send the original affidavit or can I send the copy? I am going to send the original, but just wanted to check with the gurus here first.

Thanks in advance.

Regards,
RK

Default HR3012 update

My pleasure!

If I come across anything new, I will of course put it up here...

I too am stuck in EB3-I backlog - no thanks to the old company lawyer - despite having 2 Masters from US Universities, she basically stuck me in EB3 and thereby screwed me over.

I hope things get resolved soon and HR3012 passes. Such as shame that 1 person can hold up a good thing, have such an adverse impact on innocent lives...
Let's keep praying and hoping for the best!

Have a nice weekend!

Default 485 notice will be mailed to me or attorney?

Hi All,

my 485 and other applications were recently filed by a big law firm and they have told me that these days the USCIS is sending the receipt notices directly to applicants, is that true?

Also can someone please tell me how long does it take to get the receipt notices from the USCIS?

thanks in advance.

Default HR 3012 Update

Hi ALL,

According to Oh Law Firm Website: The Oh Law Firm


Quote:
12/17/2011: The First Session of 112th Congress Close to Pulling Curtain Down

* This year marks the 1st Session of the 112th Congress. The second ssession will open next year, an election year. Both Houses have been busy to wrap up the pressing bills. One of the most pressing bills were Omnibus Appropriations bill for FY 2012. Yesterday, they passed this bill. For H.R. 3012, there were practically only two potential options to get through the Congress within year. One was to reach an agreement between the Republican Party and the Democratic Party and pass the bill in the form of unanimous consent without vote. The other practical option was to attach the bill to one of the most pressing bills before the session ends. It was Omnibus Appropriations bill. Apparently, the pro and con forces in the Congress failed to reach a workable compromise and none of the above two has taken place.
* It is so sad that many admirable immigration bills have been introduced to induce and retain foreign brains in one form or another but Congress has failed to pass any of them because of grid lock in the Congress. As this reporter brought up earlier, there are many pending bills that incorporate STEM at Master or Ph.D. level immigration as well as bills to eliminate EB numberical limits or recapture wasted EB visa numbers. None of them has been materialized. It is depressing.

Unquote.

Questions:
1. Does this mean the bills are dead now, or they would pick it up next year?
2. When does the senate return to session - i.e. what date?
3. Is anyone from IV or anyone else doing anything re this?

Thanks!

Johndoeme,

Please do not become discouraged by this news. If you read Oh's comments carefully, he only said that the senate is scheduled to adjourn. It does not take a rocket scientist to get that right - next week is Christmas!

Please rest assured that the bill is not dead. When the senate returns to session they will continue what they have started. Legislation doesn't work easily.

There are some thoughts that because 2012 is election year, there will be no laws passed. That is totally not true. If it were, then all the senators and HRs have nothing to do and should be relegated to election duty 100 % of the time. Laws are still made...probably not controversial ones, but ones with broad support (like HR 3012).

To answer your last question:

IV Core is working round the clock on this. They will revert with any actions that are relevant. Until then, keep working on current action items.

The news above has been posted on the other thread and several places. The bill is very much in process. Good luck to everyone. The date progression will continue in a positive way as long as the bill is around.
