Interfiling / Interlinking Process
I know that this has been addressed in this forum, but searching through 100s of threads is really not helping me much. If moderators feel, they can remove this thread. If not, requesting experts to help me out.
I am from India working for an employer who did my labor/i140 (eb3) and in July 2007 I filed i485.
I and my wife have been using EADs/APs since then.
Even before joining my employer I had qualifications and experience good enough for a EB2 filing, but because of unknown reasons, my employer had filed in EB3.
Recently they have started applying in EB2.
So they did my PERM and now I also have an approved i140 under EB2 (premium processing through Texas was used)
I received the eb2 based i140 today which has A# which matches the one on i485 receipt.
I want to interlink the new EB2 based i140 to the pending i485.
My priority date has been retained in the new i140 which is 25-aug-2004.
And as you already know, as of this month, my case should be considered as current.
Current Visa bulletin of Oct 2012 shows eb2 at 1-sep-2004, also Nov 2012 bulletin also shows eb2 still stuck at 1-sep-2004.
I feel that they should have instantly approved by i485 the very next day, but they dont appear to be doing anything at all.
I do know I need to be patient.
But I dont want to miss out on this excellent opportunity of dates being current.
How do I start this process?
Old eb3 i140 has one A#
i485 has a different A#
new eb2 i140 has same A# as on i485
i485s are pending at LIN
Wife's 485 too needs to be addressed and her i485 is pending at LIN too
Again I am sorry to have created this thread.
But hope it helps me as well as others!
You'll need to submit a formal, written interfiling request to Nebraska. Your new I-140 will need to be transferred to Nebraska from Texas, and consolidated with your pending I-485 there for it to be "upgraded" and processed as EB2. This is very much a paper-based process.
