Default Photo Specs

Hi All-
Any ideas where can I get the latest specs for the individual photos (I485 filing purpose). I searched the web but couldn't find a USCIS document. I heard they no longer accept the 75 degree looking face.

Thanks in advance.

Shouldn't the photographer know about it? I get my passport size photos taken at costco. I think they make sure that photographs adhere to the standard.

Well, bad news for those looking for labor substitution. But I believe you can still file I-140 with premium processing if you have your own labor.

If I were you and my priority dates were current, I would go for 1 above [get H-4 stamped ASAP and enter in US and apply for I-485].

Default Medical test

For those who are wondering about medical exam for pregant spouse. I had medical exam done for my wife (and we are expecting). Doctor decided to take Blood and TB skin test. He also decided to do blood partision exam (which will tell whether you have particular immunization done or not as a child) since we didn't have immunization record. It costed $400 (includes lab fees etc) in IL. He wanted us to come back after 2 days for TB result and after one week for blood test result.

Default Processign Time for I485 application

Folks,
Quick question on 485 processing times (I know a lot of folks have been waiting for couple of years for their processing to complete)

I checked on the USCIS website, they show that Texas and Nebraska are processing Sep/Oct 2006 cases. How can one gauge a typical processing time at USCIS for 485 applications? Any clues?

The 485 and EAD requires total 4 identical photos of each person. I enquired at Walgreens, but their passport photo package contains only 2 photos. Any idea how to get 4 identical photos of the same person? Moreover, the photos must be 2 inch X 2 inch. How to get photos of that size?

Any help is really appreciated.

Default 485 Filing

My PD is current. I have opted for CP when my I-140 was filed. Can I file 485 now?. Do I need to file any papers with NVC/CIS to transfer from CP to 485?.

Thanks for your tile

Question USCIS Procedures

I am curious to know what USCIS actually does when they adjudicate adjustment of status cases. I know a security/name check is done when they have your fingerprints but what else? Do they use your social security number to look at your credit history or do they contact the IRS for transcripts of your tax returns etc, how do they verify information on your employer etc etc? Does anyone know what procedures/actions USCIS takes when adjudicating cases? Thanks...

I am in a similar situation. I applied just 95 days before. My lawyer "forgot" and I applied in a rush in the end. I am hoping it will not be a problem.
My understanding is that you will remain in status even if you do not have EAD or AP. However you cannot work.
I have a meeting with my lawyer on wednesday. I will be asking her about this. I am hoping for peace of mind that this does not become an issue.

Default Avoid Walgreens.

I am twice bitten... by photos at Walgreens
Don't even think. I took PP for passport renewal. VEry bad quality.

Still I went to Walagreens and took PP for visit visa to Canada. Rejected by Canadian Consulate in Seattle. Don't waste your time and money.

In Denver / Aurora - there is H-Mart (or HAR Mart). I am also thinking of going to Costco. 6 photos for above age 14 ; else 4. That is what my attorney asked.
