I am reading this at yahoo and getting scared
Pls advice


Your petition was approved by USCIS. They have to make the original adjudication and it is strictly a paper adjudication which simply confirms that you appear to be qualified for the visa. It's not a guarantee as you still need to be interviewed at an embassy overseas. Once the petition has been approved, it goes to the Kentucky Consular Center, which processes it and sends it on to the embassy in the country where you live. That's usually pretty fast. Then you need to be scheduled for an interview, where the final decision on your application is made, before your visa is issued, or not. Take a look at travel.state.gov for the US embassy website in your country for additional information as the precise steps may vary a bit from country to country.

Thumbs up Do Not Worry - This Is Perfectly Normal

Hi Neeraj,
(This reply is based on my experience)
Congratulations on getting your I140 approved. In summary, what this means is: Your I-140 is approved and as per the choice made by your attorney/company, the application has been sent to DOS for getting a visa number alloted.

When an attorney marks that this application will get CP done in the I-140 form, this is what will happen. Once I-140 is adjudicated, DOS allocates the visa number. By marking to get CP done in the I-140 application, the I-140 petition will be filed with a request for Consular Processing (CP) overseas. This enables employee to choose between CP abroad and adjustment of status (AOS) in the US at the time the application for green card is filed without having to submit any additional paperwork to USCIS to request a change. If the I140 notes AOS, and an employee later chooses to file CP, an additional form must be submitted to USCIS (Form I824) to request the change from AOS to CP which can cause delays in processing. By filing initially as CP, as noted above, an employee may choose either process with no additional paperwork and potential delay.

Coming to my case, as my signature indicates, my company filed my labor (PERM) in Aug 2006. I got the approval in Nov 2006. My company filed for I-140 in Nov 2006 last week and on Feb 2 2007 we upgraded the application to premium processing. On Feb 12 2007 we recieved an RFE about my name mismatch (between degree certificate and name in passport) . We replied to the RFE on Feb 15 2007 and on March 19 2007, I recieved an email from CRIS (case status system in USCIS) with the following words:
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Application Type: I140 , IMMIGRANT PETITION FOR ALIEN WORKER

Current Status: Case was shipped to the Department of State for visa processing.

On March 19, 2007, we shipped this approved or re-affirmed case to the Department of State for visa processing. For more information, please contact them directly.

If you have questions or concerns about your application or the case status results listed above, or if you have not received a decision from USCIS within the current processing time listed*, please contact USCIS Customer Service at (800) 375-5283.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
My attorney informed me that my I-140 is thru. Recently on July 20 I filed for my 485 with
this approved I-140.

My BEC labor was certified 4 days ago. My company is filing for my second I-140 next week and it is filing with the same option "Consular processing". Once it is approved, we will be "interfiling".

Hope this helps!

FWIW, my company ALWAYS selects CP during the I-140 just because it is easy to change from CP to AOS than from AOS to CP. But still, everyone ends up filing for AOS. I am not 100% sure on what forms are required to change from CP to AOS....I read somewhere that all you do is file I-485 and CP gets automatically cancelled...but I could be wrong on this.

In any case, if that's what has happened, and if what everyone on the forum is correct about your I-140 status reflecting he CP option, then supposedly there is a disconnect with USCIS. They probably don't know you have filed for I-485 so they should handle your GC as an AOS case; not CP.

But I am merely speculating.....

Good luck.

Thanks,
Jayant

You really ahve nothing to worry about, If you get a copy of I-140 application you will see the your company selected CP option. So USCIS sent thsi to the NVC for Cp.

But when they see that you files for AOS and as they enter your info in the system they will request for it to be sent back.

It is a fairly normal practice and some companies select CP by default.

You have nothing to worry about, just relax.

neerajkandhari,

I understand the state of your mind, but you really have to learn to relax. Instead of worrying yourself, wait till Monday and talk to your qualified lawyer. After reading other posts on other forums, I am now fairly confident that the reason for your I-140 status is what I wrote in my previous post (I 140 strange development).

If you are still jittery, then google "we shipped this approved or re-affirmed case" and you will get 7 hits. See if they are applicable. Then google "Case was shipped to the Department of State for visa processing" to get 193 hits. See if they are applicable. This should keep you busy until Sunday night.

Good luck.

Thanks,
Jayant

P.S.: Remember to post what you hear from your lawyer. It will help someone else who finds him/her-self in the same situation.

Before starting this thread i had done exactly what you have said (google search) what i read there was really worrying

Your petition was approved by USCIS. They have to make the original adjudication and it is strictly a paper adjudication which simply confirms that you appear to be qualified for the visa. It's not a guarantee as you still need to be interviewed at an embassy overseas. Once the petition has been approved, it goes to the Kentucky Consular Center, which processes it and sends it on to the embassy in the country where you live. That's usually pretty fast. Then you need to be scheduled for an interview, where the final decision on your application is made, before your visa is issued, or not. Take a look at travel.state.gov for the US embassy website in your country for additional information as the precise steps may vary a bit from country to country

So I started this thread
Will post on Monday when i hear from my attorney

It means that your I-140 was approved. By default, cases which did not have Priority Date current at the time of filing are forwarded to National Visa Center (NVC) for consular processing, however since you are applying for the green card in the US, it does not apply for you. Once your I-485 receipt is issued, we will advise NVC accordingly.
