Default Verify EB2 I-140 interfiling with pending I-485 successful

Hi-

EB3 priority date is March 2005 with pending I-485 filed in 2007.

After EB2 Perm approval, EB2 I-140 was filed with an interfiling request to port the EB3 priority date and also to link the pending I-485 with the new EB2 I-140.

In Oct 2012, EB2 I-140 was approved and I-140 interfiling request successful (I-140 shows older priority date).

I was expecting a LUD change on my pending I-485 to indicate that it has been linked to the newer EB2 I-140. It's been three months and I haven't seen any updates.

Is there a way to verify that my pending I-485 has been updated with the new EB2 I-140.

Thanks

Call USCIS customer and try to reach an officer (The Customer Service Representatives are good for nothing just reading from USCIS website).

also I have a question for you, if interfiling request succeeds, do you still have to file a new I485 or the previous one itself suffices ?

Thanks bsbawa10 for the response. I will do that.

As far as I know, a beneficiary can have only one I-485 application. So the pending I-485 should suffice. After successful interfiling, when dates become current it should be picked up for processing.

Anyone with more expertise, please correct me if I am wrong.

Thanks

Default No need to file another 485

IF you already have 485 filed then you do not need to file new 485. During the porting process the existing pending 485 is linked to ones new I-140.
If you need to confirm that your 485 has been linked you can just send an email to USCIS with receipt numbers (I-140 & I-485).
I sent an email to ncscfollowup.nsc@dhs.gov since my 485 was filed at Nebraska and had received the following response.

Greetings,
All petitions and applications must be connected to your Alien file before adjudication of your I-485 can begin. This process has been completed. USCIS records indicate your applications are pending the availability of an employment based Visa. You are 2nd preference from India with a priority date of September 30, 2003. Currently there are no Visas available for this preference. Your applications will be processed when a Visa based on your classification becomes available. You are invited to visit the Department of State website, Welcome to Travel.State.Gov, where you can view a current bulletin regarding Employment Based Visas.


Sincere Regards,

USCIS Nebraska Service Center

Default Question about interfiling

Can I reach out to USCIS about interfiling status as soon as I have the new I-140 receipt number or should I wait until the I-140 is approved?

My company has filed a new I-140 and have requested to link to an existing pending I-485. The issue is they have not filed the I-140 as premium. Does this mean uscis will review my I-485 only are my new I-140 is approved? Any help is much appreciated

At the time of filing I-140 your attorney must have attached a copy of your I-485 receipt notice. Soon your I-140 is approved and older priority date is captured, USCIS system will automatically indicate a current date on I-485. At that time if USCIS does not have an interfiling letter, they will seek clarification sending an RFE. So its a good to hold until the I-140 is approved to see if the old date is retained.
