I hope they look at these facts and dont bother sending an RFE or EVL and send me the straight approval ! (Fingers crossed and touch wood and whatever else !)
what is EVL ?

With the new rule on FBI name checks, a potential 47K with current PDs could get their GS's soon. I wonder how much of a shift we will see in the PD's from now, after the 47K is not taken into account. I would predict a minimum of atleast a year jump, or am I being optimistic.

Did you mean for EB3 ROW? One year? I am not so sure. Couple of months maybe...

Some one pointed out in another thread, that the USCIS FAQ mentioned that only a 'subset' of the potential 47k cases have namecheck pending for more than 180 days. So may be not all of the 47k cases (even those with current PDs) may be eligible to qualify under 180 day FBI namecheck auto approval rule. Thus not all 47k cases will be approved by the mid March deadline that USCIS mentioned.

Oh i wasn't being specific if ROW or India or china... just threw a year in there, since 47K seems like a lot of approvals at one go.

yeah i read that aswell... as usual even that little light that sometimes seems to shine... all of a sudden seems quite dim.

FYI USCIS retracted the FAQ posted on the 19th, so we will have to wait and see if it's gonna be any good news on this subject.

Default July 30 nebraska

The processing date for I -485 EB at nebraska is July 30 2007.

And it happens that my I-485 'Receipt date' is July 30 2007 too ! My notice date is 'Aug 31 2007'

So my question is should my case be logically eligible for processing at nebraska center now that we are in March and my PD is current for March. Or do the processing times at service centers represent notice date and not receipt date (I noticed that in my online case status it states "On August 31, 2007, we received this I485 APPLICATION "....which seems logical since the notice date represents the date when info is entered into computers )

As I mentioned earlier in this thread my I-140 is also already approved.

Is there a number I can call to check with USCIS customer service whether they opened my case for adjudicating it. The only immediate blocker I see now is whether or not I am past the 180 days FBI namecheck as well . Hopefully the USCIS cust rep can tell me that info over the phone. Any body got such info over the phone?
