Topic: Spouse Card Received.. Missing mine

Hello Folks,
I received my wife's Green Card today but not mine. As per USCIS status, they sent both our cards on same day but did not receive mine. Not sure where it got missed or delayed. Is this something to be worried?

Is there a way I can get the USPS tracking number or call USPS & check?

Yes, they accepted my application and I in fact received my EAD/AP. Can I be less worried?

Topic: Cross-Chargeability; Identify which country USCIS is using?

I'm in similar situation - I'm the primary applicant & I'm from India (w/ PD April 2011) & my wife belongs to ROW. My PD never came current.

We applied our I-485 this January and received the application notice. The notice does not say anything about my preference category. How to know that my application has been accepted under cross-country chargeability? Can someone help?

Topic: 6 years ending and filling GC labor with new employer

Answers that I know/experienced -

I understand I can retain the priority date which in my case even though, its of Feb-2013 but still I want to understand the issue of filling the labor 365 days in advance of 6 yrs expiration date?
>>> You can port your PD, there should not be any issue.

- Will this rule cause an issue for me?
>>> I guess you would have got 3 years extension when you transferred your H1B to your current employer. So, you are good until the expiration of that visa. You should be good if your employer starts your PERM by May 2015. You need to have approved PERM or 365 days pending PERM or I-140 approval for next times visa renewal.

- Does this mean that my new employer needs to file my labor and I-140 to the earliest before my initial 6yrs end?
>>> It is good to start at your earliest.

- Also, what if I have to leave US in emergency and visit India? I would require another stamping and if my GC is in WIP, I would not be able to travel.
>>> You anyways need visa stamping if you don't have your current employer's visa on your passport while you come back. If GC is in process you can travel using AP (not sure on this). And I'd say this is too early for you to think, your PERM & I-140 would take at least 9-11 months (if everything goes fine & you do your I140 in premium).

- Will there be any risk for me if my current employer starts my labor processing this year (6th year of initial 6 years of H1-B)?
>>> Nope...

- Also, will my wife be able to take advantage of the new H-4 employment rule since my I-140 is revoked/cancelled?
>>> Not sure, but you should see lots of such discussion on separate thread.

>>> ONLY risk that I see with your case is that... you can't change any employer until you get your PERM/I-140 approved, now you are stuck with one employer for a while.

And I-1485 and H1B extension are 2 different application process, no direct relation.

Topic: File i-140 and i-485 together

At time of I485, you can apply for EAD/AP which will allow you to work after H1B end date. (And your spouse can also work). The normal processing time for EAD is around 3-4 months. Additionally, you can retain your H1B status until you get you green card in hand.

It is always advisable to retain the status on visa (H1B). But there is a clause that USCIS will extend your H1B for just 1 year after you become I-485 applicant. Again consult with your attorney/company.

Af of current month (April 2015 Visa Bulletin), cut off date for EB3 SriLanka is Oct 2014. However on May 2015 your PD will be current. So you can apply I140/I485 together in May 2015. Pls. consult your attorney/immigration lawyer. And start preparing your applications.

Topic: EB3 to EB2 Porting + Using different charge-ability

Hello Folks,
I have a question - My first PD is April 2011 from my prev. employer. Later I moved to different employer where we processed my application under EB2 & applied I-485 this January 2015 under Rest of World category using my wife's country of birth.

My Question: Does my old PD help in someways or will it just go by the date received by USCIS? Cos I have seen some cases who had applied in Dec 2014 with old PDs (like mine) getting approvals in about ~110 days whereas rest gets approval in 180-200 days mark. Its a matter of 100 days but just want to understand the process little bit.

Topic: Missing Signature & Finger Print on EAD/AP Card

I received my EAD/AP card yesterday & this is my first card. I have 2 questions.

1. It does not have my signature (it says "Signature waived") however my spouse's card has her signature on it. Is it normal?
2. Both of our cards doesn't have finger printing image but we completed our bio-metrics while ago. Is it normal too?

Topic: EAD Tracker - January 2015

I do have exactly the same problem. EAD status says the card has been mailed but AP says the application received status. So I called the USCIS few minutes before and they asked me to wait for the card & check the message on the card. They don't have any more information on this case. All GC applicants are well trained for longer wait times. So few more days is not an issue to us.
