View Full Version : Strange I-140 status change after approval

03-20-2008, 08:45 PM
My I-140 case status has been changed today to

"This case has been received from the State Department with a request we review it."

My I-140 was already approved a year back and my I-485 is pending.

My I-140 was applied based on my own labor not labor sub.

Does anybody have clue about this?

My H-1B 3 year extension (based on approved I-140) is pending with USCIS. Do this has to do anything with this?

Thanks in advance.

During filing of I-140 companies/attorneys have to specify whether you will be going of CP or AOS. If it was denoted as CP and then you applied for AOS the underlying I-140 approval which was forwarded for CP will be sent back to USCIS for review/ processing. If you have your 140 approval please check to see if the approval denotes CP or AOS. I had exactly the same situation and this was the explanation given to me by my attorney. Made sense to me.

I got the same status in May. Haven't heard anything so far. Please post your experience and change in status.
