no-it is something else....attitude of positive expectancy... ;)

often times i have noticed that the blissfully ignorant GC applicants come better off than rest of us- who act like chicken with the head cut off after every bad news!!! may be they dont worry too much and look at it from a whole another perspective...who knows...i wish i could be one of those, but i am too far in the game...damage is already done...:D

What is your FP date?
 
Shimul 99,
When did you report for your biometrics (FP)? I'm also a 7/2 filer and my FP is scheduled for 11/3. Just wanted to see how fast an approval could be given after a FP. I hope more of us will get lucky like you.

Congrats buddy for your freedom from this hell. You mentioned that your I-140 approved in Sep 2007. When did you file your I-140?

:):):) One thing I surely belive and that is positive thinking.. Perhaps that may be chnaging the aura of not only that person but 485 filing and aura of USCIS officer as well.:)

finger printing
 
We(my husband,my two kids,and I) did finger printing on July 19,2007. Now My older son 13 years old got finger printing again. Why?, what does it mean.
I am scared

leo2606 10-24-2007 10:52 PM

Nothing to get scared I think
 
I don't think you need to get scared for this.
Eventhough USCIS center system accepts the finger prints, FBI system may reject for the quality of Finger print reason.In that case one can get another notice.I did read this some where in FBI or some immigration attorney's FAQs.If I re collect I will post the link.

thank you. Eventhough my son is 13 year old, when I told about it, he was worried about it.

You signature shows like

I-140 Applied Feb 8, 2007 (Approved Sep 18, 2007)
I-485 Applied Jun 29,2007...Received Receipt on July 31, 2007
Status - Pending


but how it is possible
I-140 Applied Feb 8, 2007 (Approved Sep 18, 2007).
currently 140 processing dates around Nov/dec-06.

Are you trying to play with people feelings?

jcrajput 10-25-2007 10:08 AM

I have one question: My I-485 applcation (employment based) was rejected due to I-130 attachment in error.

If USCIS reject my entire package of I-485 because I have attached I-130 application. What are my options? Is there any law that USCIS can only reject I-130 and accept I-485 appplications (myself and for my wife)? I have seperate fee checks for all the applications.

Please help me....

GC_ASP 10-25-2007 10:08 AM

Vkkkk,

Look at this thread...He got the RFE on I-140(NSC) in august and the I-140 approved in sept. You never know with USCIS..I know few guys who got lucky with their I-140s. i don't think he was planning to play with our feelings since septemebr...Do you?

I am sorry if you have answered this question before. Did you made a phone call to USCIS and tried to get update on your case from IO instead of relying on your Attorney ?

Shimul999 may not be trying to play or may be doing so, only Shimul999 knows. But there are legitimate observations such as below (Assuming s/he provided all information for his/her case correctly) can lead any person like VKKKK to believe that.

1) He is claiming labor filed in Feb 06 and he got approval in May 06 (As per
his signature). Now if his file is in BEC this would not have happened so it is
safe to assume that either he might have used substitution labor OR his file
is filed in PERM. Now Feb 06 was the initial stage of PERM and during that
period there were lot many software glitches in the PERM system so many
lawyers were almost hesitant to file under PERM. But assuming that his
lawyer took decision to file under PERM, end to end process was almost 4
months for PERM so either his file was reached before Feb 06 then only he
could have labor approval in May 06. So there is definately something
wrong there.

2) If my labor is approved in May 06 why would I wait to file I-140 till Feb 07
(His signature)?

Now 1st point, considering Shimul lucky even that time one can assume it might have happened. For second point one can assume any reason for that long wait so it is not necessary that by looking to these both points we can fairly say that s/he is not representing the fact. It can be a fact and in that case s/he deserves our congratulations.

sapota 10-25-2007 01:56 PM

Very likely
 
that such approvals would be due to visa number allocated to a persons case when the visa dates were current. or allocated to prevent visas from being unused in the FY 2007. It may be an unlikely that such approvals (without PD being current) will continue in the 1st 3 quarters of FY 2008. Also it would be very safe to issue EB GC visas to ROW applicants as most likely they wont hit per country limit.

PERM started from May 2005 and till April 2006 was having one or other software related glitches. So my previous comment make sense in that regards.

shimul99 10-25-2007 05:51 PM

I have nothing more to say guys. what some people are saying is logic and what i'm saying is the fact.

Anyway, My lawyer used the PERM. right after i received my Labor I had to renew my H1b which took 6 months (regular processing). After i received my renewal I sent my I-140 application. I didn't even bother to use the premium processing for my i140 because the i485 was not current that time, instead it way way back as a EB3. anyway, you know the rest of the story.....

wait, Franklin,

1. Did you get already your GC approved?

2. I think you DO need PD to be current for GC approval. In best case scenario, GC could be approved in matter of 10-15 days, so for July filers there were some GC numbers available, and few lucky ones got their approvals. This is how I see it... please correct me if I'm wrong.

3. It would be interesting if shimul99 would share with us as when exactly his status was adjudicated. I've read somewhere that there are cases, that people got their GCs approved by mistake and lawyers suggested to inform CIS and return the GC. These people were then having their statuses adjudicated when their PDs were becoming current.

Yep, that makes sense. Now only puzzle remained is USCIS approved your case during 10/19-20/07 and EB3-ROW is not current but hey it is USCIS.Anyway, buddy, Congrats and please keep us visiting.:)

I think there was one case that I saw at Murthy web site where the guy went backhome and got married. Came back and found that his green card was approved while he was in his home country and before the wedding took place. Interesting part was that his PD was not current at that time. Because of the situation, he couldn't bring in his wife in H4 anymore.

The lawyer recommended him to return his GC as it was mistakenly issued by USCIS. Lawyer had to deal with USCIS and returned the GC.

ramaonline 10-26-2007 01:12 AM

According to the regulations, USCIS errors cannot be considered as valid immigration benefits. Ask your attny to confirm if the approval is not in error and decide what to do next

bsbawa10 10-26-2007 04:52 AM

Yes, it is one of those random lotteries with some sequence in it :-)

I thought the same too, and I think it was the incredibly rare exception - I must have been assigned a visa number VERY quickly and probably benefited from the confusion at the agencies in the summer. AOS applied early June, FP was completed early July, and I am lucky to have a pretty unusual name. My PD was April 04, my card was received before the DC rally - Visa Bulletin for my category was Aug 02 at the time of approval... .

Sorry - I missed these questions...

The system is unfair and broken. Just because I benefited from the current system, doesn't make that statement false
