Question Strange: Approved 140 transferred

Gurus,
I received an email today that my approved (12/2005) EB2 140 petition has been transfered to TSC. Orignal 140 & 485 was filed at VSC & 485 got transfered in the mass transfer to TSC in 03/2007. I have used AC-21 in 04/2007. Why would an approved 140 be transferred now? Here is the email text:

Application Type: I140, IMMIGRANT PETITION FOR ALIEN WORKER

Current Status: This case has been sent to another office for processing because it has jurisdiction over the case.

On July 23, 2009, we transferred this I140 IMMIGRANT PETITION FOR ALIEN WORKER to our TEXAS SERVICE CENTER location for processing because they now have jurisdiction over the case.

Why did you file for EB3 140 when you already had EB2 approved 140? What exactly is your question?

Default Approved I-140 trasnferred from TSC to NSC

I-140 was approved in 2008 by TSC, and I got email from USCIS recently that the I-140 was trasnferred from TSC to NSC. Now, the Case Status Online shows as "Current Status: This case is now pending at the office to which it was transferred" (at Initial Review). What does that mean? Is NSC going to process this approved case again and give decision on that?? Do I need to do anything at this point?

Please help.

Thanks.

Default How do I start a new thread?

Hi,
I am sorry to ask here but I cannot seem to find how to start a new thread or new forum question. I wanted to get some advice on H4 visa. We started our GC process and our PD is Nov 06 and recently my husband decided to move out of country for studies. He started the GC process and quit his sponsoring company. SO I think our application will be considered abandoned? and he cannot come to US on AP. Can he come on H4 because I am on H1 B? If yes then can he apply from his current resident country? What all documents are needed?

Thanks!

Did you already file I140 and I485? At what stage is the GC process? AP is only possible if you have a pending I485.

H1 is a dual intent visa while H4 is a derivative of H1. Assuming you haven't filed for I140, and I485; the labor cert itself does not give any immigration status. Note that the labor certifications expire in 6 months. Your husband can come on H4 visa as you have a valid H1B status.
You can apply for H4 visa at any US consulate - Check the specific consulate website for details about reqd documentation etc.

Make sure your employer did not revoke the petition otherwise it might have been an error on part of USCIS. It's better though to consult an attorney and fix the problem when it is small. Call the USCIS and do whatever is necessary.

Hi ,
I got similar e-mail when my employer revoked my 140,few months back.(and in some forums i saw the same trends discussed during that time)
Later i got denial notices from CIS,and went through uphill journey(filled MTR) before my 485 got approved this month.

Your case may be similar or may be not .
but just wanted to let you know in case if it helps.

Good luck.

Default How to reenter USA?

I am sorry to ask here but I cannot seem to find how to start a new thread or new forum question. I wanted to get some advice on H4 visa. We started our GC process and our PD is Nov 06 and recently my husband decided to move out of country for studies. He started the GC process and quit his sponsoring company. SO I think our application will be considered abandoned? and he cannot come to US on AP. Can he come on H4 because I am on H1 B? If yes then can he apply from his current resident country? What all documents are needed?

---------------------------------------
Thanks Ramaonline.

Did you already file I140 and I485? At what stage is the GC process? AP is only possible if you have a pending I485.

- Yes, I 140 is approved and my husband has used AP earlier when working in USA.

H1 is a dual intent visa while H4 is a derivative of H1. Assuming you haven't filed for I140, and I485; the labor cert itself does not give any immigration status. Note that the labor certifications expire in 6 months. Your husband can come on H4 visa as you have a valid H1B status.

- Yes, I have not filed for my GC. Now, looking at the dates and waiting times I feel very discouraged to apply. We cannot afford to wait 6-10 years so I guess I will just leave too once my H1 B expires and then as I understand can come again on H1 B after being outside for 1 year.

You can apply for H4 visa at any US consulate - Check the specific consulate website for details about reqd documentation etc.

- OK. I will check again but I didn't find anything for H4 ..only work visa. Can they reject it too? Also, copy of my 797 is sufficient?

Thanks again and Happy Diwali!

Since your husband's I140 was approved and I485 was pending before he left, did you file a derivative I485 for yourself as well? Also, does he have a valid AP now?

GC is for future employment and there is no requirement to be working for the GC sponsoring employer at any time during the GC process. At the time of 485 approval however it becomes necessary to be working for the GC employer or (under AC21) work in a similar job / have a similar job offer from same or different employer which can prove the employer's intent to hire the person after getting the green card. This is necessary in case USCIS issues a RFE / NOID.
