Default Is there any sure way to talk with L2 in TSC ?

I talked with a L2 officer in somewhere but not in Texas. Wanted to know whether my application is assigned to an adjudicator or not.

I e-mailed on May 4 at EBupdate and got the following reply
" I have requested your files. When I receive them, I will refer them to an examiner for review/adjudication.You should receive a decision or other notice of action within 60 to 90 days after I refer them. "

The L2 officer says that he could not check that since he is not an adjudicator and not from Texas

Received this from TSC in response from the EBUpdate.tsc email I had sent couple of days back.

Good Afternoon XXXX; The new I 140 was just approved on 05/07/12. The files are now being sorted and placed in line to be assigned to an examiner for
review/adjudication of the I 485ís. You should receive a decision or other notice of action within 60 to 90 days.

I have deleted your email from my response because it contains Personal Identifying Information which would have required me to encrypt my response.

Default pending 485 Nebraska with already ported EB2 date

Hi,
If Pending 485 at NSC with Priority date of Oct 2003, and new EB2 140 is already ported to old 140 date of Oct 2003 on Approval from Texas service center, should I wait till USCIS resolve my I-485 or should I start contacting NSC service center via email or Senators?
Since upcoming Jun bulletin has EB2 Unavailable, can any one suggest the best approach.

Appreciate reply. Thanks.
And here is the list of mail ids which i was looking earlier:

Default EAD/ Adv Parole Question

Hi Everyone,
I have a quick some about self applying for I-765 and I'm hoping someone would reply.

I didn't apply for EAD and Advance Parole during I-485. I wanted to play it safe, so I didn't apply.

But now,I have changed my mind and would like to apply by myself.

My I-485 application was sent to Phoenix AZ lockbox, which got routed to Texas Service center and then later got transfer to Nebraska Service Center. It's current pending with NSC.
Now am applying for I-765/I-131 and I'm not sure where to send.
Do I have to send it to Phoenix lockbox or NSC or TSC?


Can anyone please let me know.



Thanks in advance!

Appreciate It!
JV

Default Files are with an examiner-- how many more days it will take ?

Below is the reply from Texas Service Center in reseponse to my second E-mail to EBUpdate .
"
Your files are currently with an examiner for review/adjudication. You should receive a decision within 45 to 60 days. "

The first resonse was " I requested your files. Once I receive, will be assigned to an officer and you will receive decision within 60-90 days".

Does anybody has any idea how long it will take before getting approval ?

Should I wait more or start congressional inquiry.

Thanks

Default H1 transfer after 7 years and porting question

Dear All,

I know the following questions were asked several times in this forum, I searched a lot and still want some direct answers to my questions. My 485 was filed in 07/2007 however my wife is still on H4:

1. H1 transfer after 7 years what items should be taken care of?
2. Salary increase is more than 30%, will this be a risk during H1 transfer and subsequently to port from Eb3 to EB2?
3. Should I inform USCIS about change in the employers. I have an EAD but have not used EAD so far and I am assuming that H1 transfer itself will be based on AC21 portability. Can someone throw some light on this?
4. Since my I-140 is approved and 485 filed and I am in the 8th year of H1 can I file I-140 on a premium basis?

Any other suggestions and advises will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in Advance.

@khukubindu many congratulations.

Our portings are 5 days apart. Did you send two EB Update emails. And also did you initiate a congress inquiry. Since my emails I have not seen any LUD's on my I-485 cases.

I recently filed for porting from EB3 to EB2 (PD Aug 207). I think the lawyers sent the request for porting around April 20th. Checked via email with TSC and here is the response

"Per the State Dept visa bulletin visas are unavailable for 2nd preference employment based I 485ís from India and China.

Visas should be available again at the start of the new fiscal year, October 01, 2012, however we do not know what the State Dept cutoff date will be at that time"
