Quick qs: When do you establish a PD? When labor if filed, or when i-140 is approved? I thought it was the latter, but your write-up indicates otherwise.. what am I missing?

Default Thank God 4 sweet October

Congrats.. The Green Card after such a long wait must feel really sweet, even though it was expected.
BTW I am in the same boat but with PD of May 04. I got my CPO text on 2nd and GC in the mail on 6th.
Started porting process Sept last year, and got the GC in about an year with 6 month USCIS EB2 shutdown.
It's still sinking in.. Just feeling good that I am not H1B anymore after so many extensions.
I don't have a list of todo after getting a GC, but will change the job after 6 months and go work in a McDonald part time just because I can...

Default Congrats Amit ! Another porting success !

Porting is the way to go for retrogressed Indian folks . Year 2011 was marked as "Year of Porting" for many 2002-2007 Asian-Indians. There are some risks and chances but the reward is good !!

But these days even EB2-I is choked up to SEP 2004. In 2011 they were opened up till 2009 in EB2-I .... That is very sad news.

Mind elaborating?
Why should it take more time than the time taken for a PERM + i-140 ~= 12 months ..?
