to GCWorries:



What was your I485 received date? Did you get an RFE earlier in June and Aug 2017 for medicals? Which service center? The reason I ask is your PD was not current in June or Aug 2017, so wondering what was the trigger for submitting the medicals during those times.

Folks my update & background below.
Priority Date: 12/02/2008, EB2 India, NSC
Became current 02/01/2018
Sent case inquiry request via Senators's office and SR on 02/02/2018

02/02 : Text message about RFE - (Turn around time less than 1 day)
02/08 : Received physical RFE copy (For medicals, G325A and Supplement-J forms; Dependent: G325A & Medical Test)
02/13 : Shipped RFE Response documents (Turn around time 4 days)
02/14 : Received TXT msg "We received your response to our Request for Evidence" ( Turn around time 1 Day)
02/16 : Received TXT msg: "New Card is being produced" (Turn around time 2 Days)
02/21 : Received TXT msg- "Card was mailed"
02/23 : Received physical cards through USPS priority mail for me and my dependent

Total days taken from being current this time round: 23 Days!

Background:
My PD 12/02/2008. I work for one of the top 30 ranked Fortune 500 companies. I am not in IT. I am not an engineer. I have completed both my bachelors and masters from top 10 ranked public universities in US. I have never changed companies. I have progressed within the organisation because of excellent leadership and support teams that understand immigration hurdles. I missed the boat in 2012 due to internal issues of filling. Filed in 2014, waited until I received RFE in 2016 but dates never crossed. In 2018 became current and then I finally became Permanent Resident.

Some of the things I did which may have helped me through this journey. I contacted the senators office back in 2014 when I filed I-485 and I continued communicating with them. I built on the relationship with the agent through the years. Every month or two I would request for my case update even if they answer is the same. I wanted to ensure my case was always pinged with USCIS. The agent and I became very good friends and we would even would chat on other topics like college football games etc. I truly believe I got the RFE notification because he contacted USCIS that very morning on Feb 2nd. He knew me so well and recognized the urgency to reach out to USCIS immediately.

My company has a large immigration team. Like many large companies they are generally very slow to react to RFE and other requests. I continued to build my relationship with them through the years. Before I became current, we proactively completed Medical Tests in January and finishing up Supplement J form. We anticipated that the turn around time is going to be crucial when we were current. Also due to this relationship the turnaround time to respond to RFE was incredible. In general terms they would have taken at least 3 weeks to reply at the earliest.

Through the years I have found this portal to be very useful. I never looked at forecasts and inventory numbers closely. What I followed religiously was the VB's 3 month movements. On most occasions they stuck to those time frames. In addition I kept close watch on CO's comments, other attorneys posts such as Fragomen and also watched twitter feeds.

End of the day what was important was being proactive, building on relationship and having some luck on your side. I believe all three elements played on my side.

For folks who are still waiting.. All I have to say in words of Mr. Spock: "Live Long and Prosper"

Hi Really helpful information, Thanks for your time.

I wonder if you could share some more details regarding your experience with supplement J, May be you can help me with my below questions.
1. Did you change your jobs on your EAD, if so, are your SOC codes, Roles & Responsibility for previous Job and Current Job same? If not, how did your attorney manage to justify the current job is in same or similar classification compare to previous one.
2. How long did your attorney take to complete the Supplement J process, did you have to start the process way before you got the RFE? Coz, by attorney is reviewing my Supplement J for last 6 weeks, As per him the process is rather complicated(Though i am not in rush as i have not got any RFE yet, i want the Supplement J form ready by the time i get by RFE).

See me comments below

Like I said I never changed companies. Everything remained the same.


2. How long did your attorney take to complete the Supplement J process, did you have to start the process way before you got the RFE? Coz, by attorney is reviewing my Supplement J for last 6 weeks, As per him the process is rather complicated(Though i am not in rush as i have not got any RFE yet, i want the Supplement J form ready by the time i get by RFE).

We have an in-house immigration team of lawyers and paralegal. We got everything ready weeks of becoming current. I don’t think it is that complicated.

Congratulations and thanks for sharing this information.

one question though, did you get employment verification RFE as well along with Medicals in 2016? The reason I am asking this because you are one of the few from NSC office who had got suppl J. RFE. I remember I got the EVM and Medicals back in 2016.

Congrats ! .. Enjoy the moment !

Just need few things here since my PD also same (12/2/2008) EB2 , but no RFE or case update until today. Been waiting.....

On 5th Feb: I communicated with Senate (Congress), she called up TSC regarding my case immediately. And answer she received over call, that my case would be assigned onto officer for review and shall get update with 30-45 days.

On 20th Feb: I submitted SR on my case to know whats happening. Status of SR shows not yet assigned onto officer. Hope I see some movement on case in next 2 weeks. But it clearly indicates that there should be update by 14th March as per SR SLA.


My senate informed that she would call back USCIS (TSC) after 30 days if no update recieved. So I am hopinhg there should certain before we make to 30 days. Lets see its already 23 days over waiting since 1st Feb.

I gave medical in 2014 and again in 2016 with EVL. But hoping this time, direct GC or least medical RFE.

Is Supp J about employment verification ?

Its a form. Not a letter. Has to be completed by you, employer and attorney. Search for 485 Supp J

Hi folks,

My PD is 12/1/08 ; TSC.
initial date of filing - Aug 2014
previous RFE - July 2016 for medicals and employment verification.

Today, I see a case update saying....On February 23, 2018, Request for Initial Evidence Was Mailed...we mailed a request for initial evidence for your Form I-485, Application to Register Permanent Residence or Adjust Status, Receipt Number SRCxxxxxx. The request for evidence explains what we need from you. We will not take action on your case until we receive the evidence or the deadline to submit it expires. Please follow the instructions in the request for evidence.

Any one received similar message and what was requested? thank you

Thanks for your reply and I am hoping to have some update soon. However, I looked USCIS site and it says once you have taken the finger print it never expires and the background check has the validity of 15 months.

Anyway hoping for the best

Thanks again
