Hi biochem,

Could you share what you just updated?

Hi Adam,
I got an RFE about medical and the employment letter.
When the Surgeon completed the I-693, for Varicella he checked it as age not appropriate. So they asked to get it done.
For the second it is about the employment. USCIS wanted a letter from the employer describing the title, duties, salary, nature of the work etc.
Let me know if you need additional info.

Congrats biochem for your GC approval. It must be a mighty relief for you! Any idea what the average time is between I-140 approval and I-485 adjudication? My case was filed as an EB1B application at Nebraska. I-140 was approved on July 13th. Thanks.

Thanks drsanson. I think, it will take 3-6 weeks for 485 approval. I called USCIS after 3 weeks and the next day I got the RFE. After replying the RFE, it just took a week for the final approval. May be in 2-3 weeks you will get a response. Good Luck

Thanks Guys. Actually after submitting the RFE, the case status changed and after 6-7 days, I got the approval Email. That’s it. No other updates.
Hopefully you will get the GOOD NEWS soon.
Good Luck
