was your I140 premium?

Altan - if you check her profile, she moved it from regular to premium and it only took 7 days for her I-140 to get approved. I'm thinking of doing the same. How about you, how's your case doing?

unfortunately my company policy doesn't allow premium processing. my I140 has long time to go, I would say at least two months..

Yes, I upgraded to premium. It was worth every penny! No more worries. Now just waiting for 485. They said my 485 should complete by December 8, 2012. I call USCIS everyday religiously :).

I spoke to CSC Level 2 officer. They said my case has been assigned to an adjudicating officer for Final Review. It's anyone guess on what that means.... :)

Hey nag move na ba from Acceptance to Initial Review yung case mo? Yung sa akin kasi Acceptance pa din eh. Just checking.

I think at times it just moves from Acceptance to Decision. It does not necessarily have to go through the "Initial Review" stage.

That's a good thing to know. I hope we will get an approval really soon.

The lawyer just got the employment letter and preparing the response packet. Hopefully they will ship it soon. Did you also get the approval for your spouse today?

No, unfortunately my spouse's approval has not come. I opened an SR request and it seems our file was kinda split. I have also contacted my lawyer to check for other options. Also, today I will be faxing a letter to my senator to thank them for working on my case and inform them that USCIS somehow split my spouse's case and they shouldn't have since he is a derivative to my case. Lastly, I am thinking of e-mailing the Ombudsman about it as well.. Hopefully something works out.

9 years 345 days later and USCIS is still making me work for it....

It's alright, you are almost there. I raised a service request on my case last month and the officer told me that my wife's case is also being processed separately so I wouldn't be surprised if they will make decision on our cases separately also.
Posted by ProcessingUnit
09 Jan 2013 #36
My lawyer, the Senator and the USCIS rep I spoke to said cases with a primary and derivative are worked at together. I had to raise an SR to merge the files back so they can work on my spouse's file. I think maybe you should have another conversation with USCIS on why your case is being split up. Just my opinion, I hope you get you GC soon.

I agree with you. Probably I will just wait untill I get the decision on my case and who knows maybe we will get it all together. Good luck to your spouse's case.
