I-140 was approved on October 2nd after I upgraded it to premium processing. I had an LUD on 10/5 (probably due to the 1-140 approval) and nothing new so far.

FBI security check would be done within 3-4 days for about 80% of all 485 and within 2 months for other 10% and longer than 6 months for last 10%. Only speaking of eb2 485 Texas with 140 approval through premium, for 80% cases, 485 might be approved within 1 week or 5 weeks since more recent one between 140 approval and FP. For other 10%, it might take about 2 months more than normal case. In the last 10%, people might need much more patience.
It's just my thought.
Good luck!

I think that i'm stuck with a name check. my I 140 was approved in Premium Processing and I had LUD October 5. it's almost a month and nothing is happening, no LUD and thank god no RFE's. I wish there was a way to know if that's the case.

Hi hxphxp12,

I sent you a message with the wrong instructions. to make an infopass appointment go to www.uscis.gov; you will see an infopass logo on the left side of the screen; press this link and follow the instruction. good luck.

I went to Infopass appointment today and to my surprise I found out that my case was sent to Nabraska on October 7the. I only way i could find out about it was thourgh Infopass, thus I assume there are many applicant who think (like I did) that their case is in Texas because the receipt notice is from Taxas while their case is actually being processed in Nabraske.

they don't give you alot of information or when the case will be completed but you may find if your name check is cleared or where is your case at this time (like mind was sent back to Nabraske).

I went to infopass apt today. I was told my I-485 is pending security check, so they didn't even start security check. They also couldn't find my I-140 (it was approved on 9/26/06, but still shows up as not approved in their web site), so I am worried now. Thanks again and good luck to you.

you have nothing to worry about. it's not unusual that the don't know what's going on. As long as you are in the normal processing time and you don't get RFE you are O.K. the biggest problem is to get the I-140 approved once you past this obsticle its just a matter of time. good luck.

Thanks, baretlaw, for kind words. If I can convince my lawyer to follow up to make sure I-140 shows up OK and approved at their end, it would be great. If not I guess I have to wait to see what will happen.
