Topic: Renew DL while waiting for GC approval

Yep, bring your passport, EAD and SSN card to the DMV and they will renew it until the EAD's expiration date. I had no problem to renew my DL with it in Iowa. You can also bring your I-485's receipt notice although they didn't ask me to show it.

Topic: Average time for NBC to send out Interview notice

People here are either incredibly pessimistic or it's a detection bias because the only people who post here are those who had problems with the processing of their cases. I analyzed the I-485 data from the tracker, and on average it takes 80 days for approval from the date the case was transferred to NBC. Some cases were as quick as 45 days and some as slow as 120 days, but the bulk of the cases was approved within 70-90 days from the transfer date.

I-140 approval: 11/13/2017
Transferred to NBC: 12/20/2017
Received Courtesy Letter: 01/31/2018

I received a courtesy letter today saying that after initial review my I-693 was missing (I didn't submit it with the I-485 initially), and that I need to bring it with me "If I receive an interview notice" to the interview?
The good thing is that I now know that someone touched my case.
Did anyone else got the courtesy letter? And how long does it take to the interview notice?

Thanks!

Topic: EAD Renewal With I-485 pending rejected for incorrect fee

Hi Everyone,

I submitted forms I-131 and I-765 to renew my EAD and advance parole. My I-485 is now at NBC waiting for an officer to make a decision on the case. My I-131 was sent to Nebraska and is being processed, form I-765 on the other had received an "MSC" receipt number and it's status is showing "Case Rejected Because I Sent An Incorrect Fee", although there should no filling fee if I have a pending I-485, and my I-131 is seems to be processed normally (I didn't include a fee for it). Now I'm waiting for an L2 officer to call me back about it.
Did anyone here had a similar experience with their renewals?

Thanks,

This is the latest policy update from August 23, 2017, the news release about the mandatory interviews is from August 28, 2017 (https://www.uscis.gov/news/news-releases/uscis-t...).

The new policy states at the beginning of Volume 7, Chapter 5: "All adjustment of status applicants should be interviewed unless USCIS waives the interview[1]", which is consistent with the press release, posted 5 days after the new policy was enacted.
It then continues with: "Interviews for employment-based adjustment cases are also generally waived if:
•The principal applicant has been approved as a person of extraordinary ability or exceptional ability and is otherwise eligible for adjustment of status"

So this is the NEW post DJT policy.

How did it affect NIW-based I-485s? Did all the recent cases had an interview or only some of them?

Topic: EB2-NIW I-485 Nebraska (any receipt date)

According to the following guidelines from the end of August this year, for NIW-based adjustment of status cases, interviews are generally waived.
Is that actually the case for people who were recently approved?


https://www.uscis.gov/policymanual/HTML/PolicyMa...

A. Interview Waiver Criteria
1. Waiver Criteria
Interviews for employment-based adjustment cases are also generally waived if:
==================================================
•The principal applicant is employed by the same petitioner who submitted the approved underlying employment-based immigrant visa petition or is eligible for adjustment portability; [4]
•The principal applicant has been approved as a person of extraordinary ability or exceptional ability and is otherwise eligible for adjustment of status;
•The principal applicant has been approved as an outstanding professor or researcher, or a multinational executive/manager and has a continuing offer of employment from the same petitioner who submitted the underlying approved petition; or
•The principal applicant received a national interest waiver based on performing primary medical care to a medically underserved area who demonstrates that he or she intends to continue according to the terms and conditions of the underlying petition

Hi Guy,

I finally got my NIW approved last week. My PD is 12/06/2016, I have submitted my I-485 concurrently in march and haven't seen any movement other than "Fingerprint Fee has been received" after I submitted it. I got my EAD and AP awhile ago too.
Do you know how long it usually takes from the point the I-140 is approved until they start moving your case around?

Thank you,
Gil

I had my EB2-NIW I-140 approved this week, and I have a concurrent I-485, recieved on 03/14/2017 pending in Nebraska. How long can I expect for it to take until an interview/medical RFE?
Thanks!
