I received my interview notice 5 weeks later, by mail. The online status never changed after "Transfer blablabla". I got RFE during my interview for medical (status hasn't changed yet either).

My big advice: Get a new medical to your interview if you are 2 months away from RD date.

My RD is 03/07/2017
Case was transferred to NBC on 10/26/2017
Received RFE to submit Supplement J on 11/19/2017
Submitted RFE Response with Supplement J, letter from new employer, paystubs, 485 Notice copy on 12/21/2017
The Response was received on 12/23/2017 (as per USPS tracking)
No update since then. My EAD/AP expires on 04/10/2018. I am preparing documentation to apply for EAD/AP renewal. Anyone else in a similar situation?

EB1C Texas, I140 approved on Nov 14th. I see cases move to NBC after a few days of I140 approval. No updates on my case since 140 approval? Any idea if this is a normal process? Any clue when to expect NBC transfer and interview?
Thanks.

to gs321:


Have you heard anything yet? My I140 was approved on 21st Nov at Nebraska office. I am EB1C. 485 filed on 25th April and haven’t heard anything yet. Status still shows Fongerprint Fees received. I expected the file to transfer to NBC but nothing yet. Anyone else in similar boat?

I had an interview today. Officer asked questions on Employment, latest pay stubs, job role, direct reportees etc. Also had questions on my current status for I have provided H1B extension approval letter and she took copies.She had a question on my medical test (done in 2016) and I did mention that I had an gonorrhea RFE in Aug 2017 where it was mentioned that I just need gonorrhea tests and not all medical tests again. She seemed convinced and at last mentioned that I am all set for approval. However she needs to complete couple of checks before she approves and it will take 2-3 weeks to get card.

I am little confused whether I can still get RFE for medicals or I am all set.

To All,

This may help you to ease your anxiety.

If you already gone through the interview, I understand that your anxiety will continue until you open the envelope with the GC.

My Case Experience: (more info is on previous posts)

Interview date: 1/5/18 approved on the spot
Online updates: 9/27/17 - Case Was Transferred And A New Office Has Jurisdiction, then no more updates until 1/11/18 - New Card Is Being Produced. Then no more updates such as "Card Mailed"
Informed Delivery: (This tool is awesome!) Be sure that on your settings you select YES for both Mail and Packages and add your phone number to receive text updates for packages because the GCs come as a package from USCIS - LEES SUMMIT PRODUCTION FACILITY - KANSAS CITY, MO
Informed Delivery: 1/18/18 - Approval Notices for my family and myself from Lee’s Summit, MO
Informed Delivery: 1/18/18 – Green Cards for my family and I

With this, I concluded a 13 years journey using all type of visas available, F1, OPT, STEM OPT, and 6 years H1-B. For me is easy to say this right now, so I will say it anyway: Please stay positive and do whatever helps you to diminish the stress because your time will come soon and you will be able to enjoy this accomplish, which I think, it was tougher than earning a PhD and being marry with 5 children! Many of you know how difficult it can be for your spouse to be 6 years or more on an H4 visa at home, with 5 kids in my case, without being able to work, looking at the bills that may not be paid on time, or being able to study because in the state where you live H4 visa holders are required to pay out of state tuition. Now my wife just enrolled in college as an instate student.

Good luck everybody and enjoy life! Keep sharing because if it weren’t for all your posts I will be totally insane right now!

I had wrapped up my i485 interview yesterday(17-Jan) at Chicago office. I could not share as I was busy in few activities.
Here is a summary of my experience:

Scheduled interview time: 11:15am.
- Check-in time: 10:55am
- Wait-time: 40 min
- Interview started at 11.40am
- Interview duration: 20 min

Interview process:
As usual started with Oath, Photos, finger printing followed by attorney waiver signature.
- IO asked the DL, Passport and original interview letter.
- Officer verified my legal name, DOB, current address, phone number?
- Officer collected the Employement verification letter and paystubs.
- since mine approved I140, verified Is pertioner same for I485.
- Are you or your spouse are relatives to the owner of the company?
- Verified the visa status/transfers like H1 to L1 etc..
- I-94 travel history and last entry to US.
- Verified about passport/visa lost anytime? Has anyone travelled with you passport/visa etc?
- What company do I work for? What does my company do?
- How long have I worked for my company?
- What is my role in the company?
- Officer writing down all these details in the application
- How many marriages you had? I said only one.
- What are the first names of parents and spouse
- Asked all Y/N questions from the i485 application
- Finally She verified and confirm that my I485J and Medicals are fine.
-
At the end, the officer said everything looks good from my side and she need to verify some company financials and others and she said she has to complete some standard admin processes. She said if everything looks good or any additional information required, I should get an update in few weeks over mail. Then I asked how many weeks it may take and she said it may take 2 weeks to get the final decision.

At the end of the interview, we were handed a notice of interview results "Your case has been held for review....". I assume that this is a standard notice.

All the best ...

I was transferred to NBC on Oct 30 (RD Mar 17) and I've heard nothing since, no RFE. I'm also considering when we should apply for renewal of our EAD/AP, although ours are valid till May.

Are there many Oct 2017 NBC transfers left on this thread that haven't heard anything since transfer? I've seen a few but a lot seem to have received interview dates recently.

Congratulations to all the recent approvals!

and others in the same boat - I just started a thread for people who were transferred to NBC 3+ months ago and have had no updates since. There seems to be a fair few of us spread across various threads and I can't keep track!

I raised a service request on 01/10 and hot generic response in email as under, no other update:
I have requested this case for further review and processing. You will be notified by mail when a decision is made or if further information is required to process your case. You should expect an action on your case within 60 days.

I raised SR for my spouse’s I 485 to which I got the following response in email:
Your case is currently in line for processing and adjudication. Cases are processed in the order in which they were received.

Still waiting for next update..
