    if a change in interpretation is done intentionally, then USCIS admits they were allotting visas incorrectly during the previous years...if it were a public company, lawyers would be climbing over one another to file a class action suit...unfortunately all we can do is write letters, make phone calls and pray :rolleyes:

    Ron says at this site

    that the change in interpretation is done intentionally. I am not sure if we can call it a mistake any more. For some agency to go all out and claim that they have "reviewed" and are therefore going to do things in a new way is kind of casting things in stone.

    This is my first H1-B visa. I was in USA on an F-1 before that. To be honest, I was thinking that it'd take about 7-8 weeks for this matter to solve as I was also told numerous times when I talked over the phone with Delhi consulate people. Saw this forum yesterday, and had no idea that the system in US would be this ridiculous. And no they didn't tell me it was TAL, they only said "administrative processing" and gave me a pink slip. I did call the National Visa Center in USA yesterday, but my prepaid phone died before I could get any relevant information. Will call them again soon and will post here about it. So during this whole time, I was only calling Delhi consulate and checking status online at Delhi consulate's website. Now when I read all these posts about delays here, I am a little afraid now. One my friend in US told me to talk to my boss (in US) and have him call local senator/congressman write a letter to DOS. Has anyone ever heard of such thing or done anything like this? Is is a good idea?

    This is what I did -

    1. Had my lawyer followup with consulate -they respond quickly to that.
    2. Letter from congressman - congressman called consulate and i got a written reply from congressman on status in less than a week
    3. Email followup with consulate
    4. Calls to DOS - have to be on hold for a bit though..

    Interview - Jan 3; 221g (pink) Phd in bio; additional info submitted - Jan 7th; consulate sent info to DOS - Jan 14th; DOS clearance - Jan 31st. Visa issued - Feb 6th...

    Hi meghanap: Thanks for your useful info.
    I am the primary applicant. Mine and kid's case is at TSC, but my spouse's case transferred to Detroit offcie , for the interview. We had the interview 4 months ago, and the DAO said that she would recommend my spouse's case for approval, however it has to wait until the approval of my app. My kid and I got the approval on Oct 22.
    So, now do I have to take an infopass, and request for the yellow form to get approval on the case. Do we get approval from local USCIS office itself or will it come back to TSC? Do you know how long would it take for the approval to come. Or can I call Senator, Ombudsmand, ans start all those cr.. again.
    This info is for the cases who had the interview local USCIS offices where they live.
    After interview ,pls take info pass for every 2 or 3 weeks and when you meet infopass officer, please fill up one yellow form (this form used to send any request to any other department who handled 485 cases.) to adjudicate your case.Make sure you give your i-485 copies and i-140 copies, You can write at least 5 or 6 sentences at the end of the yellow form to supervisor epalining when u r intervew is completed ,,u r PD is current etc etc.

    The way it works like this :
    The dept that takes care i-485 interviews is different from the dept infopass officers in local office.Even though they are in same office, the only way infopass officers can send request the 485 dept is using the yellow form..Pls request for it. Then most of the times info pass officer fils up the form and you will add any additional info at the end of the form. Then infopass officer will send the form to 485 dept supervisor.Supervisor will see the yellow form..if you are lucky he/she wil take action imediatly..otherwise go again after 2 weeks..Request the info pass officer twice or thrice..

    This helped me...

    I know two of my friends who's wifes were on H4 then converted to F1 and were working on OPT and then filed their I-485's and are now working on the EAD got from the AOS.

    I dont think there is any problem in applying for your wifes I-485. In fact I think you would be foolish not to apply for her. More over you are the primary applicant. If your doubtful then take up a paid consultation with top lawyers like Murthy, Mathew Oh etc

    The only problems if when you travel and say if you can apply I-485 then she has to just be patient till her AP comes and then she can travel on that

    This is my case in brief:
    I resigned from company A (who sponsered by RIR LC, and I-140) about a year back.
    Filed I485 using approved 140 of comapny A in July 07, in the485 application we mentioned the details of the current company I am working in. Got EAD and AP approved. (Company A's management is co-operative and supports me to take back)
    Also got 3yr H1b extension approved for current company based on the approved I140 of company A.

    Now Iam traveling to India. Had an appointment in Chennai consulate . My previous H1B visa expired in 2004.
    Will there be any issues with that much gap 4yrs, in getting stamp?
    Is it an issue not working for GC sponsoring employer?

    If I use AP what are the issues?
    If asked at PoE (Newark EWR) why not working with company A? what should be better answer?
    Please respond.

    10 yrs, 2 labors, 2 I-140's, 2-485's, more than 10 infopass appointments, two senator requests, more than 8 level 2 SR's, email to SCOPSSCATA and and then finally got CPO mail as christmas 2010 gift.

    In my opinion the email helped move things lot FASTER. Took over 2.5 months after email to get the GC. I would like to thank all IV members for great insight and suggestions.

    Great idea on focusing on the longer term and going for citizenship. Starting the 5-year clock at the time of 485 filing sounds like the practical way to do this.

    ......You are NOT supposed to have immigration intent when you apply F1. .....

    Correct. You are right.

    One must not have immigration intent at the time of applying for F1 visa or entering USA using F1 visa. However, intent can change over time. Please google for 30-60-90 day rule.

    In fact, one can file for I-485 after 90 days of F1 visa status, if he/she is otherwise eligible.

    This thread (forum as well)seems to be really enthusiatic abt the immigration reforms.
    Keep it up! I am a new member to this forum who had been passively following the S1932 disaster on forums.

    Hopefully things may look better with the new bill sponsored by Arlen Specter.
    The bill looks good but how do we know that it is this bill which will be discussed and not the other bills sponsored by senator hagel,mccain etc..
    Question is even though this bill seems to be a consolidated effort of all the previous bills how can we be sure if this is the bill which will be discussed as part of immigration reforms in feb?
    Also this does not have any clause for applying for I-485 before cut off date?
    So the people who benefit through this bill are probably the Masters/Phd who can automatically adjust their status and the people who have not even applied for a GC ( since no labor cert required).

    But for people who are stuck at their 1-140 waiting to apply for I-485 the only thing this bill helps is increasing the EB quota.
    I am a EB-2 applicant (masters) and would strongly support this bill but i don't see how it helps EB-3 applicants as much unless we have the clause for applying for I-485 before cut off date.

    I was on F1 when the lawyer filed I485 for me along with my husband in 2004.
    I know another couple who did the same.
    F1 is a non immigrant visa and filing for I485 is not appropriate but at the same time it's not the primary applicant. So i don't know if it is going to be a problem or not ( my PD is not current).

    Nope I gave him all info with application mailed on 11 June. They shd be able to pull info with my LS, FS, DOb and center filed.. not by date filed. Lets hope for the best. Yes he could see my checks not cashed and no info about me in the system.. may be thats why he made an email inquiry to NSC.

    Hope this helps.

    Did you by any chance speculated to him that application might be in TSC based on LUD on I140?

    Compare the times with the latest ombudsman report.
    FBI name checks blamed for immigration benefits delays

    By Elizabeth Newell June 22, 2007

    The ombudsman for U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, in a report released last week, cited the untimely completion of FBI name checks as a primary cause of delays in granting immigration benefits to applicants.

    "FBI name checks, one of the security screening tools used by USCIS, continue to significantly delay adjudication of immigration benefits for many customers, hinder backlog reduction efforts and may not achieve their intended national security objectives," USCIS ombudsman Prakash said in his annual report, presented to the House and Senate Judiciary committees on June 11.

    According to the report, 64 percent of the 329,160 FBI name check cases pending from USCIS have been waiting more than 90 days, and 32 percent are more than one year old. There are more than 31,000 cases that have been pending longer than 33 months.

    In his report, said the name check delays are caused by the fact that some require manual review by the FBI and the agency does not have the resources to complete these reviews quickly.

    In an e-mail to Government Executive, FBI spokesman Paul Bresson said the National Name Check Program is doing a number of things to improve the process, including scanning documents to build an electronic records system and testing textual analysis software to reduce the need for manual review.

    The FBI also is working to develop a Central Records Complex to house paperwork and files.

    "Currently, paper files [and] information must be retrieved from over 265 locations throughout the FBI," Bresson said. "The CRC will expedite access to information contained in billions of documents that are currently manually accessed in locations around the U.S. and world."

    To decrease the FBI workload, recommended that USCIS adopt a risk-based approach to name checks, allowing the FBI to focus its limited resources on applicants posing the greatest threat. Currently, all immigration and naturalization applicants go through the name-check process.

    "Name checks do not differentiate whether the individual has been in the United States for many years or a few days, is from and/or has traveled frequently to a country designated as a state sponsor of terrorism, or is a member of the U.S. military," said in his report.

    He said in an interview that while the safety of U.S. citizens is the primary concern of the Homeland Security Department, of which USCIS is a part, it is crucial to use a risk management model to ensure that resources are allocated logically.

    "That has to be used as the filtration system to really look at any of our protective measures," said. "There are times when protection can come at such a cost that it's just not worth spending that much money in that area, that it's better to spend it where we can have more effect."

    The process of applying for immigrant benefits includes a number of other background checks, and 's report questioned whether the FBI name checks are useful in their current form, especially given the delay they cause.

    He said he agrees with USCIS case workers and field office supervisors that "the FBI name check process has limited value to public safety or national security, especially because in almost every case the applicant is in the United States during the name check process, living or working without restriction."

    This is the fourth annual report from the ombudsman, whose position was established under the 2002 Homeland Security Act. The act requires the ombudsman to submit annual reports to Congress identifying serious and pervasive problems within USCIS and making recommendations to fix them. The agency is obligated to respond formally to the annual report within three months.

    While says he received last year's response more than eight months late, USCIS acknowledged receipt of the report and an agency spokesperson said officials are in the process of reviewing the recommendations.
