We can apply simultaneously but I could not do so because we received I140 later.

Hi,
Is your case approved? I applied on July 18th at Vermont and am wondering if there is any progress in approving the cases filed before me.

Thanks.

Kindly let me know when your status changes. Currently it is showing an average processing time of 7-8 months at the Vermont center for COS to H4. I am hoping they will speed it up a bit as other center are processing the same in 4 months.

I applied for I539 on May 8th ....I765 on Aug 17th.....no reply on these applications. (regular processing)

My husband had to get his H1 extension done in premium processing ....along with that his company filed my extension applications (to previous 2 pending I539 and I765) ...thats when I got both done in 2-3 weeks time of submission.

If its a regular submission for your case....Vermont takes reallyyy long time and its quite annoying.
Few things I tried but luckily got my visa before any of that could have been done were :
a) Raised Service Request after 75 days and 90 days ......mentioned that I have a job and I will have financial stress if I loose my job because of such long pending case....
b) I went to local Congressman's office ....explained them my situation and they helped ...they followed up with USCIS....
The very next day I got my approvals....I believe the expedite processing helped but you can try above two things if you want.

Oct 25 is not very long as per my experience with Vermont. They are really slow.

All the Best !
