Topic: February 2018 Filers

Status on myaccount.uscis.dhs.gov website changed today and now reads "April 20, 2018. We transferred your case to another USCIS office for processing" and "April 20, 2018. We received your case. You do not need to do anything at this time".
Awaiting for the hard copy of the notice to make heads and tails of which center has received and is processing my case!

Hi bigreni-I've also filed my I-485 under Cross-Chargeablility provision. I'm curious to know how you were able to identify from USCIS of the inaccuracy in their system. Did you talk to an L2 officer and have them verify the Country of Chargeability? Thanks for your attention.

Topic: February 2018 Filers

Received same alert today AM from USCIS, "On April 20, 2018, we transferred your Form I-485, Application to Register Permanent Residence or Adjust Status, to another office for processing and sent you a transfer notice".
Interestingly, this is only on the egov.uscis.gov portal. On the new myaccount.uscis.dhs.gov website no change in status.
No change to I-765 status.

Additional comments "During this step, USCIS initiates the background checks of the applicant/petitioner and identifies issues that may need to be addressed either during an interview or by asking the applicant/petitioner to submit additional information or documentation. USCIS reviews the applicant's/petitioner's criminal history, determines if there are national security concerns that need to be addressed, and reviews the application/petition for fraud indicators."

Topic: I-485 Phoenix Lockbox Receipt Notice - Late Feb 2018 filer

Hope no one else will run into this, but in case, thought I share the response that I got a response from my attorney today -

"This receipt notice is specific to the I-485 Supplement J application which we submitted with your adjustment of status application. The I-485 Supplement J application confirms that you continue to have a bona-fide job offer at HealthEdge. There is no fee for the I-485 Supplement J, which is why the receipt notice says " Receipt Notice Fee Waived." There is no cause for concern. Thanks!"

Thank you OpenSL for taking time and responding, much appreciated! I did see different views on other sites on this topic http://www.visajourney.com/forums/topic/616023-...

I got a response from my attorney today and it chimes with your response -

Update-I received my I-797C, Notice of Action today with the comment "On February 1, 2018, we received your case and waived the filing fee for your Form I-485J, Confirmation of Bona Fide Job Offer or Request for Job Portability Under INA Section 204(j), Receipt Number LIN1809XXXXXX." Interesting why the filing fee was waived. I'll be in touch with my Attorney on Monday.
My case was filed to the Phoenix office but now see a Nebraska Service Center in the notification. Also, I never requested for a fee waiver, but the fee was waived without any details. Any ideas why this could have transpired? Any insight would be appreciated.

You might find this link interesting https://www.hooyou.com/news/news030810wom.html
I remember reading this earlier part of the year, but it took me a while to search for this recommendation. If your attempts to get traction in spite of multiple Congressional inquires are not fruitful, then this could be a shot. It's unfortunate that even the revised I-485 application, doesn't have a field to designation "Cross-Chargeability". Pls keep us posted.

Hi there,
Out of curiousity, did you and your spouse not apply together to benefit from utilizing the CC rule?
Also did your Attorney not provide covering letters that your petition needs to be covered as a case of CC and be charged to Taiwan?

Topic: When exactly is priority date?

First assumption on PD is correct, but it's I-485 that you cannot submit without your Priority Date (PD) being current.
You can submit I-140 irrespective of your PD.
Reference- https://www.murthy.com/2015/10/27/priority-dates... see section "Why Priority Dates are Important" and also https://www.hooyou.com/lc/perm_priorit...

The priority date is the date on which the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) receives ETA Form 9089 (PERM), please see reference here https://www.hooyou.com/lc/perm_priorit...

Topic: When exactly is priority date?

That's a confusing statement. May be you wanted to state when "PERM is submitted" is counted as the Priority Date as opposed to when I-140 is submitted?
If you fall under the EB3, you'll need to go through the Stage 1 (PERM) process and the date the PERM is electronically received by DOL is your Priority date.

Topic: Recruitment period for EB-2


Does the job description/qualifications need to be exactly the same as what was on the prevailing wage determination for my position?
> This should be the same and shouldn't change during the whole process. Keep in mind this posting is for a "future" position.


Just to confirm with you, with the ad posted on SWA, the rest of the recruitment methods can be done all at the same time and following that is a 30-day waiting period, and finally the PERM can be officially filed? I would imagine PERM can be filed at the end of 60 days as well, and definitely not 120 days.
> That's correct, you can do these in parallel. You would really need to have aggressive f/u with both HR & Attorney. Otherwise, these dates will slip and miss the timelines.


Thanks for providing information on how the whole recruitment process can be even shortened, unfortunately I do not believe my attorney will opt to do this. However, I would like to know whether the PERM can be drafted before the recruitment is completed?
> Your Attorney can initiate the electronic "draft" process of the ETA form 9089, but you cannot submit it without the PWD and the completion of the recruitment process.

Topic: Recruitment period for EB-2

Where was your ad posted? I'm guessing this is with the SWA (State Workforce Agency). If yes and since you have already received the PWD and the recruitment process has already begun, I don't believe it should take you another 4 months from mid-July.

Your employer has to go through 3 mandatory and 3 additional recruitment activities http://www.nolo.com/legal-encyclopedia/employer... & https://www.hooyou.com/lc/perm_ad&re.html Since the SWA AD has the mandatory requirement of 30 days posting, I would suspect that your employer might have started with that. You might want to select the SWA for your State https://us.jobs/state-workforce-agencies.asp and keyword search with your employer name.The other mandatory ads can be run in parallel.
Following this there's a 30-days waiting period to allow for more candidate to apply and for the applicants to be interviewed.
If your Lawyer and HR Dept. are at lockstep all the way, then you should be able to file your PERM application (ETA Form 9089) at the end of the 60 days (beginning of the 3rd month).

Interestingly you can in parallel go through the Recruitment process during the time PWR is being "filed" with DOL. Check the last question on page 13-https://www.foreignlaborcert.doleta.gov/pdf/perm... Also refer - http://www.nolo.com/legal-encyclopedia/employer...
During the time the PWR is filed, all the mandatory required ADs can be placed in different media but after the PWD is received, there should be at least one more mandatory recruitment ad. This could potentially be the one with the shortest recruitment ad (In-house posting/Notice of Filing) for 10 consecutive "business" days, followed by a wait for another 30 "calendar" days to allow candidates to respond (waiting/cooling-off period). Taking this approach in parallel would possibly shorten this recruitment cycle.
