Topic: Primary applicant's Interview scheduled. But spouse's pending

Hi guys,

A case study for you! :-)

I applied for my EAD, AP and I-485 in October '17 and I got my EAD/AP in Dec '17 and now my GC interview is scheduled on 28th April '18. However, I could not apply for my wife's EAD/AP/I-485 along with mine because she is not in USA then. We applied for her case in Dec '17 and she got her EAD/AP yesterday and the case status on her I-485 has changed to 'Case transferred to NBC' and 'Case under Initial Review' in last couple of days.

So my questions are:
1. Should I go alone to my GC interview?
2. Should I take my wife along to my GC interview? Will she be allowed?
3. Should I wait till she gets her interview notice and both of us go together?

I know its an unusual problem but I wanted to try n see if there is someone in a similar situation.

Thanks,
Sam

Topic: Difference in EAD (color/font/design)

Guys,

I got my EAD in late Dec '17 and my wife got her EAD yesterday (we had to apply her EAD later than mine as she was not in USA when they applied mine). But I see some differences in the look & feel of her EAD. Her's is pinkish in color and has hologram/water mark of statue of liberty and few other minor changes. This is not a matter of concern but I just want to know if anyone else has got similar card.

Does anyone know if spouse EAD is supposed to different than yours? or were there any recent changes done to the EAD card itself.

Thanks,
Sam

Topic: Time between I485J Suppl Receipt and I485J Approval

but my interview is scheduled for last week April '18!! so that's some solace.. :-)

From what I gather in this forum is that RFE and RFER Supplement J is just a formality and it has little/no bearing on the I485 approval. So we should be fine!

Good luck!

Topic: March 2018 transfer to NBC

Online status for I-131 doesn't change but you will receive an approval notice saying your I-131 is approved. Also, you will receive an EAD combo card with a line on it saying "this card can be used as Advance Parole".

Sign up for Informed Delivery on USPS site to track the EAD package from USCIS.

Good luck,
Sam

Topic: Time between I485J Suppl Receipt and I485J Approval

Yes, I am on EB3 ROW and I have been with the same employer for last 5 yrs but I still got the RFE for Supplement J. Its been almost 2 months since we have responded to the RFE but the status still shows as 'Fee waived'

Good luck,
Sam

Topic: Travel with AP...NEED ADVICE

In my opinion - if you haven't got an interview notice yet, you may not have the interview appointment before 25th April '18. So you should be able to travel and return to US before that as per your travel plans (April 5th -15th). As far as I know, there is at least one month's lead time between the time you receive the interview notice and the actual interview appointment date. I got my interview notice on 25th March '18 and my interview is in the last week of April '18.

As far as entering/returning to USA using AP - you should not have any problem. I went to India for a month in Feb and returned to USA yesterday. Immigration officer at the first counter did not ask any question. Instead, he looked at my EAD/AP combo card and passport and said "We need to verify your Advance Parole. So pls wait for an officer to escort you to the waiting area". Another officer came and took me to an office where there were few other folks already waiting. I had to wait for 10 mins before an officer called my name and he asked me if I am still with my employer, where did I travel (India), how do I plan to get GC (employment based). and thats it!

Good luck,
sam

Topic: Travel to India on Advance Parole : Questions

Hey,

I entered US on Advance Parole two days back and there were not many questions. Second Immigration officer asked if I am still with my employer, where am I coming from and how do I plan to get GC (Employment based). They didn't ask for any document at all. Both checks were done within 20 mins.

Good luck,
Sam

Topic: I485 - Case Was Transferred to NBC

Yes, it's in pink color and it says "a completed and signed i693 was not submitted" and DO NOT MAIL THE DOCS" .

Am not sure how different is it from white one.

Topic: I485 - Case Was Transferred to NBC

I also got a similar pink letter yesterday. I was worried that it's related to the supplement J RFE that I had responded. I guess, we will just have to wait for them to set up the interview now.

Good luck,

Topic: Days since your RFER

Congratulations bud!!!

quick question: Did you receive a notice saying "Fee waived" for Supplement J? and did the status change for supplement J to 'Approved'? Or did you get the interview appointment letter directly?

Topic: Days since your RFER

Guys,

What happens after I respond to the RFE? I had RFE for supplement j on 12th Jan '18 and we responded on 12th Feb '18. My online status changed to "We have received your response to the RFE and we will start working on your case again" on 13th feb.

But today I got a physical notice in USPS mail saying "Receipt notice fee waived". It's a i485j case type and has a new receipt number.

Can anyone help?

Thanks,
Sam

Guys,

I just got a physical notice saying "Receipt notice fee waived". What does that mean?

Notice Type: I485J - Confirmation of Bona Fide Job offer or Request for Job portability INA SFC 204(J)

I had got an RFE for Supplement J which we responded to on 1st Feb 2018. My online status shows that "Response for RFE was received on 4th Feb 2018 and we will start working on your case again".

What is this latest notice that I have received?

Topic: Travelling to India on Advance Parole via AIR FRANCE from USA.

Hey bud, need help!

My H1B is expired on 31st Dec '18 and currently its in extension process. My EAD/AP was approved recently and its valid until end of this year. I also have an approved B1 visa which is valid until 2025. I understand, one can not travel through Europe without a valid US visa stamped on your passport or without a transit visa. So my question is:

> Can I travel through Europe using B1 visa?
