If I were you, I would rush for GC NOW! Technically, I-140 does not expire and if you are in the same field, you are good. BUT, here is a big immigration reform coming. This reform will make ALL old I-140s obsolete and you will need to jump into a new line. I don't know your situation, but most academic researchers have ZERO chances under the new system (unless you are not a Nobel Prize winner).

Don't worry, I have changed my passport after I submitted I-485 and replyed the RFE using the new passport number, everything went OK.

Relax, dude, you will get it soon. If you are so impatient, do infopass and get your passport stamped!

No. USCIS runs by the fees mostly. Gov't shutdown will not affect GC processing in a short run.

Topic: EB2-NIW EB1 and I-485

If your visa situation allows you to wait - wait. To gain some time you need to file EB1A Premium Processing and it became extremely hard to get through, especially if you are filing at NSC. You must be really stellar to get approved under EB1PP. Expect that EB2-ROW category can retrogress during the spring/summer and you will not able to file I-485 during the retrogression.

Even worse, filing COS to H4 after 20 days on entry on F1 is a terrible idea. I wonder, how people are careless about such things. US immigration law is very different from other countries (e.g. Shengen). Do not assume your US visa as a do whatever you want to in the US carte blanche. Your wife's University should have provided her a package about her immigration responsibilities as an F-1 student. Has she ever read that? "Just traveled out of the country....", ridiculous.

Natan111 is right. EB people have zero representation. For Dems, we all carry the "educational and good-job guilt", for GOP we are all too-brownish. Nobody caries for EB.

I'm not a tax expert, but AFAIK if you pass a "significant presence" test, you cannot file as non-resident. New LPRs may elect to file as US residents or non-residents for the first year, but only if they do not pass the significant presence test.

For 2018 you are US resident for sure. Don't forget to update your W-4.

I'm in if you want some of my help. DIY packages and FAQs can be very useful for new NIW applicants.

Politics and campaigns are very important. I'm following some "liberal" immigrant attorneys on twitter. It's amazing how much BS is in their heads like EB GCs are immediately delivered to your door just because you're rich, male and white.

This is an interesting question actually. It is more or less justified for employer-sponsored GCs, but for NIW it is very loose. The next time we, hopefully, will encounter with USCIS is applying for citizenship in five years. If during that time I drop my university position and start a startup field based on my research? If I apply my knowledge in some other field, say switching from soft-condensed matter to biotech? All that transitions seem pretty much valid to me, but officers who handle citizenship cases are not trained for that, because the majority (like 80%) of immigrants are family-based, as the majority of the rest 20% is employer-sponsored. And what if one doesn't apply for citizenship at all?

Topic: a green card re-entry permit to renew

Is it a re-entry permit (to stay out of the US for more than 6 months maintaining your LPR status) or an AP got while your I-485 is pending?

I'm thinking about it. Lawyers are paid much better than postdocs and even professors :) Unfortunately, getting a license is very costly.
