Hi,

On 3/22 got an email update “Your case was transferred to another office” (Note it did not say where it is), also at the same time Primary’s I485 and I485J was also transferred with the same message (Primary already got the GC). Waiting for notice to find where it go.

I485 RD is 02/12/2018.
FP - 03/13/2018
Case transfered - 03/22/18

Is this normal to transfer even after GC approval? any one going thru the same experiencing?

Most likely to NBC, to prepare the file for local office interview.

Yes, it is normal for the primary file to get transferred as well (even after approval ) - it is the file that gets transferred as the primary file and derivative are tagged together. Please read through this thread for multiple posts on this.

Thank you.

Today got another email we transferred your Form I485, APPLICATION TO REGISTER PERMANENT RESIDENCE OR ADJUST STATUS, Receipt Number LIN18902xxxx to another USCIS office. That office now has jurisdiction over your case. This means interview?

Hi Everyone,
My PD is 02/21/2007 @ TSC, I submitted my 485 during the 2006/2007 window I got an RFE late Nov'17 and responded back mid Dec 17. RFER date: 1/3/2018. Current status say :"Name Updated" since i had a change of attorney. My wife has her own GC process which started prior to our marriage. Her priority date is 04/2006 but she couldn't submit the 485 during that window. She became current last year and she filed her 485 in Sept 2017. Her lawyers added my information to her application at the time. Her case was transferred to NBC in Jan 2018. In response to my RFE, I updated my status to married and added her information. My question: Do I need to do something when I get current (April), so we don't have to go through the interview process (if it is avoidable). I will be checking with my lawyers as well but thought I'd ask the experts here. I may have misused some terminology(so apologies in advance for my ignorance). Good luck to those who are current!

Probably not. Interview case status will usually say that interview is scheduled. do not try to read too much into case status.
I suggest that you wait for the notice.

1. "She became current last year and she filed her 485 in Sept 2017. Her lawyers added my information to her application at the time" Did they file for your AOS as her dependent then? I'm not sure if that is the process since you already have your AoS pending.

2. It appears her 485 will be processed earlier than yours since she is current. If so, since her filing was done Aug 2017, she comes under 'Mandatory interviews will be implemented for all employment based applicants who’s I-485 Adjustment of Status to Permanent Resident (i.e. green card) applications were filed on or after March 6, 2017 under EB1,2,3' I'm guessing interview is mandatory

3. As a spouse, you may be interviewed, but it is possible since your AoS was filed in 2006/2007 window, you may not be called.

Not necesarily, the other office will now schedule your interview in due course.
