arrowAOS Timelines need updating... seems a mess

So... Just had a little confused discussion about AOS timelines/processing in our November filings thread. See I knew I heard that NBC processes i-485 to some extent right now.. This isn't reflected in VJ timelines and I really think this should be added/updated so that the timelines are more accurate. Discussion started a few posts prior to this:

Also... in that discussiion, the AOS processing times here

Don't add up when looking at the individual offices when filtering...

Dallas for example has only 4 records the last 360 days in the link above... BUT that ofc makes no sense and when looking at individual cases at that office it isn't reflected...


These timelines are not even estimates anymore.. they make no sense...

Can this be fixed??

arrowEAD rejected

So, I sent i-485, i-131 and i-765 on December 20. I received text/email for i-131 and i-485 earlier this week but nothing about the i-765.

Today I got the EAD application back in my mailbox stating that I sent the wrong fee, how is that even possible? Did the rules for EAD change right before I filed? Do you have to pay for it nowadays even if you file for it with the AOS?

Hi everyone! I have been reading forum posts of other people in a similar, yet very different situation to mine and I'd just love to hear your thoughts. I'll give you a quick-ish backstory to my situation. I met my now husband while studying in Canada (he is American). We visited each other back and forth while I finished my degree in Canada. Since I only received an associate's degree I knew I wanted to pursue a bachelor's degree in my field. I decided to apply for an F-1 visa and was approved. We moved in together and I attended school for 2.5 years and graduated with a 4.0. When I initially came here, my intentions weren't to have some quick wedding...aka we just wanted to date while in the same physical place without any plans for the future. In these 2.5 years, we got engaged (were engaged for about a year) and then got married. And now I applied for AOS.

My main purpose for coming to USA was to complete my bachelor's degree, which is what I did. But I'm worried that they might suspect I had intentions of staying here because I knew my boyfriend at the time of moving here. Since so many people abuse the visa, I don't want to be put in that category. What are your thoughts on all of this?

arrowWork for a company in your home country. Help and tips needed.

Sorry if this is the wrong forum. Please move if needed.

I hope somebody can help or give me some pointers in the right direction.

I've been living in the States, Michigan, for a year and a half now. I have my 2 year conditional green card.

I've just got hired by a company from my home country Sweden. I will be working from home in the beginning and I'm so far the only "American" employee.

What I'm asking is if anyone would know the best way to go about this?

How they should pay my salary, taxes etc. Can I get a 401k, health insurance?

How would be the best way for the company to act?

Hire an accounting firm here in the States who will take care of all of this?

Could they in that case also recommend 401k and health insurance?

They should probably follow American employee regulations and policies, how would they know these?

This is a dream job for me and really want to be sure that everything is done the right way and that I'm able to get as many benefits as possible.
Would really appreciate any help I can get! Thanks you!
