Does the i-485 effect the i-765 processing time?

Hello all VJs,

I came into the US on an F-1. Upon graduating I got my ead card which expired the end of November 2014. I filed my i-130, i-485, i-693, i-765, and i-864 in October 2014 and got this update for my i-485:

On November 26, 2014, we suspended processing of your case, Receipt Number XXXX, because we need more information from you. Your notice explains what we need from you to resume work on your case. We will not take action on your case until we receive the evidence or the deadline to submit it expires.

Since I would like to work while this is processing, will this RFE delay my work authorization? Does it completely stop the processing of all my forms?

Also, when do I go in for my medical exam? Will they tell me?

Thanks all!

You were supposed to include the medical examination results (I-693) in your I-485 application. Probably what they need from you.

Nevermind, I just noticed you have included it. I am confused though why you asked when you have to go for your medical?

Yes, I believe everything stops until the new docs are received.

Nevermind, I just noticed you have included it. I am confused though why you asked when you have to go for your medical?

Seconding this reply - if you went in for a medical and submitted the corresponding i-693 filled out by your doctor, you are all good to go. Could you please clarify?

Oops, nope. You had to go for the medical. You fill out the top, doctor fills out the rest. Doctor seals form and results in envelope, you send it in sealed envelope. So I think you might have your answer as to what they are looking for.

I guess I was confused when submitting as I did not go in for the medical, only filled my portion and thought they set it up?

Then good thing you asked! :) They don't set it up for you - you're responsible for setting one up and submitting an i-693 completed by an eligible doctor along with the rest of your application

You'll need to set up an appointment with a designated civil surgeon (you can't just go to any doctor). Bring the form with you to your appointment (fill out your portion but do not sign it). The doctor will complete the form, ask you to sign it and hand it back to you in a sealed envelope. You'll need to submit the form in the sealed envelope, otherwise USCIS won't accept it.

You'll want to do this as soon as possible, since sometimes you'll need to go in for follow-up appointments (e.g. to get vaccinated).

The complete instructions plus the list of civil surgeons can be found on the USCIS page: http://www.uscis.gov/i-693

As a side note, since a part of the process is making sure that your vaccinations are up-to-date, I'd highly recommend bringing your vaccination records (and any other medical records) with you to help speed up the process.

Does your RFE ask for a new form to be submitted? If not, I imagine you'll get the form returned to you in the mail once they start processing again, which could delay your paperwork even further. I reckon you should be able to submit a new (completed) copy along with your other RFE documents (maybe include a cover letter indicating why you're including a new copy), but I would call to check.

Good luck!
