485 NEVER expedited...true?

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

USCIS screwed up our AOS package in so many ways it is difficult to believe. In order to get it fixed, I requested help from the US Senator. His liaison for immigration affairs has done a great job for us. She is getting our AP and EAD expedited. Asked her if they can just forget about those two and just push through the 485. She said no way it will happen. You are in the queue for a green card and you are just forced to wait. That is why they issue AP and EAD. Does anyone have a different experience?

According to your timeline, you filed for AOS only in Jan 14 2015. You are still within USCIS normal processing timeline.

Be happy that your EAD is expedited, so that you work asap.

Done with K1, AOS and ROC

No reason to get I-485 expedited. That's why you have EAD and AP until GC arrives.

The EAD/AP takes 60-90 days to receive after filing. The green card approvals are taking quite a few months. Those without interview are sometimes waiting 10-12+ months. You just filed last month, so says your timeline. They are correct. There is nothing more for you to do at this point but wait. When you receive the EAD/AP you can work and travel abroad and re-enter while waiting for your green card. That is their purpose.

~ Moved from AOS from Work, Student & Tourist Visas to AOS from Family Based Progress Reports sub-forum - topic is case status, AOS from K-1 ~
