I-140 approved, I-485 submitted, what next?

I filed I-140 and I-485 separately to TSC and a local field office in CT, respectively. I filed I-485 when I-140 is pending. If my I-140 is approved, do I need to notify USCIS the approval of the i-140 for my I-485 case? How does my local field office know if my I-140 is approved?? Thanks ?

Woah it's been a long time since I last came here. Has anyone heard of the immediate cheque to people under the Coronavirus relief plan? Here's the link (https://kdvr.com/news/coronavirus/family-of-4-could-get-3k-under-coronavirus-relief-plan-treasury-secretary-says/)

In the news it says the $1000 would be deposited to citizens only? So how about permanent residents who pay and file tax returns? Are we excluded in the plan?

I guess no one knows for sure at the stage but I want to know if anyone's wondering and hoping like I do now?

F2A Transferred from CSC to PSC. Approved 23 days after transferred

Hey guys! I just want to share some information that I personally had difficulty to find across the web: What happens when your case is being transferred? (Note: YMMV)
I am a LPR and I petitioned my wife for GC application based on marriage. Our case was originally processed at California Service Center (CSC). (Case was received late April, 2019) We were religious in checking the processing time on USCIS website even knowing that the time listed may not be accurate at times. We were hoping that the processing time will become shorter since there was trend lately.
Then... our case was transferred to Potomac Service Center (PSC) on Feb 19, 2020. The listed processing time for I-130 for F2A was way longer than CSC. (CSC: 8.5 - 11 months; PSC: 26.5 - 34.5 months) We were scratching our heads... wondering, "If they are doing workload balancing, why would cases be transferred from CSC to PSC?" We were both quite discouraged at the time.
I was trying to search online to see if anyone sharing similar experience while their case was being transferred and what could happen afterwards. Either I didn't search the right thing or there wasn't any good info out there. The only thing I saw was on VisaJourney where a limited amount of applicants got their cases transferred and then got approved in about 2 months. I tried to calm ourselves with this little trace of evidence, hoping for the best.
Last night, as I was driving home from the airport, I got a notification text from USCIS saying that there was an update on my case. I was mentally preparing for the worst: RFE. Since I was driving, I told my wife to check it. She screamed ecstatically after she saw the screen. IT WAS APPROVED!
Lesson learned: Case transferring seems to be a good news instead of a bad news. Don't freak out.
I hope this sharing could help relieve some of your worries.

K1 visa without a salary in U.S.

Hello all,

I am the petitioner for my fiance and our i-129f was approved in late January, now we are just waiting for packet 3 from consulate to arrive.

I am still currently employed in Hong Kong, but have made plans to move with fiance to the states once her K1 visa is approved.

I have not secured a U.S. job yet but has passed NCLEX 2 months ago and got an active RN license .

We have assets in our U.S. bank account more than 5x annual salary of 120% poverty line and I have Form 1040 tax return for 2016-2018 foreign income (Pending to file 2019).

What I am worried now is that my fiance will get denied in the coming interview, as I don't have a U.S.-based income or experience yet.

Do you guys think this is a concern?

Should we delay the process so that I can go first to find a job in the states?
