  1. Yup, I just did today! I figured I was going to eventually anyway so I might as well as early as possible. It was so smooth compared to all previous applications, did it online & took me just two hours to put together.
  2. Awesome! Thank you and I’m happy for you as well! Fingers crossed we have our ten year green cards in 10 months, no bio appt or interview appt… that would be ideal.
  3. According to Informed Delivery my NOA1 letter is coming in today! I still have a month to go on my GC but I’m transitioning roles at work and it seems my immigration status may have held things up a bit (which I only learned once I had just submitted my package) so I’m relieved.
  4. Someone else can probably help with the spreadsheet but if you're referring to stats then you can also check them here on VJ, e.g. for ROC: https://www.visajourney.com/timeline/liftlist.php?cfl=0&op1=1&op2=&op3=&op4=14&op5=5,9,10,11,12&op6=Vermont Service Center I have filtered on Vermont and filing date but you can obviously change those parameters. You can also see stats here https://www.visajourney.com/timeline/liftstats.php?cfl= And this page actually says average days for ROC through Vermont right now is just under 400. But that's so strange because when looking at the individual data above there are tons of approved cases from late last year. Not sure why the discrepancy.
  5. Sent ROC package 9/20/2021 Delivered 9/23/2021 at 9am Credit card pending transaction 9/24/2021 at 7am Text notification with case # 9/24/2021 at 2pm Vermont service center, which actually doesn't look too bad. Majority of people who applied a year ago already got their GCs. Looks like around 10 months is average
  6. If your current company has an approved blanket L petition it seems that you could possibly change status while in the US (see USCIS.gov excerpt below). What I'm not sure of is whether change of status to L1 = abandoning AoS. But it makes sense that it would be abandoned, because you're no longer on the B2 or expired B2, you're on an L1 and would probably need to apply again to adjust from the L1 instead. If you have the offer, it doesn't hurt to try and expedite your EAD based on financial loss. This may have changed during Covid times, but there are expedite cases on here that are four weeks from application to EAD in hand. (from USCIS.gov:) Change of Status Request for Beneficiaries Who are in the United States: All petitioners requesting a change of status to L-1 based on an approved blanket L petition for a beneficiary who is currently in the United States must file the following: Form I-129, Petition for a Nonimmigrant Worker, and Form I-129S, Nonimmigrant Petition Based on Blanket L Petition (the 06/02/16 edition only). We may reject any Form I-129 for an L-1 blanket change of status request that does not also include Form I-129S.
  7. Yea I assume these addresses go to lockboxes, it's just not that clear from the USCIS website. But I sent my package today with the credit card payment via USPS so hopefully that works.
  8. No matter if you send with USPS or Fedex/UPS it still goes to a lockbox right? Just making sure I can use the G-1450.
  9. Hey! I'm just putting together the last documents for my ROC application, aiming to file on Monday 9/20. I had forgotten how much work it is, but it's nice to be back on VJ at least. Wishing everyone good luck!
