  1. I had my bio-metrics appointment last Monday in NYC....fingers crossed now that the EAD comes through ASAP! I am actually interviewing for a new job as I am ready to leave my current employer.
  2. Interesting, I only just submitted my AOS last month with a priority date of July 10th. Fingers crossed this can be a quick turnaround rather than the estimated 8month time line that was on there previously.
  3. Hello there, Also filed this month. Adjusting from L-1B visa through my wife by filing all applications concurrently. Based in NYC but filed at Chicago lockbox. Looking for EAD asap as I'm tired of my existing job.

  4. Hello all - applying to adjust from L1B to GC. How does the below cover letter look, and do you think I have all required evidence covered off?

  6. Thank you sir! As an L1B holder- for form I-765... Question 1: I am applying for (a) Initial permission to accept employment or (c) Renewal of my permission to accept employment. I believe (a) is the correct answer i need to submit but i want to check with the wiser on this forum. Please confirm
  7. HI guys Random question - i've noticed on the I485 form that at the very top it states: Expires 06/30/2019....which was yesterday.... I've checked the USCIS website and this is the latest template for the form they have. What does this mean? I'd assume there is risk in using this?
  8. Thank you all for your wonderful contributions so far, very helpful. I have already made a start preparing the necessary forms. After reading a lot, I've learned you can complete a concurrent filing application (submitting the petition + I485 + all other information). Would anyone recommend this? How much time does this potentially save over the entire process? In this instance, on I485 form, what would I enter for the petition receipt? From what I've read this depends whether your I130 generates a visa number is immediately available (eg. if there are errors in this then you are delayed). Is this correct?
  9. It's 5 years long I believe, from 2018 to 2023. Do you think this causes an issue with the passport expiry date? How would this impact the AOS?
  10. Hello there, First up - i love this resource, so thank you all for sharing your experiences. Background The wife & I married last June, I managed to transfer to the US from the UK on a working L1B visa. My wife (american citizen) is pregnant and now we are expecting in August (Woohoo!), with that, I am looking to push my career forward therefore would like the right to work outside of my current company. Hence my application for adjustment of status. Questions Is this guide OK to follow for L1B AOS? https://www.visajourney.com/content/i130guide2/ Xmas 2019 - we are planning on returning to the UK with the newborn to visit my older relatives. If I am on an L1B, and applying for adjustment of status, does this cause any serious issues about travelling outside of the US while this is all processing? (eg. are we going to have to cancel our trip?) The important thing for me is getting the EAD - i've read conflicting information on potential timings on this, but does anyone have any tips to accelerate this? My UK passport expires in December 2020 - will this complicate anything? Are there any considerations or issues I haven't noticed yet, that you may be able to point out? I showed my wife this resource last night as she wanted to go the lawyer route. Sounds like money down the drain so going to attempt this alone with all of your support 😀 Thanks Ryan
