    To have I 140 approved , do we have to wait for current status or does it only refer to green card /?

    Just went to the hospital to start the hiring process...a lot of paper work. And, at the hospital I encountered quite a few of other people also got their cards around the same time (they all filed in late Oct.). I guess the service center is processing this group of people all together.

    I don't think the I-140 will be affected by retrogression. It does not depend on the amt of visa numbers.

    You are right, I-140 wont be affected by retrogression. It will be approved (if all documents meet the criteria) regardless. But no one knows about I-485. Because I see here people say that even after Nov 1, their I-485s were reviewed. I wonder if anyone's I-485 was approved after Nov 1? If so, would you share???
    My only hope is that there are still some residual visa available and those who are here already may get their I-485 approved. My case status says that if 60 days passed and i did not hear anything, i have to call them. So my 60 days will be on Jan 1. If i dont hear none, I will call them on jan 2. I can request an inquire over the phone and I will get a written response. And then I ll let you know what they answer. If it is gonna be affected by retrogression, they should say that thre is no visa number available. On the other hand, if visa number is no available , what is the point to proceed I-485? That is kinda confused.
    Anyway, keep your fingers crossed. We'll get there!

    thanks for the answers,,, yes , there are many papers that you have to fill out before you will start working. But when you start, it is really not that bad///hospital where i work is totally computerized, which makes everybody life so much easier.

    Dear friends! Would you be so kind to clarify something for me...? If I apply for AOS for me and my relatives my husband will get work permit too?
    Thank you!

    My understanding is that if your husband applies for AOS as your derivative he will get an EAD as well (as long as they accept your I-485 applications.)

    (My husband got his EAD on the same day as I got mine.)

    I am kind of sharing the same feeling. I think there might still be some visas left. So, some of us might get really lucky to get the GC soon! Hope you will get yours before the New Year's day!

    unfortunately, the December Visa Bulletin published by the Dept of State showed schedule A visas as "Unavailable" which means USCIS run out of Schedule A Visas,it would be futile to request for a status inquiry with USCIS......Unavailable also means "we have to wait" in English, in Mandarin Chinese: "Mei Yo Le", in Filipino: "Ubos na, huwag na matigas ulo" :chuckle

    dont worry, IM ALSO STUCK WITH EAD....im also waiting for my wife's and my I-485 approval so that means we are all in the same Titanic boat :groupwelcome:

    Although it says "mei yo le", I will not be surprise to hear someone from our group might get it pretty fast. Let's wait and see. I would rather be in the boat of Queen Mary than Titanic
