I-140 Still pending

  1. Hi, suzanne,

    My sister's I140 is approved within just 45 days. We both had filed I140 on September 29 and she got her approval on November 13. Mine is still pending. What could be the reason? I am worried about the result.

    Best Regards,

    maybe there are two different persons doing your papers.. that is a posibility

    Same petitioner or different company?

    It could be any of a number of things, perhaps they forgot to include something with your documents, suggest that you follow up with the attorney that submitted your papers.

    Soem take months to get approval, others get them in just a few weeks, do you also know which center is processing your papers? Just because you both filed the same day, they could be in two separate service centers and that also makes a difference.

    Texas is faster right now, but no one has any choice as to where their petitions will get sent for actual processing.

    Dear Suzanne,

    Both petitions were filed on the same day (29th Sept.) by same attorney and both of them were with Texas Centre. My sister's Receipt Number is XXXX....266 and mine is XXXX....341. I have contacted my agent and attorney. They said nothing to worry about and explained that each case is reviewed individually and some are getting quick approval while others take more time. We had submitted all required documents and the attorney has not yet received any "request for more evidence".

    Thank you

    Your attorney is correct, each file is reviewed individually. No news in this case, is good news.
