I do not have visa number yet since my priority date is not yet current. What are the steps to do when I get a visa number?

Asked about 1 year ago - Three Rivers, MI

My labor certificate and I-140 have been approved. I am still waiting for a visa number since my priority date is not yet current. Once I get a visa number, what are the steps to do so I can get a greencard or immigrant visa? How much are the costs?

    Answered . The next step would be to process the I-485 to adjust status, I-765 for EAD, Advance Parole I-131, I-693 medical examination. Contact an immigration attorney for consultation to give you a detailed evaluation of your case.


  3. Answered . Mr. Krishna has given you the relevant forms to adjust status and Mr. Behar has given you info about filing fees. As noted by Ms. Brost, you can check for changes in the filing fees on the USCIS website. As noted by Ms. Ladouceur-Laurore, your employer's immigration lawyer should keep you informed. That said, there are several reasons I highly recommend you hire your own attorney.

    There are several good immigration attorneys in Kalamazoo. I'd be glad to meet you for a consultation in my office and, afterwards, give you a price quote on the attorney fees I'd require. I can even make recommendations for other immigration attorneys in town if you want a second opinion or price quote.
