Was I in proper status when I filed my Employment based I-485? (or) Can USCIS deny my I-485 because my H1 was pending >180days?

Asked almost 2 years ago - Dallas, TX

My H1 extension was pending since Mar 1, 2006 which eventually got denied in Jun 2009.
I applied for my EB I-485 in July 2007

    Lawyer agrees

    Talk to the company lawyer ... or pay for a consultation with one of your choosing.
