Once the I-140 is approved, if you applied for the I-485 concurrently then between 3-6 months usually if applied for after the approval of the I-140 perhaps 4-9 months but usually not too long.



thanks! Do you mean the fingerprinting or I-485 approval takes that long. I am worry about FP since I need to travel but as you said I-485 could take about a year.


I agree with my colleague
