I have a question regarding the pre-adjudication of I-485 applications.
We (my wife and I) filed for I-485 under EB3 category in 2007. The case is with Nebraska service center. The status is "Initial Review " for me. My wife got one RFE asking for proof of marriage which we submitted before the deadline given. Her status is "Request for Evidence Response Review". We have travelled overseas numerous times and returned using Advance Parole.
I recently saw a news article that USICS is pre-adjudicating recently filed I-485 applications. Any idea why USCIS is not pre-adjudicating older applications first?
Is there any way to find out why my case was not pre-adjucating - email the service center or opening a SR? Having filed for 485 in 2007, I'm kinda anxious.
Don't believe everything you read.
You can attempt to contact the service center or make a USCIS appoinment and inquire but you may need to just wait. Your other alternative is to hire an experienced immigration attorney who regularly handles cases similar to yours.
If she just got the RFE, it sounds like there is movement on your cases. Is your priority date current? Have you spoken with the attorney who handles this for your company?
