Very positive and they are filing the basis transfer once the EB2 date is current



Did anyone get approvals/GC so far with this approach?

Reading through forums approvals are random, everyone waiting on guidance and the right thing to do.

I know one person who got it in 2.5 months after filing the Basis Transfer

Is downgrading much easier then upgrading?

Yes process wise as you don’t need to file perm or i140 for downgrade. For upgrade you have to file perm and i140 which takes time

A partner asked me to review some draft financial statements that he did “because he could use an extra set of eyes on it” and I agreed that I’d review it and send it back. So I used a red ink pen and marked the crap out of the draft and now he’s asking me why was I trying to be funny 😂🤣 but I wasn’t “trying to be funny”. I was providing the same level of due diligence as he would expect from me. 💁‍♀️
