If you are ROW 12 to 24 months after filing both I140 and I485.

File i-140 in premium and you will get your approval within 2 weeks. 485 will take 14-16 months approx

There are a lot of factors actually - filing category (EB1, Eb2 etc.), service center etc. My 485/EAD/AP got filed this April but i’m still waiting for biometrics.

When did your company file for PWD? Thanks!

EB2, EB3….

OP on a best case scenario you may even be holding a GC in 6-7 months. I know a few recent cases here in LA. Assuming you were not born in India or China of course

Wow this is amazing I cant believe this!!! I’m from eastern europe.

Me too!!! Congrats!!!

If you file for premium processing you should get your I140 approval in 2 weeks. If you’re EB1 you could get your GC as early as 6-8 months post I485 filing depending on the service center.

I’m on H1B actually... do they still do interviews? 2 weeks unreal

Congrats dude ..... from some one who has a life time wait for GC😎
