EB3 Green Card Approval for Nepalese Systems Analyst in Minnesota
CASE: I-485 based on Approved I-140 (EB-3)
Our client is a chemist from Nepal, who is currently working at an IT consulting company who was willing to petition him for a third-preference petition (I-140). He has maintained his status as an H-1B visa holder in the United States. He had an approved I-140 petition which was filed by his current employer and this I-140 petition’s priority date was December 22, 2014.
In June 2016, he contacted our office and retained us for his and his wife’s I-485 adjustment of status applications. Our office filed an I-485 adjustment of status application for our client and his wife on July 19, 2016. Everything went smoothly and the receipt notices and fingerprint appointment came on time.
However, on September 30, 2016, the USCIS issued Request for Evidence for our client and his wife’s adjustment of status application. The USCIS requested our clients to submit more evidence to demonstrate their lawful maintenance in the United States after their last admission to the U.S. Our office prepared and filed the Response to RFE to USCIS on December 13, 2016 along with documentary evidence that our clients provided.
Eventually, on January 12, 2017, the USCIS Nebraska Service Center approved our client’s and his wife’s adjustment of status applications. They are now green card holders.
