Employment Based Green Cards
Thank you for the Continuing Support
Rajiv and his team (Amrita, Anna, etc) go above and beyond when taking on a case. I've experienced it as a student seeking Visa support and as the employer working on an associate's case. I highly recommend their services and look forward in continuing working with their team. Thanks guys!
Today I have got denial on my I-485. Reason stated was "According to Visa Bulletin in effect on the date this application was filed , a visa was not available based on your established priority date and specific preference category" My category is EB2. Date of filing for this category is 1st July 2009. My priority date is 10th December 2008. I filed 485 application on 1/19/2016 and got receipt notice on 1/29/2016 I did my finger printing on 03/16/2016 based on USCIS schedule I and my family members also got EAD on 03/23/2016 I was surprised to see today’s denial reason. I filed 485 application based on Dates for Filing .e. 1st July 2009 for EB2 category. Not sure why they denied my case since Final action date is not current but I am sure I am eligible to file my application based on date of filing. Is there any way to appeal on this decision ? If appeal gets denied again is there any impact on my current H1B status ?Rajiv and were compiled and reported by our editorial team from comments and blog on immigration.com
