Concurrent filing of I-140 and I-485.

Although concurrent filing of the I-140 and the adjustment of status is very beneficial to most of our clients, there are numerous issues and complexities that remain unresolved. Moreover, this new rule combines different applications and immigration laws that further complicate matters. Such unresolved issues include whether the USCIS will adjudicate the I-140 first or both together and whether or not the annual immigrant visa quota will be filled. There are also questions of how the USCIS will apply the 180-day rule for I-485 applications based on labor certification or the outstanding researcher petition. These are just some of the possible problems and questions that could arise with this ever-changing rule. As a result, we keep abreast of new developments and changes in immigration law and policy so that we can guide our clients through any future policy changes and inform our clients of how to best use this policy for their benefit and to avoid future problems.

Concurrent Filing

For applicants who would like to file both their I-140 and I-485 at the same time, we offer the following services:

1) review your situation and identify any legal issues that may be important in your case;

2) work with you in discussion of the issues and provide the proper solution or legal opinion;

3) collect all the information and documents required for your I-140 and I-1485 applications;

4) fill out all the forms and prepares the supporting documentation for you;

5) submit your application to the USCIS and make status inquiries on your pending case when necessary;

6) timely respond to the USCIS request for additional evidence in your case and inform you of the status of your pending case at each stage, such as the fingerprint notification and the interview notice; and

7) keep you updated on new developments and changes to the immigration laws and provide advice on how to best handle these changes.

We advise most of our clients to take advantage of this new USCIS rule. However, there are inherent legal issues that you must be aware of. For example, some of our clients may become out of status if their I-140 application is subsequently denied.
