Mine is pending for 3 months in NSC. NSC is slower than TSC. From the people's experience that I know, TSC approves i485 before approving EAD. So I would say 2-3 months in TSC. NSC could be 5-6 months for i485 if no RFE.
I have been working at the same client as consultant for a very long time. The thing that comes to my mind is what happens if I lose my job. Let's say i can't find job for more than a month and company refuses to run payroll. What are the options?
No need to worry unless employer withdraw your petition. if they ask for employment verification letter, your employer must be able to provide one saying that they are going to hire you for permanent position after you receive your GC.
I have same question as mancini. I am in H1B and employer has already filed 140 and 485 in TSC, But my project is going to end in Dec 2nd week. As I am working in % basis, they are not going to pay me if I am out of project. So, my question is do we need to run payroll in H1B or not? Can I be in vacation until I find project?
I have been following trackitt.com when my application was in process and i have noticed most of the i-485 application for Nepal are taking approx. < 6 months. Mine was approved in 5 months and 29th days. It is for TSC, no idea for NSC though.
It has been 110 days waiting for i485 approval. Received EAD and advanced parole a month ago. Few months ago i485 process used to be quicker. People used to get GC within 90 days but now it is very very slow. It may pick up better next year if EB3 ROW don't get retrogress. Looks like there is a lot of application filled
