AN ENDELMAN TIP ON GETTING YOUR I-140 RECEIPT IN TIME IF YOU'RE NOT READY TO FILE THE ADJUSTMENT UNTIL AUGUST

Rate this Entry

It seems like an obscure issue, but given the number of people who have been emailing, it's worth a separate post. Gary Endelman, one of the more creative thinkers in immigration law and a frequent ILW.com columnist sent me a note after reading a question in the comments on the blog. I'm just flattered Gary finds my blog worth the bother.



Anyway, we have discussed in the FAQ and the comments the need to establish a priority date before July 31st in order to file an adjustment in August (assuming we don't hear otherwise from USCIS). Some people are going to be in a bind to get the I-485 ready to go that fast and the only way to get a priority date for some is to file the I-140. But you need an I-140 receipt to file the adjustment petition and the I-140 receipt can take forever to get. So what to do?



File the I-140 electronically, of course. You get a receipt right off your own printer. Then submit the I-485 with that receipt. Brilliant and so simple. Thanks Gary for the great tip!

    Hi Greg,
    In my understanding, USCIS mails out the physical receipt notice to I-140 applications efiled.
    If the I-140 efilers can submit I-485 with this printout from the computer screen without physical I-140 receipt, does it mean that those who who filed I-140 by mail can submit I-485 with the I-140 receipt number only that can be obtained from the cleared check?
    Could you please clarify this?
    Thank you...

    Hi Greg,

    What about the ones that submitted on 30th June (received July 2nd) both I-140/I-485 for concurrent filing under EB2-NIW? Do we have to e-file again the I-140 since we still have not received a receipt notice?
