Adjustment of Status Processing time

Green card adjustment of status form i485 processing time is updated daily using the official USCIS processing times and data shared by real applicants in various forums and trackers online.

Travelling while i485 application is pending is not recommended if you do not have any other valid visa to re-enter USA.

I-485 Concurrent Filing with I-130

Form I-485 is also the next step in the family-based green card process after submitting Form I-130 (Petition for Alien Relative). If the sponsored husband or wife is present in the United States, you can file I-130 and I-485 together as โ€œconcurrent” application.

Electronic benefit transfer (EBT) is an electronic system that allows state welfare departments to issue benefits via a magnetically encoded payment card.

Case Outside Normal Processing Time

If your โ€˜case received dateโ€™ is before the date (worst case) mentioned above, you should raise a service request with USCIS to check why your case has been delayed. This could mean your case is taking longer than other similar cases and may be stuck in administrative processing.

    hi Anil,
    I had a speed traffic ticket few years before and that was contested and dismissed by my lawyer.
    I filed i485 last month and did not include anything related to this ticket.

    1) Is there any issue for adjustment?
    2) Does this ticket come up in the background check?

      If the ticket was dismissed, then it should not show up in the records.
