  • need help.complication. very urgent

    I was working for a company A since March 1999. Started GC in Dec 1999 in EB3 category. Labor cert. was approved, I filed I -140 in 2000. Unfortunately lost job in August 2001. Managed to Join another company B in August 2001. After joining company B, within 15 days, heard from company A's attorney that my I-140 application has been approved. Fortunately company A agreed to continue the GC process. Company A Filed I-485 in October 2001 for me & my wife. Since then we have completed finger printing, received EAD card & advance parole. Unfortuantely one week back I received a letter form company A's attorney that they can not represent me any more, since I am not employed currently with them. They have informed INS accordingly. I was close to INS reviewing my papers in couple of months. Do I have any chances? Please suggest any way that you can think of. I do not have much time left on H1B(less than a year) to start a new process. Do not know what to do? Please help. Please let me know if I have any possibilities of completing this process.The letter that I received from company A, does not say they have revoked the I-140 or I-485. It only says they can not represent me as lawyer and informed same to the INS. So I think my application is not revoked.

      I appears that you can use provisions of AC21 portability act. It may be a good idea to hire your own immigration attorney to complete the process.

      Good luck.

        Thank you very much for the reply.
        Should I wait for the RFE from the INS to use the AC-21? Or Should I act right away & file the AC-21. I was wondering instead of complicating the case further would it be good idea to wait till RFE. May be the application might still go thru without an RFE assuming that INS would not act against the application just because there is no attorney representation hoping that my earlier attorney has not tried to damage the application in their letter to INS. Please advise. Although I am trying to seek advise from other attorneys in the town.

        Is there a possibility that INS might try to adjudicate the application without giving a RFE and a chance to file the AC-21. When should i expect to receive the RFE? The INS must have received the letter last week already.

        Do you happen to know any reliable & good attorney who gives advise thru email or chat. I am willing to pay the fees. It is becoming hard to run around the town to the offices of attorneys.And attorneys in my town are not that good. It will be hard to locate an attorney in my town who has had experience of using AC21.

        Thanks

          Hello,
          here are you located?
          You really need an attorney who can assist you through this. I know one in Florida. He also offers telephone consultation $ 150.00/hour, consultation fee will be deducted from your attorney's fee if he takes your case. He is board certified in immigration law. I can strongly recommend him.
