    Yes, your employer can pay to move up the visa date. Just bring cash to the nearest USCIS office to where you live.

    Aroha,

    Quick questions regarding my case ...

    Can my previous employer of States (i worked about 14 years and my I-140 was also approved for the same employer) help me in this I-130 case.

    1. Will that make the process faster??
    2. Or Can that only be a plus point during interview???
    3. If my employer can really help, what does he have to do and do i have to file anything now or wait till my application comes up (which you anticipated about 1.5-2.5 yrs).

    Thanks for your reply in advance.

    Aroha,

    I am a USC. The time period you indicated is for GC holders (PRs) not USCs. Am I wrong? </div></BLOCKQUOTE>

    You are wrong, unfortunately. That's the time-frame for unmarried sons/daughters of USC's. If you were a green card holder, you could tack on another 2-3 years - they're in the 2B preference category.

    I'm going to assume he is unmarried, so he's in the first preference category. That's the first line of the first table.

    So, for all but Mexico & the Philippines, they're currently processing applications from June 2004. Mexico is Sept 1992 and Philippines is Jan 1994.

    Assuming your son is not in the latter two countries, you would be looking at around another six years.

    Could someone help out and let me know how long roughly will it take for my son to get a visa number. I tried the visa bulletin website and I'm still not clear on that. Thanks!

    Decent, you can find the current visa bulletin right here. If your son is unmarried, he would be in the first preference category.

    You have a way to go before a number is available, unfortunately.

    If they're currently processing applications from 1999, it would be another year or two before a visa number is available. After that it takes, on average, a year to get through the process.

    I-130 submission date was april 2001, but INS date currently that they are running is 1999 ... so maybe its another year or two but should i fill out I-485 now or not??? </div></BLOCKQUOTE>

    I-485 is only for those that are adjusting status within the US. You're not eligible for that since you're in Pakistan. The NVC will contact your sponsor once a visa number is available and your application is ready to be processed.
