Since USCIS goes by last receipt date, if you are going to file your I-485 (or just filed), you will be placed behind this queue (even if your PD is before these applicants). Exception is if application is preadjudicated then it would go by PD.

Note: USCIS also updated their processing time few days ago. Please see the link on right side of this page (under USCIS Links) or the GC Calculator page.

USCIS also released latest I-485 pending inventory as of January 2014. Based on numbers, most likely the data is as of January 3, 2014.


  1. Hello Amazon,
    Based on the latest 485 inventory data, will Eb3Row continue move forward? Thanks

    1. I too would like to know the answer to this question. I missed it by only 3 weeks in the March VB

  2. The latest I-485 pending inventory the data should not be as of January 1, 2014. Jan 1st is holiday, they can not accept the applications. There are some numbers are showing in Jan 2014 of EB1,4,5 and Mar 2012 of EB3

    1. Thank you. I have updated the date from January 1 to January 3.

  3. There's something fishy about the recently released. I-485 inventory stats. The cutoff date for EB3-ROW was moved from Oct 2011 to April 2012 in January 2014, so it makes sense that there are some pending I-485s with priority dates between Oct 2011 and Mar 2012. The fact that the numbers are low (3 to 10 I-485s in each of those months) indicates that the data were gathered early in January when very few people had had a chance to mail in their I-485s. However, there's a very odd and inexplicable spike for I-485s with priority dates in Jan 2012. They're reporting that 1,698 such applications were received by USCIS, which is staggeringly high. I am betting my money that some sort of mistake has been made.
