Completed: USCIS have completed processing application

If you are planning to file I-130 or I-485 application, the table above will give you an idea of how many applicants are ahead of you.

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. Exception is if application is preadjudicated then it would go by PD.

Please remember to update the tracker with any new data.The tracker includes I-130/NVC/I-485 information.
