Estimate time of Approval for I-485
Hello. I petition my Mom back on May 2022. We filed both I-130 and I-485 since she’s already here in the US visiting. By November 2022 they sent us a RFE and so we did and we received the decision by April 2023 stating that I-130 (Petition for Alien Relative) has been approved but the I-485 (AOS) was denied. We don’t know what valid reason made them to come up with that decision, but by July 22,2023 We sent another I-485 again and this time we used a Legal Representative. So until now the status of the application says “Case Was Received And A Receipt Notice Was Sent”. We received a letter not long after that update stating they will reuse the Biometrics from Past Year’s to current application so I assume it will expedite the process. The waiting period is hard especially when you need to do something. Hayys. Can someone please help me. 🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻

@Donna Gagui I am glad you got a legal representative. you will be ok. this could go quick or may take a few months. the best part is that you have a I130 approved. keep the faith.
