Removal proceedings terminated. I-485 filed through Texas Service Center EOIR, how to get it transferred to my FO / USCIS?
Marriage based GC. I was in removal proceedings (over stayed my visa B1/B2) before I got married. Lawyer started our case by only filing I-130 on Jun/20. Got it approved on Aug/21. We then filed I-485 through Texas Service Center EOIR on Oct/21 and with the I-130 approved my lawyer filed to get my removal proceedings terminated. Immigration judge terminated my case on Mar/22 and nothing has changed since then, my I-485 case status still only shows "Case Was Received" since Nov/21. My lawyer said that the Immigration lawyer responsible for my case needs to transfer it to USCIS field office (Boston, MA). I was wondering if anyone had a similar case and if that's how it works? Our lawyer has made several mistakes throughout the whole process so I'm not too confident if that's the best approach. Heard some people mention that the court doesn't transfer these cases. It's been 5 months of nothing and I have no idea how long it usually takes and if thats even the best way to go about it.
