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.

Douglas, were you ever arrested for staying beyond the visa time limit? How did you have the removal proceedings? I'm sorry to want to know about this, but I have a situation similar to yours.

@w moo I only had the option to upload documents with our i-130 under my wife's uscis account. I don't have that option now with the I-485 for some reason.

@Dan I never got arrested. I just got a letter several months later after getting the extension denied saying I had a court date.

@j's case ol I don't know what you mean by a waiver. He filed to get my removal proceedings terminated by a judge if thats what you mean.

people are messing up , you should not file 485 with uscis when you are in proceedings just follow pre order instructions from uscis website.

same here was on removal processing … I file 130 first got approved at January 3. then you have to close case with the court … so I hired lawyer just to deal with court removal case were closed at April this year and only then after you apply for 485. I applied at begging of may … National benefit center(the worst (()got my docs from Chicago … everything was fast so far … did biometrics June 10 now showing - case actively reviewed by uscis, just waiting … I was hoping that my FO will got my case because they are fast, but unfortunately you can’t choose it or move it there (((

I have also come across testimonies on this platform, from those whose I-485 got approved, while still on removal proceedings.
Alena MezJul 27, 2022
well I don’t think so … any lawyer can tell you … you CANT have 2 opened cases with Uscis … it’s impossible!

@Alena Mez yes you can I have two my lawyer told me it's ok whichever one they reach to first they close the other so the other day I call uscis I ask the agent he told me the say thing my lawyer said
Alena MezJul 28, 2022
not when you have your case in court and in my case I had 7 courts in total and decision prosecution description … and my friend just had court scheduled for next year and his stupid lawyer applied for green card in this airy and got green card denied ((( now he hired normal lawyer who can do joint motion for him … and he will spend more money $1225 and plus new lawyer, because uscis never return money even if they denied case

uscis normally administratively close your case why they deny his that's what they did with mine so you can reopen after dismissed from the judge

@si l do you know what kind of letter he sent? my lawyer said he emailed the immigration lawyer but haven't heard anything back yet. But never mentioned about sending a letter.... I've called USCIS this past Monday explaining my situation and said I needed to schedule an infopass appointment in order to give them my termination letter personally so they could transfer my case. The officer said they would call me back in 30 days to schedule it. I've seen some people mentioned that approach here and thought I would give it a try after confiming with my lawyer if that was a possibility in my case. Hopefully that gets it transfered or at least gets their attention to do something about it.
