Unique situation: Filing for GC when PD is current in Final Action Date


Our PD is June 29, 2011. Because of Covid-19, PERM process got stalled with spouse’s new employer before recruitment. It got reinitiated last year and the cycle will complete only by middle of this year. For this reason, we couldn’t file i485 adjustment of status despite PD being current (even in the final action chart) for the past one year.

How does it work when you do concurrent filing of i140 and i485 to get GC EAD in this kind of situation after getting PERM approval this year ? i.e. Date is already current in the final action chart. What are the steps involved ? How long does it take ? Do you still get i485 EAD or directly GC EAD ?

Thanks a ton,
