Back in September, United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (“USCIS”) was allowing applicants to file their I-485 applications for adjustment of status in both the employment-based and the family-based categories according to the earlier-in-time Filing Date Charts. Put another way, USCIS has been accepting Form I-485 filings for all prospective qualifying immigrants before a visa number is technically available. Green and Spiegel has been filing our clients’ files in light of this change for months, however, it appears that this will shortly come to an end. Learn more here.
