U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services has announced that in December it will follow the State Department’s Dates for Filing chart, as published in the December Visa Bulletin, to determine whether applicants are eligible to file for adjustment of status.
Application Dates for Filing for Employment-Based Preference Cases:
Family-based immigrants will also use the Dates for Filing chart applicable to family-sponsored immigrants, which was also published in the December Visa Bulletin.
BAL Analysis: December will mark the third straight month in which USCIS will use the Dates for Filing chart. This is good news for a number of employment-based immigrants, as the Dates for Filing chart contains more progressive cutoff dates than the Final Action Dates chart, especially in EB-1 categories.
