Topic: On Wednesday, September 9, 2015, United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), in coordination with the Department of State (DOS), announced that it was “revising the procedures for determining visa availability for applicants waiting to file for employment-based or family-sponsored preference adjustment of status.”
As a result, people otherwise eligible and present in the U.S. can file for “adjustment of status” and get interim work and travel documents significantly earlier than when their place in the queue for limited visa numbers is set for green card approval.
Join us for a special one-hour webinar to discuss the implications of this new approach to the timing of the ability to take the last steps toward permanent residence for EB-5 investors.
