Family Based Adjustment of Status Filings in November 2019

In the month of November 2019, USCIS is accepting adjustments for family petitions based on the filing date and not the final action priority dates. This is extremely important because you can file your adjustment of status application and obtain your work authorization between 1-4 years earlier than you otherwise would be able to. In the case of Lawful Permanent Residents filing for a spouse or child under the age of 21, the priority date is current in the month of November. It is important that you check your priority date and act immediately. Your adjustment of status must be mailed and received prior to the end of the month in order to qualify.
