Question
Hello,

In the bulletin of August 2006, there is a visa retrogresstion of more than 3 years to January 1997 for Family First Preference. What will happen with cases from 1997 to 2001 before retrogression?

Thank you for your explanation.

Answer
During the month of August no new adjustment of status cases can be filed if the priroity date is not 1/97 or before. All pending cases at the local immigration office or consulate can not be approved if the filing date is not 1/97 or before.


Regards,

Robert
