Adjustment of Status Filing Charts from the Visa Bulletin

Printer-friendly versionPDF version
If USCIS determines that there are more immigrant visas available for a fiscal year than there are known applicants for such visas, USCIS will state on this page that you may use the Dates for Filing Visa Applications chart. Otherwise, USCIS will indicate on this page that you must use the Application Final Action Dates chart to determine when you may file your adjustment of status application.

USCIS anticipates designating one of the two charts each month and linking to the relevant chart below within one week of DOS’ publication of the Visa Bulletin.

Hi,
1. I obtained my EAD/AP succesfully approved and AOS filed and accepted based on Dates Of Filing Chart. Will I have to give it up if the dates for EB2 India for this retrogresses? I know that folks that got EAD/AP through Final Action Dates get to keep renewing these benefits even after retrogression , how about folks like me that got it through Dates Of Filing chart.

2. Does Trump admin have the power to cancel this Date For Filing chart based benefits in the future just because Obama administration created it? I hope not...I have my H1 valid and just not using my approved EAD/AP till it is necessary (like H1 stamping rejection or Amendment rejection-at that time I plan to use EAD/AP.)

Thanks.

Once I-485 is timely filed, it remains pending even if the dates retrogress later. Reliance on reinterpreted dates for filing can be changed by Trump. But your filed I-485 cannot be disturbed.
