A new government regulation that will affect green card applicants is scheduled to go into effect on October 15th. Here is what you need to know.
Under immigration law, in general someone who is deemed likely to become a "public charge" is barred from receiving a green card.
Have you been “waiting in line” for a green card to become available in your preference category?
You can check the U.S. Department of State Visa Bulletin for August 2019 to see if your priority date is current next month.
USCIS has determined that in August, the Dates for Filing Chart must be used for family-sponsored green cards, with the exception of F2A category applicants, who may use the Final Action Dates chart. The Final Action Dates Chart must be used for employer-sponsored green cards.
A new government policy makes it possible for your green card or naturalization interview to be scheduled outside of your normal USCIS jurisdiction.
U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) has recently announced that it will begin “eProcessing” cases. The official announcement states that “eProcessing will be a complete digital experience, from applying for a benefit, to communicating with USCIS, through receiving a decision on a case.” The hope is that this new system will “improve decision timeliness, increase transparency during the application process, and accelerate the availability of online filing for all immigration benefits.”
