Information for “Green Card Waiters”

Posted: May 27th, 2010 | Author: | Filed under: National News | No Comments »

We have a number of clients who have filed employment based adjustment of status applications before August 2007. These applications are on hold because the government used up all 140,000 employment based green cards that are available for the year. For these “green card waiters”, the USCIS recently indicated that the total adjustment of status application pending and “pre-adjudicated” at USCIS Service Centers as of 03/31/2010 is as follows: § Nebraska Service Center: 95,288 applications preadjudicated and were awaiting visa numbers (Only 19,434 pending) § Texas Service Center: 85,516 applications preadicated and awaiting were visa numbers (Only 21,620 pending) This information indicates that, without changes by Congress, it could be another year before the priority date advances to August 2007 or later. Remember, the priority date is the date that the PERM Labor Certification was filed, in most cases.
