Spouses of green card holders can continue to apply for adjustment of status application together with the immigrant visa application during the month of September. F2A category (which is reserved for spouses and minor children of green card holders) was “Current” during the month of August. Pursuant to the September Visa Bulletin, the visa numbers for the F2A category will stay “Current” until the end of September. Although it is not a definitive conclusion, September Visa Bulletin also states that it is likely that a cut-off will be imposed for October which means these applications cannot be filed after September 30th. This cut-off will have no negative impact on those who have already filed their applications prior to September 30th. We urge all interested parties to file these applications before September 30th in order not to miss this rare opportunity.
