USCIS Suspends Final Adjudication of Employment-Based Adjustment Applications for the Remainder of FY 2015 | USCIS

Starting today, USCIS will suspend final adjudication of employment-based Form I-485 applications (Form I-485, Application to Register Permanent Residence or Adjust Status) because the Department of State reports that the statutory cap has been reached for the employment-based preference categories for fiscal year (FY) 2015.

This suspension applies to all employment-based adjustment applications pending with USCIS through September 30, 2015 (the remainder of FY2015).

USCIS will continue to accept adjustment of status applications that are filed when the foreign national’s priority date is earlier than the cut-off date published in the September Visa Bulletin for his or her preference category and country of birth/chargeability. USCIS will resume final adjudication of employment-based adjustment applications beginning October 1, 2015, when visa numbers are again available.

Applicants filing Form I-485 on or after October 1, 2015, should review the “When to File” section on the Visa Bulletin Info Web page to determine whether they are eligible to file Form I-485.

Hi Guys, despite lack of possibility, please notify this group if you happen to notice positive changes on your status.

My response package was sent 9/22, was received 9/24, status changed to response received on 9/25. I am happy because of the receipt status change.

Likely that we might need to wait for another 4-6 months, buddy!

Default October 2015 Visa Bulletin Revision

The surprises never end with USCIS.

Today (9/22/2015) it revised previously published (on 9/9/2015) October 2015 Visa Bulletin. Most impacted, are groups of EB2 India and EB2 China who were planning on submitting for EAD and AP, based on their pending I-485. For India EB2, it rolled back 2 years (July 2011 to July 2009), and approximately 1.5 years for China. The move is particularly demeaning because, those EB2 I and EB2C who were eligible for application likely would have applied for the EAD and AP processes, and had engaged lawyers and surgeons for completing the processes - AN EFFORT AND RESOURCE THAT WILL BE A COMPLETE WASTE.

Several forums are in flames about the roll back and are planning for action against the move. Please join our fellow brothers even though you may not be directly impacted, and show your solidarity.

Yes, IV is going after it.
I would like to see if EB3-I PD reversal can be part of this as well.

Congrats.

Looks like they are still approving one-off cases even now. Lets hope few more of us will get lucky before they retrogress on the 1st.

Well, if "KiranKashi" shares his/her happiness as "RKMARCH22", somebody does not believe and asking for proof.

What a world we live in

Do not expect approval for at the least another 3 months. :-).
Unless you are very lucky to get randomly picked up... which is infact a possibility.
