NewsFlash! Only Final Action Dates Can Be Used in May 2017

The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) announced today that only the cutoff dates in the ‘final action’ (FA) chart of the May 2017 Visa Bulletin may be used for purposes of applying for adjustment of status. This applies to both employment-based and family-based cases. This is especially disappointing because, as previously indicated, the visa bulletin for May included some favorable movement in the ‘dates for filing’ (DF) chart for several oversubscribed categories. As of yet, no information has been provided as to what caused this unusual movement in the DF chart.
