I applied for my GC under EB1 in Jan 2017. My case is still pending, and now the priority dates are retrogressing. Will this cause a delay in my GC being issued?


Unless the case is approved before the end of May 2017 (i.e. before the retrogressed dates go into effect), then yes, it will cause a delay. The GC could not be approved until the priority date is current again, which should occur in October 2017. (15.May.2017)
