Important Update for Family Petitioners
Don’t wait another day!
If you’re trying to immigrate your spouse or unmarried minor children (visa category F2A) to the US from Mexico, your priority date might be current…
But it may not be for long!
USCIS is so overwhelmed with applications that it has begun retrogressing priority dates. This means that in at least one visa category, a priority date that became current, is no longer current. In other words, people who finally made it to the front of the line are now being told that the line is going to stop moving and they might have to keep waiting for as long as a year before immigration lets the line start up again.
Don’t let this happen to you!
If you have an I-130 approved for a husband, wife or unmarried minor child from Mexico, it’s important that you take action NOW on your visa application.
If USCIS retrogresses priority dates in the F2A category, then waiting even just a couple more months to get started on your case could mean waiting another year before your priority date is current again.
Call your attorney today if you think this may apply to you! If you don’t have an attorney yet, you can call us to schedule a new-client appointment.

Don’t believe us? Here’s a quote from the website indicating that dates are likely to move backwards:
“MEXICO F2B: The level of demand during recent months has been extremely heavy, in particular for cases filed with the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services for adjustment of status processing. Therefore, it has been necessary to retrogress the February cut-off date to May 1, 1993 in an attempt to hold number use within the annual per-country limit. Further retrogression of this cut-off date cannot be ruled out.
MEXICO F2A: Continued heavy demand in the Mexico F2A category will require the retrogression of this cut-off date to hold number use within the annual numerical limit. Such action is likely to occur within the next few months.”
