New rule allows for Adjustment of Status will help thousands

Effective October 1, 2015, an executive order from the President will allow  thousands of immigrants and their spouses and children with backlogged priority dates in either employment or family based categories to apply for adjustment of status.   The best thing about this rule is that the immigrants will be allowed to file for adjustment of status even though their priority dates are not yet current.     Obviously, this may help immigrants in back-logged categories.    Stay tuned for further details once the actual new rule is published.
