Key Family Immigration News

Green Card Suspension – Impact Zone
April 23rd, 2020

Type: Family AND Employment based (as well as the Lottery);
Process: Consular Processing (NOT Adjustment of Status);

Family Categories: All Family Preferences (F1, F2A, F2B, F3, F4), as well as IR-P (parents of U.S. Citizens);
Employment Categories: All, except EB-5;

Who exactly? If your Interview at a U.S. Consulate abroad has not taken place yet (or if your interview took place, but you did not get your passport back with the Immigrant Visa), you are impacted.
What about ‘temporary’ Visas? Not impacted.

What about challenges in Courts?
The order will be challenged. An injunction lifting the order is not certain however, considering that the Supreme Court re-affirmed the President’s Authority to determine who could enter the United States during the ‘travel ban’.
But this order mentions ‘the economy’ as the reason, so the Presidential authority is much weaker than if ‘pandemic’ or national security’ had been used as a reason.
Immigration Planner’s prediction is that this suspension will be lifted by a U.S. Circuit Judge through an injunction within the next two to three weeks (this is a prediction, not a fact).

USCIS suspends all in-person services until at least April 1, 2020
March 17th, 2020

USCIS domestic field offices will send notices to applicants and petitioners with scheduled appointments and naturalization ceremonies impacted by this closure. USCIS asylum offices will send interview cancellation notices and automatically reschedule asylum interviews. When the interview is rescheduled, asylum applicants will receive a new interview notice with the new time, date and location for the interview. When USCIS again resumes normal operations, USCIS will automatically reschedule Application Support Center appointments due to the office closure. You will receive a new appointment letter in the mail. Individuals who had InfoPass or other appointments at the field office must reschedule through the USCIS Contact Center, once field offices reopen to the public.

I have been following the trend about final action date of visa bulletin as predicted by immigration Planner and behold. The prediction has been very accurate so far. I don’t have cause to doubt it’s subsequent prediction that span through year 2021.

Many thanks. I wish all applicants and petitioners worldwide know about you. You are too good.

Mi esposo y yo habíamos decidido no solicitar los servicios de un abogado porque era realmente costoso, sin embargo, completar todos los formularios para mi proceso de Ajuste de Estatus estaba siendo realmente un dolor de cabeza. No sabíamos bien a bien por dónde comenzar, estábamos llenos de dudas y ansiosos. Afortunadamente, encontramos a Immigration Planner que fueron muy amables y eficientes. Llenar en línea los formularios fue bastante sencillo e intuitivo. Además, ellos siempre estuvieron pendientes de cualquier duda para resolverla a la brevedad posible y de manera eficaz. No tengo duda alguna para recomendarlos, ya que hacen que te sientas seguro y respaldado por alguien que tiene amplio conocimiento de lo que está haciendo.
