USCIS Confirms F2A Family-Based Immigration Category is Current in July 2019

F2A Family-Based Immigration

USCIS has clarified that the F2A family-based immigration second preference category, reserved spouses and unmarried children under the age of 21 of permanent residents, is current in July 2019. 

In the July 2019 visa bulletin, the F2A category listed as current under the final action chart for all countries. However, the same F2A category has a March 8, 2019 cutoff date in the dates for filing chart. 

This highly unusual scenario raised the question whether individuals with approved I-130 petitions in the F2A category with priority dates later than March 8, 2019 could file I-485 adjustment of status applications. USCIS clarified on its website that everyone with an approved F2A immigrant visa petition may file to adjust states. Therefore, in July 2019 concurrently filing of the I-130 immigrant petition and I-485 adjustment of status application is possible for foreign nationals who are lawfully present in the United States.
