Immigration Quiz

All EB (Employment Based Green Card) Categories Current!

The U.S. Department of State amazed everyone by making almost all employment-based (EB) categories current in its Visa Bulletin for July 2007. This is great news for many who have waited a long time to file their I-485 Adjustment of Status and consular processing cases.

After wonderful news in the June 2007 Visa Bulletin, when there was significant forward movement in the cutoff dates for the employment-based second preference (EB2) and the employment-based third preference (EB3) categories, there has been an unprecedented jump in almost all of the EB preference categories, which are now current! The only exception is the "Other Workers" category, which is currently unavailable.

This substantial forward movement of EB immigrant visa numbers is surprising. Many people whose priority dates have not been current for years will now be able to file their I-485 Adjustment of Status (AOS) cases, and many pending I-485/AOS cases and consular processing (CP) cases are potentially eligible for approval while the priority dates remain current.

We don't know how long this availability will last, so please contact our office to start preparing your adjustment of status application for filing.

Great immigration lawyer, very professional, knowledgeable and experienced. Jacob always answered my questions, e-mails and calls; great customer service from him and everybody at his office. I highly recommend Jacob, probably the best immigration lawyer out there. Plinio Franca
I trust you know how much all of us at the Spreckels Organ Society appreciate your incredible generosity in providing legal assistance with the visas required by the international artists last year during our International Summer Organ Festival. We consider it an honor that you and your firm provided this service, and were delighted to publicize your firm in our concert materials. George H.
That's good news on the approval of our 3 executive L1A visas. You fought a tough RFE, but we won. We are pleased to be working with you. KB is also bringing passports tomorrow again to the US Embassy in Tashkent for visa processing. We look forward to his arrival to the US. Sarvar
I wanted to thank again and again for obtaining my E1 Treaty Trader visa for me. The process was not easy, especially since our trade was all based on Technology. You knew the law, and was able to craft an outstanding file to be presented to Immigration. We are now ready to take the business to the next level. Toda Raba
Thanks for helping me with my marriage-based immigration case. You were very accessible - taking my calls, returning my messages and emails promptly. You answered all my questions. I was most impressed and relieved that you attended the immigration interview with me and my wife. You made the whole process streamline and simple. You really know your stuff, and you're a nice, friendly guy as well. Shane P.
