While not a major issue as we are less than 1 week away from October 1 and the beginning of the new fiscal year, USCIS has announced that they have met the statutory cap for Employment based cases so will not be adjudicating any more I-485 applications until October 1, the beginning of the new fiscal year. They will continue to accept filings based upon the September Visa Bulletin throughout September, so you can still file your I-485 at this time.
Please remember, as always, this blog does not offer legal advice. If you need legal advice, consult with a lawyer instead of a blog. Thank you.

I am an immigration attorney with over 20 years of experience. I was graduated from Brandeis University undergrad in 1990 and then spent a year traveling around Central America. In 1991 I began attending the University of Baltimore School of Law and was graduated in 1994. I began working in Immigration Law in 1998 when I joined a small law firm and, in 2000 opened my own firm with my law partner Ed Leavy. Sadly, Ed passed away in 2011. I am still a partner in my own firm with my current partner Brendan Delaney. Our firm is Frank & Delaney Immigration Law, LLC.
