Last week, the Department of State (DOS) released the July Visa Bulletin and a number of categories jumped significantly particularly for Chinese born persons. Included in the bulletin was a section providing a look into the final 2 months of this fiscal year and it is expected that many, if not all categories, will retrogress in August and September. As a result, if you are eligible for adjustment (I-485), you should file in July as you may not be able to file again until the new fiscal year starts in October.
