The Wall Street Journal is reporting that the CIS will shortly announce that it is allowing Adjustment of Status cases to be accepted. On the other hand nothing has happened and there is no definitive information about how Consular Processed cases will be impacted.

HLG reminds its clients to comply with these Q&As from our recent Immigration Alert:

What does this means for foreign nationals who planned on filing I-485s in July 2007?

HLG recommends that all foreign nationals who planned on filing I-485s in June take two actions:

1. Have your medical appointments completed. Medical appointments can back up quite quickly. Therefore we urge people to complete their medicals.

2. Send in your documents to HLG. HLG’s I-485 Step By Step Guide has a list of documents that we need for all I-485 filing. HLG will not begin preparing the I-485 at this time, but we still recommend that you send us all of the items on the list.HLG I-485 Step By Step Guide:

What does this mean for foreign nationals who planned on filing via Consular Processing?

We urge all foreign nationals to attend consular appointments. The Consulates are clearly issuing visa stamps to those with appointments.
