The Wait is Over! 245(i) grandfathering petitions allow for adjustment of status

At long last the wait is over for many people who have a petition filed before the sunset date of the 245(i) April 30, 2001. The July 2022 Visa Bulletin allows the sons and daughters of lawful permanent residents and U.S. citizens to file their adjustment of status applications.

For those with priority dates prior to April 30, 2001, who are married or the petitioner is their brother or sister, you may also be able to file your adjustment of status applications.

What should you do now?

  1. Find the approval notice of the I-130 and check your priority date
  2. If your priority date is between January 15, 1998 and April 1, 2001 gather proof you were in the United States on December 21, 2000.
  3. Contact me to make an appointment to discuss your case and verify that you are eligible to file an adjustment of status application.
