January 2022: Adjustment of Status Filing Charts

by Rabindra Singh

For Employment-Based Preference Filings:

Except employment-based fifth preference adjustment of status applications based on the Regional Center Program, USCIS will use Dates for Filing chart in the Department of State Visa Bulletin for January 2022 for all employment-based preference categories.

Note that USCIS will not accept any new employment-based fifth preference adjustment of status applications based on the Regional Center Program until that program is reauthorized. 

For Family-Sponsored Filings:

In the F2A category, there is a cutoff date on the Dates for Filing chart. However, the category is “current” on the Final Action Dates chart. This means that applicants in the F2A category may file using the Final Action Dates chart in the Department of State Visa Bulletin for January 2022.

For all the other family-sponsored preference categories, applicants must use the Dates for Filing chart in the Department of State Visa Bulletin for January 2022
