Recent changes to the Visa Bulletin issued by the U.S. Department of State open the possibility for foreign workers subject to priority date backlogs to file adjustment of status applications well before their priority dates become current. This advance filing creates greater job flexibility for individuals in the green card process. This seminar reexamines the permanent portability provisions of AC21 §106(c) and its application to today's increasingly mobile workforce.
