All About Priority Dates

Are you confused as to exactly when your client can retain an earlier priority date? What about the consequences of the petitioner naturalizing or the beneficiary marrying? What do you need to do when the derivative beneficiary ages out? If a petition is terminated or revoked, can it ever be reinstated? In this session, we will review how priority dates are established, how they can be lost, and under what circumstances they may be retained. We will also discuss the difference between the Visa Bulletin’s Chart A and Chart B, visa retrogression and cross-chargeability. And we will analyze the real waiting time behind the priority date – it may be much longer than you think.
