Use the following Visa Bulletin charts to determine when to file your application for adjustment of status.
Your priority date is typically the date when your sponsor or employer filed the immigrant visa petition for you. However, there may be a delay if the petition was filed improperly. If a labor certification was needed with your visa petition, the priority date is generally the date the labor certification application was accepted for processing.
The following charts contain filing date information from U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS).
