I Visited US for 3 weeks on a visit visa to see my wife. Now we are planning to file for I-130. 


Should we file immediately after my return or should we wait for 45 to 60 days before we can file for I-130 ?

I am expecting my priority date to be current in the next month or 2 ( hopefully by September visa bulletin update).
I am currently in the US on L1 and applying for Adjustment of status for an F4 category. Can you please advise when exactly can I actually send my papers? Do I have to wait for the visa bulletin to show that my priority date is current before I send my documents? Or can I apply a months or so in advance in anticipation of the date being current?

Please advise.

Appreciate your help!

arrowQuestion on Package 3 from Embassy

Just a quick question: Do you normally receive an email before or as you receive package 3 from the Embassy?


We might be moving homes and still would have access to the old mailbox (I figured if I change the address then it might be an additional hassle and further prolong the response time from the Embassy in Abu Dhabi - which is apparently already slow). So I kept the address as is. If I receive an email it will make our lives easier as at least we can know when to expect to receive the package in the mail...

The American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA) has announced that it will now begin to issue a report each month intended to provide reliable predictions and analysis regarding the movement of cutoff dates in the visa bulletin. These reports will be based on discussions with Charles Oppenheim, Chief of the Visa Control and Reporting Division, U.S. Department of State (DOS), following the release of each month's visa bulletin. The predictions made in this month's AILA report.

Family Second Preference "A" (FB2A) Likely to Advance Soon

Chief Oppenheim predicts that the long-stagnant FB2A cutoff dates will move forward in September 2014. As of the August 2014 Visa Bulletin, the FB2A cutoff date stands at March 15, 2011 for Mexico, and May 1, 2012 for all other countries of chargeability. In the upcoming September 2014 Visa Bulletin, these dates could advance, "possibly as far as late fall 2012."
