New Prority Dates

Hi Everyone,

While I was a legal permanent resident, I had petitioned for my spouse and two sons for which the priority date was November 25, 2004.

However, I became US Citizen last year and right after I got my citizenship, I wrote a letter to NVC to upgrade my petition.

My spouse and the younger son will soon get their PR since there petitions are almost processed but I would like to know if the priority date of my elder son (28) will still remain same as before (Nov 25, 2009) or would it change as he is now considered to be in F2 category.

We had sent his G-325A form along with the applicable fees on April 15, 2009 after which I received receipt notice on April 20,2009.

From what is listed on the USCIS site, the current processing dates for U.S. citizen filing for an unmarried son or daughter over 21 is January 08, 2004

where as Permanent resident filling for an unmarried son or daughter over 21 is May 01, 2002.

I would like to know, which date would be applicable to our petition and based on that how long would it take for him to immigrate here?

Would appreciate it if someone can answer my query.

Regards

SeanP

Your son's PD does not change. It will remain Nov. 25,2004. A visa could be available to him about two years earlier now that you are a USC in contrast to when you were an LPR.

When you were an LPR, the petition for your 28 years old son was in the F2b category (LPR petitioning for an unmarried child over 21). Currently, F2b beneficiaries with a PD before July 1, 2001 are eligible for visas. The petition for your son is now in the F1 category (USC petitioning for an unmarried child) because you have informed USCIS that you are a USC. Currently, F1 beneficiaries with a PD before May 15, 2003 are eligible for visas. You should hear something from the NVC in about a 12-18 months to pay additional fees before your son can apply for a visa.
