Request for earlier priority date

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Has this happened to anyone?

We received a letter dated last week that our "request for earlier priority date" has been approved. We did not submit any request to NVC. The "new" priority date is in 2008. We weren't even married then. What does that mean? What will happen to our application!? We are so confused. We have to call NVC early tomorrow morning ... but what does that even mean?

Sounds like a mistake, as CR-1 spousal visas don;t use priority dates anyways.
