F2B petitioner becoming USC; PD 08/2015 - best route to the US?

I would appreciate some help here.


Petition filed for unmarried child, over 21 of permanent resident. PD is 17 august 2015 and CSC is still processing May 12, 2015 appications now. Recent visa bulletin is dealing with Jun 2010.


Issue now is that permanent resident is going to be USC soon. What is the best thing to do to make the "child" get into the US legally in the shortest time possible? Is it wise not to upgrade when petitioner becomes USC? How long will it take to get NOA2? Anyone else with PD account the same date got their NOA2?

it takes a little longer for unmarried children of a USC, so time won't change, seven years. if you check the visa bulletin, the priority date for F1 is January 2010, compared to June 2010 for F2B

You are able to retain your original PD if upgrading would result in a long processing time.
