Priority Dates

  • These dates apply to immigrants who are not immediate relatives of United States Citizens. Because the government has put a cap on the number of these people who can immigrate, they have to wait until their priority date is current before they can immigrate. An individual’s priority date depends a number of factors and can result in a long waiting period.

Determining whether you’re eligible for this form of relief is complicated. Please schedule a consultation if you think you might eligible.
