Family and Employment based applicants on the rise

Increase in approvals for green card applications

Family and employment based applicants. The DOS offers an Annual Report of immigration visa applicants in both the family and employment based on preferential categories. Family-based green card applicants under this category may also experience quite a long processing time of up to 12 months and above. And in some cases, it may be as long as 5 to 10 years. Processing times can be a lot longer if your application is incomplete or contains errors. Employment-Based Adjustment of Status is the path that many foreign nationals currently living in the U.S. choose to take if they have secured a job at which their employer is willing to sponsor their petition for a green card. This is the fastest way to immigrate. Within the next two years, you must contact the USCIS again with proof of the validity of the marriage.
