Attorneys Sarah Owings and Nisha Karnani will be speaking to other attorneys at a family immigration law seminar on January 14, 2015.


Well, first we had great news about the creation of a system for pre-filing applications for lawful permanent residence that meant many people would suddenly become eligible to begin their application process earlier than expected – you can read the our first blog about the October Visa Bulletin here.


Whether you are seeking a green card through family or an employer, the Department of State and US Citizenship & Immigration Services recently made significant changes to the October 2015 Visa Bulletin that may impact you. The Visa Bulletin is issued by the US Department of State monthly to inform applicants where they stand in the green card waiting lines.


May 26, 2015 Executive Action Update

President Obama’s 2014 executive order advancing immigration reform was delayed earlier this year after a federal judge temporarily blocked implementation of DAPA and expanded DACA programs. The federal government appealed that ruling, and we are now awaiting a decision, hopefully in July, from a higher court.

We still expect a positive outcome and encourage those eligible for DAPA and expanded DACA to begin gathering documentation necessary to apply for those programs. Please contact us for more details, and read more about the current status of executive action below.
