USCIS advised that it has suspended final adjudication of employment-based Form I-485 applications as of today, because the Department of State indicated that the statutory cap has been reached for the employment-based preference categories through the remainder of FY2015, which concludes on September 30, 2015. USCIS stated that it will continue to accept adjustment of status applications that are filed when the applicant’s priority date is earlier than the relevant cut-off date published in the September Visa Bulletin. Final adjudication of employment-based adjustment applications will resume on October 1, 2015, on which date visa numbers will again be available.
