The August 2013 visa bulletin comes with some great news for F2A preference category folks. The F2A category is for spouses and children (under 21) of green card holders, or legal permanent residents. The priority date jumped ahead almost 2 years making all the priority dates current. That means, anyone eligible can file their I-485 adjustment of status petition now.
If your I-130 has been pending and your family is in the US, then file for adjustment. If the family is outside the US, call NVC.
The visa bulletin indicates that the date will remain so for a few months but also indicates that there might be retrogression in fiscal year 2014. Fiscal year 2014 begins in October 2013. While I don’t get the sense that retrogression will occur in October itself, we could see it in the latter part of the 2013 or early 2014.
Good luck to everyone who is eligible to file now. We are happy to help anyone who wants it.
