The September 2014 visa bulletin was released today. Here is what my readers are looking for:
For all countries except India, China, Philippines, and Mexico: F2A category advances a whole 8 months taking the priority date to 1 January 2013 (great news!). F2B preference advances 2 months with PD at 1 September 2007; No change in F4 category leaving PD at 1 January 2002; EB2 is current and, and EB3 sees no movement leaving to PD at 1 April 2011.
For India only: F2A category advances a whole 8 months taking the priority date at 1 January 2013 (great news!). F2B preference advances 2 months with PD at 1 September 2007; No change in F4 category leaving PD at 1 January 2002; EB2 India sees about 4 months advancement taking PD to 1 May 2009 and EB3 sees no movement leaving priority date at 8 November 2003.
If you are eligible to file, it is important for those who are eligible to prepare filing your I-485 package as soon as possible. Please note you cannot file until September 1st and while the priority date remains current for you. Good luck to those who can file!

News re. upcoming visa availability:
D. VISA AVAILABILITY IN THE COMING MONTHS
INDIA Employment-based Second Preference: The use of potentially “otherwise unused” Employment numbers prescribed by Section 202(a)(5) of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) has allowed the India Employment Second preference cut-off date to advance very rapidly in recent months. Continued forward movement of this cut-off date during the upcoming months cannot be guaranteed, however, and no assumptions should be made until the dates are formally announced. Once there is a significant increase in India Employment Second preference demand it will be necessary to retrogress the cut-off date, possibly as early as November, to hold number use within the fiscal year 2015 annual limit.
