Important Deadline for Religious Workers

Readers of my blog are reminded of an important deadline for religious workers who might benefit from the court’s order in Ruiz-Diaz v. United States, No. CO-71881RSL (W.D. Wash. June 11, 2009).

Applications for adjustment of status must be filed by August 31, 2009. This deadline applies to those applicants who had Form I-360 religious worker immigrant petitions pending as of June 11, 2009, and have accrued unlawful presence or unauthorized employment from the date of filing. A properly filed adjustment of status application by August 31, 2009 will toll any such unlawful presence or unauthorized employment until USCIS issues a final administrative decision.

If you have any questions about this deadline or any other immigration issue please give me a call at 616-233-9300.
