What Date is My Wife's Priority Date?

Help Desk:

I obtained my Green Card recently before the visa retrogression. I want to submit an I-485 application to apply for Green Card for my wife who is now in United States as an accompanying spouse. Considering the current visa retrogression in my home country, I am not sure what date is her priority date?


The priority date for your wife's Green Card application should be the same as your priority date, not her I-485 application submitting date, since the spouse's visa number availability is determined by the priority date of your immigration petition. Considering the visa retrogression, your wife's application will be counted in the visa quota and the visa number must be available before her I-485 adjudication.
