Expansion of Green Card Interviews

USCIS has announced that effective October 1, 2017, it will require far more applicants to attend in person interviews at district offices as a pre-condition to approval.  Currently, all marriage and many family based green card applications are required to have in person interviews at district offices.  However, most employment-based cases are decided at regional immigration offices, and have not required in person interviews.  The addition of thousands of employment-based applications to the interview calendars at district offices will likely lead to far longer backlogs in an already over-burdened system.  We anticipate a dramatic increase on wait times for all green card applicants.
