USCIS recently announced how it will be implementing a court decision overturning a previous different court decision requiring the USCIS to accept the concurrent filing of adjustment of status applications with pending religious worker applications. The USCIS stated that as of November 8, 2010, it will no longer accept any Form I-485 adjustment of status applications, as well as Applications for Employment Authorization (Form I-765) and/or Applications for Travel Documents (Form I-131) filed concurrently with or based upon pending Form I-360 Petition for Amerasian, Widow(er) or Special Immigrant from individuals seeking classification as special immigrant religious workers. Since August 5, 2009, the USCIS has accepted concurrent adjustment of status filings from religious workers. However, due to a court decision reversing a different court decision requiring the USCIS to accept such concurrent filings, the USCIS stated that it will return to its previous policy which did not allow for concurrent filings in this type of case. However, instead immediately implementing the change, the USCIS indicated that the change will not become effective until November 8, 2010. After November 8, 2010, religious workers will only be able to file adjustment of status applications after their Form I-360 petitions are approved.
