Green card holder’s spouse and children under 21 years old which called F2A category starting from August 1 remain current. Current means there is currently no line in this category and the green card holders can apply their spouse and children under 21 for green card.
However, it is likely to remain current only until November. This is because once enough applications have been accepted, then it is very likely to retrogress which means the line will come back as before. And once the line come back, the expectation for F2A is continuing to move forward slowly. How far it retrogress depends on how many applications are filed in the next few months. Therefore, there will be no surprise even if the line comes back in October.
