On August 20, 2010, a three judge panel of the Ninth Circuit reversed and remanded for further proceedings, the district court’s decision (2009 WL 799683) allowing religious workers to file their adjustment of status applications concurrently with the organizations’ I-360 petition. RuizGarcia v United Sates2, No. 09-35734 (9th Cir. Aug. 20, 2010). Religious workers will not be able to file concurrently their I-360 and I-485 (adjustment of status) applications.

The law is not in effect yet, so those wishing to file should do it quickly.
