I-485 Approvals Before Priority Date is Current According to Latest Visa Bulletin

In the past couple months, we have been seeing some client obtain I-485 approvals where their priority date is not current.  This is contrary to the law and may lead to a future revocation.  The USCIS Service Centers are willing to allow an informal application to rescind the approval and allow the person to retain their pending I-485, along with any approved work or travel authorizations.  Failure to take action in this instance may preclude future immigration benefits such as naturalization and may cause the applicant to lose his or her place in the immigrant visa queue.
