Do I need Medical Exam before filing the I-485?

With the new visa Bulletin from October 1, 2015, many are ready to file as from October 1, 2015. One of the FAQs we are getting is whether you should file a medical exam form I-693 if you are filing under the "acceptance chart".  The truth is that although it might not be required to have the form I-693 medical exam in the new Visa Bulletin model, the USCIS might confusingly return a case without the form I-693. In the event this happens and if the case is returned after October 31 2015 and there is a retrogression on the dates, one might actually miss a chance. As such we are recommending putting the medical exam assessment in the package although you might have to do the medical exam at a later stage. The worse is that you spend some extra fees in medical exam. If you want help on your I-485 adjustment of status case or any immigration case, feel free to call us at 510 7425887. We will discuss about this issue on our next radio show on Thursday September 17, 2015.
