What happens if my I-485 adjustment application has been approved, but my dependent’s application is still pending and the priority date is no longer current?

Unfortunately, even if the principal’s I-485 adjustment of status application has been approved, the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) cannot approve the derivative applicant’s (e.g. spouse and /or child) I-485 adjustment of status application if the priority date is no longer current. The derivative application will be put on hold, and USCIS will not resume processing until the priority date becomes current.
