I am currently here in US on H1 since 2001 and my company filed for my I-140/485 which is pending with priority date of September 2003. The 485 has been filed for my family and I. At the same time, my brother who is a US citizen who also applied under family based-India (brother/sister) with priority date of January 2002. My question, when the date becomes current for family based green card and I accept that and forgo my employment based green card, Can Apply for my kids' green card under F2A category and will my kids get the original priority date January 2001? During that time period, what would be my kids' status? They are both over 21 but currently have EAD under my pending employment based I-485. If the date is current, how long does it take after I file for my kids to get their green card under F2A? Any advise will be greatly appreciated.
