IJ mentioned about a waiting list, later my attorney said 1.5 to 2 years for a number to become available since there is waiting list on chronological order meaning first come first served.
I hope this helps you
The number means the green card; according to the law only 4000 green cards are available each fiscal year for this type of benefit, it happens that there are thousands of people applying for this and IJs have found more then 4K each year so whoever was approved but no more green card available waits until next fiscal year which start in October, OCIJ places you in the waiting list in chronological order after the judge has reserved his decision but he can orally tell you what he is gonna do; during the wait time you can still keep applying for a WORK permit
You need to contact any immigration and visa experts or call them xxxxxxxxxxDoes anybody know if there is numbers available for the fiscal year for a cancellation of removal? Anybody got an approval lately? What is the wait after Individual hearing
