    Answered . I agree with my colleagues, the timing depends on your now. At least, for as long as the priority is current, which in my opinion, will not be that long.

    Answered . You should consult with an immigration attorney about your case. It is not a change in law. It is that the F2A category of the Visa Bulletin is current at this time. It will likely retrogress in the future. Green card holders who are interested in petitioning for spouses should take steps to file I-130 Petitions, but it is difficult to predict how long the process will take. If the spouse is in the US in current legal status, adjustment could potentially be facilitated.
