It will depend on what the cut-off day will be come October.
(213) 394-4554 x0 Mr. Shusterman is a former INS Trial Attorney (1976-82) with over 35 years of immigration experience. His response to your question is general in nature, as not all the facts are known to him. You should retain an attorney experienced in immigration law to review all the facts in your case in order to receive advice specific to your case. Mr. Shusterman's statement above does not create an attorney/client relationship.
There is no way to predict when that dreaded priority "cutoff" day is upon us in October how far back the priority dates will "retrogress". Unfortunately no one has a "crystal ball" or can read the future with such precision. We shall see what we shall see come October. In any event, you will not be able to be processed and obtain your immigrant visa without your priority date being current (and that's without counting the "administrative processing" for which Islamabad is famous for..)
