An August 8, 2000 INS memo prohibited aliens from simultaneously pursuing adjustment of status and immigrant visa processing, and instructed field offices that in cases where an application for adjustment of status is already pending, I-824 requests for consular notification of an approved I-140 or I-130, as well as duplicate immigrant petition filings that request consular processing of immigrant visas, are to be treated as withdrawals of any pending adjustment of status application, and any accompanying work authorization. INS memo HQ70/23.1P (AD00-15), M.Cronin (August 8, 2000); AILA InfoNet Doc No. 00101803 (posted Oct. 18, 2000). Note that the memo stated it was adding a new section 23.2(1) to the Adjudicator's Field Manual, but the online AFM does not include that section.
