Hi guys.

Is it possible to reverse the status F2B to F2A? Im discussing this with a friend and she said that it is possible as long as you hired a private lawyer. The lawyer will file a petition to the NVC to reverse the status. I dont know how it is. What I am beleieving that once the NVC change it, then thats all. Unless if thats change of address, or mailing address i think they do.

Please give me some answer for those who have experience about this case... Ill appreciate it so much..

Thanks

The only way to go from F2b to F2a is to turn back time.

Your friend is telling you a tale. No lawyer change turn someone who is over age 21 to someone who is under age 21.

Your friend may misunderstood the Child Status Protection Act (CSPA) which allows a child who aged out from the F2a category into the F2b category to retain classification in the F2a category. This law is automatic and applied by the US consulate. A lawyer can't help.

Thanks for your reply to my question.

Yes, that was it. My friend mention about (CSPA). The lawyer will send a petition to the NVC to reverse the category back to F2A based on the (CSPA)act because it is our rights.

Then what if this petition is not true or applicable? Is their a possibilities that this lawyer was just playing goosechase with us? What would be the best thing to do to speed up the processing anyway? I hope more answers to come...

Well... the "request" should be made once the petition upgraded from F2A to F2B to preserve the case as F2A. But for use to know if CSPA would apply it would be necessary to know filing date, child'd age etc.
