I-130 aging out

9 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My petitioner is a LPR and I received my approval from USCIS that the NVC is processing my case on 2/14/2018. My priority date is 11/15/2016. I turned 21 12/25/2017. I contacted the NVC and they told me they are waiting for it to be approved due to the fact that I am now over 21. Can someone explain how long I am supposed to wait before I hear something from the NVC

When was the I-130  approved by USCIS? This will determine if you are covered by CSPA or not. If not, then you will age out into F2B....with a ~7-10 year wait (starting from the original priority date).

A quick calculation indicates you should be covered by CSPA once the PD becomes current (in around January 2019). Your CSPA-adjusted age will be around 20 years and 9 months old.

Hi @Cld_cheaa

 

 

you have the same case with my niece. 

Filed her petition last Oct 12,2016,  shes 20 yrs old. Turned 21 on Dec 2016. 

 

PD: Oct 12,2016 (NOA1)

NOA2: Oct 23,2017 (approval)

 

Received letter from NVC: Nov 29,2017 (says her visa category is under F2B)

no available visa yet. 

 

@geowrian do you think my niece needs to wait for 7-10 yrs too? So sad 😞

Per my above comment, you will likely be covered by CSPA, so you won't age out. You will likely qualify to apply for for a visa in January or February 2019 (just an estimate when the PD will become current based on current processing rates).

 

Your niece will likely be just days away from aging out. The specifics of her birth day (not just birth month/year) and when exactly the PD becomes current (January/February onwards) will determine if she ages out or not. There's no way to make a reliable prediction as it really is that close right now...she will need to see when the PD actually becomes current. Good luck.

When did you get information from USCIS that your petition was approved 2/27/2018?  Did you receive letter in November 2018?
