First of all thankyou for your reply🙏.How much time it will take for cases of 2005?

There's no way to know that as it depends on how many people in front of you actually get a visa. Some won't pursue a visa. Some will be inadmissible or not eligible for the visa. Some may just be themselves while others might have a spouse and several qualifying children dependents.

My Mother’s real sister filed our petition in 2005.But now me and my sister are above 21 years of age although we are not married yet.So can we still go to US with our parents when our turn comes??

Anything involving CSPA comes into play only once the Priority Date is current.

To answer that would need to know 

+ your dates of birth

+ priority date of petition 

+ approval date of petition 

+ date visa is available (can only guess at the moment)

That said, my understanding is that you would not qualify for CSPA since you are a derivative beneficiary that would be 21+ when the Priority Date becomes current.

Back in 2005 when petition was filed we were below 21.So that means we are safe to go

No, it doesn’t.

  How it works is you subtract the dates between when the petition was first received and when it was initially approved from your real age at the time a visa number is available.  Do you know the first 2 dates ? 


This will not be over quickly. You will not enjoy this.

Check the Visa Bulletin linked previously linked above. Here it is again for reference: https://travel.state.gov/content/travel/en/legal/visa-law0/visa-bulletin.html

Look for the "Final Action Dates" table then locate the F4 row and India column.
