  2. Category: F4 INDIA (US citizen brother filed for his sister in INDIA) Priority Date: 27-09-2004 Approval Date: 22-03-2010 Welcome letter received on: 26-04-2018 AOS fees paid on: 01-05-2018 Case Completed on: 15-06-2018 I am a son (derivative beneficiary) of principal applicant (my mother) in this case. My Date of birth: 09-09-1994 Current age: 23 years 9 months Petition pending duration: 5 years 5 months 24 days TIME LINE TILL NOW: After receiving welcome letter, on the CEAC website we were able to pay IV fees for my mother (principal applicant) and father only, my name (Son’s name) was there but I was unable to pay the IV fees as no invoice was generated for me. So we dropped an email to NVC explaining them applicability of CSPA to this case and to generate IV fee invoice for me(Son) and we got following reply from NVC to that email - “We reviewed this petition for eligibility under the CSPA and we determined that applicant does not benefit under CSPA”. After that we paid AOS fees and IV fees for my parents (mother and father) and completed IV application (DS-260) of mother and father. While filing that form; on particular question of WHETHER I AM IMMIGRATING WITH MY PARENTS, we filled YES in both the forms. Following that we mailed NVC all the requested documents of petitioner and applicant (mother and father). We also mailed them my documents along with all other documents. Then we send one more email to NVC insisting them for adjudication with a consular officer then NVC’s preliminary CSPA age assessment for applicability of CSPA to this case. To that email we again got same reply: “We reviewed this petition for eligibility under the CSPA and we determined the applicant is not eligible”. After that we got case completion letter on 15-06-2018. But now when I open CEAC website my name is completely missing from Applicant information and IV application processing fees sections (Name was visible in both the sections before) only the names of my mother and father are there. So my question is “what should we do next for applicability of CSPA? Should we wait until priority date becomes current OR is there anything else we can do? Can any one tell me exact procedure for CSPA with exact timing to do it? What about missing name from CEAC website? Should we hire an attorney?THANKS.
  3. Hello all, I am writing this post for my family's F4 case filled by my mom's brother. My mom has 3 kids. two daughters and one sons. DOB of daughter(Me): 21th June 1990 DOB of elder daughter: 19th July 1993 DOB of younger son : 13th December 1994 First I would provide timeline of our file processing and then I will raise my doubts. TIMELINE Petition Filled on: 10th November 2004 Petition Approved: 11th August 2009 (also received the letter saying it will take years for them to process file so do not give up your jobs or make any travel arrangement as of now etc.) Welcome Letter Received: 9th May 2017 I have read the definition of a child as per USCIS which primarily says a kid has to be younger than 21 years and unmarried. By the time we received a welcome letter and we logged in to ceac.state.gov the tool had the name of only two people i.e. of my parents, that's obvious all of three kids are aged out by that time. Then we came to know about CSPA, which can provide protection to unmarried aged out kids by subtracting the processing time taken from biological age. None of us (the children) have married, so we sent a request letter to NVC to include the name of the three kids and they did it, they add the three of us in the process, so we paid the fees and send all the documents needed. A couple of weeks ago the NVC send the letter for the interview for my parents and my name and my siblings. But yesterday someone from the embassy in our country called us saying the Im out of the proccess and that is better that I dont spend the money on the medical exams. My mom told her that we appeal to the NVC before and that they added me knowing the situation of my age, she told her that I could still go to the interview but that Im actually out for my age. We asked our lawyer and he told us that I could go, but we decided If I take the medical exams now or I go like this and I can present the medical exams after the consuls answer. QUESTIONS What are the chances of still getting the residence? Has someone gone through this situation? can you please share your story to know what to expect or what to do? Should I get the medical exams before or after the interview?
  4. Hi, My brother Filed my F4 -brothers and Sisters of US citizens in may 2005. ie me +my husband + son (7 yrs) + daughter (2) years of age in 2005. as per the present trend immigration approval is expected around 2019 -2020. by that time my son will be around 21 plus or maybe 22 yrs of age. will we face the age out problem for my son? will he be eligible for usa immigration viza if his age is above 21 at the time of visa call? if yes what are the solutions.
  5. Hi! I need help understanding if we are eligible to adjust status. I am an LPR (gained from being petitioned as parent of USC), petitioned my other then 20 year old daughter via F2A. Looking at the current priority date (as of Jan 2018), it's Feb 2016. Below are our dates. Priority Date: January 26, 2016 Date of Birth: April 28, 1995 Approval Date: May 16, 2016 (unsure about this. Is this the Notice Date of the Approval Letter? or when Visa is available?) We received a letter from NVC back in June 2017 that they are changing her classification to F2B. I am not sure if she is covered throught the CSPA. I hope she is! Thank you very much!
