  1. Hi, my father is a LPR and he filed up a I-130 form for me at 09/25/2020 (I was 20 years and 10 months old). So i was at the F2A category. My priority date is october 1st 2020. At the 18th of october 2021 i became 21 and i was wondering do i still considered to be in the F2A category or did i fall into F2B as the adult child of an LPR?? Because my file is at Nebraska service location and F2A processing time has passed my priority date. When i tried to send uscis a unquiry for outside normal processing time and results said “my application is currently within the posted processing times”. I don’t understand does CSPA work for me or should i do something?
  2. Hello , when i use Official CSPA Calculator This Error showing its this true or Site Bug
  3. Hi guys! I would like to ask for your advice. My family recently got our welcome letter thru email since the last March 2021 visa bulletin - dates for filing, our PD got included. PD: Jan 23,2003 Approval date: Aug 25,2009 My concern is that me and my 2 brothers are already in our early twenties and we're just completing the documents and paying for the necessary fees. I would like to know if we're still qualified for the immigration with my parents under CSPA? here are our birthdates: ME: 07/16/1995 - 25 Bro1: 07/10/1994 - 26 Eldest" 04/17/1997 -23 thank you very much!
  4. Good Day everyone! Priority date: June 2, 2000 Became current on the visa bulletin: May 1, 2020 I turned 21 years old last July 3, 2020. The petitioner emailed NVC about it and they said that I am eligible for CSPA (because I was still under 21 in May 2020) It will just depend on the consul during interview. I read something here that I'd be protected as long as I submit a DS260 within a year after being current on the visa bulletin. I submitted a DS260 last April 29, 2020. Became documentarily qualified last December 2020 and right now, we're just waiting for the interview date. I'm just wondering because of all the backlogs and delays, what will happen after a year of submitting DS260? Does that mean I might be considered aged out in April 2021 since it's already been a year when I submitted a DS260? Thank you!
  5. As an age out children myself what visa category should I expect ??? I hope CspA apply for me !!!!! I've heard I don't have to watch the visa bulletin I don't need a priority date, I hope there is unlimited visa for me like immediate relative I was DQ in August 2020 im waiting after this 10014 ban is lifted
  6. Hello, I’m on H1B status in States and My parents has F4 file ( filed by mom’s sister ), Can someone help with CSPA Calculations and Is there any other way to be immigrant when my parents arrive in states. Here is details for our application, My Birth: 02/07/1994 Priority Date: 03/23/2005 Approved Date: 08/20/2009 DS 260 Filed: Aug 2019 I paid all fees for me along with my parents. However, When I open the portal now, I cannot see my name after couple of months. We’re waiting for interview letter currently. As per calculation, It looks like I’m already aged out but is there any other way to get eligible for GC? Any help would be really appreciated.
  7. Date of Birth: 02/28/1998 Priority Date: June 5, 2006 Approved Date: February 5, 2010 Notice Date: April 21, 2010 Notice of Immigration Case Creation Letter: October 04, 2019 Form DS-230 Completed: October 5, 2020 All required documents have been received and approved: January 6, 2021 I paid my father and mother CEAC IV fees but I couldn't pay for mine. I am really worried and I wanna confirm if I can still apply for CSPA?
  8. Hello all, I am writing this post for my mom's F4 case filled by her brother. My mom has 3 kids. one daughter and two sons. DOB of daughter: 4th November 1988 DOB of elder son: 18th May 1992 DOB of younger son (i.e. Me): 30th June 1994 First I would provide timeline of our file processing and then I will raise my doubts. TIMELINE Petition Filled on: 9th April 2004 Petition Approved: 20th November 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: 12th January 2016 I have read the definition of child as per USCIS which primarily says a kid has to be younger than 21 years and unmarried from here. By the time we received welcome letter and we logged in to ceac.state.gov the tool had 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. Since my elder sister is married she is not eligible for CSPA and my dad passed in July of 2013 and as per our local agent both the sons are eligible for CSPA so we sent a request letter to NVC to remove my dad's name and include name of two sons. Sent CSPA request letter with request to remove my dad's name: 1st February 2016 With that letter NVC removed my dad's name but they haven't included name of either of son. Meanwhile we completed all the document work of my mom's case i.e. filled DS-260, paid $325 fees, paid $125 AoS fees and submitted all the civil and financial docs and in July 2016 we received letter from NVC stating all the document work is done and your case is awaiting for visa interview appointment overseas. As per the guidelines of our agent we did not mentioned anything about two sons in AoS forms. In June 2016 files retrograded from July 2003 to January 2001 so all activities stopped for our case I guess. In September 2016 files started moving again and since than it's moving at a decent pace. In between we also sent an email to NVC to know the status of our CSPA application for which they replied on 22nd July 2016 like this..... Although we send query to NVC we receive this reply from Mumbai Consulate office which was strange. And finally on 31st January 2017 we received similar email as we received in July 2016 stating.... We sent another CSPA request in February 2017 for which we neither received any acknowledgement of request letter nor we received any reply for the same. Now here are my doubts, DOUBTS Should we contact NVC again for CSPA?? Should we contact Mumbai Consulate for CSPA? Where is our file currently? Is it in NVC or is it in Mumbai Consulate? As per the last letter we received it says most of appointments are scheduled within 3 months but looking at current speed of file processing, there is time for file of April 2004 to be current So when Mumbai Consulate will arrange interview within 3 months or file will be in queue till April 2004 dose not become current? In ceac.state.gov tool since last several days the status of AoS fees has changed NA which used to be paid earlier so is there anything we have to from our end? Likewise our entire process is complete for my mom yet the status of AoS documents and Civil Documents are never updated as completed they are still NA so should we contact NVC for the same? What are the chances of getting CSPA protection at time of my mom's visa interview? Is it mandatory to mentioned about aged out sons in the forms of AoS to get the benefit of CSPA? Can someone provide some concrete example of CSPA with F4 case? some sort of link would work. Any other suggestion for our case. When I wrote this post the latest visa bulletin i.e. March 2003 says currently they are processing files of 22 July 2003 visa bulletin of April 2003 dues in 7-10 days. Any suggestions/answers would be a great help. Thank you in advance. Thank you for reading so far and sorry for misusing quote box.
  9. Hi all, I'm a derivative for F4 based visa waiting for my interview in india. Here is the timeline of my case PD - jan 2005 Approval- Nov 2009 DS260 submittion - October 2019 DQ acknowledgement- November 2019( received NVC mail that the case will be sent to mumbai consulate for the interview) PD Becomes current on May 2020 CSPA age when PD becomes current - 20 Years 6 months So i was worried if im gonna lose my chance as a derivative if i age out. I submitted all the documents ( plus the fees) before my PD became current and my cspa age remained under 21 on the day visa became available to us. From what i found, the age gets locked if all these conditions are met. I want to know if im still eligible for the interview? Since the Trump's EO is valid till december 31, i know it will be a long wait..but i want to stay assured whether ill be eligible. Also what last batch of F4 interviews was mumbai consulate conducting? This shall give me an estimate how bad the backlog is. Hope to get some insights. Thanks a lot in advance!

  17. Hi everybody, my case falls in the F4 category; my Form I-130 was filed on November 19, 2007 and it was approved on February 28, 2012 (meaning, it took 4 years, 3 months to approve my case; this is my pending time). Currently I’m 20 years old and I turn 21 July next year. As far as I know once I turn 21 I’m no longer elegible for a Green Card if our priority date ever becomes current after July 2021. However, the Child Status Protection Act (CSPA) prevents what I’ve just mentioned above from happening using the following formula: Age at Time of Visa Availability - Pending Time = CSPA Age This means that I'll have to subtract the pending time minus my current age once my priority date becomes current. Essentially 4 years, 3 months will be subtracted to my age. (According to this calculations, I have until October 2025 before I age out) But I read that if I want to benefit from the CSPA I must fulfill the "Seek-to-acquire" requirement, and this is the part that I don't completely understand: "The USCIS implies that in order to benefit from CSPA as a family preference you must seek to acquire lawful permanent resident status within 1 year of a visa becoming available to you". What I understand out of that is, if I want to benefit from the CSPA I must fill one of the following forms within 1 year of the immigrant visa becoming available to my family and I: Form I-485 (while in the US) Form DS-260 (while outside the US) Form I-824 (while in the US) So I'll appreciate if someone can confirm if I'm right, and what form(s) do I have to fill if I want to benefit from the CSPA. Thank you all of you in advance.
  18. I understand Child Status Protection Act (CSPA) is clearly defined in USCIS guidance. For US citizen sponsor of IR2 child/step-child under 21 and unmarried, the child's age is frozen at date of submission of I-130 and apparently remains so. USCIS rules also state CSPA should also be generally applied the same way under Dept of State (DOS) processing (NVC). So what if due to COVID-19 (in Philippines}, we purposely delay submission of the DS-260/fees and it gets past his real 21st birthday but still under the one year application start of submission deadline at NVC. I assume he cannot be aged out? I also assume the one year NVC countdown for us to act on the visa application is from date of NVC notification of USCIS approval?
  19. Currently been contacted by USCIS. After logging on, it was noticed my son who is 21 is not on the case but my other two children are. I added him and fulfilled the necessary requirements and submitted it in. How long does it take for NVC to review an added beneficiary family member to case? That is , accept or deny the request?
  20. Priority Date: March 28, 2005 Approval Date: April 17, 2009 Current Visa Bulletin: January 22, 2005 DOB: April 20, 1997 Category: F4 Location: India Hi, I am a derivative applicant, whereas my father is the principal applicant. My biological age is 23. However, I calculated my CSPA age using an online calculator and it turns out to be 19 years. I would like to know if I am surely covered under CSPA. I have read a couple of articles where the CSPA applicant is not approved of the visa. What action can I take prior to the date becoming current to stay covered under CSPA? Why do some people get rejections even if staying covered under CSPA? Thank you!
