Former INS Attorney Carl Shusterman (1976-82) discusses how to use CSPA to obtain green cards for your sons and daughters. Schedule a legal consultation (by Skype, telephone or in person) at http://shusterman.com/schedule-immigr...

In order to alleviate the consequences of children “aging out” and avoid separating families, the CSPA provides an age preservation formula, minimizing the number of age-outs. The formula provides beneficiaries on a pending visa petition to preserve their age as under 21, despite being over 21.

The CSPA formula works allows the time that the I-130 or I-140 visa petition was pending from to be subtracted from the child’s age when the priority date becomes current.

See our CSPA Formula page at http://shusterman.com/cspa-formula.html

In many instances, the Child Status Protection Act (CSPA) freezes the ages of your children to prevent them from “aging out” when they reach their 21st birthday.

Before the enactment of CSPA in 2002, many children of US citizens would “age out” when they turned 21 placing them in the family-based 1st preference category (unmarried adult sons and daughters of US citizens). This forced them to wait many years in line to get green cards, and often to postpone getting married and having children.

Before the Child Status Protection Act (CSPA) was enacted in 2002, if a child reached his or her 21st birthday before immigrating to the US with their parents, they would loose their place in line. CSPA provides relief to children who “age-out” as a result of delays by the government in processing visa petitions. This ruling allows children to “seek to acquire” a visa within one year after a visa becomes available.
