My family and I have I-485 applications that have been pending for a number of years because of retrogression. My daughter is about to turn 21. Will she age out if her I-485 is not approved before her birthday?


In general, if the I-485 was filed before the child turned 21 years of age, and within one year of the priority date becoming current, the child would be protected by the Child Status Protection Act (CSPA). However, there are a number of additional factors that need to be taken into consideration. Therefore, you may wish to consult with an immigration attorney to review the specific facts of your situation. (10.Jul.2019)
