I filed my son’s I-485 as my dependent before he had aged out. After we applied, however, the category retrogressed. Is it possible my child could now age out?


If the child qualified as a dependent at the time the I-485 was filed based on the date being current in Chart A (i.e., the final action chart), the child normally would not be at risk of aging out based on subsequent retrogression. However, if only Chart B (i.e., dates for filing chart) was current at the time the I-485 was filed, this would not normally protect the child from aging out. (16.Dec.2021)
