I am a derivative child in a family-based case that was filed for my mother. My mother’s case is current on the dates for filing chart, and the National Visa Center has accepted our documents. Now, we’re waiting for the interview and for the date to become current on the final action chart. Is my age locked in now under the Child Status Protection Act?


Unfortunately, no. Age is not locked in under the CSPA based on having a case pending at the consulate under the dates for filing chart. A child can still age out under these circumstances.  (19.Jun.2024)
