Minor to Major while Green Card in Process

Recommended Posts

Employer filed green card for their employee (Indian, H1B) and included his spouse and kid as dependents (which included a minor of age 18).

When the Kid turned 21, she is at college at age 21 and continue to be in US (have changed to Student Visa).

Does it impact the child from being processed for Green Card?

After age 21, child will have separated status and will not be considered dependent. If primary beneficiary does not get green card before child becomes 21 yo, that child has to find some status as he/she cannot be H-4 anymore. One of my friends family is going through status and green card is in no sight.

For that child to get Green card, he/she has to start over from scratch.
