Missed CSPA benefits


Recommended Posts


My aunt, US citizen, applied for my mother's greencard under F4 category in 1989. I was derived beneficiary of this case. In July 2002, visa number became available. I was above 21 and unmarried at that time. My parents migrated to US and became citizen through naturalization in 2008.

My mother filed my for my greencard in 2008 under F3 category. I have now learned about child status protection act.mAnd had my parents applied for my greencard within a year they became greencard holder, I would have benefited under CSPA.

Can I now request NVC to recapture my original priority date ( 1989 case)? Does the CSPA provide any exception to one year limit?

Thank you.
