📢 New USCIS Policy Change on the Child Status Protection Act! 🌟
🔍 What is the Child Status Protection Act? It shields kids and young adults from aging out of their immigration benefits. 🛡️
⏰ So, what changed? This primarily affects those who rely on the visa bulletin for their Green Card placement. Whether it's Family-based or Employment-based categories, the age calculation has been modified.
⚠️ Important points to note:
1️⃣ We're uncertain if this applies to Department of State consular processing cases.
2️⃣ This doesn't protect ALL kids from aging out.
3️⃣ You must seek to acquire your Green Card within 1 year of the visa becoming available (a separate requirement).
4️⃣ If you need assistance navigating this complex rule, call us at Antonini and Cohen. We're here to guide you. 📞
