Before the Child Status Protection Act (CSPA) was enacted in 2002, if a child reached his or her 21st birthday before immigrating to the US with their parents, they would loose their place in line. CSPA provides relief to children who “age-out” as a result of delays by the government in processing visa petitions. This ruling allows children to “seek to acquire” a visa within one year after a visa becomes available.
