In a long-awaited decision, the US Supreme Court recently ruled that the only aged-out children who can retain (and convert) their original priority date under the Child Status Protection Act (CSPA) are those who were petitioned by a lawful permanent resident (LPR) parent in the F-2A category (minor child of LPR), either as a direct beneficiary or as a derivative of their parent's petition.

Recently, a person came to my office for consultation after her adjustment of status application (based on marriage to a US citizen) was denied due to fraud.

Recently, a woman consulted with me about her brother’s immigration situation.  Years ago, their father petitioned both of them while their father was still an immigrant.  The father later naturalized, resulting in their petitions being “automatically converted” from single adult child of immigrant (F-2B) to single adult child of US citizen (F-1).
