Q: Residence denied for becoming adult
My Dad (a legal US resident) applied for residency for my mom, brother and I. When the residencies were finally issued my brother had become an adult (the application was filed when he was still a child). It was issued for my mom and I but not for him. Is there any legal means to argue on my brother's behalf? we were told a new application and process would have to be filed for him, which is really unfair in my opinion. Thanks for your advise
A: Seek review and advice from an experienced immigration attorney. Good luck. www.aba-us.com
This is an excellent question. Depending on when the original petition was filed, and how long it was pending, your brother may still be able to get his Permanent Residency under CSPA (Child Status Protection Act). I would need to know more details about your case before saying yes or no. Please feel free to contact me directly to discuss - Thank you!
