Chicago, IL asked in Immigration Law for Iowa

Q: I am permanent resident with an 1-130 petition for my daughter her priority date is 5/7/2018 will a visa be granted soon

The petition was submitted just a few days after her 20 birthday which was May 3, 2018, so as of today she’s 21. I did receive the I-797c notice with the priority date, which is May7th 2018. So Based on the current visa bulletin of July 2019 will her case be moving anytime soon.( is she now eligible for a visa)? Also, is she protected against aging out given that the application was made before she turned 21. ?

A: Your daughter’s priority date is current (that’s what the “C” means on the visa bulletin). You and your daughter should be notified soon about being able to file the visa application.

Your daughter’s age will be adjusted backward by the amount of time it took to process the visa petition.
