Q: My priority date is current now but I turned 21 on march 4th, 2014. I was on the F3 visa category. What can I do?

My grandfather applied immigration for my mother and me and my brother was in the process since we were minors. I have been living in USA on F1 visa from July 14th, 2014.

You may still be able to apply under the previous category if your CSPA adjusted age is under 21. To calculate that age more information is needed, so please contact an immigration attorney in private to help you with this process. All the best.

It depends on what kind of investigation is going on. In most situations criminal investigations will not prevent you for applying for your fiance but in some cases they do. So talk to an immigration attorney in private tell them what investigation is going on. All the best.
