How Changes in the Child Protection Act Affect You and Your Family

On Behalf of | Nov 30, 2020 | Immigration

The U.S. Citizenship & Immigration Services (USCIS) is providing direction on existing guidance when it comes to the Child Status Protection Act in the USCIS Policy Manual.

Specifics include:

  • Applying CSPA to derivatives of widows and widowers
  • Specifics for adjustment of status applicants regarding relevant immigrant petitions used to calculate CSPA ages
  • Ways that applicants can satisfy the one-year “sought to acquire” mandate to secure permanent residence

The USCIS is setting a final date – December 14th, 2020 – for purposes of reviewing and commenting on the “sought to acquire” requirement. The USCIS Policy Manual provides a centralized online location specifically where feedback can be submitted at any time via the manual page’s “Feedback” button.

As with anything related to the complexities of complex immigration processes, the insight of a skilled and experienced attorney is vital to ensure that you are adhering to current laws.
