This webinar is intended for legal service providers familiar with the basics of the family visa petition (I-130) process and interested in a more advanced discussion regarding the CSPA's role in that process. During our presentation, we will review how the CSPA protects immediate relatives, including the effects of not only the 21st birthday of the beneficiary at issue, but also their marriage/divorce or the naturalization of the petitioner. We will also cover how to calculate the CSPA age of a preference category beneficiary, including several participatory examples. We'll review how the visa bulletin is involved in this and when and how visa regression affects the CSPA age. Finally, we'll examine the rules regarding the recapturing of priority dates and how the CSPA may protect asylee derivatives.
