    yes it is true that their I 485 is approved in sept 2007
    its true that i have same PD but in which category should i look in visa bulletin,
    their I 140 that is EB3 for india was current wen they file I 140 n I 485 in jan 2004, n it was later approved in sept 2007.

    but for my I 824 case which category's PD should i have to look??

    nvc ppl says they havent receive any I 824 case of mine n USCIS havent have any update on it, then where should i match ??

    It is really very complex story. u go through my signature again n u ll be clear.

    aneri,

    why have you mentioned may 2006 in calculation ??
    I m still confused, whether m considered as a child or not for uscis processing ??

    becoz still visa number is not current for my PD and i m 24 and 4 months as of today, so substract 24year n 4months-17months(which u counted)==obviously more than 21.. </div></BLOCKQUOTE>
    well, now I am confused too...
    you said that your parents' I-485 was approved in Sep 2007! I-485 can't be approved if priority date is not current. As a dependant, you would have the same PD as your parents.

    When you say your visa number is not current for your PD, by what PD you go? </div></BLOCKQUOTE>

      The only glitch that I can see in your case is the time when the Form I-824 was filed which is a critical matter, that as you said it was filed in January 2004 (or it was filed 'concurrently' with the employment-based AOS) which I think should not have been the case. That's the reason why it's probably 'set aside' by the USCIS.

      Form I-824 is being filed to request for further action on an 'approved' petition or application, which in your case should have been based upon your parent's I-485 approval.

      So in my opinion it would be OK if a new Form I-824 would be filed from September 2007 onwards within one year so you may be eligible for a derivative dependent visa or 'following-to-join' immigration benefit via consular process. That's granting that you're a CSPA beneficiary.

                Hm.. I think that I-824 is filled in connection with approved I-140 (as with approved I-130 in family based applications) to "ask" that the process for particular person continues abroad. However, no action for dependant will be taken until after the principal beneficiary is approved (for visa or adjustment of status).
                Makes sense?

                Anyway

                "...in cases involving a derivative seeking to
                follow to join a principal who adjusted in the U.S., the
                derivative can benefit from the CSPA if the principal
                filed a Form I-824 for the beneficiary within one year of
                a visa becoming available (i.e., within one year of the
                case becoming current or petition approval, whichever is
                later). The instructions to Form I-485 (the adjustment
                application) advise aliens adjusting status in the U.S.
                who have derivatives abroad to file a Form I-824 for such
                derivatives, and the I-485 Form indicates that that Form
                I-824 can be filed simultaneously with the Form I-485
                adjustment application. Therefore, the date on which the
                I-824 is filed may be the same date that the principal
                filed the I-485 adjustment application. "

                  Oops! I beg to disagree, sorry.

                  This is how USCIS expounded on Section 3 of the CSPA in part: Note: An alien may benefit from section 3 of the CSPA if the alien "sought to acquire" the status of an LPR within one year of visa number availability. The filing of the Form I-485 within one year of the immigration petition approval date (or visa becoming available subsequent to petition approval date, whichever is later) has been determined to meet that definition.

                  Meaning, there are various other factors that affect a derivative beneficiary's CSPA coverage such as: I-140 receipt date, how long it's been pending, and the child's age on the first day as per DOS Visa Bulletin that the visa for the I-140 category became available. But NOT including as a determinant basis as to when Form I-824 was filed.

                  Secondly, Form I-485 instructions state that Form I-824 'should be filed' concurrently with the I-485, why? just "to allow the derivatives to immigrate to the United States without delay if the principal's adjustment of status application is approved." It's in a suggestive context to me that by no means connotes that filing of I-824 later violates the rules or would result in an outright denial.

                  My previous post was case-specific to the OP's situation. He said that neither NVC nor USCIS has any update on the previously filed I-824 on his behalf.

                  Ah well, if I were in his shoes, I won't put my fate at the mercy of an over-burdened, disorganized (such as decision templates reflecting wrong alien names, A#'s, etc.), miserably inept (excuse the language), and seriously backlogged agencies, the fact that I have an option to file a new Form I-824.

                  Also I maintain what I said before that the I-824 is being filed against the principal's I-485, not against the I-140. Yes, the I-140 is the base petition, but its mere approval doesn't proffer any status or visa benefit by itself yet - its the visa number availability, in turn, for which the I-485 filing and approval hinges. Please read I-824 instructions Step 1. 2. B.

                  And just a side note, whereas I'm not sure about what you meant, but I-824 doesn't apply for "accompanying or following-to-join dependents" in any I-130 route.

                    OK, let's discuss this a little further...

                    I agree, but the way I read it, it is only relevant for the alien (seeking CSPA protection) who is in the USA and can file I-485. If that person is not in the USA, I-824 is needed so "USCIS to notify a different U.S. Consulate or Port-of-Entry concerning the approval of an application or petition. If approved, USCIS will cable information regarding the approval of your application or petition to a different consulate or Port-of-Entry than originally requested."(Instructions 1.1.B) It is needed if derivate is taking a different route than principal beneficiary. Some years back, I-824 was needed even if principal beneficiary was going to apply for an immigrant visa abroad and that was indicated on the I-140 or I-130. With I-824, consulate is informed about approved petition.

                    If on I-130 was indicated that the beneficiary is going to do AOS but he/she is no longer in the USA and wishes to get an immigrant visa, by filing I-824 the process will be re-routed.
                    And, more often - it is used in Follow-to-join. I-824 is nicknamed "follow to join" form.

                    (TL:VISA-563; 08-01-2003)
                    Legal residents who obtained status by adjustment of status in the United
                    States, can request that Department of Homeland Security (DHS) send the
                    Form I-824, Application for Action on an Approved Application or Petition, to
                    post as verification of their status. The Form I-824 provides the information

                    At the legal resident's

                      I have read this very confusing information in one CSPA memo

                      I am putting my scenarion in this, They havent mentioned anything about following to join case who is in abroad and visa number was not available and visa retrogession

                      PLESE SEE MY COMMENT IN CAPITAL LETTER

                      the beneficiary's age is to be calculated by first determining the age of the alien on the date that a visa number becomes available(WHAT WAS THAT DATE IN MY CASE??).
                      The date that a visa number becomes available is the approval date of the immigrant petition if, according to the DOS Visa Bulletin, a visa number was already available for that preference category on that date of approval(WAS IT AVAILABLE IN MY CASE?? I 140 IS APPROVED IN JUNE 5 2005)
                      . If, upon approval of the immigrant petition, a visa number was not available, then the date for determining age is to be the first day of the month of the DOS Visa Bulletin which indicates availability of a visa for that preference category. (CURRENT VISA BULETTIN SHOWS MY PD IS NOT CURRENT FOR EB-3, INDIA)
                      From that age, subtract the number of days that the petition was pending,
                      provided the beneficiary files a Form I-485, based on the subject petition, within one year of such visa availability(HERE IN MY CASE THEY HAVE FILED I 824). The "period that a petition is pending" for the Form I-140 is the date that the Form I-140 is properly filed (receipt date and not priority date) until the date an approval is issued on the petition(PENDING PERIOD IS 17 MONTHS).

                      MY PARENTS PD IS FEB 2003, WHICH WAS CURRENT IN JAN 2004 AND THEY FILED THEIR I 140 ANF LATER IT WAS APPROVED IN AUG 2005, WHAT I SEE IN CURRENT VISA BULLETINE IS CUT OFF DATE IS OCT 2001, HOW COME IT IS POSSIBLE ?? IT WAS CURRENT BACK TWO YEARS AND NOW THE CUT OFF DATE IS OF YEAR 2001.
                      DOES IT MEAN THAT I HAVE TO WAIT UNTILL CUTOFF DATE BECOMES ABOVE FEB 2003(WHICH WAS MY PARENTS PD AND SO MINE) ???

                      ANERI, i think ur calculation was wrong as per this memo, correct me if i m wrong, coz visa number was not available to me on the date I 140 approval(ie aug 2005) becoz PD was not current on that date n so we cant freeze my age on I 140 approval date

                      The time I-140 had been pending is: Jan 2004 (receipt date)- June 2005 (approval date) = 17 months

                      so, as long as the PD for I-140 became current before May 2006, you should be considered under 21 for immigration purposes.
                      In May 2006, you were 22y 5m. From that age you can deduct 17 months (I-140 pending) which puts you at 21.
                      You can look up when PD became current at the link I gave you (under employment category 3 and your country).

                      Now, I-140 and I-485 were filed together. And in January 2004, all the categories were current. That suggests that your parents' PD may had been current at the time when you were under 21. In that case, you did not aged-out either.

                      If PD was current at the time of the I-140/I-485 submission, what took so long for your parents to get green cards?! And you have no news on I-824?

                      Thare was some retrogesion in employment based PDs, but I am not too familiar with that.

                      There are several conditions for taking advantage of CSPA. The other is that derivate has to "sought to acquire" benefits within a year. I-824 was filed in Jan 2004, and that should cover that part.

                      Anyhow, if I were you I would try to find out what happened to I-824 and get that going. Have you ever heard from the consulate? NVC?

                      And - if you get married you can no longer be considered a child and dependant on your parents' petition. </div></BLOCKQUOTE>

In that case, you did not aged-out either. </div></BLOCKQUOTE> so there is no issue regarding age if that's scenario (don't forget there are other conditions to claim CSPA)

                        The time I-140 had been pending is: Jan 2004 (receipt date)- June 2005 (approval date) = 17 months . </div></BLOCKQUOTE>
                        X - 17months = 21 years old

                        -&gt; X = 17months + 21 years old ( 28 Dec 2004)

                        -&gt; X = 28 MAY 2006

                        so, if your PD bacame current in April 2006, you were under 21 for immig. purpose: 22y4m - 17months &lt; 21 y/o
                        if your PD became current in Jun 2006, you were onver 21 for immig. purpose: 22y6m - 17 months &gt; 21 y/o

                        or the way the memo says:

                        <span class="ev_code_RED">1</span> Let's say PD becomes current in April 2006, you were 22y4m
                        <span class="ev_code_RED">2</span> 17 months
                        <span class="ev_code_RED">3</span> Determined age = 1 - 2 = 22y4m - 17m = 20 y 11 m

                        That was the calculation that's described in the memo. Just since I was not sure when PD became current, I calculated what would be the latest date for PD to become current so you can still be considered under 21. It may very well be that (as per Archived Bulletin) PD was current in 2004.

                        However, as you noticed there was a retrogresion. I hope somebody here knows how that may affect your case. I have a general idea but that's not enough to claim something.

                        Who did all the papers for your parents? Can they check with that person what should be done?

                          Despite the unknowns, my gut feeling suggests that the OP has a big chance of being covered basing on his 1983 birth year. CSPA is a very complex statute that both DOS and CIS had to issue a huge number of interpretative memos since its passage. I don't know what the OP's parents are up to all along, but I think, yeah, it's time to get down to the nitty-gritty dimensions of this case with an experienced professional. Carl Shusterman is one CSPA expert that I can suggest.

                            Thanks aneri for recalling whole things.. I understood wat u said.. but still few questions arise like
                            1. In the Jan 2004 PD of FEB 2003 was current then y visa bulletine of april 2008 shows cut off date of OCT 2001 for same category and country ??
                            2. and If i go by visa bulletin then untill PD of Feb 2003 is not current I have to wait, IS it TRUE ??

                            well papers for my parents petition was done by "Smith, White, Sharma and Halpern" law firm located in atlanta, I have queried to them but they are not answering me properly..

                                Aneri,

                                Thanks for ur kind explanation through out my case.. well now there is some update and i m gng to share it with u..

                                My parents hired new lawyer before 2 month, lawyer asked USCIS for my case status and also they sent G 639(Freedom of Information/Privacy Act) signed by me. USCIS replied on that matter that

                                "This pertains to your inquiry about the processing of Form I-824 you filed on Jan 15 2004, In the form you checked the block states "I am requesting that a US Consulate be notified that my status has been adjusted to permanent residence. Please notify the US consulate at:"You entered "follow to join" in this block and failed to indicate the location of the US consulate the report was to be made. Your legal representative provided the location of the consulate via telephone on this date June 16 2008. Accordingly, a copy of the permanent documents has been forwarded to the National Visa Center for further transfer to the US consulate in Mumbai, India."

                                After receiving this letter I emailed NVC on 9 July, 2008 "whether they received this I 824 case or not?" and I have got replied that "NVC did not receive such case".

                                Now here I want to know that
                                1. When will USCIS forward I 824 (following to join) cases to NVC ? Are they forward to NVC only when priority dates become current ?? or they simply forward approved cases to NVC ?? How will NVC approach once they get file from USCIS ?? Will NVC seat back until priority dates becomes current or How do they calculate/find Priority dates of I 824(my case is very complex, for detail you can read my posts) ??

                                Thanks in advance
