    I have the similar situation. I am trying to get some answers from INS. If successful, I will let you know.

    I am in the same situation. Two weeks ago, my mother, my brother and I,with all papers prepared, went to the INS office and applied for green card, but the INS accepted only my mother application because she has approval notice which bears only her name on. The INS told us(my brother and me) to get approval notice from the embassy in Thailand.

    Is it supposed to have approval notice for each accompanying son?
    Note: My brother is 20 years old, and I am 26 years old.

    Just to let you know that we are in the USA. We were paroled to the US in 1991.

    Is your case the same as mine?


    Thanks for sharing any info, or for feedback.

    you are what the law consider as "derivative children" of the beneficiary.if you are below 21 at the time your parent's visa becomes availabe, you are considered a "child" through out-no aged out.there is a qualifying thing here, which states:but only if the alien has sought LPR status within one of visa number availability; reduced by the number of days so and so. I would rather wait for the INS rules and regulations to know what it means. so if you are over 21 at the time your parent's visa number becomes available, you are out of luck.

    Guest,
    I don't think your interpretation was correct. The act states that the child's age is determined by the date the child's parent receives the visa number, reduced by the days of the period the applicable petition, described in the next section, is pending. The "next section" describes the petition and clearly the petition refers to form I-130, not I-485 (application for adjustment of status).
