Child Status Protection Act: Retaining Your Sanity

This 90 minute audio seminar was presented live on May 20, 2014, from 2:00 pm-3:30 pm eastern time.

The Child Status Protection Act (CSPA) has now been a law for over a decade. It has protected numerous children facing the prospect of aging out. However, there are still facets of CSPA that leave practitioners perplexed. Certain provisions in the CSPA have undergone extensive federal litigation. This seminar discusses some advanced issues surrounding CSPA, along with an up-to-date discussion and legal analysis of Mayorkas v. Cuellar de Osorio.

  • Calculating the CSPA Adjusted Age of a Beneficiary and Examples of CSPA Calculations: Complicated Cases Involving Preference Category Beneficiaries
  • Recapture of Priority Dates
  • Automatic Conversion and Avoiding the F-1 “Upgrade”
  • Discussion of DHS Policy Guidance (November 21, 2013) Pending the Cuellar de Osorio Decision
  • Who's Out of Luck? Examples of When CSPA Does Not Apply
