Feeling lost, confounded, or downright stumped by the intricate regulations dealing with family-based petitions and the aging out process? Look for relief and answers in AILA's Focus on the Child Status Protection Act.

Author and Catholic Legal Immigration Network (CLINIC) senior attorney Charles Wheeler draws from his own experience and expertise, as well as from the collective wisdom of other practitioners who have examined, written, and litigated in family-based immigration, to explain the Child Status Protection Act (CSPA) and encourage readers to challenge government interpretations that are at odds with the regulation.

AILA's CSPA covers:

  • Tackling the problem of aging out;
  • Tips on how to convince local agents that clients qualify for CSPA relief;
  • How clients can benefit from CSPA and retroactivity; and many more!
