Protecting your children and planning for their lives in the future is extremely important to almost all parents. This can be especially true when it comes to their immigration needs and the desire to see your children become permanent U.S. residents. Lozano Law Offices have successfully worked to assist parents who seek immigration and naturalization for their children. We achieve this through our extensive knowledge and expertise of immigration laws, the excellent personal service we strive to offer to each person who comes to us for help and by keeping our fees reasonable during these tough economic times.
Before to the Child Status Protection Act (CSPA) being put into law, an individual who was a beneficiary and turned 21 before being granted permanent residency would lose their status as a child for immigration purposes. This situation was unfair as long processing times for visas and the large backlog of petitions caused children to unjustly lose their child immigration status. With the CSPA now being in effect, certain beneficiaries are able to hold onto their “child” classification although they have reached the age of 21.
Attorney Crispin Lozano can help you to understand who is eligible to use the CSPA and can guide you through the forms and procedure with the purpose of seeing that your children can immigrate to the U.S. Our goal is to see your family united and we work aggressively on your behalf to achieve this.
CSPA’s protection extends to those who are seeking immigration for family reasons, employed-based visas and certain humanitarian programs such as refugees, those seeking asylum and VAWA (Violence Against Women Act). CSPA can help you if you are a U.S. citizen and filed a petition for your child’s immigration as this “freezes” the beneficiary’s age to the date on which you filed. If you are a permanent resident parent and filed a petition but became naturalized before your child turned 21, your child’s age remains the date you were naturalized.
Understanding the CSPA and how it applies to your situation is a service we provide so that you family can be together, here in the United States.
