Legal Deadline: None

Abstract: The rule implements the Child Status Protection Act of 2002. 
The Act helps protect certain immigrant visa applicants from being 
denied immigration benefits due to their reaching the age of 21 and 
because of delays in legacy INS petition approval and adjustment 
processing. If an alien is eligible for relief after reaching age 21, 
his/her age is frozen throughout the pendency of his/her case. The rule 
sets forth the special formulas for calculating an alien's age for 
immigrant visa processing purposes.

officer considers that necessary for the purposes of investigation or
