Question Corner (November 2014)

Question: You just agreed to represent an F-2A beneficiary in her application for residency through consular processing.  You learn that she has a 20-year-old unmarried daughter who wants to immigrate as a derivative beneficiary. The priority date is current – in fact it's been current for almost two years.  The daughter will turn 21 in February.  Do you have any reason to worry about her aging-out, as long as she starts the consular processing in her case before her 21st birthday?
