Jesus. There is a class action right now on this issue. If there is a favorable result, then you potentially could petition your daughter for 2B while retaining the priority date of the original petition. But according to the law as it is right now, you daughter is aged out.

I was petitioned by my sister on October 26, 1984. I reported to the U.S. Embassy in Manila the birth of my son on April 17, 1985. He was then five months old. I was finally given a U.S. visa and left the Philippines on June 17, 2008. According to the National Visa Center (NVC) and the consul who interviewed me, my son was out-aged. I did not file DS-230 within one year of visa becoming available. Can the Child Status Protection Act still be applied to my son’s case?

Jean, it should be 22 (your age when the immigrant visa number was available) minus however long it took for the I-130 to be pending (after filing and before approval) and if the result if smaller than 21, then you are OK to claim benefits as beneficiary by filing following to join. Otherwise need a new petition.

My father got and immigration visa in 1991 in Cairo,Egypt, as beneficiary of a visa petition filed by his US citizen brother (Mahmoud Ismail El-Guindy)on 12/11/1974 and approved on 1/26/1975….At the time my dad got the visa in 1991 I was a “derivative beneficiary” as a child. However up till now I never claimed this visa..Giving that I`m now 26 years old and unmarried, I was wondering what are the next steps I have to take to obtain this immigrant visa?
