On December 10, 2013, the Supreme Court heard oral arguments in the case of Mayorkas v. Cuellar de Osorio, concerning whether a derivative beneficiary of a visa petition who is over twenty-one years old, even when calculating the appropriate Child Status Protection Act (CSPA) age, is able to retain the priority date of the earlier petition filed on behalf of the primary beneficiary (generally his or her parent). While the case involves a somewhat dry and complicated question of statutory interpretation, the impact for law-abiding immigrant families is very real. The decision has the potential to offer relief to immigrant families who face continuing separation, many of whom have already been waiting years and even decades for the opportunity to immigrate lawfully to the United States.
