OK, thank you very much.
During this process, please remember that I do not work for the government. My job is to be honest with you about your situation, and sometimes that means I have to deliver bad news. I know a negative outcome might create negative feelings for you, but those feelings should be directed to the US laws, not me. So please do not give me a negative rating for an answer you did not expect or like. Thank you for your understanding.
Kindly remember that I do not get a salary here. Your positive rating is the only way I am rewarded for doing my job. So please do not forget to give me 3 or more stars, or any smiling faces, before leaving the site today. Thank you!
ANSWER: Unfortunately, I see a few issues. First, the CSPA requires you to "seek to acquire" the benefit within 1 year of the benefit becoming available. In this case, the visa became available in August 2015. We are now in November 2016. Therefore, you did not seek to acquire the benefit within 1 year of it becoming available.
Second, the marriage would he precluded you from being considered a :child" for these purposes, as you would have had to remain unmarried to get the benefit.
Unfortunately, due to those two issues, you are not eligible for protection under the CSPA.
I'm very sorry to be the messenger of bad news; I wish I were not. But please do not hold it against me, as I do not make the rules. I am just here to provide you with information.
I hope I have answered your questions. Please help me get credit for doing my job, by giving me a positive rating of 4 or 5 stars or any of the smiling faces. If you still have more questions, you can ask them even after you’ve given a rating.
I aim to give you excellent service, even if the outcome is not what you wanted. So I am happy to answer any related follow-up questions you might have, at no additional charge.
And if you want to talk on the phone for 30 minutes, I can send you an offer for that.
A BONUS is also appreciated if you feel I've earned it.
And if you have questions in the future, write FOR JAMES in the question and I will be your personal Expert in this category.
