CSPA calculation help

Asked about 2 years ago - Somerset, NJ

I would really appreciate it if someone could confirm my CSPA calculation below:
Father's I-140 (EB-3) Receipt Date: April 22, 2004
Father's I-140 (EB-3) Priority Date: April 30, 2001
Father's I-140 (EB-3) Notice (Approval) Date: June 1, 2004
Son's Date of Birth: June 21, 1982
EB-3 current date: March 1, 2006 (the day the Priority Date of April 30, 2001 became current on the Visa Bulletin)
Son's CSPA Age: 20 yrs 7 Mnths -> calculated by subtracting the Son's age on March 1, 2006 from the time case was pending (Priority Date to Approval Date: 3yrs 1 Mnth)

Thank you very much.

    Answered . Son was 23 years, 8 months old when priority date became current. If visa petition was pending 3 years and 1 month, his CSPA age is indeed 20 years, 7 months. CSPA requires that he "sought to acquire" permanent residence within one year after his priority date became current.

    Answered . Under the facts you give, your child has aged out even after the application of the CSPA formula. The error you are making is including the time from the filing of the Labor certification in the calculation. Only the time the I-140 was pending is used in the formula. That time is 40 days.
