    Answered . It appears you might have been able to benefit under the CSPA, but to do so, you have to seek permanent residence within a year of your visa becoming available. If your priority date became current in 2009 and you still haven't done anything, you might have lost your opportunity to use the CSPA. Talk to an immigration lawyer in detail about your case to see what your options are.

    Answered . No, it is unlikely at this point. However, an appointment or teleconference with a competent and experienced immigration attorney may best help you appreciate situation.
