    Answered . Not sure why your parents filed for you again. Even if you age out, your petition is still valid and priority date is kept. I suggest you contact an immigration attorney who will be able to review your documents and clarify everything for you. In the alternative, you can visit and review the current visa bulletin for processing times. Good luck.

    Answered . You can look at the Visa Bulletin on the website, which will show you what date they're currently working on. If your parents are US citizens, you'll be in the F3 category. If they're residents and you're older than 21 as it sounds, you'll be in the F2B category. If your parents filed for you twice, there's a chance you can keep the priority date from the first petition in 1995. If you haven't already figured that out, you should talk to an immigration lawyer to see if they can help you speed up your process that way.

    Answered . In these types of matters, it is best to present all of the documents to an experienced immigration attorney and discuss specific issues related to your entry into the U.S., any violation of the immigration laws, eligibility, etc. By doing this, you'll protect yourself from possible issues such as, ineligibility, inadmissibility or even deportation.
