We do not want to prejudge what the Supreme Court will do. The annual term of the Supreme Court is the 1st Monday of October until the last case argued before it that term is decided in late June or early July each year. That's when you should anticipate a decision in the CSPA case.


Hopefully within the next few months. If the decision is favorable, then it is possible for you to reopen your son's application. However, you will need to look at the decision by SCOTUS to see if and how the law will change. I would recommend using an attorney for this.

Give it a few months, until mid summer and you'll be able to read the decision by then.

We should have it by the end of July. Good luck!
