Me and my sister are child applicant in F4 category. Our original ages are 23 years and 21 years. And under cspa these ages are 20 years 2 months(approx.) And 18 years 1 month (approx). Both of us are not accompanying our parents now but we would like to join them later. So can both of us apply in follow to join to join them later? Do cspa work in follow to join? I am confused because I know that children under 21 can have the benefit of follow to join but I don't know whether this 21 years includes cspa age or not? Are we eligible to enjoy the benefits of follow to join?
Here is why I know about the CSPA cases: this is the most complex and notoriously convoluted category of the U.S. immigration law and cannot be possibly be analyzed online by anyone based on one above paragraph without a full case review.

If you are eligible for the immigrant visa TODAY then apply and obtain such visa. If you do not want to be a resident of the U.S. at this time then consult with an experienced immigration attorney to prepare a strategy for you.
In order for CSPA to last, you need to seek to acquire permanent status within 1 year of your PD becoming current.
