I am living in USA. I have done my citizen file for my son back in 06/26/2013. He is my son so my visa type will be family based 2B. My son is living in India and he is 23 years old and he is unmarried. So what will be visa interview date and what will be cut of date? Do my child or i have to file applied for child protection act(CSPA)?
Waiting for an answer
Thank you very much.
The answer depends on your status. Are you a resident or a US citizen? If you are a US citizen, your son can expect to wait over seven years for the interview date with the US consulate. If your are a resident, your son can expect to wait over six years. As to the application of CSPA, I suggest that you consult with an experienced attorney to help you with the calculations.
It is unclear from your question whether you are a US citizen or a permanent resident. You say you have done your 'citizen file' for your son but you also say he will be in category 2B, which pertains to petitions by permanent residents. I suggest you consult with a qualified immigration attorney to discuss this process, what to expect in terms of the time frame, and your CSPA question.
Since you filed for a 2B, you didn't do a 'citizen file', you made a greencard sponsorship on a form I-130.
It isn't clear as to whether or not your son was under 21 when you made the application. Nor is it clear as to when you will qualify for US citizenship.
I suggest talking to an attorney via Skype so that you better understand your son's options.

Your question is confusing. It is not exactly clear what your immigration status is at this time. Assuming you are a lawful permanent resident, your son will be waiting six or more years before he will be interviewed. He will need to wait for his priority date to become current before he can even begin the immigrant visa application process. It is not clear why you are referring to the child status protection act if your son is in F2B category. You would be best advised to speak with an experienced immigration attorney to have a better assessment of the matter.
