USCIS Interim Memo for Comment: Age-Out Protection for Derivative U Nonimmigrant Status Holders

"This policy memorandum (PM) provides guidance relating to certain U-3 derivative nonimmigrant petitions that are being held for final adjudication or have had their prior approvals limited in time due to the derivative aging-out.  This PM also authorizes the approval of U-3 derivative nonimmigrant petitions for the full eligibility period of four years, allowing the U-3 derivative to remain in U nonimmigrant status past his or her 21st birthday, if necessary." - USCIS, Oct. 24, 2012.  (Posted 12-12-12; comment period ends 1-10-13)
