Carpio v. Holder, No. 08-9536

By FindLaw Staff on January 13, 2010 | Last updated on March 21, 2019

In a petition for review of the BIA's denial of petitioner's application for a conditional adjustment of status under 8 U.S.C. section 1255(d), the petition is granted where petitioner met the statutory requirement of being under twenty-one at the time he entered the U.S.  A K-2 visa holder who timely applies for an adjustment of status under section 1255(d) must be under twenty-one when he or she seeks to enter the United States, not when his or her subsequent application for adjustment of status is finally adjudicated.
