More details to this question:
im legal perm resident and my son got the interview letter for his petition however when he went there on the interview day embassy person said they have changed his category to f2b from f2a we called nvc and they said they processed the petition and at that time he was eligible for interview but embassy says about a month ago he aged out and even cspa leaves him short by 20 days can we do something? how is it possible that interview was scheduled and then on the interview date he was refused saying his category changed?

The interview was scheduled because it is the Embassy who makes the ultimate determination on whether someone is eligible for an immigrant visa under the CSPA. Unfortunately, if the calculation of his age under the CSPA was correct, there is nothing you can do to challenge the determination. Your son will need to wait for his priority date to become current under F2B category. You can read more at

Regardless of your situation, U.S. immigration law can be confusing. Are you seeking to come to the United States for pleasure, business or to attend school? Do you want to stay here just temporarily, for a longer period of time or live here permanently? Are you a permanent resident or seeking citizenship? If you want to come to the United States, immigration lawyers can help determine your eligibility for various types of visas and guide you through the application process. If you've already arrived in the United States, an immigration attorney can determine whether you're eligible for permanent residency and if you can bring family members into the country to live with you. Immigration law firms can also work with individuals who have entered the country illegally, overstayed their visas or violated the conditions of their visas and are facing removal or deportation proceedings.
