K4 return to home is invalid


The Third Circuit reversed the BIA and remanded, holding that 8 CFR §245.1(i), which effectively bars K-4 visa holders who were between 18 and 21 years old when their parent married a U.S. citizen from obtaining lawful permanent residence without first returning to their home country, is invalid, because it is “manifestly contrary” to the INA. Accordingly, the court found that the petitioner, a K-4 visa holder who was 19 years old when her mother married a U.S. citizen, was eligible to adjust her status to that of a lawful permanent resident.
