  • illegal 20 yrs, any help?

    Hello
    I arrived here by airplane with husband and 2 children in 1985.
    We over stayed our tourist visa.
    my children are applying for naturalization this year. (they are 23 and 26yrs old).

    Are there any laws that can protect me.
    Are there any new laws where I can speed up my process?

    My oldest child had to do a removal of deportation in order for a judge to review her case. Because she was a good citizen, made over $40k a year, owned her own property, the judge granted her a permanent residency in 2005.

    My youngest child is obtaining her citizenship through her marriage because they are now married 5 years.

    I have been told there is nothing that can be done for me. Is this still the case, or is there a law or provision that implies otherwise.

    Thanks for your help

      Well, if one of your children is over 21 and US citizen, sure they can petition for you. If you have your proof of entry. Hopefully you have a clean record.

        JF is right. Once your children are naturalized citizens then they can file what is called an I-130 for you. This is a visa application for you. When this is approved you will be immediately eligible to adjust status to a lawful permanent resident. But there are many potential circumstances that could bar you from getting your green card. A denial of the green card could result in you being put into removal proceedings, which could result in you being deported. Once your children are citizens you should contact a competent attorney who be able to figure out if you are really eligible for a green card.
