    how old the beneficiary is? when the petition was filed? is the mother planing to become USC? If yes, when?

    Over 21 years old. The petition was not filed yet. I don't know if the mother plans to become a USC. Does it make a difference? Thanks.

    to the best of my knowledge, the person in question (overstay, over 21) can NOT adjust status in the US regardless if he/she is petitoned by a permanent resident or USC.

    Thanks. I think that a person that is out of status can adjust status if he/she marries a USC. It might be only applicable in that situation but not when a parent petitions him/her. I am not really sure of that.

    You can adjust your status even if you overstayed. But, your going to have a very long wait. And at the moment I would estimate 6- 8 years. The INS here is a joke. What with retrogression, an archaic system, even though it's had more makeovers than than a those makeover television shows. Only way to cut that time is to consider getting married.

    Anybody can petition for anyone.

    The question is whether or not the petition will be approved.
