    Assuming your girlfriend's mom is a citizen (before your girlfriend turned 18, she's automatically a citizen because of her mom's status! Take a look:


    Sec. 1431. Children born outside the United States and residing permanently in the United States; conditions under which citizenship automatically acquired
    TITLE 8, CHAPTER 12, SUBCHAPTER III, Part II, Sec. 1431.
    STATUTE
    (a) A child born outside of the United States automatically becomes a citizen of the United States when all of the following conditions have been fulfilled:
    (1) At least one parent of the child is a citizen of the United States, whether by birth or naturalization.
    (2) The child is under the age of eighteen years.
    (3) The child is residing in the United States in the legal and physical custody of the citizen parent pursuant to a lawful admission for permanent residence.
    (b) Subsection (a) of this section shall apply to a child adopted by a United States citizen parent if the child satisfies the requirements applicable to adopted children under section 1101(b)(1) of this title.

    It is not that simple, and it does not sound that the Girlfriend has filed for AOS.. On top of that, a different sets of rules apply how someone who "grandfathered" citizenship (mother in this case) can transmit that citizenship to his/her children. But it is worth looking into it...

    NO my girlfriends mom is not a USC. My girlfriends grandmother claimed her mom for residency but still nothing. It has been in the "process". What can my girl do!?!!

  9. #9
    When did the grandmother petition for her daughter?
    Your girlfriend may be included as dependant.

    Can you elaborate on "her mother didn't file papers on time so she has nothing"? What papers?

    Are you US citizen?

    Is a student visa an option? When was her 18th birthday? One starts accumulating overstay after the age of 18. If she is 18+, it wouldn't be a good idea to leave the USA to get student visa...

    Just a few thoughts..

    18 years old !! I'll marry her ! Send me some pictures please !!!!!!!!!!!!!
