A: Consult with a lawyer to review eligibility for permanent residence and discuss what the options are: for example, is adjustment of status a viable option or is consular filing better? Applying for a work permit is a separate issue than applying for permanent residence but you may be eligible to file for a work permit if you have a pending application for a green card. Again, these cases can become complicated. You should talk with an immigration attorney.
