A: Hello, Both may petition for you. However, each will have your Green Card application fall under different categories. The category is important because it dictates how long you will have to wait for a Green Card to become available. You will have to review the DOS Visa Bulletin. The waiting period may be as short as 6 years and as long as 20+ years for a Green Card to become available. You should speak with an immigration attorney to look into possible alternatives. Respectfully.
