Q: Is there a way For us to get permanent residency in USA?
Hi. My husband is DACA recipient . He has his brothers born here (one is then will turn 21 in 2 years). Me, over stayed, so no paperwork right now. Our daughter was born here.
We are looking for any option to get permanent residency here. Do we have any chance or not really?
I will appreciate any advice. Thank you
A: The definition of Immediate relative for the purpose of adjustment of status per INA 201(b) is: Immediate relatives of a U.S. citizen include the U.S. citizen’s spouse, children (unmarried and under 21 years of age), and parents (if the U.S. citizen is 21 years of age or older). Siblings are not listed. In order to get a better understanding of the situation, it is best to have an in-office confidential consultation. Best to you.
A: Your husband's brother may be able to sponsor him when the brother turns 21 but he will have to have a good job to show the requisite income and the application will probably take more than 10 years. If you have been here for more than ten years and your children have any sort of medical problems, you may be eligible for cancellation of removal if you are placed into removal proceedings. But that is a dangerous thing to try. The best advice anyone can give you right now is to start saving your money. Live a good life, don't get into any trouble with the law, pay your taxes, finish as much schooling as you can, and save up loads of money for immigration lawyers and fees when the time comes. This will be a long, uphill climb - but it is possible. God speed!
