A: Did he enter the country legally? Are you a US citizen? Have a free consultation with an attorney anywhere in the USA to discuss these issues and others.

A: If he entered the U.S. without inspection, that is, without a visa, and has lived in the U.S. for more than a year after his eighteenth birthday, then then he will have to seek a provisional unlawful presence waiver. That complicates matters, among other procedures put into place by the current administration.

As a result, I strongly recommend an appointment or teleconference with a competent and experienced immigration attorney, who can spend enough time discussing this matter before you decide what to do. Often, those who spend more time will charge a reasonable fee for a thorough legal evaluation of all of his forms of relief, so that your family can make the best decision for each other, not necessarily the attorneys. If you should decide to hire them, they often will subtract the appointment/teleconference fee for the fee that they will charge. Good luck.

The above is general information, not legal advice, and does not create an attorney client relationship.

A: Hi there: If there was only one unlawful entry and he has no other disqualifying immigration or criminal history, there may be a way through filing an alien relative petition followed by an unlawful presence waiver if you are a U.S. citizen or green card holder. This is a highly complex process so I advise you to hire a reputable immigration attorney to help you and him through the process.
