A: Hi there! It’s very difficult to evaluate your moms case without more information but since she lived in the US for so long she may have some options:: for example if you are a US citizen you may petition for her to become a legal permanent residency or , she may be eligible for cancellation of removal. I would recommend that you consult with immigration attorney who will evaluate your moms situation and will give you specific advice.

A: The outcome of your objective depends on a variety of factors. Did mom enter the USA legally? despite that mom's out of status. Do you have a green card or are you a US citizen over 21? Does mom have any prior Notices to appear or to self deport from the Immigration Dept? and many more. Discuss with counsel in a totally free phone call. Counsel in any state can hep you. Good luck.
