A: More information is needed, but this seems complicated, and perhaps, the USCIS made a mistake in granting lawful permanent resident status. In addition, the USCIS can get confused if steps were not taken to clarify how she qualified when approved.

As a result, I strongly recommend an appointment or teleconference with a competent and experienced immigration attorney before there are any other complications. Good luck.

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

A: If she qualifies and wants to become a USC she should apply. You have not stated any reason why she should not apply.

Good luck to you.
