A: I regret that your son cannot petition you as an immediate relative until he is 21 years old. Also, the decision whether to petition you is within his control. He may be disqualified when he reaches 21 years of age depending upon the situation.

You do not qualify to adjust status based upon your son. Instead, you should seek a teleconference with further options with a competent, experienced and ethical immigration attorney. You should also plan to return to your home country, because you intended to visit the U.S., not immigrate, when you presented a non-immigrant B2 visitor visa. Should you have any further options, you should carefully consider what is best while meeting with an immigration attorney. Good luck.

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

A: Having a child who is a United States citizenn does not qualify you to adjust status in the USA.
