Asked in Immigration Law for Washington

Q: I'm inquiring about green card eligibility for a G-1 Visa holder's daughter, (who is also a G-1 visa holder).

I'm inquiring about green card eligibility for a G-1 Visa holder's daughter, (who is also a G-1 visa holder and has stayed in the U.S for five years, and will attend college in New York, meaning she'll have stayed in the U.S for seven years between the ages of 5 and 21 as stated in the USCIS for green card eligibility for children of International Organization Employees), but in the website they don't mention the different types of visas that could actually be eligible. My question is simply to see if she could be eligible for a green card.

A: It is possible, but all adjustment applicants must 'not be' otherwise inadmissible. Other requirements may create challenges. A person's ability to adjust status also depends upon the discretion of the Attorney General. It is not obligatory. I strongly recommend an appointment with a competent and experienced immigration attorney before there are unexpected complications. Good luck.
