Believe me, it would take over 24 years for them to get green cards through you. (My wife is a Filipina.) If they qualify for temporary work visas, an employer in the US may sponsor them, and the procedure is relatively quick.
My case status still shows that still pending since March 2013. I have tried to talk or hire many lawyers about my case. Most of them say the same thing ”there is nothing I can do except given them pressure” or they said that my files are somewhere back in the immigration office. One of them... Read more »

You can’t do anything, except maybe act as a sponsor. If his girlfriend is a citizen or permanent resident, she can first marry him and then file a visa petition for him.

Really depends upon how much time has passed since school enrollment date. If a couple of days or so, check with your FSA or foreign student advisor, and you may be put back into F-1 status. Otherwise you may be now out of status. Consult with an immigration lawyer regarding your options.
I came when I was 7 years old, I am now 23 years old, currently enrolled in college and have a clean record. If I am eligible how long would the process take? and would there be a penalty where I would have to return to the country I was born?

We can't afford the legal fees. I did some research, and it said on a site that a lawyer is not needed. I have printed off all the necessary paperwork and she has already done her immigration physical. Can we send this in with the money order needed?
