yasyas, I'm talking about the whole process of getting the green card...These other people got it within 3-4 months. People from NYC have to wait about 6-8 months.

Question
 
Quote:

Otherwise Eligible Immediate Relatives

If "otherwise eligible" to immigrate to the U.S., immediate relatives may adjust status to LPR (get a "green card") in the United States even if they may have done any of the following:

-worked without permission,

-remained in the U.S. past the period of lawful admission (e.g., past the expiration date on your I-94) and filed for adjustment of status while in an unlawful status because of that,

-failed otherwise to maintain lawful status and with the proper immigration documentation, or


-have been admitted as a visitor without a visa under sections 212(l) or 217 of the Act (which are the 15-day admission under the Guam visa waiver program and the 90-day admission under the Visa Waiver Program, respectively).
Can anyone tell me what this is all about? It seems that it contradicts the ban that applies to someone who has been in the U.S. after turning 18. I ask this because my stepdad is a U.S. citizen, and he wants to petition for me, but I'm not sure that's possible since I'm already 18. By the way, I got this from the U.S. immigration website.

Is it too late to consult a lawyer and try to do something about my status since I am only 17 and my step dad is a permanent resident? He is only waiting for his appointment I guess?

OR
I heard it was quicker to return to your home country, graduate in a profession, and get a visa pretty quickly..true? I mean, right now I am applying to college, if I was accepted and left before turning 18 would I be able to come back soon enought to start college with a visa? Or maybe I could petition for deferral for a year or something? Would that work?

Sorry I am so inept at this.

you should leave now that you are 17 and you wont get the banned for no time, then they can petition for you and you can come back in no time

Anyone with common sense should know this but know EXACTLY what you are going to do if in fact you want to leave. Speak to a lawyer, do whatever you gotta do but be absolutely sure there will be a solution. Last time I checked, coming back was no easy task.

Pingpong you should consider being an immigration lawyer. You're already more competent in immigration law than most.
