Someone had to file an I-130, I-140 or Labor Certification for you on or before April 30, 2001 in order for you to get that "forgiveness" for entering illegally. That is 245(i). Who did that for you?
i am sorry all i can think it will have ben my ex wife and the only other informacion i have is my recit # XXXXX my a number
Well, unfortunately, your current spouse has to petition for you. If she does not, then you cannot get Residency. The ONLY way that you can petition for yourself through that relationship is IF you can prove that she physically abused you or abused you through extreme mental cruelty. If you cannot, then you cannot get a Residency through her. Here is a link:
IF you already have at least a 2 year conditional Residency through that Marriage, then you could file an I-751 waiver, but if you do not, then you cannot get Residency through her. If you do have a 2 year conditional Residency, here is the process:
If you do not, then you will need to divorce and marry another U.S. Citizen (for love, not for the papers), or have a U.S. Citizen son or daughter over 21 file for you, or you can try to have an employer file for you since you have 245(i), though that will most likely take 6 years before your status changes and you won't even have a work permit during that time. I am truly sorry, but your options are limited. Please let me know if you have any additional questions. I would be happy to answer them for you without additional charge. If there is a delay in getting back to you it is either because I am answering other questions or I had to log off, but I will be back with you as soon as possible. It is VERY important that if you are not satisfied, please ask additional questions. My goal is to provide you with top-notch service. And please don't forget to rate me, but please rate me on my service to you, not the state of the law because I have no control over that. Also, a bonus is always appreciated.
