This could be a fraud issue.
Why did he put that on your papers?
What was his status when he filed for you? Citizen?
He was married to someone else
Is that how he got his green card?
Did he divorce your mother legally?
I divorced my mom legally
Then why did he put she was dead?
I need to understand this to be able to answer you correctly. Did he not know she was alive? Did she abandon you and disappear?
He did not know she was a life
Did you know or did she disappear and now you just found her?
I don't know
Did you know if she was alive?
I found out that she was alive before I came here in 2007.
she and my dad are from Mauritania, but was leaving in Senegal and I have senegalese citizenship.
Great, this is getting more helpful.
Did the consul ask you anything about your mother or did you know she was alive when you filled out the immigrant visa application?
Did you lie on the application that she was dead when you knew she was alive?
That is very important.
And how old were you when you went on the visa interview?
I lie on the application that's what my dad told me say. I was 21 at that time
Then you cannot file for your mother.
You risk having your file re-opened and being stripped of your citizenship.

You will need to begin a new question thread for this new problem.
You cannot go back and fix a fraud without risking being deported.

That is also a lie and fraud.
