Immigration Law Questions? Ask an Immigration Lawyer.
Hello,my name is Judith. Thank you for this opportunity to answer your questions.
Do you have papers filed for you to get legal status?
You didn't get status when your mother did?
Not sure what you mean by papers filed? I haven't done anything other than start than application to renew my green card using an I-90 form, I haven't been called for the interview yet. I did read that the entire process from the application to actually receiving the physical visa can take months, which I am being evicted and cannot get a new place without some form of ID.
To answer your second question, I do not know what you mean by getting status, this is all new to me, so I have no idea of what status I would have received after she became a citizen.
OK, you are renewing your resident alien card?
You filed an I-90?
Do you have a receipt?
Yes, I have filed form I-90, and yes I have the receipt.
You can get a temporary resident alien stamp in your passport showing you have legal status to renew your driver license by making an appointment with the local immigration officer.
Go to the link on the left and make the appointment.
