Ok. I ask that you PLEASE not log off without leaving a positive rating using smiley faces or 3 or more stars. This is VERY important and we do not finish just because it says, "To finish...". You may continue to ask additional questions without additional charge on this same thread even after you leave a positive rating.
Unfortunately, I am going to have bad news for you. Please understand that I am not given a salary to be here and I am taking my time to write an explanation for you. It will not be good news (of which I have no control), the solutions you will not like and are inconvenient, but I am still taking my time and the ONLY way I am compensated is if you leave a positive rating in regards ***** ***** service. Please rate my service, not whether the news is good or not. You are not charged again and we may continue to communicate without additional charge after you rate positively. I hope you understand and I am very sorry to tell you this, but the only U.S. Citizens that can apply for you to stay would be a U.S. Citizen spouse or a U.S. Citizen son or daughter that is over 21. Your mother can file for you, but it will first take a few years before it will be available for use and then when it is able to be used, you would have to leave the U.S. to use it and risk the 10 year bar. What you can use to avoid the 10 year bar is the new I-601A waiver. It is a new procedure. What has changed is that before, a person had to leave the U.S. and spend around 15 months or so while waiting for their appointment at the U.S. Embassy or Consulate
in their home country and then HOPE that they got approved, but the change is that now the same person can apply inside the U.S., get a pre-approval, and then with that pre-approval they can leave the U.S. for just a few days or even a day, present themselves for a scheduled appointment at the U.S. Embassy or Consulate, and then get the final approval and come back as long as there are no other reasons of inadmissibility, just having entered the U.S. illegally or having overstayed. Here is an official link:
So unless you have a U.S. Citizen spouse or son or daughter over 21 that petitions for you or you win Asylum or similar protection, your choices are limited. I am truly sorry. I wish I had better news for you.
Now that I have given you an answer, you may rate me positively OR ask for additional information. Please do not rate me negatively for bad news or things that you may already know. That does not help you or me. I am here to help you and I am on your side. Give me a chance to help you. All you have to do is respond asking for additional information. You are NOT charged per question nor are you charged per response. If this seems a little complicated or overwhelming, I can also offer you an additional service for a small fee where we can speak in private over the phone or through email that may be helpful (this is a public forum where anyone can read the responses). Feel free to decline it, but if you do, please remember that I am not given a salary, so the only way that I am compensated is if you rate me positively. So at least please use the smiley faces and a bonus is always appreciated if you feel I earned it. Also, your question does NOT close just because it says, "To finish". I can still answer additional questions for you without additional charge. If I do not hear from you, I will automatically send that additional offer request. Thank you for your understanding and if you would like to request me in the future, just type: FOR GUILLERMO in the subject line and message box.
