i came to america legaly but i and the kids over stayed our visa for the last ten yeard. my husband get his green card 2 years ago and goin and fild for me and 2 kids.
Immigration Lawyer: Judith Ludwic, Immigration Lawyer replied 8 years ago

He files form I-130 but it will take 4 years. You would have to go back home for your immigrant visa interview. If you leave the US you will face a 10 year bar to returning.

You will need to wait until your husband becomes a US citizen and then you can file for adjustment of status in the US.

If your children are under 21 at the time he becomes a US citizen then they can also file here in the US.

He can apply for his naturalization 3 months before his 5 year anniversary for his adjustment.

i asked because when he put in the papes througgh the company that sponcer him he et throuh in about 6 month wordernin if it hae any thin to do with his sponcer by the company.
Immigration Lawyer: Judith Ludwic, Immigration Lawyer replied 8 years ago

You could not file your papers with him becuase you were illegal. If you were legal you could have filed all together.

It is a totally different process filing through the employer and he did not have to wait like you will have to wait through him sponsoring you.
