you wouldn’t be able to answer any specific questions?

Thank you for your reply.

I do not see any specific questions for us to answer.

State law forbids any of the attorneys on this site from engaging in legal representation, which means we cannot provide legal advice and can only educate you as to what your legal rights are for you to make your own determination.

Is it possible for a US citizen to petition for an immediate relative even if the relative is out of status?

Thank you for your reply.

Unfortunately, if someone is out of status and has overstayed more than 6 months, while a US Citizen could apply for a spouse, child or parent (immediate relative definition), it is highly unlikely such petition would be granted and the relative will have to also file for a waiver of inadmissibility explaining some good cause for why the relative has overstayed and lost status.

So, yes, it is possible for the relative to apply, but it is getting harder and harder to satisfy the "good cause" required to get the waiver of inadmissibility granted.

Please do not forget to leave positive feedback by clicking on the 5 stars at the top of your page, as the experts are not employees of the site and get no credit for spending time with customers unless they leave positive feedback. Thank you.
