My wife was born in the US and my father was a diplomat . Our immigration lawyer believes that she cannot apply for a green card or any long residency permit as she has left the US after birth. We wanted to get a second opinion and to know whether there are any exceptions to this rule.
I am a bit confused; were her parents diplomats in the US or were yours? Also, was she born within the US in an American Hospital? Does she have a birth certificate issued in the US? If so, there may be a chance she has obtained citizenship at/by birth.
Hope this helps, and good luck.
