Are there any options for somebody who entered the country illegally as a minor?

Asked over 2 years ago - West Chester, PA

I came into the country at age 8 illegally due to my brother's medical condition and have been here ever since. I am now 18 and wanting to go to college but unable to. My girlfreind and I have discussed marraige. We have been looking in to what to do to correct my situation but we have not been able to find many options. What can I do?

    Answered . It all depends on how you entered the United States. Did you have a visa when you entered as a child?
