Asked over 2 years ago - Yuba City, CAFlag
I entered the US illegally in 1995 i was 15 years old, later on in '96 my dad apply for residence for myself and then i received my approval notice that same year. Few years later my dad became a US citizen but a lawyer told him he didn't need to change anything for my case so now i have been in process for 16 years now and i haven't get anything yet, i don't have any criminal records and never been married, i am 32 years old now and i was wondering if i could get the green card if i marry my girlfriend who is a US citizen.

I agree. It sounds like you may be 245i eligible. You should speak to an immigration attorney regarding the details of the previous petition that was filed on your behalf. Please feel free to contact me for a free consultation.

Generally if you entered illegally you cannot get the green card without leaving the US, however, in certain instances this can be forgiven. Such instances include if a petition was filed on your behalf before April 30th 2001. It sounds like you may qualify if you marry a US citizen, however more information is needed and I would have to speak with you in person.
