    Lawyer agrees

    Answered . More information is needed. Did you enter the U.S. with a visa? If not, when did you enter the U.S.? If not, were you directly or indirectly petitioned by April 30, 2001, so that you can grandfather-in and pay the penalty based upon Section 245(i)?

    If so, then the answers provided are correct. If not, then I strongly recommend an appointment with a competent and experienced immigration attorney.
