    Answered . As of now the U.S. Congress has not passed any immigration reform. We can not advise you at this time on what class of persons would qualify until the legislation is passed.
    However, you may have other avenues open to you to remain in the United States. Please contact us directly for an in-depth consultation regarding your particular situation.

    Answered . First there is currently no amensty. The issue will be whether if some form of legalization program is passed you will qualify for RPI status - which stands for Registered Provisional Immigrant . The issue is not how long you overstayed but will be based on a variety of factors. One threshhold factor will be when you last entered the US, so there will be a cut-off, currently it is set at Dec. 31, 2011. Be advised you should consult an attorney whenever if it is passed to determine your potential for eligibility. For more information, goto this website "A Guide to Understanding S. 744"

    Answered . There is no such benefit as an Obama amnesty. If you overstayed, you are in violation of your status and are accumulating unlawful status. You are also removable (deportable).
