I am from Uruguay who came to USA 6 years ago with that special visa, my wife is from republic dominican only with a permanent resident and we have one child born here in NJ. Can she claim for me for my permanent resident?
Friends from other nationality says because of that especial visa to Uruguay and Argentina I can't be claim by a permanent resident...
Your wife can certainly petition for you to be accorded permanent residence. However, due to quota issues it will be a number of years before a visa will be available. Additionally, whether you will be eligible for apply for adjustment of status is unclear by your reference to a "special" visa.
Consult with an experienced immigration attorney who can review your case and advise you how best to proceed.

There is no such thing as a "special visa." Your wife can petition for you but it is probably best if she becomes a citizen first. Before doing anything hire an attorney and have them figure your situation out. My firm handles these types of cases.

Like Mr. Devore, we'd need to know more about this 'special' visa.
