I have been in the US since 1998, came as a F-1 student and overstayed my visa. I own property and have 2 US born children, and no criminal record.My brother and i started a restaurant business back in 98 but its under my brothers name .My brother is a US citizen. I help manage the restaurant.Back then i didn't know that i could've filled through the restaurant-we were advised against it by a lawyer who stated that because we were brothers immigration would deny my application. A few employees were petitioned through the restaurant and have received their green card.
Not unless you are married to a USC or your children are over 21 or you qualify for asylum or some other form of relief. Speak with an attorney for more information on these options.
