I recently because a US citizen. I have two children I brought here in 2007 on visitor visas which has obviously expired. Along with them my parents came here too - also on visitor visas. Now I am trying to correct everything. Does anyone know if the proper steps to adjust my childrens statuses? In addition - what can I do to petition for my parents? Is there anything I can do? I am unsure if I would qualify at the noted financial level but they are my primary babysitters while I am working.
You do not provide enough information to give you a complete answer. Generally, if your children are under 21, you should be able to get a legal status for them, as well as for your children. You need to meet with an immigration lawyer to evaluate your income and assets to make sure that you have financial capacity to sponsor all your family members. Otherwises, you may find a co-sponsor.
