My sister filed a labor cert before Apr 30, 2001 which was denied.
Being a US citizen I filed a petition for her in 2010 . At that time she was out of status as her visa had expired. When her green card petition is approved , will she have to leave the country for like 10 years or so or can she get my status adjusted here. I have talked to a couple of attorneys and am getting conflicting answers. some say that the fact that she had filed a labor petition before Apr 30, 2001 is enough for adjustment. Others say that the fact that she was out of status when she filed the next petition precludes her from adjustment in the country
