My family came to this country legally and overstayed their visit. My mother got a job sponsor and through this lawyer filed for her green-card including my father, brother and myself. When the paperwork was filed, mistakenly I was 16 at the point and they filed for me as a minor. My paperwork was denied and my mother, father and brother were all granted their green cards.
Through this time I am now 20, I have had to pay for college, without any student loan assistance or financial aid. I suffered many monetary loses.
