How do i apply to become a resident? I have researched and learned about Parole in Place as well as Adjusting my Status. However, i did not come here legally. I came at the age of 9 illegally from mexico. What are my options to file for residency? Is parole in place definitely the way to go? we married in July after 5 years of dating & i plan to move with him in January. I can currently work under DACA, but i would like to proceed with my legal status. What steps do you suggest i take?
