I was brought to the US by my uncle as a mini and since then I have been undocumented. I'm 24 and graduating this year from a university due to hard work and no government help. I have a boyfriend who lives in another state and he wants to sponsor me. However this came from him after my uncle in Toronto Canada found out that he can sponsor his orphaned niece. So given I am undocumented he went ahead to file for me but it takes about 24 months, so I'm already in their system. Now my boyfriend wants to sponsor me. I love the US and graduated high school and almost college here. I don't see myself anywhere else even Canada but if I didn't have a choice I will definitely go to Canada. Is it possible to go ahead and get sponsored by my USC bf while my uncle is filing for me in canada. US immigration question.
Your boyfriend won't be able to sponsor you to come into the US. You need to be married to a US Citizen or Lawful Permanent Resident. If you did not come into the United States with a visa, then there isn't much, if anything he could do if you were married. You really need to have a private consultation with an immigration attorney to go over any options.

If you boyfriend is not a US Citizen or LPR he cannot help you. Trying to handle any immigration matter yourself is unwise. You really need to retain immigration counsel and have the attorney handle this. Do not attempt to do anything yourself. Only an Immigration attorney has the expertise to properly fill out immigration forms and put together the right package of documents and other evidence to support the immigration benefits you are trying to obtain. However, especially in these turbulent times, you really need to retain an immigration attorney. This is not a do-it-yourself project! You should focus on retaining experienced immigration counsel, especially now that immigration is much more restrictive since Trump is now President.
