I worked on a cruise ship for 6 years. Then after my last assignment in Miami in 2002, I didn't re-board the ship & decided to stay in the U.S. I was never petitioned before, so I was told I don't have 245i to get the green card. My 27 year old daughter married a citizen 4 years ago & recently naturalized. She wants to petition for me, but was told I would have to apply for a provisional waiver & go back home first if approved. My husband was a tourist who overstayed. He will be able to get his green card here in America. But can I use him for my provisional waiver once he gets his green card? Or do I really have to wait until he becomes a citizen too?
