My grandfather was born in the US and my father (born in Mexico) is already a permanent resident and he is applying for citizenship.
The attorney hired by my father (he lives in another city) told him that he should start by filing form I-130 on my behalf for permanent residency and after he gets citizenship he could modify the P.R. process and change it so I can apply for citizenship... He swears that in 4 months or so I will get an answer instead of the current 20-year delay in Mexican cases... I am single and over 21 years old and currently under a J-1 visa... is the lawyer saying the truth?
