Background: I was on a H1 B visa with a software company. Then I got laid off and I was out of status from 04/2001 to 11/2005. I turned 26 on 11/2001.So I was out of status for a brief period of time. I got my GC in 11/2005. Its been almost 5 years now.
For the question: Are you a male who lived in the US at any time between your 18th and 26th birthdays in any status except as a lawful nonimmigrant?
Should I mark YES? and attach a brief statement saying that I was not aware of the requirement? or Should I mark NO?
Appreciate your help.
