What are my chances if an immigration law is aproved?

Miami, FL |

Came legally in 2000. At the time my dad was a resident. He filed for me late to make adjustment for 245I so i didn't qualify. I received the approval notice 797 later saying that i qualify but i can't adjust my status at the moment. My dad made a mistake with the filling time. What can i expect?
Thanks for your help

Yes, the Senate Bill will help ... let's see what happens after the House takes out their scissors and starts cutting it up.

Thanks. And yes i know that. I hope anything helps for me. We tried to do everything the right way but misinformation was our enemy.


We have to wait and see what the new immigration law would look like. Right now we only have a bill passed in the Senate and need a bill to be passed by the House.

Thank you!


I suggest meeting with a practicing immigration attorney in your area without any delay to form a legal strategy for your future. You cannot rely on relatives making filing for you. The mistakes, as you may already know, are too costly.
