I'm a 25 year-old Mexican woman. I entered the U.S. without inspection when I was 3 years old. I've lived in Chicago since; have not left the country; no criminal record. Family members have never petitioned for me. I obtained my Associates Degree in Liberal Arts in May2009. I got married in May2011.
I have been living with my spouse, who is a natural born U.S. Citizen, for over a year & a half.
We spoke to a lawyer, and she said that the process involved me leaving the country, where my family support system is, for an indefinite amount of time. However, she mentioned that there might be a change in the waiver process, where I may be able to apply within the U.S. It would be great if I could remain in the country while the process is resolved. When will the waiver change start?
