Most people think that they can get residency only through their biological parents. Some people know that they can get residency through adoptive parents. But many people are unaware that they can get residency through a step-parent.
Not only does that help people who are not otherwise eligible for a green card but we've also had many cases where we have been able to get our clients residency much quicker. We do this by filing through a US Citizen Step Parent instead of through a permanent resident parent.
To qualify for this, your parent and step-parent have to marry before you turn 18.
