So my Green CARD Application was denied and I was told I couldn't appeal! They said I needed to leave the country within 30 days or file a motion to reopen or reconsider! Leave for where? I came to the country when I was 7 years old and I am now 32!

I was denied because I admitted I misrepresented myself as a US citizen on my I-9 document and I filed unemployment as well. I told them this because I believe I was a US citizen, everyone in my household was and I remember my mu telling me my i-130 was approved, I thought that was it! I cant afford a lawyer, they canceled my EAD, I can even afford the fees to file a reconsider motion! My daughter is a US citizen and I am a single parent! What is my best bet at this point? Please help!!

If your family was in the US all this time someone was claiming you on their taxes. So, you should have a social security number. I am confused as to why you need green card now.

did your parents take the documents to change your social security number from alien to citizen?

I didnt know i had to change mine either until i started college and had to prove im a citizen because when i applied for financial student loans my social security number came up as alien

Same here...Ive been estranged from my mum since age 15 so I really didnt know there was anything I needed to do, she sent me my approve I-130 at some point and I thought that was it, infact when the Everify issue came up I just gave them that and thats when i learned I needed to do an adjustment of status.

Chiming in with everyone here, you do need a lawyer. Your family should also help you if you were being claimed as a dependent all this time without anyone taking care to fix your legal status when you were still a minor.

Hi,

Did your mom become a U.S. citizen before your 18th birthday?


********************************************************************************

....when it hurts to look back and you're scared to look ahead LOOK beside you and I'll be there.....

There comes a point in your life when you realize who matters, who never did, who won't anymore... and who always will.

So, don't worry about people from your past, there's a reason why they didn't make it to your future.

If you have valid SS # send copy of that in. Someone has messed up. Contact a lawyer as sounds like your name is mixed with someone else's. Don't send in your SS card just copy of it with copy of other US ID. An attorney only needs to write a letter on your behalf on this issue and it should not be costly. It is not an appeal or a lawsuit. You should not have had to apply for any green card to begin with.

You need a lawyer. I know you said you can't afford one, but you need to find some way to pull the money together and get one. Without a lawyer, and a good one, you've basically got no shot. So find a lawyer, and follow Jim's advice.

SS does not make you citizen, even student can have SSN and someone working on L1 or H1 can have a valid SSN too.

SSN office does not track ones citizenship status.

Only things that could save him is if his parents became USC before he turned 18, if not then there is not much a lawyer would be able to do either.

It was his parents responsibility to tell him the truth and make sure he was in legal standing until 18 and after 18 burden shifted to him.

A child automatically acquires US citizenship if one of the child's parents is a US citizen (including by naturalization), the child is under 18, the child is in the US in the custody of the US citizen parent, and the child was admitted to the US for immigration. This last one may be the "gotcha".

The OP was applying for adjustment of status, so he obviously didn't enter the US with an immigrant visa. He would be considered to have been admitted for immigration if his AOS application was approved. However, in order to meet the other requirements for automatic citizenship he would have needed to submit the AOS application before he was 18. It's too late for him to get automatic citizenship.
