  1. What is the best option for me? My mother (a LPR at that time) submitted a petition on my behalf and it was approved in October 2019. I was living in my country of origin, and I was visiting her with a tourist visa on 1999 and 2000. I didn't know the benefits of the 245I and I was visiting her on October 2000 and left US on November 30, 2000. I am 47 years old. I came back to US in September 2001 and I overstayed my visa up to today. My mother is a US citizen from 2018. I upgraded my “preference immigrant” category to F1 and I'm trying to explore what is the way to get a green card. I went to different immigration advisors/attorneys and I received mixed opinions: 1. "apply with 245I and see what happens, maybe because it's an old case, they'll give you a break"; 2. "apply with 601a waiver" and 3. "just do the adjust of status"... Please, I need really help. I don't want to apply for something and get a nice deportation letter in my mailbox. Thanks in advance for your help!
