I've been on these forums before, usually asked this question, but I think I over-complicated it to a point where nobody can answer it, so I'll simplify it down.
I came to the US from Australia in August 2006, and married my LPR Husband, who then filed the I-130. We left the US for 1 week, in which time we went back to Australia, got my son, and retured back to the US in September 2006.
We at the time did not know that we weren't allowed to be in the country, or that we could file an I-485 (according to USCIS). We got a Notice of Action for the I-130, and since then have been waiting it out, and have overstayed.
We've had multiple lawyers that have not given us any help at all. One lawyer told us that we could get a K-Visa ... I've found information on the web to point that we cannot.
We tried to naturalize my husband, but he cannot because of a conviction.
So my question is, does anyone know what we can do to get a work permit or some kind of status? Or does anyone know what we should do in our situation?
My son will be graduating next year, and I do not know how he will be able to apply to colleges without a SSN, so I really need to do something.
If you could help answer this, and have any questions that would help you help me, I'll be glad to answer them and I'd appreciate all your help!
Thank You Kindly.
