    Default Undocumented Immigrant

    Well, my story is simple. I came to the US in 1996, at the age of 6 with an I-94. My I-94 has expired. My parents are here on visas and they are able to work legally. I am now 18 years old and a second year student at a university. I have graduated from a high school here. My question is, what are my options as to getting on track for permanent residency/green card, if there are any. My main desire is being able to acquire a driver's license and achieve true independence and the ability to work legally and make my own money.

    My hope is dwindling. I have heard all about the DREAM Act, and AB-540. They are all wonderful things, yet that is not enough to be fully free and independent.

    What visas are your parents using? Are you sure that you do not have a dependent visa associated with one of theirs?

    There's no easy path. If you have not yet overstayed by 180 days past your 18th birthday, you should be able to return to your nation of origin and apply for lawful entry without triggering a period of ineligibility.

    The DREAM Act did not become law.
