Once a United States Citizen Son or Daughter reaches 21 years old, they are eligible to petition their parents for lawful permanent residency. This is an immediate relative petition which means that there is no waiting times for the visa number to become current and it is just processing times.
If this is done, it will permit your parents to come to the U.S. or to stay in the U.S. and to become residents. This example petition will help significantly in that regard.
While the petition can go forward, if your parent is inside the United States, then your parent may need a waiver of inadmissibility for fraud, crimes or unlawful status. You can check out our other books for samples of these waivers.
Should you want a petition where the parent petitions a child or son or daughter, this would be under a different type of petition with a different category of visa waiting time. We have samples of those as well.
