You can do so under two circumstances: 1). If your child is over the age of 21 with the ability to
support you, your child can file a residency petition for you, if you came into the U.S. with a visa. If you
did not enter the U.S. with a visa, you may be eligible for a waiver (or pardon) that may allow you to
adjust to legal status, or you may also adjust status if you are 245(i) eligible or 2). If you have been in the
U.S. for 10 years and you can demonstrate that your child of any age will suffer an exceptional and
extremely unusual hardship if you are removed to your native country, you may file for cancellation of
removal or deportation.
