It could take years INS Laws are always changing and it also depends on how they enteredthe country. and if they have ever been in trouble with the law for any thing.or if they are intiled to a waiver. but waivers are not all ways much help they can still be deported.keep copies of all paper work, money orders,letters I mean everything.when you go to INS you may want a lawyer.remember INS are not working for you they work against you.they lose paper work all the time, trust me! I know and then you have to pay for refiling. INS has the right to post pone as long as they want, and there is nothing you can do about that.be prepared it a long and stressful system.If your not a member of a church then become a member. do valunteer work for your community,do whatever you can to make you a good asset to stay here.It's not over till it's over.
