Canadian overstayed in USA – Adjustment of Status?
A Canadian citizen can stay in USA for 6 months (180 days). Let’s say if a Canadian citizen goes to USA and stays there for a year. Now, he/she has broken some laws and are now in the USA illegally. Can he/she apply for adjustment of status and become a permanent resident of the United States? Also, can someone please explain “Section 245i and Section 245a” act to me? Thank you.
If the person is the spouse of a US citizen he/she may apply for adjustment of status regardless of the violation. However, it could be denied. 245i is rather involved but would not be applicable in the given situation.
