If you are over 21, you are no longer an "immediate relative", so your mother cannot get you your greencard any time soon. She can, however, file an I-130 petition for you, but there is still a backlog (wait) to be able to adjust, as there is with your EB3 case.

Make sure you stay in valid H-1B visa status or you will not be able to adjust once your priority date becomes current!

If you marry a U.S. citizen, you could probably have your greencard in less than one year from the date of filing the forms.
