I am a 22 year old young professional living here in the United States. English is my first language and I can speak basic Spanish. I came to the US on a work visa but it has expired and I have fallen out of status. I have no criminal records or bad employment history and I have completed my bachelorís degree prior to my arrival. However I wish to work and enroll into school to further my education here. I will willfully pay my taxes and adhere to US laws and policies while gladly accepting second class low paying jobs for a living. Is there any way in which I can adjust my status and get a green card?

If you overstay your visa by 180 days or more, you will become ineligible to adjust status UNLESS you are married to a U.S. citizen. Upon departing the United States, you will be prohibited from re-entering for 3/10 yrs (depending on if the overstay was 180/365 days or more).
In order to be eligible for a greencard, a person needs a petitioner, such as a U.S. company or a U.S. citizen spouse, parent or child over 21.
