good day to all fellows!
i'm planning to take the nclex-rn next year (2008). i have an uncle who is an lpn and a green card holder. for example, i have passed the nclex and my uncle provides an employer for me, i would like to know who is much more easier to be petitioned? is it my parents or my girlfriend? i have a girlfriend and we have one son. but the son does not bear my name. we're planning to get married before i go to the us, but my parents are saying that it's not time... we should not first get married so that i can first petition my parents... are my parents assumptions true? which is much more easier to be petitioned? my girlfriend and son or my parent?
i also saw these entries in www.uscis.gov
in order for a relative to sponsor you to immigrate to the united states, they must meet the following criteria:
they must be a citizen or lawful permanent resident of the u.s. and be able to provide documentation providing that status.
they must prove that they can support you at 125% above the mandated poverty line, by filling out an affidavit of support
the relatives which may be sponsored as an immigrant vary depending on whether the sponsor is a u.s. citizen or a lawful permanent resident.
if the sponsor is a u.s. citizen, they may petition for the following foreign national relatives to immigrate to the u.s:
husband or wife
unmarried child under 21 years of age
unmarried son or daughter over 21
married son or daughter of any age
brother or sister, if the sponsor is at least 21 years old, or
parent, if the sponsor is at least 21 years old.
if the sponsor is a lawful permanent resident, they may petition for the following foreign national relatives to immigrate to the u.s.:
husband or wife, or
unmarried son or daughter of any age.
in any case, the sponsor must be able to provide proof of the relationship.
as you noticed, for permanent resident who has green cards, the petition is only limited to 1. husband or wife and 2. unmarried son or daughter
i'm hoping for your immediate reply... i'm really bothered now... thanks in advance fellows!

As said in previous post to petition your parents you need to be a US citizen. Easier if married to your girlfriend before your interview and when you submit DS230 and then they can join you, if done afterwards then it can take a couple of years for them to join you in the US. Will take 5 years to obtain US citizenship for your parents once you are in the US
I also don't think your uncle can petition you and even if he could you are looking at over 10 years before you will get a visa
