How did you enter the US? If you entered legally, then you file for residency. If you entered illegal, only if your petition was filed before 4/30/2001 can you file for residency here in the US otherwise you have to go to your native country to the US embassy, with the problem that you will need a waiver for remaining in the US illegally. Consult an attorney before taking action.
