There are a few options available to you to obtain permanent residence. I'm not sure who "she" is who you refer to as a US citizen. However, if this is your mother, depending on when your mother became a US citizen and permanent resident, you may have a way to be a permanent resident rather quickly. Your mother, father, brother or sister may petition for you, however you will have to wait for a visa number which may take several years. You may obtain permanent residency through marriage to a US citizen. There are other options and means to obtain permanent residency. You should really discuss your situation with an attorney because your situation depends on age, timeline, and various factors. ** This is a general answer to your question. It is best to consult with an attorney about your specific situation and goals for the most accurate and reliable legal advice. Good Luck!"
