You should have your mother's case fully analyzed to make sure that she is eligible for the green card. If you are a US citizen over 21, then you are allowed to sponsor your mother. However if she entered the US illegally, this may bar her from getting a card in the US, unless she qualifies under a law called 245(i). Also if she was ever arrested, has not paid taxes or has an overstay, these can present issues. To analyze approval, you need to make an appointment with a competent immigration attorney and bring your mother so she can answer all the relevant questions. Good luck!
