Can the parents (on a work visa) of a U.S.-born child get Green Cards?

Yes, but let me explain. 

  1. If your child is under the age of 21 then their status won’t help you get a green card. You should pursue that through your employer.
  2. If your child is over the age of 21 then they could petition for permanent residency for you.
