Your father can sponsor you for permanent residency. These visas are numerically limited, and you are third preference. They are currently issuing visas to folks whose cases were filed in December 2000.

The filing fee is $355. There will be other costs down the line, but it's impossible to say what they'll be a decade or so.

What about friends who are unrelated? Is that the same process?

Cheers
