my mom started filing for me at age 17 and now the process has reached the point for im awaiting my visa date. but i turned 18 a few months ago. my question is, since the filing age usually freezes, will i get us citizenship because my mother is american? or the filing age is not used, but the current age is? please someone who knows can u tell me?

Was your Mother born here? Were you born here?
If your mother was not born here, went through the process of becoming an American citizen & you weren't born here you too must go through the process. If you were born here & have a birth certificate from an American hospital you are an American citizen.
That's how a lot of people have dual citizenship. Mother/Father born in the US or Mother/Father born elsewhere.
As far as I know 18 (if you were born here) is when you can sponsor a parent sibling to become a US citizen.
Either way you're safe. I'm sure a citizenship is the better choice but a green card works well to.1
