Legal Answers
Q. Have you EEVER been ordered removed, and been deported from the United States?
A: It appears that there was an order for your deportation, but there is no record of your actual deportation. This suggests that you may have either filed for another form of relief or won/filed an appeal. It is advisable to provide more details. It is crucial to discuss these details with your attorney, as they can provide the necessary guidance and advice based on your specific circumstances.
Q. On my green card renewal process, should I consult a lawyer after or before submitting biometrics?
A: It is always advisable to consult with a lawyer, ASAP no matter whether you applied for renewal or planning to apply for that, especially in a situation like yours. In your case, it is essential to discuss your situation with an attorney who specializes in 'crimmigration'—someone well-versed in both immigration and criminal law. This ensures comprehensive guidance that takes into account the complexities involved in addressing both immigration and criminal aspects of your case.
Q. Humanitarian reinstatement need help?
A: In general, the I-130 petition becomes void upon the death of the petitioner, especially if the I-130 is not approved before the petitioner's death. However, there is a distinction based on the location of the beneficiary.

If the beneficiary is within the United States and the I-130 is approved before the petitioner's death, it is possible to seek a substitute sponsor for the I-864 affidavit of support. I have achieved success in such cases.

On the other hand, if the beneficiary is outside the United States, the consulate is not obligated to accept substitute sponsors. In such situations, one would need to demonstrate compelling humanitarian reasons to pursue the case further.

No one can predict the time this whole process takes, (normally a couple of months to a year) but if you have compelling humanitarian reasons discuss it properly with your attorney if you have one who can guide you through this process.
