Are you the beneficiary of an I-130 family petition? What is the immigration status of your parents? What was the crime you were convicted of? If must have been serious for you to have been deported and not granted voluntary departure. These are just a few of the many questions that need to be answered to properly evaluate your case. Good luck.
I suggest that before you enter a plea, hire an immigration attorney to work with your criminal defense attorney. The immigration attorney will evaluate your complete history and work with the criminal defense attorney to hopefully eliminate or diminish any immigration consequences. Good luck.
Adoption is a complicated matter and based on your post, it appears that the adoption you suggest would not be a real adoption. Adoptions within the same family are closely reviewed by USCIS. I suggest you speak with an experienced immigration attorney before going down that road.
Yes he can. He is an after acquired derivative beneficiary of your petition. He does no need to show independent 245(i) eligibility. I have successfully handled many of these types of cases. Good luck.
You do not lose your F-1 status if you apply for asylum. Given your recent travel to your home country, I suggest you take the time to consult with an experienced immigration attorney before you file. He/she will review the facts of your case and determine the strength of your case before you apply. Go to www.aila.org and find local attorneys that represent asylum seekers from your home country. Good luck.
To be able to determine if you can avoid deportation, much more information is needed. For immigration purposes, juvenile dispositions are not convictions. Also, your immigration status is also important. The most important information you should know is that if you have not enter a plea and you have a criminal defense attorney, make sure he/she knows your immigration status before agreeing to anything. Consult with an experienced immigration attorney.
Go to www.aila.org and find attorneys in Los Angeles that regularly represent asylum seekers. Once you get a few names, call them and ask them if they have represented clients such as yourself. Good luck.
