Do I need an immigration attorney?

Asked about 1 year ago - Mcminnville, OR

I have 2 brothers who were deported about 3 or 4 years ago. They had drug related felonies on there record.we are in the process of trying to expunge the felonies. We have good chances of being able to. So my real question is. Once they have a clean record can they get there green card back? If so what is the process?prior to being deported they both had their residents card for over 20 years. Is there a chance they can come back to the US? Thanks for looking :)

    Answered . No. Unless the charge was for possession of less than 30 grams of cannabis nothing short of re opening the case and a new final disposition or a pardon is going to matter to immigration. Having the case expunged will not mean that they have a clean record. They will not get their green cards back.

    Answered . Expungement does not help in immigraiton context. You do need an immigraiton lawyer and much sooner than you think.
